We have visited maison Bleue on numerous occasions and have always had a fantastic experience. The food is very good and a great selection of wines!

Went here on a works Christmas do. Food was nice but not exceptional. Drinks aplenty. Service was quite good too. Would recommend as a quiet little bistro place to go as a couple.

we came here last Sunday for the Christmas lunch. Just brilliant and great value for money.Food was to die for, especially the whiskey glazed Pigeon for starters. Our waiter was so attentive and nice and had to put up with our musings about his lovely waxed moustache . The atmosphere was just right and made our family Christmas weekend. Thank... More

Having visited Edinburgh many times, this is one of the finest places to eat, we have been 3 times now over the years with our Children (now adults themselves) and have never been disappointed with either service or food. The combination of their classic and newer dishes is mouthwatering, and the service patient and professional.

Popped in for lunch with my wife. Very good value for money. Atmospheric restaurant. Fundamentally French menu with wider Mediterranean influence. Both starters and main course delicious, Coq au vin and Oeuf Cocotte particularly flavoursome. Best Aperol Spritzer since I was in Italy! Service very attentive even though restaurant fully booked. Thank you very much. Hope to return soon.

We passed by this beautiful bar / restaurant and spontaneously went in. It's got a fantastic interior design Nd a great atmosphere. Service was excellent. I can recommend the Aperol Sprizz and Haggi Balls. In that street there are also lots of bars, restaurants and clubs. So perfect to start the evening!

After we had to cancel our initial 18:45 booking (13/12/14) I was delighted that the Staff at Maison Bleue manged to not only re-fit our table of 4 in for 21:30 but also provided us with superb service. Couldnt be faulted! Thanks again. This was our 4th visit and deffinately not our last!

We had family over from Australia and after traipsing the Royal Mile stopped off here for lunch. It was in the middle of the fringe so very busy at the time. Staff were very nice and run off their feet. Didn't like the boss giving a staff member a ticking off in front of customers for not being at the... More

We were staying in Edinburgh for our first wedding anniversary & wanted somewhere special to go on the evening of our anniversary. As our hotel was in the Grassmarket we had walked passed this restaurant on a few occasions & commented on how cosy & romantic it looked. So we decided to book. French cuisine probably wouldn't be our first... More
