"In the lively, bohemian Port of Leith, Malmaison Brasserie reigns supreme as a superlative place to meet and eat. The highly chic Art Nouveau French brasserie has sleek, stylish decor and actual port views. The staff are passionate about food, wine and service, and the dining room is lit with that brasserie buzz. Malmaison Executive Chef, Roy Brett has overall direction. What's cooking? Inspiration is taken from great 'French brasserie-style dishes' and further enhanced with a unique contemporary twist. Dishes include char-grilled ribeye with cafe de paris butter and fine beans and salmon fishcake with parsley sauce and buttered spinach. For those of you with a sweet tooth, be sure to try the tarte tartin with creme chantilly. "

We had a very late lunch here, so the restaurant was understandably very quiet. This did not spoil our experience at all. The chateaubriand was probably the best I've ever had, excellent quality meat cooked perfectly. The service was very professional, courteous and pleasant. Overall an experience I would not hesitate to repeat !

My husband and I went for dinner on Valentine's Day and had a fabulous meal, the chateaubriand was excellent and our waitress, Alice, was a delight. We moved through to the bar for cocktails after dinner, and can thoroughly recommend a Charlie Stewart made by Connor - another example of the great staff, friendly, professional and welcoming. We'll be back!... More

Not the cheapest place to eat in Glasgow so was expecting something special! But left disappointed! Food was very average. Waitress messed up the desert order and was very clumsy all night dropping cutlery and spilling wine. Don't think I'd pay to eat here again, sorry!

Very nice restaurant, Helpful polite staff. The whole eating experience was lovely. It is possibly a little expensive to eat here but it was worth every penny. I had a steak and it was cooked to perfection.
