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.
Excellent meal in a relaxing atmosphere.. Would highly recommend Thank you Biabistrot
Great food and service ,well done !!
Great service and super tasty food. We'll definitely be back.
Good food in a nice cosy restaurant. Waiter was perhaps a little too attentive!
Great food, service and atmosphere.
As always great food and service. Fiona always makes us feel very welcome and is great fun. Look forward to seeing you again soon. All the best. Graham
Exceptionally good food and wine with friendly and efficient service. Such good value for lunch - will return again soon!
Excellent lunch as usual. Food was delicious and service top notch. The staff are just fabulous and pay attention to detail. The Irish waitress deserves a special shout out (sadly didn't catch her name). She was so efficient and really looked after us well paying particular attention to my 2 year old daughter who just loved her. Dining with a toddler can often be a stressful time but needn't have worried. We are devout Bia Bistrot fans and will continue to pass on the good word to our friends and family. You guys are smashing it!! Thanks.
Always outstanding; bia Bistrot never disapoints
This was our 3rd visit - it won't be the last!
We enjoyed the food and it was good value for money. We came in early evening and, although the restaurant wasn't busy, we felt quite cramped and close to the next table.
We have been a few times to this lovely place - and we will certainly be back again as we all think it one of the nicest places to eat in Edinburgh.
Interesting and very well cooked dishes. The serving staff were excellent and made us feel very welcome. We will definitely be back.
Excellent food with great gluten free options. Friendly, efficient service.
Fabulous food and cracking service. Ensured I ate well despite many allergies. Will definitely return.
The restaurant was quite busty but not full but I would imagine that once full the 4 star score I give would increase to 5
Most enjoyable evening. Excellent service and excellent food. We will return with more friends to sample the delights. Thank you.
Our visit to Bia Bistrot was an absolutely delightful experience. The ambiance was wonderful, the servers were incredibly helpful both as far as food service and in giving us advice for places to visit during our time in Edinburgh. And of course, the food was exquisite. My only comment would be that for the bone marrow starter, you should include 2 slices of toast per bone, and just a little more of that delicious onion reduction. We had to ask our server for more toast just so we could prolong those wonderful flavors.
It was a fantastic meal. Our first time visiting and we can't wait to come back. The service and staff were beyond great and really made us welcome. The food was so delicious. I will be recommending to everyone! Super and 5 star all the way. Thank you!
Had a beautiful meal. Excellent quality for a very reasonable price. Can’t recommend it enough.
Always a superb meal. On this occasion there were four of us and every plat was delicious. But I thought my quail was best of all. IDC
The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, the food was brought out quickly and was delicious. The general atmosphere of the restaurant is lovely and we will definitely be back to visit.
Excellent as always
Set lunch menu main choices, haggis or fishcakes - both ok offerings enjoyed this visit, BUT a little unimaginative to offer both on the same day.
