French in Old Town
When you say French restaurants you may think expensive. That may have been the case 10 years ago, however there are now a number of very good affordable places to eat. As in all large cities you can still find the fine dining restaurants.
The best measure of the quality of French restaurants in Edinburgh is how popular they are with the local French speaking population of the city. Most of the restaurateurs go out of their way to create a bit of France in Edinburgh through the use of interior and exterior design, mirroring authentic French bistros, cafes and restaurants.
