French classics with a creative Gaelic spin in a cosy bistro atmosphere.
Bia bistrot is a couple run restaurant, Roisin & Matthias Llorente are the chefs behind the stove, where they guarantee to be as true as possible to their ethos : fresh-seasonal-local-sustainable-homemade.
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.
bia is 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.
