Reviewed 21 November 2012

I stay in Stockbridge when I visit Edinburgh, & love to visit the local pubs & restaurants. I recently walked down the street to one of my favourites, Avoca, to find it has been rejuvenated & is now Bon Vivant. Oh my goodness, what a good surprise. Bon Vivant is fabulous. The server was lovely, the owner was 'in residence' & checking that everything was going well, & the total atmosphere was friendly and concerned with giving everyone a pleasant experience. My wine was perfect. I was disappointed with the starter of bread with oil but the salmon main was superb. Frankly, it was better than the salmon I had earlier in the week at a very posh place in the city center. Desserts were offered at 'bite size' or regular, which I always appreciate. I almost returned tonight & will definitely go back before I leave the city. Oh - I must mention that they not only welcomed me, an old lady on her own, but my wee dog was able to go out with me & enjoy the whole experience!
