Located in Friargate, the restaurant quarter of Derby, within a building that dates back to the 1600s, our Derby bistrot is well worth a visit no matter whether you’re near or far.

We embrace French culture and love of food and celebrate all that is great about French cuisine. All of our dishes are freshly prepared in our bistrots by our chefs, using a mix of artisan provincial ingredients and carefully selected locally sourced ingredients, in the style of typical continental bistrots.

A firm favourite with our customers, our Derby bistrot provides a truly authentic experience, that you would find in any French town. There is a second floor and we can cater for larger groups and parties.
