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.

    My wife and I had a lovely table by the window and a very nice meal. We went for the 3 course menu and both chose different dishes. All were very nice and the menu offered good value for Edinburgh old town. The wine was a little pricey but not excessively so. My only gripe was that even though the restaurant was quiet the service could have been much better. Our first two courses arrived very quickly, so much so that we had to ask to wait before dessert. Staff appeared to be inexperienced.

    We attended Maison Bleue to celebrate my daughters birthday. We were seated at a table by the window with lovely views looking down Victoria street. We have been to the Maison Bleue before and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The same can be said for this occasion too. Our waitress was most helpful and friendly. We all chose scallops to start which were delicious. I had the lamb tagine which was so tender it almost melted in your mouth. The only downside is the time allocated at the table. We were oven a choice of two tables. One where we could have stayed for two hours and one which was one and a half hours. We chose the later because the table was in a better position. The restaurant was busy but I felt the service between courses was very slow. So much so that we only managed to finish our main course when we had to vacate our table. We were relocated to the front of the restaurant to finish our meal. Not ideal but guess we were informed at start that table was required. Just thought if service had been a bit quicker we would have managed in the time allocated. All in all though it was an enjoyable evening.

    Food was delicious, especially starters, haggis balls and scallops. Staff friendly, attentive (but not too attentive) and price was reasonable. We made a request in our online booking for an upstairs table and we got it so we're pleased that our request was noted. Our second visit and we shall definitely return when in edinburgh

    Lovely romantic surroundings, excellent waiting staff and food was amazing! I had venison and partner had Vietnamese coconut chicken, both were excellent. For desert I had key lime pie and partner had coffee creme brulee and again both were excellent. Highly recommend and goes down as one of my top three Edinburgh restaurants.

    Booked for a family celebration and all enjoyed the occasion. The food was all perfectly cooked and presented, although there was a misunderstanding on one of the mains which was put right without query.
    The food was all perfectly prepared and well presented.
    Scallops and haggis balls great starters, couscous a great main.
    The restaurant was busy but space between tables, and atmosphere very good.
