About Michael's Grill and Seafood Place - Old Town
Can’t wait to go back.
The food was amazing. The steak was cooked perfectly and the staff were attentive. Will definitely be back.
Lovely restaurant well worth a visit.
We have been to this restaurant 2 or 3 times and the food selection and presentation is excellent. There is always a warm welcome and the service is very attentive. If I was to think of an improvement it would be turn the heating up, no one likes being cold in a restaurant and Michael's grill is not the warmest at lunchtime.
Scottish steaks and seafood in Old Town
The sister restaurant of the New Town branch, Michael’s Grill and Seafood Place serves up steak, seafood and cocktails in a sleek setting. The interior is both chic and simple with a relaxed atmosphere. Expect local, fresh and sustainable Scottish seafood like Shetland mussels and East Lothian crab, alongside quality cuts of steak.
Range of seafood, grill meats and sauces
The seafood menu at Michael’s includes Loch Fyne oysters in a choice of sauces like Scottish vodka bloody mary, or sustainable rope grown Shetland Mussels, again with flavoursome sauces like curried coconut, scallion and cilantro.
Or maybe you will be tempted by the hot shellfish platter, or the half Eyemouth lobster served chilled in crushed ice or grilled in classic thermidor style with buttered samphire.
Over in the grill section, you can take your pick from centre cut fillet, prime rib, middle sirloin and thick cut rump steaks. All are served with beef dripping, hand-cut skin-on chips, a grilled plum tomato and watercress salad. Sauce choices include green peppercorn & brandy, bearnaise and garlic & herb.
On Sundays, you can tuck into a sumptuous roast with all the trimmings.
