About The Mussel and Steak Bar
Casual and relaxed dining experience in the heart of the Grassmarket. Serving succulent steaks, moorish seafood- all sustainable and local!!
I sent this earlier by email : - Good morning I would just like to give you some feedback on our dinner last night, we did raise the following with the waiting staff but just want to ensure it was passed onto the relevant person. Our fish was absolutely delicious, our steaks although cooked perfectly only tasted of charcoal 😢, which was very unpleasant. It wasn't just 1 piece of steak it was all 3, the only way we could eat them was by smothering them in the sauce which was with the mussels. Really tasted as though the grill needed a good clean, which was an awful shame as we had been looking forward to the dinner for so long. Just wanted to let you know, incase you get any other complaints re this. Regards
Excellent service and atmosphere will recommend and visit again !
Lovely meal and great service I would highly recommend it.
Was absolutely lovely! Great food and great staff! Would go again for sure!
No gluten free beer for my husband and when you go out to eat it nice to have a drink with your meal he doesn’t drink wine so was a bit disappointed.
Un buen restaurante en grassmarket para probar el típico salmón y mejillones. Recomendable 100%
Fab find, a family favourite. Good for a special occasion as a littlle pricey.
My second visit and loved the seafood platter, my family all had steak which they loved too, I would definitely recommend this dinning experience whilst in Edinburgh 😁
The mussels were excellent and everything else was great. We had a lovely dinner.
Big quality coming with a small price, and with plenty of welcome
The food and service were excellent - more expensive than I would usually have gone for, but based on previous reviews I took the chance, and don't regret it! it was well worth ut
Absolutely lovely, the mussels are really fresh. I have got mussels and steak to satisfy my needs for both, it's by far one of the best seafood dinner I ever had in Edinburgh.
The whole time we were there a crowd of people were in the reception part waiting for tables so the majority of the meal felt uncomfortable and hard to enjoy. You couldn't really relax as people were staring at us the whole meal with that "we want your table please hurry" look on their faces. The door was also being opened every 30 seconds letting in a cold draft as people were coming in then leaving when they saw how crowded it was. Also, to let the waitress through to the tables people were having to constantly shuffle around and i had people banging constantly into me while I was trying to eat. I'm guessing the place was understaffed the night we went as the waitress was running around like a lunatic so the ordering felt rushed too and she was always looking very stressed. The food was great so by that I would recommend it, but the whole setup felt very unorganized.
My son and I really enjoyed your beef steaks. So delicious!!
Food was delicious just took a bit long to take our order , other than that very happy!
What a little gem in the middle of Edinburgh. Great 👍 seafood, mouthwatering sirloins and mussels. Accompanied by a very tasty Viognier and personable service by 2 waitresses. Well done and many thanks for a great experience.
Lovely date evening. Looks like a small place from the outside not realising there was an upstairs! Looked after well by Bartec (I think that’s his name) who was consistently checking to see if everything was ok for us. The food was amazing although when asked for medium rare steak it came more on the blue/rare side. However I’m not fussy on this and the steak was lovely. On the another note I have never seen my parter eat so quick, he had the mussels Will definite return at some point!
The food is very delicious, and staff is very friendly:) I like it!
Great value and service! Pleasantly surprised with the amount I got for the seafood platter!
I very much enjoyed my meal although it was a bit pricey. Would be nice to have some cheaper choices on the menu.
It's our ritual. Whenever we visit Edinburgh we visit Mussel & Steak.
