When we opened Pierre Victoire in 1996 we wanted to create somewhere for people to enjoy traditional French food, cooked properly by skilled chefs, in an informal environment at prices everyone can afford - the way they do in France. Today, we're still doing just that - and we're busier than ever!

Our menus follow the seasons and the ingredients we use are fresh and sourced as locally as possible. When we change the menus everyone gets involved and has their say - not just the chefs and the restaurant team, but our customers, too!

Today we have a long list of 'signature' dishes such as Chicken Liver Parfait, Moules Marinières, Escargot, Fondue Savoyarde, Duck Confit, Bouillabaisse, Onglet à l'Echalotes, Tartiflette, Crème Brûlée, Ile Flottante and Chocolate Fondue. These are our customers' favourites, and you'd be unlucky not to find many of them on the menu when you visit us.

For years Pierre Victoire has been Oxford's busiest and best-loved truly independent restaurant, and we have earned a reputation that we are proud of. It's nice to be recognised by organisations like Hardens, but more important to us is the opinion of our customers, who consistently make us No 1 on review sites like Trip Advisor, and voted us winner of the inaugural Oxfordshire Restaurant Awards, Public Vote. These accolades are a tribute to our dedicated team, many of whom have been with us for years, and take a great pride in what they do, whether they are cooking the food, or serving it.

Our customers love our Prix Fixe lunches and Prix Fixe dinners. They love our wines, many of which are sourced by Chalgrove Wines, exclusively for us, from small, independent growers. They love the rustic charm of the simple wooden furniture, fresh flowers and candles. They love being able to see into the kitchen and say 'hello' to the chefs. And they love our staff and the service they give, which is usually informal, but always knowledgeable and friendly.

From a romantic candle-lit dinner for two, to a graduation party for fifty, Pierre Victoire is perfect for any occasion - but it's always best to book, so please call us or drop by and reserve your table.
