SquareMeal Review of Café Marlayne

A long-time favourite for intimate French food in Edinburgh’s New Town, Marcelline Levicky’s marvellous little Café Marlayne scores heavily with its simple, unfussy approach and consistency. Warm wooden tones, twinkling lights and old posters set the tone for a menu that seldom varies from week to week – although that’s the way Marcelline’s regulars like it. Boudin noir, whole baked sea bass, rack of Borders lamb and roast pork belly are perennial hits, but also look out for Gressingham duck breast with spiced red cabbage and port reduction or rose veal chop with wilted gem lettuce and a poached duck egg. Prices are very fair (especially for the pared-back lunch menu), and there are some quaffable wines to wash it all down. There’s a larger branch at 13 Antiqua Street (0131 558 8244), opposite the Edinburgh Playhouse.
