I write this review as it is happening. Currently on a business trip to Edinburgh. The restuarant is intriguing as you walk past largely due to its unique seating and decor which is really appealing. Bit tucked away from the hustle and bustle and found as you walk up towards the Royal mile from the Grassmarket. I have ordered a... More

Had the prix fixe menu (and kicked ourselves for not coming during the "pre theater" hour when it is nearly half-off) and everything was delicious. Husband had the calamari and it was so incredibly good, I had the spinach and asparagus tart and it was out of this world. Really enjoyed our meal. Servers were pleasant and attentive.

A fantastic weekend up in Edinburgh which was rounded off perfectly by a tasty meal in a lovely restaurant. Attentive staff and great service. Fully recommend the calamari!

Factors we considered were proximity to the wedding venue, the surroundings, cost, ambience and -not least- the quality of food and service. Maison Bleue excelled on all fronts. Located in pretty Victoria Street, the building... More

We booked in advance on a fairly busy Friday evening and the restaurant was quite full when we arrived, we were seated at a table at the top of the stairs which was constantly being passed by waiters and customers. The table beside us in the window was empty and when a table in the neighbouring room became available I... More
