The Mussel & Steak Bar
The Mussel & Steak Bar, nestled in Edinburgh’s Old Town Grassmarket, is the perfect location for a restaurant serving locally sourced market produce.
Opened in 2005 by restaurateur Marshall Milne, this independent restaurant has been a firm favourite of visitors and Scots alike for over 18 years. Inspired by Marshall’s love of fresh food and Scotland, our unique eatery is popular and bustling all year round.
In our kitchen, our talented chefs are inspired to plan and create delicious dishes, making the most of our high quality ingredients. Our produce is sourced from the renowned fish merchants on the west coast of Scotland and award winning farms in the borders and central belt of Scotland.
Our restaurant has a warm, welcoming atmosphere with caring and dedicated staff. We cater to large celebrations and groups. In the summer months, our popular outdoor terrace seating area allows you to soak up the sunshine whilst sipping your chilled wine or beer.
Our wine list and drink menu is affordable and varied enough for everyone’s palate. We have worked with independent wine merchants to bring some great wines and local whiskies to your table.

Not my first trip here, and it won’t be my last, the kitchens and the staff didn’t disappoint, food was amazing. Thank you.”
My partner and I came for a valentine's dinner and it was simply sublime. I had the surf and turf and was astonished by the portion size, almost half a kilo of beautiful fresh mussels in a gorgeous white wine, cream and shallot sauce, two huge and delicious crevettes and a phenomenal 8oz ribeye that was cooked to perfection. My partner had a kilo of mussels and she was delighted with her meal too!
To start, we had queen scallops to share and these were beautifully presented and delicious. We were also given a complimentary oyster each which was really appreciated.
Our servers were attentive and lovely and we both thought the decor and atmosphere was spot on.
All in all, one of our favourite meals we've ever had. Thank you!
If you really love mussels this is the place. In the central of the town, small, clean and tidy. Service is quick and friendly. Seafood dishes are up to the standard.”
