65 Rose St., Edinburgh, Scotland EH2 2NH, United Kingdom

Despite an unassuming exterior, the Mussel Inn restaurant draws crowds with its menu of fresh seafood imported from the western coast of Scotland. The light-filled dining room is simply decorated with hardwood floors, butcher-block tables, and colorful fish mosaics, while the outdoor patio provides great people-watching on Rose Street when the weather is pleasant. Although chalkboard menus advertise daily specials, the go-to dish here is the kilo (or half kilo) pot of mussels served in a variety of sauces, from the traditional white wine, garlic, and shallots, to more unusual options like the Moroccan (chilies, garlic, ginger, coriander, and cumin).
