Loaded with a gift voucher from "It Is On" we chose this location for an anniversary meal. Arriving a little after 7, the initial welcome and service were, well, timid and lacklustre. The staff clearly had some hidden sparkle and they warmed up during the...More

This used to be a favourite of ours. The bar badly needs a makover. It is dark, dingy and frankly not very clean. Would certainly not recommend it. You would have thought that during the festival it would be buzzing as it used to be....More

We went to Chez Mal with our tour group after visiting the Royal Yacht Brittania. The food was superb. From what I can remember the highlights were the cheese platter (dessert) and risotto for mains.

Had dinner with friends. Chose the set menu and was very impressed with the beef brisket as my main coarse and more than impressed that a cheese board was offered as an alternative to dessert and at no extra charge.

In the lively, bohemian Port of Leith, Malmaison Brasserie reigns supreme as a superlative place to meet and eat. The highly chic Art Nouveau French brasserie has sleek, stylish decor and actual port views. The staff are passionate about food, wine and service, and the dining room is lit with that brasserie buzz. Malmaison Executive Chef, Roy Brett has overall direction. Inspiration is taken from great 'French brasserie-style dishes' and further enhanced with a unique contemporary twist. Dishes include chargrilled ribeye with cafe de paris butter and fine beans and salmon fishcake with parsley sauce and buttered spinach. For those of you with a sweet tooth, be sure to try the tarte tartin with cr��me Chantilly.
