About Malmaison Brasserie - Edinburgh
Always dependably good, a super brassiere in a great location
We have eaten here often and brought a family with young along on a Friday night, the staff copped admirably and the food was very enjoyable, with a large menu selection and good portion sizes. Its been around for year as it is such a well run restaurant, in a great location. We will be ck again for sure :)
The food, service and atmosphere were wonderful. My wife particularly enjoyed her crab gazpacho and has been raving about it ever since.
Modern British brasserie in Leith
Housed in the eye-catching Malmaison hotel on Tower Place, the Chez Mal restaurant enjoys spectacular views over the Port of Leith. Given a smart refurbishment in 2016, the dining room has a sleek, contemporary look and light, spacious feel. The new look bar is a hip hangout with craft beers and innovative cocktails while the waterfront terrace is always popular when the sun makes an appearance.
Seasonal menus and brasserie classics
The menus at Chez Mal restaurant change with the seasons and are neatly balanced between classic brasserie dishes and contemporary international choices. From the starters, this means that diners can choose from dishes such as the prawn cocktail and chicken liver parfait or crab tacos, Thai BBQ chicken lollipops and fritto misto.
Main courses might be a rack of herb-crusted West Country lamb or pasta with grilled tiger prawns, cherry tomatoes, chilli and crab bisque. A grill section offers lobster, Black angus steaks and the mighty Mal burger. Seafood fans will find much to enjoy. There is always a set menu and the set price Sunday brunch feast is an epic affair.
