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.

    Lovely atmosphere and location. Unfortunately the service was very slow. Two and a half hours for two courses and some of the food was cold, but delicious.

    Great food, service a bit rushed (perhaps because we were students using the 'student-tuesday-deal)

    We were slightly disappointed in our visit here. We ate of the fixed price menu which gave a reasonable choice. There were 3 of us and we each had a different choice for the starter. Verdict. Soup was very nice. Quail egg and Black pudding was nice but would not order again. The terrine was more a Pate which was nice and if you like smooth creamy Brussels Pate this is the dish for you. We had the Rabbit and the Fish dishes which we found to be ok but nothing special. We also had the sticky toffee pudding which was the star of the show and would return for that alone. The fixed price menu is good value but we were not excited by it. I have noticed that the fixed menu's change so I cannot give a full judgement on food. The restaurant itself is a nice place to sit and eat and the staff are attentive to your needs.

    Very pleasant. Portions were a bit too small for our liking.

  • (((** 27 March 2017 by Andrew Shepherd from Dollar

    The ambiance of the restaurant was perfect and the staff were all very courteous and helpful.
    However, the service times for each course was very slow which we believe was due to the fact that there was a large party in the restaurant on the evening which required a lot of the staff's attention. The food was as good as ever although one of the starters was not as hot as it should have been at serving.
    The time delays were noted by the staff and a discount was offered on our final bill without having to ask which was a nice touch.
    So, slightly disappointed on the evening but given the circumstances maybe additional kitchen and waiting staff could have been made available.

    This place has an unique ambiance. Lovely nooks and crannies in which to enjoy a very good standard of food. Service was great. A touch of unobtrusive humour is always welcome! The Scottish lamb tagine was thoroughly enjoyed. The coconut and lime Thai chicken had beautiful flavour balance. Often passed this place and wondered what it would be like. Now I know. Good, and we'll worth the visit.
