2 course Plats du Jour £9.95 - superb. I chose Moules Provencale then Salmon, both small but lovely. Great service, nice ambiance. Much better value than most restaurants in central Edinburgh. Go for lunch at least once.

It's hard to put the words to describe how delicious it was. Absolutely creative ! Wonderful dishes with brilliant ingredients put together. Amazing staff, they were really friendly and part of the lovely atmosphere. I highly recommend it if you are in the city.

It was real nice, however a little let down due to being 'misguided' as when i emailed to confirm they had a gluten free menu, they replied saying that they do have plenty options available. However, when we went this was not the case, which left my boyfriend limited with choice and an empty stomach after wards. However, from my... More

We called in for a late lunch this week, it was excellent and the staff were so professional. It was a lovely restaurant and don't be put off if you think it is busy, there is an upstairs with plenty of dining space. As one would expect in a French restaurant the wine was very good. The big surprise was... More

Went on recommendation to this place whilst on city break, good food & service even when it was very busy. The haggis ball starter absolutely delish you have to try this one. Wines were a little over priced. Definitely you need to try this restaurant.

Visited this restaurant last night to celebrate a couple of birthdays. Great atmosphere and very friendly staff. The food was excellent, and when my husband did not receive the dish he was expecting, as he misunderstood the waitress, they offered to change his meal,and took 15 % off the bill. If that isn't great customer service then I don't know... More

Looking for a restaurant serving food all day. Stumbled across this and had a late lunch. Nice and cosy on a cold Edinburgh day. Warm welcome, good food. Wine a bit pricey but good quality. I would return.

Realizing booking was essential after our first night in Edinburgh, we made a reservation at Maison Bleue for the next evening. And never regretted! The staff are charming and the food really nice - my fish of the day was awesome, and the rest of the family seemed happy with confit de canard and vensloin medallion. I don't think I've... More

Wonderful food with superb service in a most delightful environment. The service was excellent, staff were very attentive but not sitting on top of you all the time. We finished the meal with the most amazing creme brulee.
