4.5 from jamesleon (61%) on May 4th, 2011 (8 years ago)

Café Marlayne, 13 Antigua Street, EH1 3NH, Edinburgh

I had collected 4 trips to Cafe Marlayne before even realising it. This excellent little place just keeps you coming back. OK, I've never ventured beyond the 5-7pm £10.95 set menu (although they don't offer the full a la carte at this time), but why bother when this is clearly one of the best dining deals in Edinburgh?

First of all £10.95 is ridiculous value for what you get. Bread, butter and iced tap water are offered before you ever order- and how many high-end places neglect this most basic of services? The choices aren't that limited with 4 starters and 4 mains. On my last two trips I had the chicken liver parfait to begin - served with garlic toast, and tomoto & rosemary chutney. Its rich, buttery and robust and smearing it on the toast with some chutney is an absolute delight. Next up on my last visit was whole seabass, stuffed with tarragon and rosemary sitting in a pool of lemon butter. This fish was PERFECTLY cooked - I mean to a tee and with accuracy you very very rarely come across in a cheaper restau. The plentiful butter sauce served to enrichen, while the herbs inside added some extra interest. Any excess sauce was mopped up by the accompanying veg to share. Nothing special here - just nicely cooked broc, green beans and new potatoes.

All other dishes I've had here have been similarly delicious - maybe 3 or 4 key ingredients that go together, cooked well: what more could you ask for?

A quick note on the service, which has always been super-friendly and efficient.

Run, don't walk to this fantastic little restaurant.

4.5 from boatman (12%) on January 29th, 2015 (4 years ago)

Café Marlayne, 13 Antigua Street, EH1 3NH, Edinburgh

Have taken friends here on several occasions and have never been disappointed. It's a bit like a Tardis small and inviting at the entrance and opens up to warm and comfortable dining room. The staff are friendly and welcoming and as Jamesleon says Bread, butter and iced tap water are offered before you ever order. If you enjoy your food with a French connection you will enjoy eating at Café Marlene. Bon appetit.
