Restaurant description

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 a lovely meal yesterday, the food was wholesome and flavoursome too. Pleasant atmosphere in cosy surrounds. The staff were courteous and attentive.

    Beautiful ambience. Muscles/calamari for starters delicious. Duck confit was ok. Personally I'd like to see a fuller frech menu and replacing the north African options with more classicly french dishes....but thats a personal preference. When finishing up we saw the couple next to us with a christmas menu that we weren't offered, which was a bit disappointing.

    Relaxed restaurant in the old town, full of character and cosy seating area at front for a drink before dinner. The food is good and service excellent.

    My Go-To French restaurant in central Edinburgh.Situated in the Old Town with cobbled, winding streets and character in abundance, Maison Bleue (Victoria St) has been 5* for all the years I have been a customer (circa 18 years!). Perfect for a romantic date or a catch up with family and friends. Great food and great surroundings!

    On arrival the staff member who took my name etc was rather abrupt so we did not feel welcomed.The building is old, full of history so stairs between floors are not easily negotiated, but all 4 of us knew this in advance & it's part of this restaurant's charm. The lighting level over our table was far too low & it was difficult to read menus. Service wasn't brilliant & no one came to ask if we wished desserts or coffees, so we had to request coffees. The starters were ok & we'd a decent gap before mains. I had the tagine but ithe portion size was too large & I couldn't finish it, though others enjoyed the chicken & ox cheeks. Overall, the food could have been served hotter and it lacked the 'wow' factor in terms of flavour & taste.

    Good food and a menu that left variety of choice, but the service of the dessert was a little sluggish. Good range of wine and overall excellent Value
