Food was great, service and venue top notch. Only missed a 5star rating because of the high price. Great service in a nice comfortable modern hotel bar. Food was really delightful and was a good experience. We opted for the champagne afternoon tea as it was a birthday celebration. The price was very high, almost double other prestigous restaurants and... More

Took advantage of a pre-paid deal as part of gift. I really enjoyed the day. The last time I was in the brasserie at the Mal' it was a dark atmospheric place; this most recent visit was a brighter more airy affair. We had a couple of beautifully presented gins as an aperitif and then sped into some really fresh... More

Before I go on about how great the food and service were, I have to say that the only negative aspect of our Malmaison experience was the surly, unkempt bartender who had four guests to serve and could not multi-task. One client asked for his pre-dinner drinks to be added to his restaurant tab and he was told "I am... More

Despite having very elegant look this restaurantbar lacks a bit of character. Yes it is underground but doesn't compete with so many wonderful places like this in Glasgow. Decent choice for breakfast however we love to get more fresh fruits range and cooked porridge.

My wife and I booked this on an Itison deal, offering the chateaubriand with trimmings and a bottle of wine for half the normal price. We enjoyed the food so much, we both agree that we will return and happily pay full price to have the same again. Service was friendly and efficient, without being over-attentive or intrusive. The wine... More

Yeh so it was awful. I didn't get a starter despite being starving in hopes to save my macros for what was promised to be a delightful main. I got the halibut which was £18 and I swear on my life...there was approx 7.5g of halibut on my plate. It was COVERED in what looked like spiralized white cabbage...so I... 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.

What's cooking? Inspiration is taken from great 'French brasserie-style dishes' and further enhanced with a unique contemporary twist. Dishes include char-grilled 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 creme chantilly.
