We had a lovely meal at Maison Bleue on Victoria Street. It was excellent value as we were able to get the "early dinner" deal which was 2 courses for £15. The wine was delicious and the atmosphere was very relaxed and calming.

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.

    It was fantastic!!! Our waitress EVA was great, very hospitable and warm. We cannot say that about the second waitress. Food mostly was tasty. I ordered beef cheeks, and in my opinion, the sauce on red wine base wasn't enough reduced, hence you can feel alcohol inside and sour taste of half reduced wine and for a person who knows how to cook that small detail could be quite important like in my case. I didn't tell anything to the waitress, because she was fantastic and I don't want to make any problems. The second thinks was scallops, I think they were tasty but a little bit too raw because they were white inside and you can feel it that they are not well done, and again for a person who knows how to prepare seafood it could be something big, however, the sauce was fantastic. About the drinks, prosecco drink was very good, although the wine in our opinion was too expensive according to the price. The general score would be 7/10, we will come back for sure, however, it would be nice to see improvement in the matter of some small things.

    A lovely meal and a great venue. We felt a little rushed though and would have like a bit more of a pause between courses.

    We visited here last Easter and had a really enjoyable visit so decided to head back. It was my 30th birthday and both myself and my husband were given a free cocktail on arrival - this was a nice extra touch.

    I did want the Camembert to start but sadly they had sold out. I opted instead for the feta and spinach parcels which were lovely, and the ratatouille like vegetables they were served on were delicious. My husband had calamari which I tried, it was lovely and light and not in the slightest bit chewy. They weren’t battered which is to my taste so just something to be mindful of!

    We both had the beef cheeks for main. Absolutely delicious. My only criticism would be that the food could have been hotter.

    We finished with a cheese board (to make up for the loss of Camembert at the start). Lovely cheeses but we weren’t keen on the oatcakes, but this is just personal taste.

    The wine was also really good. We had the Malbec and it was full bodied yet mellow.

    The decor and ambience is cosy and romantic which adds to the excellent meal.

    Overall another successful eating experience and we would certainly recommend.

    Incredible décor and lovely food. I had the confit duck with Toulouse sausage and cassoulet, which was divine. Very much recommend this place. First time I visited I had the most wonderful chocolate cheesecake which they sadly did not have this time. But the cheeseboard was great nevertheless.

    I booked this restaurant for a special occasion and it didn’t disappoint.
    It’s a beautiful restaurant with a fantastic ambience.
    Waiting staff were professional, friendly and courteous.
    Food- what can I say? It was absolutely delicious!! Best steak I’ve ever had!!
    Highly recommended and I will definitely return next time I’m in the city.

    On arrival the greeting was no good and initially service was just OK until more staff appeared. It is a nice place, the food and wine were excellent and reasonably priced.
    I would like to go back again but probably not in late afternoon

    We’ve eaten here many times before and thoroughly enjoyed it however we had some issues with the service on this occasion which was disappointing as we were celebrating a birthday meal. The waitress got the fish of the day wrong and did not advise of items that were unavailable until time of ordering food which was disapppointing. We had to wait a long time to order and drinks were slow to arrive. One seat was close to a thoroughfare/ staircase and was frequently knocked by waiting staff passing by. We had asked in advance that drinks and food be billed separately which was agreed however this was not done and the waitress had to be reminded.

    The food was lovely but unfortunately the service was not great on this occasion.
