Went there with friends and it was a very pleasant experience. The set menu has many options pleasing everyone. We had a very good waiter from Istanbul who provided us an efficient and perfect service! I would advise to book as it is very popular!

We have always enjoyed our dining experience at Pierre Victoire. The set lunch/early evening menu is great value with a good selection of choices for each course. However, the whole fish option means just that, so if you prefer not to see the fish head...More

Can’t fault this lovely little bistro. The mussels, (I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again) are THE BEST. Consistently excellent. The plaice was perfectly cooked, and the carbonnade authentic, (huge portion!) Didn’t have room for dessert but the coffee was great. And the...More

A very busy Saturday evening but the service was attentive as ever. The portions are well presented and a good size. It is loud but then it is Soho on a Saturday. Downstairs is quieter but not such a buzzy atmosphere. The duck is excellent....More

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a
compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,
and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red
Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the

Not sure but I doubt it. Usually not allowed, however, there are tables outside on the pavement so if the weather’s nice you might be lucky.

Yes, they definitely do gluten free but I would check in advance. I took a vegan with gluten and dairy issues and they provided a really good meal. No dress code. It's a very very casual place!

Pierre Victoire Bistro has been established as one of Soho's most charming French restaurants since opening its doors to London in 1998. The classic French Bistro style décor complete with an eclectic collection of art pieces and chalkboards detailing the daily specials sets an inviting scene in which to enjoy a fabulous and very affordable French meal. Set menus are a prominent feature of this great little restaurant where a two course set lunch will set you back just £9.90 and the two course evening meal is a steal at just £12.90, both with plenty to choose from. Enjoy the restaurant's famous Steak & Frites as well as a wide range of fresh fish and seafood. The menus are changed regularly so there is always a delightful surprise waiting. Lunch times are ideal for an informal business lunch or just a long lazy afternoon with friends. In the evenings the restaurant is transformed into to a romantic restaurant where customers dine over candle light to music from one of the rather eccentric and charming pianists when it takes their fancy! The intimate basement lounge is available for exclusive hire at no further cost and can be styled to comfortably accommodate groups of up to 25.
