The Mussel Inn has become something of a Scottish seafood institution over the past decade. With premises in Edinburgh and Glasgow, this restaurant effortlessly sells over 1.5 tonnes of mussels during the Edinburgh Fringe festival.
Fresh, delicious and surprisingly affordable seafood is the game here - and these guys really know how to play. The Glasgow restaurant is nicely situated just off the beaten track in the city’s very heat, providing a healthy, yet overtly decadent alternative to the Glasgow culinary staple - fish and chips (don’t worry, The Mussel Inn does a cracking fish and chips too).
The restaurant is bright, modern and very grand - capable of seating up to 80 guests. Seafood is very much on-trend at the moment, which means these seats do tend to fill up, so book early to avoid disappointment.
Guests are treated to a full view of the open-plan kitchen, which provides a fascinating focal point in the restaurant and not to mention, full transparency - you really do get an idea of how fresh your food is. The Mussel Inn pride themselves on their sustainable sourcing and are keen to boast that their produce is shipped in regularly from West Coast fisheries.
This bright, beautiful and affordable restaurant provides fresh, light cuisine and is great value for money.
