Le Bistrot occupies a central location in Edinburgh’s Old Town. Surrounded by beautiful historic buildings, this sophisticated yet relaxed French restaurant sits at the heart of the famous Royal Mile and can be found adjacent to St Giles’ Cathedral. Open all day, it’s the perfect place to pause during a day of sightseeing and a great choice for a simple, delicious breakfast.

The interior of Le Bistro is unpretentious and inviting. Exposed brick walls, industrial-style lighting and wooden panelling create a cosy and homely feel, and all around the restaurant you can spot well-stocked shelves of freshly baked bread and authentic French wine. On select evenings, diners can even enjoy live music with their food and the highly popular wine-tasting dinners are an excellent opportunity to sample some of the finest bottles that France’s wineries have to offer.

If you’re stopping by in the morning, why not begin your day with a freshly made omelette, or a sumptuous dish of smoked salmon and scrambled eggs? Alternatively, opt for a warm croissant and a creamy café au lait. Le Bistrot’s outstanding service ensures that everyone feels welcome – if you have any dietary requirements don’t hesitate to inform your friendly server.

With their focus firmly set on high-quality authentic French dining, the chefs at Le Bistro have put together several mouth-watering menus that offer something for every palate. At lunchtime, diners can enjoy two courses for just £12.95 or three courses for £15.95. Start with some classic moules marinières followed by a traditional Provençal braised beef stew, or choose the salad Caprese before indulging in a warm and hearty chicken stew with a touch of spicy Esplette pepper. To finish, you can’t wrong with a cheeseboard or, if you prefer something sweet, sample the homemade tarte aux abricots.

The dinner menu is just as impressive, showcasing starters such as pan-fried scallops cooked in Thermidor sauce and mains such as entrecôte de boeuf, and roasted cod served with lentils and paprika sauce. The seasonal vegetable risotto is the perfect veggie plate. To accompany your food, Le Bistrot provides an extensive wine list as well as an array of cocktails – allow yourself to be tempted by a Cosmopolitan, or opt for a sweet French Martini.
