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.

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.

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.
