Bia Bistrot

19 Colinton Road, EDINBURGH, EH10 5DP

1 rosettes

The 'Bia' element of the name is the Gaelic for food, the 'Bistrot' part more self-evident, and it's the winning setting for the cooking of husband-and-wife team Roisin and Matthias Llorente. Their Irish/Scottish and French/Spanish backgrounds are apparent in well-crafted and satisfying food in a charming and easy-going environment with wooden tables and smart leather seats. Things get off to a flying start with smoked pork belly and celeriac and apple remoulade, then mains bring hake fillet with smoked haddock velouté, spinach and potato. Finish with chocolate and polenta cake with orange and cardamom cream. There's a good value set lunch and early evening menu, too.
