About Hotel du Vin & Bistro - Edinburgh

Nestled deep in Edinburgh’s Old Town, a short walk from the historic Royal Mile, is Hotel du Vin and Bistro. Renowned for its class and style, Hotel du Vin’s makeover of this former asylum could be considered the jewel in the company’s already glittering crown. A boutique hotel of the highest standard, Hotel du Vin boasts a decadent bar with eclectic wine list and a unique bistro restaurant. With original oak floors and luxuriant furnishings, the bistro is full of character and charm, a lavish choice for choosy diners. The menu features classic European dishes, we love the; Isle of Mull soufflé, the beef and snail pie and think you would have to be mad to miss the profiteroles.

I had both afternoon tea and dinner here within a week. Both were excellent value, but dinner in particular was a revelation - an innovative and interesting matching of ingredients, and a take on some classic dishes that proved to be as delicious as they promised... My navarin of mutton was both traditional and delicious. The service was provided by an excellent young and very helpful and knowledgeable team. They offered a warm welcome too. And the wine list... Extensive, thoughtful and with a good range of wines by the glass. Our Chateau Musar 1999 was presented in superb condition, and was good value at £70... Well, it was a celebration dinner, so why not. They have excellent wines for far less too. We loved the room, the food, the whole experience. A really good find in a City with many great restaurants. Looking forward to my next visit.

I've never ticked as many "what do you recommend this restaurant for" boxes!
We dined at Hotel du Vin for Mother's Day, with the four-course brunch menu. The menu itself was good. There was an initial soup course (a well-presented, creamy potato & bacon soup) and plenty of choice for mains, including "pie of the day" and "catch of the day" - the latter of which I had, a truly colossal piece of freshly grilled tuna. Plenty choice for dessert too. But the main attraction was the "market table" starter - a buffet piled high with freshly dressed crab, lobster, oysters, charcuterie (including iberian pork on-the-leg), stuffed veg, you name it. Fantastic and great to try such a variety of dishes. Oh and a great wine list!

This was our second visit in a weekend to Edinburgh as we loved it so much the first night we thought we would visit again with our friends. They enjoyed it just as much and commented on the lovely decor which was warm and inviting even on a cold winter evening. The menu had changed and so we were able to chose different dishes which were just as good as the first evening and such good value too. The staff remembered us and were just as attentive.

Nine of us attended Hotel Du Vin for our Christmas Night Out and we were in the Bedlam Room (private dining) and it was great. The meal, the wine, the service and the setting was excellent. Would recommend this for a special occasion or family gathering.

I took my husband for a meal for his birthday on Saturday 8th December. We were both delighted with the whole experience. The food was excellent with a lovely menu choice, the staff were friendly and helpful, the restaurant was busy and created a wonderful atmosphere. It was good value for money and the building itself is a fantastic mixture of old stone architecture and modern clean lines. Absolutely great place. Definitely will recommend.

I've been to Hotel du Vin Bistro twice in the past year, and each time the food has been brilliant. The wine and service are equally excellent. The first time I went I remember a towering cheese souflee starter that was great fun to behold (though slightly less fun to eat) and my partner had a surf and turf main of scallops and a steak... the memory of which I am still drooling over many months down the line.

The someiller paired our meal with a fantastic bottle of wine at our request, and our waiter took excellent care of us (he let us know that it's ok to have the deep-fried mars bar, since they sprinkle cinnamon sugar over it to keep it classy).

My second visit was brunch - also excellent service, food and ambience. I shall visit again

We loved Hotel du Vin & Bistro for a good lunch out when the in-laws were coming to visit. With the 50% off voucher, the value for money is amazing, considering that this is top class food, in the romantic setting of an old-style French restaurant.

Approached with some trepidation as had booked without prior knowledge. The whole experience was fantastic from pre dinner drinks through to paying the bill. Nothing was to much for the superb staff. The food was wonderful and perfectly cooked.Will definitely be going back again as soon as i can book a table.

Been back a few times and tried the new menu which has good variety. They have a special vegetarian menu which is great with 4 choices for each course and suited my partner.
Service informative and friendly. Great atmosphere and lovely whisky lounge to have coffee after dinner.
Booked to go back already!

Lunch at Hotel du Vin, Edinburgh most enjoyable. Food superb, and interaction with Sommelier most informative. However, they did overlook in the bill the fact that I had booked with toptable, thereby omitting reduction and had to be reminded, Nevertheless, that does not detract from the food experience.

This was our second visit to Hotel du Vin & Bistro in Edinburgh, and it was just as good as our first. We both had the onglet steak, which was tender and full of flavour. The only (very small) problem with it was that it started getting cold while we were eating it - it might be good if they heated the plates a bit more to try and stop that happening. The home made chocolate ice cream was also one of the best I have tried. The service was attentive and friendly.

My meal at Hotel du Vin and Bistro in Edinburgh was enjoyable, but not incredible. The service staff were very helpful and attentive and the menu was interesting and varied with generous portion sizes. The only quibble was a minor one: my partner ordered a medium rare steak, which was served medium. However the atmosphere and the food were both pleasant and I would recommend it.

Hotel du Vin, Edinburgh. Very good experience indeed. Initially quite quiet but filled up as the evening went on. The decor and candlelight gives it an excellent atmosphere but with tables sufficiently spread out for privacy. The food was excellent - and eggs benedict for an evening starter was an inspired idea!

We dined in the Bistro at Hotel du Vin and took advantage of the excellent 50% discount on the lunch. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. We ordered the cheese souffle and were staggered at the size - it was huge! Served with it's own little pot of cheese sauce on the side, even with a 15 min wait, it was well worth it.
The service was excellent ( thank you Jason) and all the staff were helpful and very professional. I can highly recommend this restaurant and we will be back!
