Mussel Inn Seafood Restaurant

Mussel Inn is on Rose Street, a short walk from Princes Street, in Edinburgh’s New Town.
The Mussel Inn is, without doubt, one of the city's most popular restaurants. The restaurant is always fully booked at weekends and most of the time during the week you will find a queue of eager diners waiting patiently at the door.
The Mussel Inn serves some of the tastiest seafood in Scotland and it’s most popular dish by far is the steaming pots of mussels with a classic white wine and shallots, available by the kilo or 1/2 kilo.
The restaurant atmosphere is busy, and the staff, who are always run of their feet, are always helpful & friendly.
