Café Marlayne Restaurant Diner Reviews
"One of several long established French restaurants in Edinburgh which make you feel as if you had walked into a bistro in Paris. This is a very small space but in many ways that adds to the ambiance. The food reflects the standard you would expect in a local bistro in France. Always busy"
