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.

    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.

    Absolutely wonderful food. the Surprise Calamari didn't disappoint in any way and the sticky toffee pudding was amazing

    Absolutely fantastic restaurant. The food, service and overall experience would be hard to rival. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

    Excellent food and service. Ambiance was also very good. Only complaint would be that the chairs are very uncomfortable.

    Dined after visiting Whisky experience around 8pm. We all enjoyed a three course meal and wine and no one made any comment which was negative. Booking arrangements were spot on. It was a old, snowy day and there were probably fewer dining on the cold Monday evening.
