Petit Paris, 38-40 Grassmarket, EH1 2JU, Edinburgh

Came here for the lunch special on a busy Saturday. Were pleased when they found us a table downstairs. It was bitterly cold that day so I was very happy to be seated in the warmth.

The lunch deal is outstanding. You can choose starter and main and coffee or just main and coffee. We had a lot of shopping to get through so with the thoughts of trying on a lot of dresses in the near future opted for the main and coffee. We didnt skip the apertifs though!

My friend had the beef bourguignon which was served at the table from a mini cast iron dutch oven which was a nice touch. Also being served out of these cute rustic dishes was the roast chicken. Not normally a fan of chicken when I go out, the next time i visit i will definitely be tempted! It looked delicious. I went for the fish of the day which was coley, pan fried on top of mashed potatoes. It had a nice creamy sauce, exactly what you want when you are dining French, which was spiked with fresh dill and other herbs. It was served with nicely steamed veg which went lovely with the sauce. Ah, before our mains arrived we also were served some peanuts and bread and butter, but this might have been an accompaniment to our pre-lunch drinks.

I will definitely be returning to this place. The staff are lovely as well and the service good. A great deal for lunch as well.

4.5 from Meng (69%) on August 5th, 2007 (11 years ago)

A city centre location, with a decent price (if you go during the pre-theatre hours where you a main + coffee deal) or reasonable price outwith the 'discount' hours even.

It's one of my favourite restaurants, and I've practically tried everything on the menu. The fish is superb, and I'm not much of a pisceterian, and the lamb dishes are always cooked to perfection.

Presentation is superb, for the price it's practically a bargain (see if you're willing to pay the same price for the touristy garbage all the other places in the Grassmarket and 'steakhouses' tend to serve), and it comes highly, highly recommended by yours truly. See you there.

3.5 from irishphat (61%) on May 6th, 2008 (10 years ago)

Petit Paris, 38-40 Grassmarket, EH1 2JU, Edinburgh

Went here for a family meal on Sunday. Was ushered downstairs by the french speaking staff. Very friendly I found. We had booked so there was no waiting.

Service was quite quick but there were no beers on the menu and thankfully I spotted a chap with a Kronenburg. We had 5 different starters.

Mussels - tasty

Rabbit Terrine - awful

Black Pudding - good

Escargot - very garlicy - not much snail to taste - nice though if you like garlic

Brie in filo pastry - very nice

Needless to say we all tried all of these.

When it came to mains though there was less to choose from that looked good. I nearly had the bouilliabase and chickened out for the steak as did 2 of my fellow diners. One had Monkfish, which was fine (comes with mussels - not mentioned on menu) and the final person had lamb. The mains were ok but the starters were much more enjoyable. The veg was universally approved of.

My steak was quite fatty - more rump than sirloin to be honest.

The desserts were quite varied, we had one person on cheeseboard (not great) creme brulee (very nice) choc tart x2 (good) and crepes - very nice.

All in all it was mostly very nice. Our experience was tainted by screaming 2 years olds 5 feet away (2 of them) and this was at 8.30 - 10 pm on a Sunday.

I'm sure many people love it, personally I found the mains to be mediocre. With great starters and deserts it may not be enough to get me to go back.

The bill was about £160.

My favourite restaurant in Edinburgh. Unpretentious French restaurant with friendly french waiters and delicious food. The pre-theatre menu is a great deal!
