About MP's Bistro

MP’s Bistro, the restaurant of the Parliament House Hotel, is a contemporary Edinburgh dining spot with a long history. The amalgamation of Jacobean and Georgian properties, the hotel is packed with Scottish charm, close to the many sights of Edinburgh but peacefully located down a narrow cobbled lane, away from the noise and crowds, making MP’s Bistro an ideal place in which to relax and unwind. MP’s head chef combines traditional Scottish flavours with classic cookery and local ingredients to offer an imaginative menu accompanied by a vast range of wines and, of course, whiskys. MP’s Bistro is known for its breakfast too, the ideal start to a day meandering through the streets of atmospheric Edinburgh.

It said dinner deal, but they were offering the same price on menu anyway so there was no saving or benefit of using this website.

Tourist hub, very pricey and the service was not comparable. Had a feeling of a diner rather than a bistro but lacked character.

The food was very nice but the experience was just ok. I don't think I would go back.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely pre theatre meal at MP's Bistro, Calton Hill, Edinburgh. We were served by two charming waitresses and the food was excellent. Included in the price which was £30 for two for two courses was a lovely glass of house wine. The only criticism we had was the restaurant could have been a bit warmer.

Friendly and helpful staff. Good value for money.

MP's Bistro. Night out with friends we all agreed that the food was good and the quality of the house wine was very good. Felt the ambience could be better and the smell from the kitchen was offputting. Good deal but don't think I would choose to return as there are so many other good places to eat in Edinburgh.

The fixed price early evening menu was very good value for money at MPs Bistro, Edinburgh. Service was friendly and very attentive. Food was well presented and portion size was good. Worth exploring the comfortable and well ("Timorous Beasties") decorated entrance foyer of the hotel when visiting this restaurant.

The food was lovely. The waiting staff looked either like they were bone tired or just needed to learn how to smile!! All in all it's a nice location, a quaint room but not much atmosphere not helped by bolshy staff! Worth a visit if you're happy with each others company!!

MP's Bistro was great value. Food was lovely! Service was great! Nice decor with the fire burning and candles on tables, but the atmosphere was rather quiet. We did have a later reservation but it was practically empty by 10pm on a Saturday night. (The restaurant entrance is up a steep, unlikely location. It is also part of a hotel and you have to walk a fair way to go to the hotel toilets.) All in all would highly recommend as food was very nice. Thanks

We (7 of us) had the 3 course offer with a glass of wine last Sat 07/04/12 and were pleasantly surprised by the comfort, quality of food and the service at this restaurant which we visited for the first time. Excellent value for money and we will certainly be back in the future.

MPs Bistro in Edinburgh is very central, within a small hotel, which has lots of traditional character. Parking available right outside the door on a Friday evening is a bonus. Pleasant cosy atmosphere in the restaurant - even though it was busy (residents also dining) we felt quite private at our table. Waitresses polite and attentive. Food well-presented, pretty good, though soup too salty - unusual these days. Complimentary glass of wine made it good value.

MPs Bistro Edinburgh Very good value 2 courses and glass of wine £15. The service and the waitresses were excellent.We opted to have a main and a dessert and we not disappointed.The food was hot and nicely presented.

amazing food, lovely staff and a great place in general! only wish I could have finished all my food, portions were HUGE! :-D

Excellent meal & superb value. Would certainly return to this restaurant. Had never heard of the MP's Bistro & would not have found it without Top table as Edinburgh has so many to choose from.

Parliament House Hotel, Edinburgh

This was a good value emal and the quality of food was good, though they do charge for extras despite having 2 course offer eg side dishes. On the downside we were the only ones in the restaurant and the decor clashed quite badly eg mix of Scottish and Mediterean with music not to our taste.

Good food, good service excellent.

At the back of an empty hotel with no other customers did not make for the most attractive of settings, if you are trying to get away from thoughts of the recession this is not the place to come, service was prompt due to the lack of other customers, food was all too salty but was washed down with the free glass of wine on offer, toilets are back at reception which is pretty far away but they were nice and clean. Overall fairly disappointing.

I like this location - MP's Bistro nearby the St James Centre in Edinburgh. I was disappointed in the haggis parcels starter which was three little half teaspoons of haggis in pastry. This was not worthy of being classed as a haggis starter. I wished I had complained but I didn't want to upset the rest of the evening.

Mp's bistro Edinburgh. Excellent food. Great service.

MPs Bistro, Parliament House Hotel - booked the buffet meal on Hogmany - lovely start to the evening - typical Scottish hotel. Had a pre dinner drink in the reception area in front of a lovely fire - turned out to be a gas one but was set in the original tiled fireplace. Staff were very friendly and attentive but didnt push the drinks menu onto you. Smoked salmon and prawn mousse with cucumber salsa very tasty. Plenty of food from the buffet - beef was very tender and roast potatoes superb.

Very nice. Good value, nice sized portion with a free glass of wine!

Good food, but very quiet (only 2 other dinners) at time of visit 7.30pm
