This has got to be one of the prettiest streets in Edinburgh and this restaurant has been a great find. Went here for lunch with 2 friends Living in Aberdeen we could not believe the prices £9.95 for 2 courses we would pay that for just a starter back home. The food and the atmosphere was great; cosy and relaxing.... More

We accidentally bumped into this restaurant, it looked quite inviting with blue exterior. Menu also looked good. When we went in the waitress friendly welcomed us and escorted us to our table. We were unfortunate to not have frogs legs as appetizer because they didn't have any but waitress helped us to choose something else. The place was classically decorated... More

Had a work night out tonight and went to this fabulous restaurant on Victoria St. The menu really has something for everyone. The staff could not have been nicer, helpful or more professional. Then came the food. To say it was cooked to perfection ( I had aubergine and goats cheese starter followed by a rib eye) would be to... More

Recently visited for the first time with a group of friends. We were given a really friendly welcome from the staff, and the service was great throughout the evening. The menu was to everyone's fancy and we all agreed on the haggis balls as the standout. I've lived in Edinburgh for year's and didn't know it existed as I am... More

No trip to edinburgh is complete without an afternoon spent on Victoria street. From tweed shops, book shops and an authentic whisky bar it has it all and Maison Bleu is hands down the best place to eat on the street. Tucked away behind the steamed up doors you'll find a bounty of delicious fodder fusing Scottish dishes with French... More

We visited the restaurant one Saturday afternoon. It is located on Victoria Street between Grassmarket and the Royal Mile. We just had one course each and we all enjoyed our choices. I had the steamed mussels a la Bretonne, which were very good. Others in the party had grilled belly of pork and spinach and goats cheese tourte which they... More

Maison Bleue is a fabulous restaurant in Edinburgh's old town and one I frequent often as the food, wine and staff are outstanding. Some dishes you must try are the "surprise" calamari, haggis balls, lamb tagine and Merguez brochettes (if you like spicy sausage!). The French, Scottish and Algerian influence in the food is outstanding. I would highly recommend a... More

The food was delicious. My husband stuck with appetizers for his entree. He loves many choices. I had the fish and seafood gumbo. They took us without a reservation and we only waited about 15 minutes. The ambiance was very romantic and perfect for what we were looking for that evening.

My fiancé and I were married last week and we had our reception dinner at Maison Bleue. The service was fantastic, the food was excellent, and we were completely satisfied with our evening out.
