    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.

    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

    My 3 friends and I had a delicious lunch at Maison Bleue. The waitress was very helpful and suggested changes to the set menu to suit us. All the dishes were very tasty and excellent value.

    The venison and sea bass were delicious. The whisky cream and berries was especially light and tasty. We had a table by the window and the service was great.

    Lovely ambience and food. The braised ox cheeks and Bouilibasse were excellent. Coconut cicken also delightful all washed down by a lovely deep Moroccan wine.

    Friendly welcome by the staff. Had pre dinner drink, and didn’t feel hurried to go to our table. Service was attentive, without being overly so. The quality of all 3 courses was superb, the highlight for me was the battered haggis, with the whisky jus. Good wine to, that was suggested would compliment the meal...it did! Well done!
