Located in the residential neighbourhood of Sherwood, north of Nottingham city centre, Le Mistral is a local French-style bistro offering delightful Gallic charm, a range of menus and blackboard specials. Full of character, with quintessentially French decor and relaxed atmosphere, delectable cuisine and fine wines, Le Mistral attracts a regular crowd of diners to its location on Mansfield Road for lunch and dinner, seven days a week. To guarantee a table, booking in advance is advised.
Easily spotted along Mansfield Road by its bright red facade, you could easily mistake Le Mistral in Nottingham’s quiet neighbourhood of Sherwood for a quaint restaurant in rural France, and the dishes on offer here are as equally as rustic as the atmosphere. At lunchtime you’ll find classics of casual French dining on the menu such as omelette and boeuf bourguignon. Come evening time, begin your meal by sharing le camembert (camembert served with garlic, herbs and a white wine sauce served with stacks of crusty baguette and crudites), before moving on to another French favourite.
We recommend the canard boulangere (confit duck leg with boulangere potatoes, fresh vegetables and puy lentils topped with a balsamic and red wine reduction) or the moules frites (freshly steamed mussels with pommes frites and crusty bread, served with or without cream). For an elegant French experience in Nottingham, book a table at Le Mistral on Mansfield Road, close to the corner with Daybrook Street.
Loved the cidre moule and beautiful crackling on the pork, overall the food was very good. Liked the choice of wine but was comparatively expensive. Attentive service.
We came for the first time last Saturday and we enjoyed it so much that we came again last night! The food, The ambiance and the service we’re second to none. Absolutely fantastic place and we sure will be coming back again.
Wonderful - one of the best roasts i've had (which i didn't cook myself). I would fully recommend le mistral, friendly and helpful staff. I love it!
