As one would expect from Malmaison, the food was immaculate and with their 2 courses for £19.95, great value. What absolutely made the meal perfect though was our extremely professional, attentive and genuinely interested waitress, Kim. Some establishments forget how important the front of house...More

Amazing service! We were offered meal choices from 2 menus and could choose anything we wanted. Our drinks arrived swiftly and the meal was simply divine. As it was my birthday I received a slate of delicious treats after our meal. Thank you

Total revamped and top bar. Much better menu. Posh sandwiches and tapas type eats. Don't confuse with the main brasserie restaurant which has fancier cuisine but isn't as comfortable.

We went to this restaurant whilst staying at the Malmaison Hotel. The food was exceptional, and although I couldn't finish the meal due to being full, I was actually upset I couldn't finish the plate! High class food with great service.

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

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.
