bistrot is a couple run restaurant, Roisin
& Matthias Llorente are the chefs behind the stove, where they
guarantee you to be as true as possible to our ethos :
Roisin is Irish with Scottish parents, Matthias
is French with Spanish heritage.
After meeting in Edinburgh in 2000 and then cooking their way around
the world (Switzerland, Singapore, New York...), they choose Edinburgh
to open their own restaurant.
Irish Gaelic for food, bistrot
is the French way of spelling bistro. It sums up what we want to
provide our customers: good food in a bistro atmosphere.
