The building itself is beautiful and helps create a good, relaxed atmosphere. The menu was small but reasonably creative. We had soup to start, which was rich and the portion size was perfect. My partner had the seafood special which was beautifully presented and I had falafel (in the starter menu, but ordered as a main) both of which were... More

The menu is lovely and has Scottish items on the menu. There are tables downstairs if you don't fancy climbing the stairs to the tables upstairs. The menu is good but they also do a set lunch menu which has interesting items on it.

Great restaurant with fantastic food and drink, especially the beer. Parking can be a bit of a nightmare-best to get a taxi or walk.

Firstly I am very impressed with Musa. We went there for a post graduation meal and the food, service and ambience were first class. The decor matched the food- slightly different but perfect. Because of its location it could be classified as a hidden gem

Went with some a couple friends. Food was really good although a bit pricey, even with the standard/quality. We were approx £170 for three people, and two shared their starter. Oh and the heat upstairs at times was crazy. At one point it felt about 30C, and that was when it wasn't that hot outside. No idea why.

Visited Musa a few months ago and had a lovely meal. I had a delicious salmon dish with asparagus, eggs and hollandaise followed by a really nice warm cake and ice cream. Restaurant is nicely decorated, staff were friendly and can't fault the food, I'm sure I'll be back!

Had a lovely family meal which included a baby. We booked at the last minute and they squeezed us in around the graduation diners. Despite this we had a lot of space, a great table upstairs under the window and great service. The Todd was really good and reasonably priced too.

Saturday lunchtime. Not busy. My first visit to Musa. As a venue....liked it. Different....converted chapel in the middle of Aberdeen. To be fair....food was nice. Decent with gluten intolerance..helpful. Service.....why did not one smile? Why was drinks service so slow? Why did it seem just not quite right? Part of me wants to go back....but I probably won't. Aberdeen isn't... More

Amazing venue and fantastic smart quirky atmosphere. Really beautiful. Food is on the expensive side however you a repaying for amazing ingredients and creative seasonal cooking. Staff are friendly fun and engaging without being intrusive. Really wonderful and a bit different. Took my partner here for a birthday treat and we were spoiled. Cannot bee commend higher.
