    Light, airy dining room. Friendly attentive staff. My wife and I enjoyed six different menu choices between us and all were good. Wine reasonably priced and the complimentary prosecco with the three course offer was a nice touch.

    We enjoyed our dining experience at Malmaison, Leith, Edinburgh, during our meal the waiting staff were very attentive and helpful, in fact whilst talking to our girl server we mentioned we were celebrating our 47th wedding anniversary that evening, after we finished our main course we were presented with a dessert for 2 with Congratulations written in chocolate on the plate on the house, we were delighted with this and after telling our 2 daughters they were very impressed. We would like to thank the staff at the Malmaison Edinburgh for their kindness in this matter. The only downside is the 10% service charge added to the bill, surely it should be up to the customer to decide if they should leave a gratuity or not.

    Good ambiance and friendly service but food a little lack lustre. The building and location are great.

    Excellent food and good service. Lovely location and plenty of space in the car park. A pity it was so quiet, but at least this meant that we could converse easily.

    Service was good & friendly staff, nice lighting, decor & atmosphere. The starter which was salt & pepper squid was beautiful, the bang bang chicken was lovely however the Asian salad was a bit disappointing although nice flavours ( it looked like a cheap asda salad mix of shredded carrot & plain lettuce). The most disappointing part of the meal was the potatoes, they were black in colour and tasted totally off so we couldn't eat them. We informed the waitress and she explained that was the kind of potatoes they were, so we tried to tentatively taste them again & truly could not eat them. We then approached a male waiter, who understood and kindly offered us other options and we decided on a portion of chips, which we wouldn't have to pay for & he was very apologetic and kind. The pudding rhubarb & custard & cheese board were nice too. When we received the bill, we got charged for the chips, so I had to explain to the original female waitress that the potatoes were off & the chips were a to not be charged for. Sadly she continued to say the potatoes were okay, I had to re explain that they were off ( yet again) , this was a bit frustrating and spoiled our dining experience. She did deduct the price of the chips.

    The food was disappointing. The service was good, The final bill for a £19,95 special deal, was £105. One bottle of wine and two glasses. Sides cost £4 each. New potatoes which may have been new last year, but not this and miscellaneous greens. Bread and olives added £7.50 and then a service charge, not apparently advised anywhere, of 10% was added to the bill. Looking at the menu online, it is in the smallest of writing at the foot of the bill. What does discretionary mean? Could we have not paid it?

    I spent the meal looking across the road to Fishers restaurant and knowing that the food there was of a different standard. There are 50 bars and restaurants within a quarter mile. Why would we go to the Mal again?

    Not impressed with the starter (cheese and some greens) - but the main and dessert were wonderful (Trout and sampler).
    Did not get a very good welcome when we arrived 10 minutes early - staff were sitting about but did not let us into restaurant - however, once we did get in, the service was impeccable.
