The haggis was a bit disappointing for me, not spicy enough. I suppose everyone is different in how they like their haggis.

We had a lovely time for our first time coming to the restaurant.

Good food and quick and punctual service which we were very impressed by!

The young lady Alex who was looking after us did a grand job and making sure we were looked after and providing a great service. Well done Alex! She’s a keeper! ☺️

First meal out since lockdown, Mharsanta did not let us down. Lunch was great, service was great, good music and ambience. A firm favourite since before lockdown, now observing the safety measures and is a safe place for nervous food lovers!

We went on a Tuesday afternoon for a birthday and it was understandably quiet as not many people are out to eat at this time. The girl that served us was very polite and helpful. The food was amazing and at such a great price! My dad got the mince and tatties with the poached egg (which none of us had heard of) but he was pleasantly surprised and loved it! High quality Scottish food with a twist! Will definitely be back! Thank you.

From booking to walking in the door was easy.The greeter was pleasant , not demanding and very courteous.The service of an outstanding meal was light unobtrusive but constantly on stand by. The food was perfectly cooked and served with little delay between courses. The Scots menu was a pleasure to select from and , happily, Scots in origin. I will not hesitate to send friends to Mharsanta for food or drinks. I shall be back

Very average food and service. The waitress had zero personality and had clearly not been trained properly, giving us no time to peruse menu, leaning over the table, brought bottle of wine already opened to table and placed it down with two glasses and didn’t pour it or ask if we wanted to try it first! Also, bottles of ketchup and mayo brought to all tables which in the light of corona virus is not a great idea. Food was average at best and overpriced, wine not good, poor service and no atmosphere. We will not be back unfortunately.

The table service wan't great and was a bit odd. Our cutlery was just dumped on the table rather than set out for us. We had to ask multiple times for drinks that got forgotten although it wasn't really that busy. It seemed like our server didn't know what she was doing. I had the veggie haggis, neaps and tatties which wasn't great. Haggis was a ok but a bit tasteless, neaps were watery, potato was ok. I didn't have the sauce with it, which probably covers a multitude of sins, but I think the food should stand on its own without it. The Host at the door was very friendly and helpful though, but I don't feel I would hurry back.

Dined at Mharsanta 2 nights in a row as it was well located for Celtic Connections festival gigs at City Halls and The Old Fruitmarket. Service was friendly, helpful and quick but not rushed, which suited us well as we didn't have a lot of time before our gigs.
The first night I had the Peterhead haddock and chips. The fish was fresh and beautiful cooked (although I like a bubblier batter). The second night I had the veggie burger topped with veggie haggis, which was tasty and moist - the best veggie burger I've had in a long time. Both nights, my fellow diners were very pleased with their meals (beetroot casserole, stovies, steak & sausage pie and the meat burger). Great value both nights, especially the Pre-Theatre Menu we had on the Friday night.

We were a group of five who had booked a table. Drinks took 30 minutes to arrive and my daughter's choice wasn't available so had to reorder. It came eventually at the same time as the food. So much for a pre-dinner cocktail. Our chosen wine was also out of stock. Overall service very slow. Very very poor choice of gluten free options. Coeliacs and those on gluten free diets should definitely give it a miss. Overall I was really disappointed.
