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!!
Excellent food and service as usual.
Quite disappointed by my visit, I remember visiting a while and having such an amazing time, remember the muscles used to be phenomenal. There weren't many gluten-free options, I was very limited especially with the sides( even the side vegetables weren't gluten free). The cocktails were ordered were small for the price we paid . I thought we didn't get much and I left feeling quite disappointed and ended up having to fill myself up at home. Service wise everyone was very friendly -even though they ended up getting our side order wrong they were still lovely and friendly
Great experience! From Shenzhen :)
Good service and food was nice. Did think the restraunt could do with a lick of paint and a bit of updating. Also think the prices were bit in the high side but generally good dining experience
Amazing food, great atmosphere, would definitely recommend and can’t wait to go back!
On an extremely busy night all servers were very friendly and polite and meal wasn’t rushed, food was great,
We are a family of four who come here regularly for birthday meals, have never been disappointed, excellent food, great service.
Mussels were a little small and disappointing. Chocolate and Cherry desert was amazing. Streaks cooked perfectly and delicious
Consistently good. Lunch is particularly good value
Love this restaurant, can’t wait to return. Thank you for a lovely night of excellent service even though you were so very busy, gorgeous food and lovely atmosphere. I would fully recommend this restaurant.
Staff were fantastic and so helpful , food was great quality and really good value. We had the lunch menu which were smaller portions but still enough for us!
Another great meal really look forward to our trip to Scotland have been coming for a number of years and have never failed to make a reservation with you as food and service are fantastic
Bit too cold when the door opens and our table was just at the entrance otherwise it’s a fantastic place
First class food and service Will definitely be back
Great evening in a great restaurant. One negative point was there is limited room between chairs upstairs and I actually had to ask one of the staff to stop kicking my chair whilst passing. Shame as it was a great experience.
Sorry to say but we were freezing all time as the door hasn’t any curtain or similar to keep the cold wind outside when somebody is coming in. So the atmosphere wasn’t nice at all. The rib eye was ordered medium rare and came medium well done. The shellfish pasta was made with (i think) cinnamon or any similar spice, which unfortunately was the main taste while eating this... the wine recommendation didn’t fit any of our meals - the picpoul we had was way to acid for all the dishes. Next time it would be nicer if the staff can recommend a wine that’s strong enough for both - pasta and meat: So we all four left with a bad feeling and won’t come back. Sorry to say. And once more this shows that you shouldn’t trust to the recommendations given in any Restaurant Homepage...
Everything was really good! Would definitely head back again!
Very good Scottish seafood dinner. See you next time. Alessio, Rome Italy
As always great experience and unreal food
Best restaurant in Edinburgh
Excellent food on a busy Saturday evening.
I am a pescatarian who was very much looking forward to fish and chips for lunch. I'd read reviews of your place that said you had options for beef fat chips or vegetarian chips. I was very disappointed to find out at the restaurant that this is no longer the case. Please make it more clear on your website that none of your chips are vegetarian!
Scallops Mussells and Steak cooked to perfection. Grand job by the staff team to feed our party of 10. Very generous hosts and a most friendly atmosphere
If you're in Edinburgh this is the place to eat Once you've been you will be back
