Pierre Victoire Bistrot
oxfordshire
 
 
Little Clarendon Street is one of Oxfordshire’s most cosmopolitan streets with bars aplenty and a good selection of restaurants, but you’d be hard pressed to find a better restaurant in the whole of Oxfordshire than Pierre Victoire.

Winner of the inaugural Oxfordshire Restaurant Awards Public Vote, this smart French restaurant is a banker when it comes to quality of food, great atmosphere and value for money – an extremely difficult ‘tricolor’ achievement. It really is a shame that the restaurant can’t adorn the trottoir in front of the restaurant with al fresco dining, but, as the name suggests, Little Clarendon Street isn’t big enough!

We had the pleasure of our 16 year old son’s company on a rare night out, and Ed is hard to please when it comes to food, I can tell you! But as soon as the fresh bread was served, Ed savoured every morsel.

Tina and I chose the pan fried tuna steak served with roasted vegetables and sunblush tomato dressing from the specials board, whilst Ed selected the meatballs from the main menu. I’ve never had a tuna steak like it. For a starter, it was ideal in size, but moist, tasty and beautifully presented. I had to pass comment to our ever attentive floor manager (who was excellent by the way), who promised to pass on our compliments to the chef. Ed devoured the meatballs and assured me they were ‘safe’ which I presume means good in ‘16 year old speak’.

For the main event, Tina stayed loyal to the specials board, choosing the oven baked poussin set on a gratin dauphinois, sautéed mushrooms and haricots verts with a truffle jus. Tina was as enamoured with this as her starter. I went for the Escalope de Porc, flambéed in Calvados and served on spring greens, with a prune and cream sauce. For £12.50, it’s simply remarkable value. A night out with the parents can be a bit of a chore for a 16 year old, so Ed was determined to make hay. He plumped for the Filet de Bœuf, an Oxfordshire fillet steak served with parmentier potatoes, roasted tomato, mushrooms & haricots verts, and a Béarnaise sauce – and for good measure, even though it was an ‘or’ on the menu, Ed had ‘red wine jus’ as well! He loved it – including both sauces!

We had to leave it there… no we didn’t! We had dessert….and it was very good! I was talked into the Apricot Frangipane with Amaretto chantilly and Ed had the Praline Cheesecake with a bitter ganache.

In the words of a 16 year old, Pierre Victoire is safe, very safe! Make sure you get along soon – but just to be on the really ‘safe’ side, make sure you book!
