I have been a scampi lover since childhood but these were fresh, juicy and crisp; I can't see them being beaten any time soon. The mussels were great, plump, fresh and the sauces were well balanced. Service was great, fast, friendly and unobtrusive. Would go...More

Very modern and very delicious. A wide variety of fish dishes, but really it's all about the mussels! Everything is served piping hot, as it should be.

Great place for fresh Italian style seafood. We had the Hot Seafood Platter. Really good dish with King and queen scallops, tiger prawns and mussels, poached in tasty seafood sauce topped with grilled sea bass fillet and crème fraiche. The white wine also good. Recommended.

I'm a regular here, probably 4 or 5 times a year, unusually for me I pretty much have the same selection every time, the chowder and the Moroccan mussels. As I said I'm not normally one for repeating the same orders but I can't resist...More

My oysters had been thoroughly washed in fresh water. There was no fishy taste or smell. I put salt on them which helped but they were still tasteless. The owner did credit them back on my bill telling me that’s how they arrive. The seafood...More

I like that other people have answered this question, just to say "i don't know". How brilliantly pointless. To answer your question, I also have no idea.

They had plenty of options that were gluten free. Many seafood options with veggies & potatoes and buckets of mussels.

The Mussel Inn is one of Glasgow’s première restaurants. Despite the name, our restaurant offers a much wider variety of food than just Scottish West Coast mussels served with our unique and delicious range of sauces. Our seafood dishes also include Creamy Seafood Chowder, Grilled King Scallops and Queen Scallops, Scottish oysters, and our amazing seafood platter (Mini Seafood Platter also available).
