Life just looks better after a good meal. Love is lovelier, sunsets are rosier and beds are, well, that much cosier.
And of course, the French understand this better than just about anyone. That is why, every so often, it’s nice to enjoy a proper French bistro dining experience.
Soak up the Gallic vibe with today’s Big Deal on a meal at Le Bistrot in Old Town, which includes the option of a glass of Champagne each (of course).
Authentic French dining
Opened by the same team behind the renowned Patisserie Maxime, Le Bistrot offers homely French cooking on Parliament Square.
Depending on how much of the menu you want to sample, this Big Deal has a range of dining options and is suitable for two.
You can enjoy it Sunday to Thursday from noon to 10pm, and Friday from noon to 5pm, until the end of April.
These TripAdvisor reviewers enjoyed their visit to Le Bistrot in Edinburgh:
‘Delicious French Cuisine. My partner and I enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Bistrot; the food being well seasoned and typically French. There was a good selection of wine and we were spoilt for choice as regards the desserts. The service was efficient and the ambience convivial. It was also a great opportunity to practice one’s French though the staff were fluent in English should the need arise. Très bon. Merci à tous.’
‘Yum. A tasty wee find with quality food and good service. Worth booking as popular with the locals as reasonably priced too.’
‘No frills, excellent food, would highly recommend. Scallops and leek followed by a steak, proper food.’
There is a sea of global foods to choose from these days but sometimes, when dining out, nothing but French will do.
You can enjoy up to two courses with this Big Deal and the option of that glass of Champagne should do nicely.
Might we suggest that you go the whole hog with three and enjoy one of those tasty patisserie cakes for dessert?
