The Auld Alliance

Scotland and France are ancient allies through culture, history and royalty. Francophile foodies will delight in the news that there are four additional French restaurants in Edinburgh for more opportunity to indulge in classic moules frites, le soufflé de rocquefort, le poussin Breton and fromage. A second Chez Jules has opened on Cockburn Street, and La Garrigue (Good Food Guide, Scottish Restaurant of the Year 2010), has a sister Bistro on Eyre Place featuring their signature Languedoc cuisine. Visit the brand new Café Marlayne on Antigua Street, just opposite the Playhouse, and the charming L’Escargot Blanc offers an authentic taste of Paris in Fred’s bistro on Queensferry Street.
