Make no mistake – it’s not easy for a dining spot to stay popular for over 20 years, especially in a thriving foodie hub like Edinburgh’s Old Town.
But since opening in 1998, Biblos has been bringing in the crowds.
Maybe it’s the free live music, maybe it’s the huge windows ideal for people watching, or maybe it’s just the hearty gastropub grub.
Whatever the reason, you can try out this Chambers Street institution for yourself with today’s Big Deal…
Biblos is a lively cafe bar, cocktail spot and music venue close to the Festival Theatre and Waverley station.
This Big Deal is for a two course meal for two from the special 5pm menu. Sparkle will be added to your meal with a lovely bottle of white or blush pink Prosecco to share.
The offer is valid seven days until the end of April, meaning you can make the most of it at weekends too (and hopefully enjoy a bit of live music in the process).
Here is a glance at a sample 5pm menu:
Duck & pork pate with red onion confit and warm French baguette
Haggis balls in beer batter with neeps and tatties in whisky sauce
Soup of the day with homemade brown bread and butter (V)
Classic beef, chicken or veggie burger with lettuce, tomato, red onion, chilli jam and chips
Pan-fried peppered lemon breast of chicken with broccoli and baby potatoes
Beef ravioli with tomato and basil sauce and a touch of cream
Spinach and ricotta tortellini with tomato and basil sauce and a touch of cream
Chilli veggie mix with butternut squash, beans, peppers, paprika, onions, garlic and rice (VN)
Here is a snippet from a recent rave Facebook review for Biblos:
‘My husband and I dined here yesterday. We had a three course meal which was delicious. Every course was deliciously cooked and very tasty. A great choice and everything was of ample portion size…’
Try out a true institution
Highly scoffable pub grub, live music and a fun atmosphere — Biblos has lots going for it as an Old Town dining spot.
And with this Big Deal on a two course meal for two, you can sip a lovely bottle of Prosecco as well.
Your only dilemma will be deciding whether to opt for the white or the rose fizz…
