About Mharsanta Restaurant & Bar
Will definitely be back
Lovely restaurant, staff attentive & food was delicious. Will definitely be back
Would definitely recommend
We booked through 5pm but the choices are from their lunch menu at same cost. Good selection on all 3 courses.
Some great home favourites 😊
Our group started with Chicken goujons, haggis scotch egg & goats cheese bonbons.. delicious!
We then had mince & potatoes, fish n Chips and the halloumi salad.
All were generous portions and not a lot left on the plate.
To finish we had Gorgeous Scottish flavoured ice creams- tablet and honeycomb crunch.
Drinks were reasonably priced.
Service was good despite only one server on duty. We were there for a catch up with friends and we enjoyed the non intrusive service.
Well done Mharsanta..we will be back 😊
Scottish cuisine in the Merchant City
Mharsanta is a newly launched restaurant & bar on Bell Street in the Merchant City. Named after the Gaelic for ‘merchant’, it serves classic comfort dishes alongside Scottish seafood and signature cocktails. Inside, you will find a smart minimalist space with windows prettily lit up at night by fairy lights. Mharsanta is a great spot for a relaxed lunch or to dine in the evening before heading to a concert or nearby bar.
Classic dishes and cocktails
Much of Mharsanta’s menu has a Scottish comfort food feel to it. Menus can change, but expect choices like the steak, egg and chips or the fish ‘n’ chips made with haddock landed at Peterhead.
There are also mince and tatties, a beef and sausage pie plus a range of dry-aged Scottish steaks. Local produce is also prominent in dishes such as the Ayrshire pork belly and the burger topped with Ayrshire bacon & Mull cheddar.
Seafood options might include Isle of Barra langoustines, Shetland mussels, a Cullen skink pie and hand-dived king scallops. Veggie dishes include a battered halloumi burger and wild mushrooms on toasted soda bread. As well as this you can tuck into a range of sandwiches, such as the slow-cooked pork on a crusty bloomer. A children’s menu is also available.
You can also try out the extensive cocktail menu, including Mharsanta signature drinks like the Buffalo Soldier.
