Petit Paris – Edinburgh

Went to Edinburgh for the Tattoo and had a wonderful stay. High on my agenda was to revisit the authentic bistro in the Grassmarket area called Petit Paris. It is an unpretentious cafe style French eatery with great service and wonderful food. It was sunny and warmish so we sat outside and ordered.

Chicken or beef?

I had the ribeye steak again which seems to be my default position these days. My dining companion had the supreme of chicken. Both came with roast potatoes and seasonal veg. Both tasted great and were exactly what we were looking for, honest hearty food.

Frilly Cheese

For dessert we shared the cheeseboard which featured a frilly cheese which presumably is made by dragging a knife across the block and all three tasted great. Quick turnaround then off to the Tattoo.

Quick march!
