Inspired by cuisines from around the world, Maison Bleue Le Bistrot brings a modern, unique and delicious take to Edinburgh's food scene.
Nestled in the heart of Morningside, the bistrot is cosy but modern with plush velvet seating, teacup candles and exposed brickwork.
With a Food First... Then Morals neon sign and tempting cocktail menu, it's the perfect spot for an evening date or lunch with friends.
Combining French, North African and Creole cuisines with a Scottish twist, there are so many unique dishes to choose from and the Morningside bistrot even has a specials menu inspired by the area.
To start, I tried Les Moules à la Bretonne which were mussels from Shetland in a creamy white wine sauce.
Tom ordered the Surprise calamari which looked absolutely gorgeous, topped with colourful peppers and vegetables. It tasted amazing but the recipe is top secret.
I ordered the nicoise salad from the Spring Specials which came topped with smoked salmon for the perfect Scottish twist.
Tom had the fish of the day which was sea bream, topped with fennel, tomatoes and harissa mayonnaise.
Saving the best until last, we ordered the Dark Chocolate Mousse to share for dessert. It was topped with rosemary Chantilly which tasted heavenly with the dark chocolate.
