Spacious city centre seafood spot serving mussels by the kilo and fresh fish from an open kitchen.
A capacious space opens up as you enter Mussel Inn, with seating on two floors and an open kitchen. The chefs don’t overcomplicate things too much, but give nods to various culinary styles across the menu. Kick things off with a delicious bowl of Cullen skink with smoked haddock and salmon. Or try a less traditional but just as good starter of calamari à la plancha, with Cajun spice and basil oil. For mains you can choose from the likes of tiger prawns, scallops, shellfish pasta or sea bass. If you can’t make up your mind, the hot seafood platter comes with all of the above, swimming in a rich lobster bisque. As you’d expect, much is made of the West Coast mussels which come by the full kilo or half. There are four cooking options, but you can’t beat the classic — white wine, garlic, shallots and cream. If you’re still hungry, the baked chocolate mousse with hazelnut biscuits, chocolate sauce and cream cheese makes for a sweet finish.
