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.

    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.

    Fabulous from start to finish. There were six of us out to celebrate my sons 21st birthday. The interior of the restaurant is very unique and the ambience is relaxing. Both the food and service were excellent. The menu is varied and there is something to suit all tastes. Both the rib eye and fillet steaks were of excellent quality, we could not fault anything. A drink and desert were given to my son on the house, a nice touch for his birthday. We will definitely be back.

    Great ambience, lovely food and good wine. A little disappointed by the number of options "not available this evening" but overall a good experience.

    Service and food excellent. Table was in a bad position. Got bumped into on occasions as people were passing. Husbands chair was very low set for the table so was a little uncomfortable despite him being tall. If I had sat in this chair I would not ah e reached the table comfortably. It was quite noisy as restaurant very busy and the music was a little too loud for my liking!
