Further Information

Since it was established in 1998, Biblos has become a fixture in Edinburgh’s drinking and dining scene, conveniently located on Chambers Street in the Old Town. By day, Biblos provides a cosy location for breakfast or lunch, with floor-to-ceiling windows making it the perfect place for some Old Town people watching whilst sipping some coffee or wine. Or, if you’re hungry, go proper Edinburgh with Biblos breakfast (bacon, sausage, fried egg, haggis, mushrooms, tomato, potato scone and beans) or tuck into a panini, salad or pasta at lunchtime.

By night, Biblos becomes one of the city’s hottest destinations for dinner, drinks and live music. On the menu you’ll find a range of international cuisine, steaks and grills, with something to suit everyone. We recommend beginning with the haggis balls, served with neeps and tatties and a whisky sauce, or the flamed chorizo, followed by some beer-battered fish and chips, peppered lemon chicken or the aubergine filled with ratatouille and couscous. With its location just across from the Old College and only a short walk from the Royal Mile, a trip to Biblos is the perfect way to round off a day sightseeing or shopping in the Scottish capital, as well as being a favourite among locals. Whether its for a business lunch, a family meal or to enjoy some live music, Biblos is a popular choice. Beat the crowds and book ahead!

This was my second visit here and certainly won't be my last. Booked a table for 11 people, received fast friendly service and great food. Staff were more than happy to accommodate our unusual orders. Very reasonably priced food with 25% off. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent service and delicious food. Table was reserved and ready waiting for us. 25% discount off food and good prices on wine made this a very inexpensive night out. Both servers were friendly and attentive - can't wait to return.

Very nice meal, great service. staff very friendly and attentive. We were having a quick meal before the theatre and biblos was nearby. I gave a 5 for overall experience rather than a 6 which I almost did, as the children's menu is slightly limited with no dessert option for younger diners and the coffee is a bit on the weak side, Overall it was a very pleasant experience and I would return next time I am in the area.

very positive experience , staff attentive to needs , pleasant mannerly , food fine , I had battered fish bit greasy for me ( personal taste ) partner had burger which was enjoyed , I had vanilla ice cream lovely ice cream felt the presentation could have been better ,e.g a piece of mint on top ( just for presentation would have made all the difference .

Very much enjoyed the experience. Because our table was very close to the door and the weather was very cold it was a little drafty. Will probably ask for an inside or upstairs table next time. Regardless of this minor inconvenience will definitely return.

Been here before and find it a handy pre-theatre eating venue. Great service from helpful and polite staff. Good value for money - chilli beef nachos very tasty. Would recommend highly.
