we visited this restaurant with family during January and booked in advance to ensure we had a booking. On arrival we were given a warm greeting and offered a seat and drinks until the rest our family arrived. The meals this time were okay as they had ran out of fillet steak on Friday night and some of us had... More

The food and service were great and could not find fault. They found a table for us on a busy Saturday evening. Thanks to you all

Our party of six friends booked a table at Maison Bleue as a result of a personal recommendation and we were not disappointed. I had the Fondue de Camembert, hot, runny peppered Camembert, just perfect to dip into with crispy French bread sticks followed by Fish and Seafood Gumbo, with chorizo and shrimp rice, which was delicious. Two of our... More

Have eaten here a few times over the last few years and it never fails to impress. Dined on 3rd jan 2015, the environment is so atmospheric. We were shown to our table and offered drinks while we chose. Our servers were enthusiastic and attentive and knowledgeable. I started with the calamari surprise, it was as tasty and delicate as...

Visit with group of colleagues (apologies to other diner's). The food was tasty, well presented and in good portion. I had Thai beef, Moroccan lamb, sticky toffee pudding and lots of prosecco. The service was attentive but not intrusive, with only one small blip (several of my party's Scallops starter did not arrive). Overall a very good experience and I... More

Found this restaurant on the off chance during a stroll through the Grassmarket area after a long days sight seeing. From the outside looked very small and quiet compared to other places in the area but decided to take the chance. Fabulous staff who were very attentive and were able to recommend dishes from the menu. Food was absolutely amazing... More

My husband and I found this little restaurant on our final day in Edinburgh. We popped in for lunch and we couldn't have been happier. Nicky - our waiter was amazing right from our entry into the restaurant. Always smiling, extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. My husband had mussels as a starter and the pan fried sea... More

Maybe a harsh title? The ambience was superb, the location ideal, and the menu looked great. In our party of 5 wr enjoyed our food but it was not as good as we expected. The chateaubriand was not worthy half of the £28 my partner and I paid and we had bettee fillet steak at a much cheaper restaurant the... More

The Maison Blueue is a very casual restaurant and probably could do with a bit of brightening up. We had soups which were ok and mains of Chicken and spinach / goats cheese. Again the mains were ok, but somehow I was hoping for better when on the outside, looking in. I think I was put off by the very... More

We were having a pre-booked lunch at the Maison Bleue and being a large group of 20+ we had a set 3 course menu. Before arrival and on arrival we did informing the head waiter that we would expect to be finished at a certain time due to other arrangements later in the evening. Yes, no problem! The group arrived... More
