The hotel we stayed at recommended and booked this restaurant for us. Fantastic restaurant, one of the best fish restaurants I have been to for a long time. Staff were amazing, helpful and attentive but not intrusive. Very affordable for the quality of food which was delicious.

I can't speak highly enough of this little gem. From the friendliness of all the staff to the consistency of great food at an affordable price.

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).
