Rather like Edith Piaf, the 5pm Dining blog ne regrette rien. Except perhaps that large wedge of Camembert we rather unwisely demolished just before bedtime last night.

We’re certain that you won’t regret anything if you sashay along to Le Bistro Beaumartin on Saturday 26th April.

On that evening, the marvelous Christine Bovill (that’s her in the YouTubeclip) will be performing her acclaimed Piaf show at the Hope Street restaurant.

Guests will enjoy a welcome drink, three course a la carte dinner and two forty minute performances from La Bovill.

Troubled chanteuse

Packed with memorable songs made famous by the troubled chanteuse, Bovill’s Piaf show has been a huge hit at the Edinburgh Fringe for the last three years.

The Scotsman has given the show five stars while the Sunday Times noted that the show was ‘something that will stay with you for the rest of your life’.

Authentic Gallic cooking

Le Bistro Beaumartin has also had its fair share of plaudits.

The List’s Eating and Drinking Guide reckoned that ‘Le Bistro Beaumartin is an independent with real strength of personality that prides itself on marrying the spoils of Scotland’s natural larder to authentic Gallic cooking techniques’.

5pm customers have given the restaurant a healthy rating of 4.1/5.

The evening starts at 6.30pm and tickets for dinner and the show cost £50 a head. You can book here.
