Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the 2015 edition.

With 29 years of history in Edinburgh, Pierre Victoire has experienced both highs and lows to triumph as a local favourite. Set at the north end of the New Town and next to Canonmills, the bistro is slightly secluded but this adds somewhat to its charm. A quiet street offers a contrasting backdrop to this lively spot that ticks all the boxes when it comes to bistro dining: daily specials scrawled on blackboards, bentwood chairs, checked tablecloths and of course classic French dishes. Diners should expect a selection of reasonably priced steaks, seafood, cassoulets and an ever-changing specials board which means that no two visits to the bistro will be the same. The extensive menu is accompanied by an equally impressive wine list with plenty of house specials to order by the glass, half-litre carafe or full bottle. To further tempt diners, they offer set-price monthly buffet nights and an incredibly reasonable lunch menu. [Not recently visited.]

Chez Pierre

5 Jun 2008

Sometimes we get a bit too serious about food. But then it is a serious business, it’s what keeps us upright, but like any realm of human interest some folk, among them food journalists and chefs, become just a bit too earnest about the whole subject.
