We can't recommend this place highly enough. Our meal was a gift from a lovely friend who lives in Aberdeen and loves Maison Bleue. She was right to love it! The building itself is really interesting, a maze of rooms and stairs, a perfect cosy bistro. The staff are so friendly, helpful and happy to either share a joke or... More

My wife and I were touring in England and Scotland with a 9 places in 11 days bus (coach) tour. During our 2 night stopover in Edinburgh, we chanced upon Maison Bleue and were so enchanted that we returned on the second night. Among the items we sampled were fish (pan-fried bream), chicken in Vietnamese coconut curry sauce with angel... More

Went here recently on a Friday night with a party of 14. I have to say the food was very very good. The manager was accommodating for us when trying to find a good booking time too. The table we were given was slightly awkward shape wise and come desert the service was slightly slow. However I have to say... More

Good lunch time find, clearly a busy little haunt but wine price wiped out lunch time meal deal! Staff really friendly and welcoming.

I came here with my boyfriend. The setting was charming and cosy, the food was scummy, and the staff were friendly and helpful. We will definitely visit here again.

Chose Maison Bleue by chance from quite a few lovely looking places all providing a good value lunch menu, and we were really glad we did. Rustic tables, thick stone arches and walls blend beautifully with modern blue lit staircase with nude oil painting and spherical copper lights, all lit by candles. Chilled music completed the relaxed romantic ambience. Then... More

We visited on a Saturday night as a party of 6. The menu is interesting - slightly different from the norm. Knowledgable staff and a good wine list. We had pre dinner drinks, a couple of bottles of wine, coffee and dessert wine - £300 including the tip - reasonable value - I'd go back.

The location is great on beautiful Victoria street. It was like 4pm and we were the only customers so it would be unfair to judge atmosphere. We ate from the set menu. It was a good price for quite average food. I must say though the service was excellent. We had a French waiter. He was great! I would definitely... More

I visited Maison Bleue about 12 noon in late September on the last day of my visit to Edinburgh. It's in a side street with quite a bit of character and some interesting shops, so, good location. You enter via a door on the left hand side and the interior is quite subdued, dim even. There are a couple of... More

It's a good choice to take friends who are first timers to Edinburgh which is what we did, but not if you want value for money and good food. The location couldn't be better and on a Saturday night there was a great buzzy atmosphere but it was let down by the food which was way too fussy and really... More
