Situated on Rose Street in the centre of Edinburgh, Mussel Inn is one of the citys premier destinations for fresh seafood.
And for good reason! Not only does it serve some of the tastiest seafood in Scotland, but the atmosphere is amazingly relaxed and the staff as friendly as you could wish for.
Scottish shellfish are at the heart of the menu. With direct access to shellfish growers on the West Coast of Scotland from Mull of Kintyre to Shetland, the quality is always the best available and its no surprise that the Mussel Inns trademark dish is the kilo pot of mussels. For your further pleasure , why not start your meal with some fresh oysters or select a tasty, seasonal surprise from the Daily Specials board The shellfish and seafood are complimented by a well- balanced wine list and a selection of home-made desserts such as, melting chocolate pudding or apple strudel.
The Mussel Inn specialises in a range of no-nonsense fish and shellfish dishes served in a variety of portion sizes, and with a choice of sauces and cooking styles. Presentation is un-fussy and the ingredients used are excellent. The atmosphere is busy, and the staff friendly.
