About Us


The Mussel & Steak Bar is dedicated to serving high quality, fresh, and locally sourced seafood and steaks with warm service and welcoming surroundings. Our restaurant is located on the Grassmarket, in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town, and just a few steps from the historic Victoria Street and Royal Mile. While enjoying the best mussels, oysters, and steaks that Scotland has to offer, you can catch a glimpse of Edinburgh Castle from our window.

Our menu features classic seafood and steak favourites with seasonal Scottish specialties: fresh oysters, kilo pots of steamed mussels, shellfish platters, and delicious matured Scotch beef steaks. Sourced from the West to North coast of Scotland, you can expect to find seafood specials of lobsters, crabs, langoustines and scallops.
