Tucked away in Edinburgh's Old Town is Hotel du Vin and its gloriously French bistro.
We were invited to come along and try their new Autumn/Winter menu and enjoy a taste of the season.
Here are our six top picks from the new menu (and get the great value 5pm offer below).
1. Duck rillettes
This pate offers a twist on the traditional pork rillettes using duck instead.
Served on a toasted sourdough baguette with a carrot râpées salad, it offers a tempting starter.
2. Salt cod croquettes & romesco sauce
A popular starter from the menu, the crispy potato and salt cod croquettes come with a tangy red pepper and tomato sauce - perfect for dipping them into.
3. Coq au vin
You don't get a more classic French dish than coq au vin and it's the ideal dish for Autumn and Winter dining.
Hotel du Vin's coq au vin uses Normandy chicken which is braised in red wine and served with a pommes purée, baby onions, mushrooms and chunky pancetta.
4. Hake mitonnée
We opted for a fish option for our second main. The French influence was on show, the roasted hake was served on a crispy crouton with an aromatic broth.
5. Rum & raisin crème caramel
This classic dessert of set custard comes with a rum and raisin caramel to offer a perfect final French flourish to the menu.
6. Poire Belle Hélène
The dessert menu also offers the simple but delicious combination of poached pear with vanilla ice cream and warm chocolate sauce. An indulgent finish.
