We were welcomed by friendly staff and looked after very well. The food was excellent. Beautifully presented and very tasty. Just the right portion size and plenty of choice. The champagne was refreshing and moreish! Looking forward to going back.

this was a return jaunt from Glasgow to the Edinburgh Hotel and, as the title suggests,it is streets ahead of Glasgow's and St. Andrews ( see previous comments! nae good!)Although it seemed a lesser choice menu what was on offer should cover most tastes and was all3courses great! Didn't remember a service charge before which I don't mind as long as it doesn't go straight to turnover, but I prefer option to tip when I appreciate meal and service etc.

Cosy bistro in Edinburgh’s Old Town

The Bistro at Hotel du Vin is tucked away off a beguiling courtyard in Edinburgh’s atmospheric Old Town. It is a cosy, welcoming space with restored fireplaces, reclaimed floorboards and lots of wine merchant memorabilia.

The Bistro will appeal to anyone who likes to enjoy fine food and wine in a unique and stylish setting.

Hearty cooking with organic produce

The kitchen brigade specialise in producing the sort of hearty, delicious cooking that people want to eat. It is not fine dining or faffy but it is fresh, seasonal, locally sourced and, wherever possible, created from organic produce. The kitchen’s ingredients are as local as they can possibly get.

The Bistro offers classic British food with a twist of French cuisine and the menu changes every day depending on the produce available. Typical starters include pork rillette with cornichons and sourdough and mains like beef Bourguignon on the bone or choucroute du Vin – roasted pork belly and pancetta with smoked pork loin and bratwurst.

The food is hearty, satisfying and the wine list, as you might imagine, makes for fun reading.

Old Town location

The Bistro is part of Hotel du Van in Edinburgh’s Old Town and around a ten minute walk from Waverley train station and frequent buses pass the restaurant. There are no car parking spaces at the hotel but there is an NCP car park within walking distance.
