In a striking blue building in Edinburgh’s Old Town, Maison Bleue serves an adventurous mixture of world cuisines. French, North African and Scottish dishes are served in a unique setting that includes stone arches and a wooden spiral staircase.

On the Maison Bleue menu, an innovative blend of international dishes sits alongside unmistakably Scottish treats, like haggis balls in beer batter, with clapshot tatties and whisky sauce. The French delicacy of frogs’ legs is given an oriental twist, with the addition of soya sauce and a wasabi dip. Vegetarians are treated to recipes like spiced goat's cheese and spinach in filo pastry.

As well as banquet menu options, Maison Bleue Edinburgh has an extensive wine list, which includes bottles from around the globe. These are perfect to enjoy with the cheese boards served for dessert.

Just 10 minutes’ walk from Edinburgh Rail Station, Maison Bleue restaurant is an innovative addition to Edinburgh’s Old Town.

    Good atmosphere, okay food but slow service. It took fifty minutes to take our food order and almost two hours before we received our main meal.

    They looked after our 3yr old really well organising a special meal for her. Great drinks selection and lovely food.

    We had dinner. There was a good choice, with some quite unusual dishes, many of north African origin. The food was excellent, service attentive and friendly without being gushing. It's not cheap but a fair price for what is on offer. We also had lunch there - a fixed price formule which was very good. Toilets are up two flights of quite steep stairs - I don't know if the restaurant has an alternative for people who couldn't manage to climb the stairs.

    A very pleasant Old Town ambience but the meal itself was very disappointing.
