A word from Bisque Brasserie
Like all good brasseries, Bisque on Edinburgh’s Bruntsfield Place opens all day, every day for quality drinks, snacks and meals. The airy, very trendy space is filled with unlaid wood-topped tables and an outside terraced garden that is heated and well sheltered and is a sun trap, that the mix of young professionals and students can drink and eat at, or just the former, without fuss. The Bisque day starts at 7am with an all-day menu of traditional dishes made with local and fair-trade as much as possible… Ayrshire bacon, Scottish smoked salmon, lamb, cheeses and, of course, prime Aberdeen Angus steaks. Come Winter, light dishes like mixed bean, lentil & tomato bouillon with chicken & chorizo and our Fish pie fly out of the kitchen.

Diner Reviews
  • "Fantastic restaurant, wasn't expecting it to be so good. Staff very friendly and extremely helpful, took time to make sure everything was ok. Explained the different types of whiskey on offer, 60+ malts to choose from! Would definitely return."

  • "When I booked, I hadn't realised this is connected to a best western hotel, and probably would not have booked if I had. However, we were pleasantly surprised when we entered as it is really lovely! The staff were excellent and there was a good choice of food on the Toptable offer . The food was a bit on the salty side and not as flavoursome as truly French food. Parking was easy at meters outside. Would go again!"

  • "when i read previous reviews there were many mentions of poor service: they have clearly acted on this and I must say that the service was very attentive and professional - food was flavoursome and portions generous. Would definitley go back - well done team BB"

  • "Restaurant was part of Best Western Hotel. Average indoor area with nice outdoor garden setting. We had a toptable special 2 course meal (dinner) for 14 pounds. Not much choice for entree and mains. Overall food was decent and reasonable for the price. I realised we should have chosen and paid the normal price from the A la Carte menu, which looked more interesting. Service was attentive. Ambience was spoilt by a family dining nearby where the kid was allowed to yell and talk loudly without any staff or the family members intervening. I would recommend only the A la Carte menu. We had excellent dinners at Cafe Grande, and the Gurkha Restaurant nearby on the other nights."

  • "My husband and I went to Bisque for our dinner last Sunday. We both had the spicy lentil soup to start, and he had the Sunday roast and I had the tagliatelle with mushrooms and pine nuts. We both thought the food was fabulous and great value."

  • "As the title says, sounded like a small restaurant, should have looked up the web and checked so my fault, good was great,staff friendly and reasonable price,but unfortunately we just walked out of our hotel and walked to another hotel for breakfast,a bit of a disappointment."

  • "We nooked through toptable for the 2 courses and a glass of wine for £16.95 but got a 2 courses for £13.95 deal. Although it wasn't much more to order the wine it still worked out more expensive than we had expected. The manager obviously knew about the differece but didn't seem to care. The food was average quality, I had the vegetable stack with a supposedly spicy, but actually pretty bland tomato sauce. We found the manager to be pretty stand off ish however the other staff were nice. Overall we were disappointed with our meal."
