It may be situated in the converted remains of Darien House Hospital, Edinburgh's first mental asylum, but Hotel Du Vin Bistro ensures that the minds of its diners will be firmly focused on just one thing - quality French fare.

The interior is a delight - from the tasteful, subtle decor to the high ceiling and ever-visible wine cellar, every nuance of comfort and quirkiness has been carefully considered. Once comfortably seated, I was whisked away on a culinary adventure that began with a perfect and deliciously soft soufflé, which proved meltingly smooth and was accompanied by a luxurious Isle of Mull Cheddar sauce. The recommended glass of picpoul de pinet, with its citrusy vivacity, proved the perfect partner to the starter. To follow, the sublime veal Parmigiana, comprising tender meat gently wrapped in a delicate, crisp crumb coating, was served with portions of flavoursome side vegetables that had clearly been given as much attention in preparation as the veal. Finally, the crisp layer of caramelised sugar atop my creme brulée yielded to reveal a creamy treat beneath, providing the most luxurious close to our meal.

The near endless knowledge of the friendly and professional staff proved beyond doubt that this is a quality establishment - one that I will be visiting far more frequently.
