We booked on the Saturday afternoon for the same evening, and we were fortunate that there was a table for four available. The starters and mains were delicious. Good Sancerre and continuous supply of fresh tap water. Waiters very friendly and helpful. We sat upstairs and it was all very convivial.

Just walking down the street looking for dinner choices and looked in the window of this small French/Moroccan style bistro. I ate teh spicy sausage (not that spicy)/marinated chicken kebabs with couscous. Excellent. My wife had teh beef cheeks over mashed leeks. Both were very good. The chocolate taste at the end was rich and more a mousse than a... More

As part of a celebration we dined here for a place with atmosphere, which we enjoyed immensely. Although we didn’t book and were lucky enough to get a table on a Saturday night. I love places like this which genuinely remind you of being back in Paris, stirring fond memories. The service was great from the start, the staff attentive... More

My husband and I were looking for somewhere to have a quick - but nice dinner before the cinema. We came across this charming wee place and we had a lovely dinner at a very reasonable price. I had a 'different' calamari starter followed by sea bream which was moist and well cooked. My husband had soup then a chicken... More

Small, but nice variety of food, very delicious, portions could be a little bigger, nice ambiance inside. Shame restaurant was closed in the afternoon as we wanted to go back there, but was closed after 3pm.

Pre-theatre we popped in to Maison Bleue and were delighted with the experience. Intimate candle-lit table for two in truly fascinating premises that exuded history from stone arches, wood paneled walls and a mixture of vintage chairs painted grey. Glad that it was styled as French food and three courses with a Moroccan chicken tagine washed down with a very... More

WE had dinner here. Outside it seemed to indicate that the cheaper early evening menu was available for an extended time period but once we were seated we found it wasn't. Liked the ambience and the waitress was delightful so we stayed. Had 4 starters as a sort of tapas meal for 2 which worked very well. The mains were... More

I visited on my own on a Sunday evening, taking advantage of the early dining menu. Loved the decor, and the waitress was lovely. Really good food too - I had the haggis balls (a good way to try it!), and the fish special which was salmon with Thai green sauce and rice. Really well cooked - not overdone. Highly... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
