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.

    Great experience overall from the location of our table, the spacing, service and food quality was second to none. Only downside was the long journey to the loo!

    The menu proved to be very interesting. It was more a fusion of North Africa and France, rather than straightforward French cuisine, which the restaurant’s name seemed to imply. Flavours were big, punchy and in your face, but that only made the dishes more interesting and enjoyable.

    Tasty food in an nice restaurant setting typical of the buildings in old town. Beautifully cooked Sea Bass after having the Ratatouille with spicy sausage. Wine was reasonably priced after starting with a round of Margaritas. As we were at the top of the building we sometimes needed to wait for service, but we weren’t in any hurry.

    Tasty food, good menu choices and staff were very attentive despite the restaurant being packed due to the rugby. Due to the large group beside us (21 people) meant conversation was difficult because of the acoustics in the room.
