Bistrot Verite Birkdale Southport About Us

About Us

Marc & Michaela opened Bistrot Vérité in 2009, fulfilling their dream of running a small, authentic French-style restaurant. In 2017 Jacques joined his father in the kitchen having trained and worked in Michelin starred restaurants La Trompette in Chiswick and Restaurant Simon Radley at the Chester Grosvenor. Under Marc’s guidance, Jacques became Head Chef at Bistrot Vérité in 2018. Second son, Charlie is also a permanent member of the front of house team who bring their own relaxed style of service to this family neighbourhood restaurant…

“Just as a French bistro should be”



Our aim is simple, to serve fresh, seasonal food but with a Gallic theme.

The north west is home to wonderful food producers, from Formby asparagus to Goosnargh duck to Southport shrimps and most of our ingredients are sourced locally to Southport and delivered fresh to us every morning.


“Gutsy, traditional French cooking”




We aim to delight with the sights, sounds, aromas and, most of all, taste of great cooking and to feed people well. We put our heart and soul into it and want our customers to enjoy every mouthful, every moment in Bistrot Vérité. Explore our cosy, authentic French-style restaurant and feast your eyes on some of our mouth-watering dishes.
