‘What a great choice for a beautiful birthday meal. The service was excellent and very welcoming, and the food was beautiful. I ordered the pork belly which was just divine and my partner had the flathead. Needless to say, we also had to try the dessert so ordered the chocolate fondant and Eton mess! Didn't think Pierre’s was overpriced at all! Definitely will recommend to others travelling to Launceston. Thanks for a lovely night out.’ – Sher Sher, Urbanspoon
‘Pierre's is my absolute favourite restaurant in Launceston. I make it a point to have at least one meal there when I'm in Launnie, and I've not had a bad one yet!
The dining area is long and narrow which turns out quite good. There is bench seating along both walls, and a wide walkway down the middle. No pulling in your chair to let someone walk pass round your table. The staff also separate the diners as much as possible, no squeezing everyone into the same section like at some places.
The menu changes with the seasons, and my favourite is the steak from their classic menu. Scotch steak cooked exactly how you like it with a round of herbed butter on top, nice French salad greens, frits like frits are meant to be, and the tinniest little jug of red wine jus. Its great sauce, and you wouldn't need any more then what's in the miniature jug!
Dessert is wonderful too, and I can never pass up their perfect crème brulée. Not too heavy, just the perfect consistency.’ – Sarah Hobart, Trip Advisor
‘Pierre's restaurant in the heart of Launceston has been an institution for decades. New owners have now remodeled 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.’ – Sue Dyson and Roger McShane
‘We breakfasted here early on a Saturday morning as we passed through the town. We ordered Eggs Benedict, Fresh Tomato, Spinach and Avocado on Sourdough and coffee. The Eggs Benedict was served on smoked shaved leg ham and the eggs were soft and runny and cooked to perfection with a generous amount of Hollandaise sauce. For the other dish ordered, the fresh cherry tomatoes were incredibly fresh and sweet and the flavours were delightful. Coffee was excellent. Staff were friendly and service was quick. This is a great place for breakfast. Highly recommended.’ – Lee T., Trip Advisor
