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.

    Nice atmosphere and delicious food.Had fish of day and steaks as our mains. Beautifully tender.
    We were celebrating our daughters 21st and our family group all cleaned our plates. A bit of a delay between courses but staff apologised. Gave us time to enjoy tasty wine. Would happily return.

    Nice restaurant atmosphere with tasty food, the starters in particular were delicious. The minus points: Quite pricey; the chef's take on 'Medium' in our opinion was well short of ours; and the waitress whilst friendly made several mistakes. Would we go back again - probably but it wouldn't be a high priority
