The mussel and steak bar has been a firm favourite for over 17 years with worldwide visitors and Scots alike since we opened in 2005. We have been granted the most popular seafood and steakhouse by various organizations. Our restaurant has been awarded a member of the Scotch Beef Club because we have inspected and satisfied the criteria regarding the quality, provenance, handling and preparation of the scotch beef that is served.

                                The steak was a secondary cast member - oysters, langoustines, and mussels were the stars of the show. The quantity and quality of the shellfish was impressive while the steak was quite unimpressive. Particularly enjoyed the Ginger Grouse cocktail with my fresh oysters.

                                Great meal of steak and mussels. I was expecting a few mussels with the steak and was surprised to have a meal sized portion. Delicious. The bread is fresh baked on site and even the salad was delicious
