A friend recommended this great restaurant at the end of Edinburg's popular Grassmarket area. It's a small place, friendly and cozy, and we loved it! Wife had salmon and I had one of the best filets I have ever tasted. Scottish beef that melted in your mouth and was so tender you could cut it with a fork. I highly recommend this wonderful little restaurant.

I visited with grandchildren who are easily embarrassed, so when the two portions of peppered squid arrived I said nothing. If kids were not there I would have returned the dishes. Basically 5 slim rings with dish filled with broken up Chinese crackers, what!?!? If you want mussels in Edinburgh go to the Mussel Inn on Rose Street, better mussels, better value by miles!

Fantastic restaurant just off the Royal Mile. We had the seafood platter, seafood linguini and salmon and would highly recommend! Delicious and fresh! Save room for the sticky toffee pudding :)

Lunch with friends and Family. The food was very nice with some creative and innovative dishes. We had one slight problem with the steak being overcooked, this issue was remedied immediately and with a smile. The rest of our food was delicious and I do have to say the service from our waitress was exceptional.

Food was lovely, service a bit hit and miss but it was crazy busy. Obviously a favorite for both locals and tourists alike.

Recommend booking like we did or you might be disappointed.

Overall I'd say it was good Food, reasonable service and good value.

Definitely be back!

We made reservations at Mussel & Steak Bar during one of our evenings in Edinburgh after seeing the great reviews. We were not disappointed! We were seated upstairs in a corner booth and it was very cozy. We ordered all three types of mussels, which were amazing, and the bread and fries were delicious as well. We also tried all of the ice creams, which were great! The service was awesome! We highly recommend!
