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!!
very touristy, no atmosphere upstairs at all, no scottish or edinburgh feel at all. slow to take order. food in fact very nice. slightly overpriced.
Fantastic staff, beautiful restaurant and mouthwatering food. Highly recommend a visit, even higher recommendation - order the mussels. Perfection !!
the food is great, it would be better if hot water can serve quick.
Excellent food! Would be nice to see a couple more lagers on the drink menu. Will certainly book again
Unser Steak war voll Sehnen, fast ungenießbar. Das Restaurant ist sehr klein, man sitzt sehr eng, daher auch nicht unbedingt gemütlich.
Terrible Attitude and Terrible Service
The food & waiters were amazing and could not fault the young waiter we had - it was his first evening. We had a table reserved for 8.15pm but weren’t seated until gone 9.00pm during this time we were squashed into the small bar / entrance area, such a shame the start was not relaxed.
The food was gorgeous and the service was excellent despite how busy the restaurant was. Can’t wait to come back.
We love the food and the wine. The menu was excellent and we wound definitely return
We have had our dinner, the staff and the meal where excellent
Oysters were so fresh and delicious, best we have ever had. Followed by two fantastic mains accompanied by wonderful service and drinks. Brilliant - thank you!
Excellent, cuisine de qu'elle avec des produits frais. Réservation obligatoire. En plus le serveur parle un peu français. Super sympathique
Overall a good experience
Thank you for the window booth. Fantastic food.
Small intimate restaurant offering fresh sea food. We started with delicious baked mussles in garlic and butter followed by nice oysters. We split a great ribeye steak. All tummy!!
We were disappointed to show up 10 minutes late and our table to have been taken. Whilst dining with important clients as the meal continued later than we had initially intended the girls at the till then began to count the money very loudly right beside our table and hint towards us leaving. This was disappointing as service was slow and we weren’t able to order drinks as we would have liked and there was a distinct lack of atmosphere as you would expect from a top Edinburgh restaurant. The evening was disappointing and it seems there has been a significant change in the restaurant priorities and it’s steer towards trying to complete as many orders as possible instead of given a service experience.
Amazing dinner, as usual! The steak was cooked to perfection and the chips...fabulous!
Excellent night food fantastic and the service was first class.
All the food was delicious — the mussels with two different sauces (curry coriander and wine garlic), the queen scallops starter, and the amazing chips. Service was quick and our Portuguese waiter was lovely. The prices were reasonable too. Would return when I’m back in Edinburgh.
Excellent food. Very efficient and friendly staff. Would definitely come again next time we are in Edinburgh and will recommend to friends and family.
I booked because your lunch menu on-line had rump steak on it. When we arrived we were told that the menu had changed and steak was not available. However even when we were sitting in the restaurant and checked your website it still said rump steak was on the lunch menu. Most disappointing as we only booked because steak was on the menu. The fish and chips was not very good! The Zinfandel was not properly chilled. There were no clams in the shellfish platter as stated on the menu.
The food was delicious. The selection of seafood was ample and my friend and I couldn’t help but order many dishes to share. 10/10 would eat there again soon.
Muy buena calidad, buen servicio. Tan solo un problema al final con los postres que fue espléndidamente gestionado por la chica que nos atendió. El local algo pequeño, pero quizá ése sea uno de sus encantos.
