Delicious food and wonderful atmosphere

visited Musa for the first time in February for an anniversary meal and was very impressed. I had the goats cheese salad to start which was amazing, and a very large portion of cheese as a starter which i loved. My boyfriend had the Cullen skink which was also delicious and very authentic.

The best thing about going to musa is the general atmosphere that's created in such a cool redesigned church. The food was great, lots of good choices on the menu and fantastic service as well. Seemed to be quite busy over.lunch during Fridays so I would book to avoid disappointment it's not a huge establishment. I really enjoyed sitting in... More

Had a great meal and enjoyed the menu recommendations for the type of beer to have with your drink. Live music was at the right level not requiring you to shout. It wasnt like lift music either! I will definately go again as all the other items on the menu need to be eaten!

We havn't eaten here for about 6 months, but came back to what we thought was a pretty reliable and alble pub. Last reviews we did for it were all 5 *. This time only the standard of service was maintained. The food was disappointing and my wife's salad was a huge plate of Rocket with some goat's cheese, squash... More

Visited Musa for only the second time and had the same experience as the first time. Overpiced food, tiny portions and had numerous people raving about how unbeliveably awesome the craft beer was. It was ok, the way they acted you'd think they beer contained £100 pound notes! Get over yourselves, it's beer! Staff wer extremely slow, had to constantly... More

The restaurant its self is really interesting and different and the atmosphere was nice. The food was nice; nice flavour and presentation but I just felt it was so expensive for what it was. I cant complain about the food because I would happily order and eat the same dish if I was to ever go again, but its more... More

I was invited here for dinner with colleagues last week and was excited as I’d been meaning to try Musa for a while. I ended up leaving very disappointed. The falafel for starter was pretty flavour-less and was more like pakora in terms of texture (deep fried and too crispy), but still edible. The main course I had can only... More

Good food, good service, not cheap but you are paying for the quality. Central location for quick office lunch. You can enjoy dinner with wine and live music :)

We've eaten here several times but this time something just wasn't right. The salt and black pepper squid which we had last time worked beautifully with lime and coriander flavours, but the red mullet with the same flavours didn't live up to my expectations. Slightly oily, not-quite-crisp-enough batter did nothing for the fish, which was slightly undercooked. The dressing needed... More
