The site will have a downstairs bar area for more casual dining with a bar menu unique to the Torquay site, while the upstairs restaurant features a sea food menu. The restaurant will run over 200 covers in one night when it is at full capacity.
Co-founder of Bistrot Pierre Rob Beacham said: “The Bistrot Pierre approach to dining is relaxed and welcoming. Our collection of bistrots delivers affordable French gastronomy using carefully sourced, authentic, ingredients that change with the seasons.
“Each bistrot is styled a little differently to complement the building it is in but whilst our look changes, customers must be able to expect the same personal, attentive service and high quality provincial French food wherever they choose to dine with us.”
The restaurant is looking for duty managers, chefs, full-time bar and floor staff, kitchen porters and part-time waiting staff to join the new establishment.
Beacham said: “It gives us a sense of satisfaction to be expanding during tough economic times, but it is the people at the sharp end, working on the restaurant floor and in the kitchen that should take the credit. They create the customer experience that has led to our success.”
