My wife & I dropped into Maison Bleue on a Sunday evening on the off chance we could get a table, which we did. The gentleman who looked after us was very attentive without being overbearing & gave us some good recommendations. Our food was superb from the starters through to desserts. I had scallops to start which were accompanied... More

We stumbled across this Restaurant when in Edinburgh for one night. We hadn't booked but they found a table for us in 45 minutes giving just enough time for pre dinner drinks across the street. Food was all very good and tasty, service was excellent, nice atmosphere and overall the value for money was fine for a city centre eatery.... More

Until last year I visited Edinburgh every six weeks and I make sure I get a visit to this restaurant every visit. If you have bad knees ask to be seated downstairs as the stairs are very steep. The food is divine and the pre-threate menu is superb VFM. Tasty treats, lovely wine to accompany your meals and great service.... More

We enjoyed a mid-day fixed price selection of amazing French food on a lovely street in old town. While we weren't dining under the best of circumstances, I would strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting town. Ask if they still have affordable lunch and early dinner menu

This restaurant has kerb appeal, its spread over three floors and each dining space is unfussy with a mixture of furniture, easy on the eye. The staff couldn't have been more friendly. The food was tasty ... we loved the chicken kebabs with couscous and harissa sauce. The downside are the toilets that are situated on the top floor and... More

Dined at Maison Bleue during our recent visit to Edinburgh. Arrived without a reservation on a busy Friday evening but were greeted by friendly and helpful staff with a suggestion to sit in the comfortable bar area while a table became available. Thankfully we did not have to wait to long until we were allocated a table. The menu offers... More

Went there for dinner on 27 Aug. We had the calamari (w/ special secret sauce) and haggis as starters. Very impressed with both starters especially calamari had a spicy kick (this was perfect to me but it may be spicy for those who can't handle any spicy food so it would be better to advise customer before ordering). We then... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch on 18 Aug 2014. The staff were welcoming and the general ambience was pleasing. But that is where the good news stopped. Food I ordered confit of duck (slow cooked in goose fat) on a cassoulet with lardons. The duck may have been slow cooked but not that day and possibly not the day... More
