Went to Musa with a big company but were all accommodated at the same table upstairs. It was a very busy Saturday night and the vibe was great. The menu is just the right size and should satisfy most palates. I had the fantastic haggis & black pudding spring rolls which I believe are something of a staple, followed by... More

Our table was in a terrible location, near the stairs. I had to stand on the step and squeeze into my chair. I faced the waiter station and blinding light from the kitchen. Not very pleasant! I could not sit on the opposite side because of the table behind us was so close and if we pushed the table we'd... More

My partner and I dined here not long ago. It was one of the best steaks I have had in my life. My partner had the same and he agreed it was perfect. It has a lovely atmosphere as they often play live music which creates a really nice chilled out feeling. Looking forward to coming back.

I was recommended this restaurant by a friend who lives in Aberdeen, she did not let me down. The restaurant looks quite quirky, set in an old church. The restaurant was buzzing for a Tuesday night and I would recommend phoning ahead to book a table. The service was really friendly and attentive. Food was delicious, I can highly recommend... More

We had an evening meal here, and while the food was very tasty the portions were too small to justify the price. The tables are very crammed in and it ends up feeling like you're eating with the people at the next table! I would maybe come back here for a quick lunch, but until the meal sizes improve and...

Stopped in for a quiet couple of pints after work with a couple of colleagues. No bar but the staff were quite happy to give up a table and serve us. Not many places serve Brewdog on draught where you can actually hold conversations. Will be back.

We visited Musa yesterday for lunch, it was my boyfriends parents anniversary. Our table of 6 were well looked after and the food was good! Great atmosphere and it was nice having recommended drinks that compliment each meal on the menu. I will definitely be back to try the gin and tonic sorbet! Thanks for a lovely afternoon.

Delicious perfectly cooked food, staggering whiskey selection, live piano in background, friendly/attentive/professional waiting staff. Bustling but no associated long wait. Couldn't recommend highly enough. Can't wait to go back!

We hadn't visited Musa for a while although its been a favourite place of ours for many years, so we were delighted to pick up a voucher for £15 which gave us a main course each and a glass of prosecco. The restaurant was very quiet on the day we chose to dine with only a few tables taken so... More
