Enjoy a taste of the Parisian life in Perth at Pig’Halle, an authentic French brasserie found on South Street. Inspired by the owner’s favourite restaurant in Paris called ‘Pig’halle’, this charming restaurant in the city centre serves up French classics in a quirky setting that combines modern and traditional influences. Located just steps from the River Tay, Perth’s Pig’Halle is right in the heart of the action, making it the perfect spot to grab a bite to eat after a long walk or some sightseeing around the city centre. Whether it's for lunch, a pre-theatre dinner, or a relaxing evening meal, Pig’Halle is a popular choice among the city’s francophiles and gourmands, so to guarantee a table, making a reservation ahead of time is recommended.
With all of the style and flair you would expect from a Parisian-inspired restaurant, Perth's Pig’Halle is the perfect place for a romantic date or a sophisticated meal out, decorated with red velvety cushioning and sleek, black wood, as well as a mirrored wall depicting the Paris metro map. It’s not just the beautiful decor that sets Pig’Halle apart from the rest of the city’s French restaurants, but the food too. Great care is taken in sourcing the produce – the meat and seafood is sourced from local suppliers and the bread is baked fresh every day by Pig’Halle’s sister restaurant Duo.
We recommend starting off your meal with a bowl of traditional French onion soup or the moules marineres, before moving on to a juicy steak, or the cassoulet from the South of France with confit of duck leg, pork belly, Toulouse sausage and haricot beans. Then, finish on a sweet note by going for the pistachio creme brulee, paired with a glass of fine French wine. Book a table at Pig’Halle on Perth’s South Street now for a charming Parisian experience without leaving Perth’s city centre. Bon Appetit!
An excellent lunch as usual, nice atmosphere and exceptionally tasty food and a wine list that is comprehensive but not expensive. The cafe gourmand is outstanding value.
Not had a disappointing meal at this restaurant food has always been cooked and presented to a high standard and the service doesn’t let it down. The restaurant is quirky and well worth a visit.
Great lunch with great service. Pighalle has never failed to please and Paula is always very welcoming. My all time favourite restaurant and will be going back soon.
As always, we were given a very warm welcome. I was given assistance with the menu as I must remain gluten free for medical reasons. Our choices were delicious. This remains our favourite restaurant in Perth and we will definitely be back.
Excellent for value, quality, and for the menu-choices available, with quality rather than quantity their (and our) priority. The plats du jour were a richly flavoursome squash soup with a delicious little ball of duck meat as garnish (it had a nice level of heat from some ginger I think, making it just the job on a frosty day). The braised pigs cheeks were marvellously tasty and tender with some creamy mashed tatties and then a blueberry clafoutis with mint and chocolate ice cream rounded it all off. Having gone to this restaurant fairly often in the past, it is nice to observe that if anything it gets better and more consistently good as time passes. Their chef(s) can really cook. No problem getting a seat on a Sunday afternoon (I booked a couple of days before). Three courses each then coffee (no wine) plus some extremely fresh and tasty bread all for under £30 per mouth is pretty good going these days. The service from our French waiter was warm, friendly and attentive without ever being overdone. Then the manager was doing her rounds as well to double-check that we were happy. We were, very. It's the real bistro deal, which if it was was pricier, it wouldn't be, so I wouldn't go. Nice to feel looked-after rather than shaken down. Thank you.
Pig'Halle is a cosy, friendly French restaurant in Perth, Scotland. The décor gives the ambience of being in an inner city Paris eatery whilst the friendly staff make customers feel at home and very welcome. The menu is varied and reasonably priced and the food is beautifully served and tastes exquisite. I would not hesitate to recommend Pig'Halle to anyone. An absolute treasure of a restaurant and the ultimate dining experience!
You love "A Hero in France" by Alan Furst. You love France profonde. You imagine arriving in Gard du Nord, Paris taking line 4 to Les Halles. Alternatively take the A85 to Perth for impeccable food and fantastic atmosphere at Pig'Halle. Queen scallop in Noily Pratt. And then - slow cooked pig cheek, confit of pigs trotters, black pudding, roast loin of pork, baked apple, red wine sauce and chips; and to settle the meal banana and chocolate souffle. Champagne, Corbieres and a desert wine. There was also coffee and pistachio macarons. Hic. Tout est bon dans le chochon.
We took some friends along to the Pig'Halle for lunch today and they were most impressed. The service was excellent and the menu very tempting. Those of us who had the Pork Shank Special were particularly pleased with our choice. For deserts we had the "four little surprise delights" with coffee - and we were delighted with what had been arranged onto the slates which were placed before us. All in all a great meal - we will certainly recommend it to other friends which I am sure will make us very popular...
Love Pig Halle in Perth! Been several times for lunch for birthdays and days when we needed cheering up. Food is deliciously varied and French, as are the very friendly helpful staff. Great wine list - we had the Malbec Mont Rocher - soft and plumlicious. Our lunch included fresh homemade bread with two dips - one with chickpeas and garlic and the other tapenade as we poured over the menu. Followed by eggs en cocotte with black pudding and fragrant French Onion soup for starters; meltingly moreish Boeuf Bourguognon with creamy mash and a side of crisp fresh vegetables to follow. Puddings were offered and looked delicious, but were reluctantly refused (as we were too full) and we finished with excellent coffee and more Malbec. Another long, leisurely, contented lunch in Pig Halle - the perfect way to spend a Sunday!
Issues: Service was slow and it appeared to be due to a lack of staff, while the restaurant was busy which I think lead to all the issues listed. When our drinks order was finally taken, they brought the wrong flavour of soft drink out. We were never asked if we required further drinks, even when glasses were empty. We had to ask for more table water when we ran out. Also received the wrong flavour of Macarons for the dessert due to having run out of the requested, didn't have a suitable replacement and was still charged for them all when informed we wouldn't eat them all (as no-one wanted the coffee ones) Positives: Food was very nice. Would return as the food and setting are both good, but would need to allow for plenty of time.
