Launceston Restaurant Reviews
This is a classy restaurant and we have been to some of the very best. Beautifully decorated, comfortable and warm on a very cold Launceston night we had great friendly service and great food. We used to go to Fee & Me and despaired when she closed but now no visit to Lonnie will be complete without going to Pierres.

As a business consultant and as a diner, I must congratulate Pierre's and all of its staff for creating a place that we can go to experience delicious food; fast and courteous service; and a relaxing and good time all in a well designed and cosmopolitan environment. I've probably said it all before, but I really wanted to say it in writing. Thank you each of you for bringing such a treat to Launceston and raising the bar on the quality of service and value.
"Pierre's restaurant in the heart of Launceston has been an institution for decades. New owners have now remodelled the interior giving it a more contemporary feel and have changed the menu to reflect the food of France. It is a reliable and relaxing venue for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
The long, thin space has been attractively decked out in bold red, broken by large food-oriented paintings that line the walls. Table settings are informal and the service relaxed, but the food is quite serious and the wine list traverses Australia and southern Europe (heavily weighted towards Bordeaux).
Your meal might include a very tasty steak tartare (served with all the usual condiments) or local mussels cooked in a fine broth or a hearty provincial terrine in the French style or brilliant slices of cured salmon teamed with beetroot, orange and horseradish salsa. This might be followed by a long-cooked neck of lamb or a steak with Cafe de Paris butter. Caring service adds to the dining experience in this lively, friendly bistro that seems to have another fifty years ahead of it."
