The Bia Bistrot is a few minutes walk from our Edinburgh flat and I’ve written about it before in this post. We went again in early August with friends who were visiting from Northern England and the visit confirmed my opinions that you eat better in Scotland than France. I had a very French meal – Pork rilletes, cured cheeks and crackling to start followed by confit of duck with beans and tomatoes. I’ve had confit a couple of times in France and this was by far the best of them. Others in the party had coley – a sustainable fish – and were equally happy.
For 4 of us, the bill which included a bottle of white and glasses of red wine came to £25 each. It was an excellent meal for the price.
