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

Had a very relaxed boozy 3 course late lunch. The food was very nice, served quickly, politely and was piping hot. The wine of the month washed it all down very well. Lovely surroundings too. Will be back.

Echo all the other positive comments about this restaraunt. Great decor and atmosphere. Absolutely no complaints on the service and the food excellent. It is not cheap but at this level of quality this is not a negative comment.

Hot evening during visit to festival fringe this conveniently located (to my next show) restaurant promised much in terms of an interesting menu and lively atmosphere. Promises, promises . . . . Slow service was disappointing, especially in terms of rehydrating, and once it came the Moroccan house white had not "travelled well" and did not enhance the wonderful scallop... More

During the Festival, without reservations, it was difficult to find a good restaurant. We wandered about and near the Grassmarket on Victoria Street we found Maison Bleue. The maître de told us The wait would be 30 minutes but we were welcome the sit in the ante room. The surroundings were very cozy and we started a bottle of wine.... More

Favourite for my wife and I. Try the Haggis Balls. Also do a great steak. Ask for the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. It is to die for. Restaurant is in the Charming old Grassmarket. Really recommend it.

Wine reasonably priced. Only tiny issue was that food was a but slow coming out for a pre theatre menu. But next time we will just go earlier... More

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
