About bia bistrot
bia bistrot is a couple run restaurant, Roisin & Matthias Llorente are the chefs behind the stove, where we guarantee you to be as true as possible to our ethos : fresh-seasonal-local-sustainable-homemade.

bia is Irish Gaelic for food, bistrot is the French way of spelling bistro. It sums up what we want to provide our customers: bistro atmosphere and good food.
Great service and recommendations. Staff excellent
Bia Bistro more than met our expectations with its highly interesting menu using fresh exciting ingredients - cooked to perfection and well presented. Service was thoughtful (providing extra sauce without being requested). We would definitely go again.
Attention to detail and love of providing a great dining experience that people will tell friends and family about
Now in its eighth year and this gem of a bistro never fails to deliver on high standards,such a lovely relaxed dining experience bolstered by very fine cooking and wonderful service.
Another very pleasant evening spent in your restaurant and again made to feel very welcome. Our 'first time' guest was very impressed as well.
Excellent meal as ever. We are so glad to have you close by.
Lovely meal, which was both tasty and good value. We oredered from both the set menu and al a Carte menu and the food and quality was the same in both. Would recommend this to friends and family as it rare to get a 3 course meal with a bottle of wine for under £70 anywhere in Edinburgh. Relaxed environment with attentive and pleasant staff, we will definitely be back.
Had many meals here for all different occasions and never disappointed.Great service, excellent food.
Been a few times over the last few years, the food is always excellent and the service efficient and super friendly. The lunch deal is great value for money for top quality food and the oatcakes are the best in town!
This was a wonderful meal. The food and drink was delicious, the service second to none. The restaurant was exceptionally accommodating, despite our very late arrival. I will be back - what a gem of a restaurant
Great meal as always and the staff always so attentive. Thank you for a lovely meal
Had yet another lovely meal here at our favourite restaurant, with a wonderful combination of tastes and flavours.
All good - had a lovely meal and catch up with old friends
Excellent quality food and amazing service. Couldn't recommend it highly enough!
Although we are not regular customers it is always an absolute pleasure to dine at Bia Bistrot. The food and service were excellent. A very enjoyable evening.
We enjoyed every meal. The cheeses were slightly disappointing. It was a very thin wedge of each. Two of the cheeses had thick 'crusts' which meant there was very little cheese. I am assuming the cheeses are very expensive. We would not choose the cheese board, next time, but really enjoyed everything else. The staff were more than helpful and made it a relaxed atmosphere. The flavours and portions of the other courses were great.
Delicious food, extremely good value and very friendly staff. What’s not to like?
I thought the all-female party with whom we shared the basement was very noisy, but our female assured me that it was no worse than normal for ladies who lunch!!!
Always a delicious meal at our favorite Edinburgh restaurant. Food and service top quality and tremendous value for money. :)
First time for lunch at Bia Bistrot. Well priced for excellent food and service. Would recommend and visit again.
As usual, out visit to BB did not disappoint...and our 'first visit' guests enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Opted for the set lunch menu which provided more than satisfactory choices. All topped by pleasant and not too attentive service.
We were celebrating my husband's birthday and had a really relaxing evening with fantastic food, drink and service. Excellent value for money.
Really enjoyed the tasty food (all 3 courses!), the real beer and the relaxed atmosphere. Only thing I would improve would be the tea selection;preferably loose leaf. There are several tea merchants in Edinburgh who offer a good choice.
Early evening dinner, food lovely and great value.
Excellent evening in a fantastic neighbourhood restaurant. Great service and food was superb - baked ricotta and steak were both excellent, as were desserts. Will be back
