4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed today NEW

Was invited out by some Canadian business associates last night and invited to book a restaurant and we chose Musa. No longer living in town, we had been here several times but many years ago and were pleased to see that reviews are still good. Love the arty vibe and the menu is varied and good. Service was good when... More

A group of us enjoyed an excellent meal here. I was attracted by the menu matching the dishes to a beer. This is a great move. They have many fine beers and dishes. Service was very good. We were given plenty of time to choose and a great deal of help from knowledgeable staff. The portions are not enormous, but... More

Went for dinner here, food was good. The chefs put together some interesting combinations, all cooked to a high standard. Meal prices are on the expensive side of the chart, £31 for a steak, cheapest bottle is around £24. Surroundings are pleasant, live music some nights but not when we were there. I was here years ago and loved it;... More

We hired out Musa exclusively for a business dinner while in Aberdeen at a conference. The meal was well organised & we were able to choose from the à la carte menu. I had haggis (a must when in Scotland), which was delicious. They served local beers (Brew dog) as well as other good lagers, e.g. Brooklyn lager. This went... More

We went there for dinner with work colleagues. The food was good and unexpected: I really enjoyed their menu. Cocktails were good too and I appreciated the recommendations for pairing food with dishes. Service was excellent. I am rating 4 out of 5 stars because I believe the prices are a bit high.

Went looking for a cosy place to eat in Aberdeen. Found Musa by random browsing on Tripadvisor and thought it looked nice (was drawn to it by the picture of the round church window...yes, sometimes decisions can be spurred from the weirdest of intuitions). Well, it turns out the pictures were only showing half the truth, because the place was... More

I have heard about Musa for a long time but just never found the time to visit and I am kicking myself now after now having visited the venue for the past two weekends. What an absolute delight! Its is small and very quaint with so many features which just make it feel very special. The staff are very welcoming... More
