Description: Though the name might conjure up images of dancing mussels, Chester’s Moules A Go-Go is a class act. Focusing on modern European-style cuisine, the restaurant is done up in rich, continental-style woods giving it a contemporary yet relaxed feel. Steak frites, fresh fish and rotisserie cooked meats all grace the a la carte menu, but you’d be foolish to miss some of the freshest mussels this side of the ocean. Brought fresh from the Anglesey cost, they’re freshly steamed in one of four ways: classique, mariniere, chorizo or green Thai cury. Friday and Saturday’s also sees the popular grilled lobster meals in, and a surf and turf with a rib eye steak and 1/2 a grilled lobster is a steal at £15.95.

I have been to Moules a go go a few times, as I was in charge of planning a Hen Weekend and we were attending the races I wanted somewhere a short walk away from the Racecourse. We arrived 30 minutes early for our table but it was ready for us so we were seated early. We were provided with... More

Visited on a tuesday lunch, just after they had reopened. The decor looks clean, tidy and inviting.All the staff were pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. We went off the lunch menu, the ham hock and beetroot salad to start, both were delicious. Then both opted for classique moukes for mains and again both were to die for. The... More

We were back in Chester for the 4th time for our anniversary weekend and we ate here once again for late lunch on Sunday 6 July. As usual we were greeted warmly by the staff and shown to a comfortable seat and table in a cosy corner. My wife is wheat & dairy intolerant so it is always difficult to... More

Having tried this for the first time 2 weeks previously we had no doubt we wanted to take our friends there. We all started with the superb pate - and there was no problem at all in obtaining gluten-free toast for one of our party. We had a good variety of main courses and the seafood pasta was a major...

Visited moules a go go last night after years of very good reviews to be left feeling disappointed. Mussels were over cooked and mushy and the rest of the food was average at best. Service was good but we won't be going back in a hurry.

This is one of those places you seem to forget how good it is until you go back. We opted for one of their themed wine evenings, which have a set menu and 6 glasses of wine for only £24.95. We both went for the chill squid which was perfectly cooked and really delight to eat. We also both went... More

A friend and I visited Moules A Go Go for a snack and had a chocolate fondue to share. The chocolate was melted toblerone with a mixture of fruit, marshmallows and waffles to dip in. It was a lovely treat although overpriced.

We had to wait about 30 minutes for the two main course meals. Ordered sea bass fillets with cabbage and new potatoes, not bad value @ £14-95 but there was no mention on the menu of the thick black pepper crust. Not everyone likes that much black pepper and it should be mentioned before you order so that you have... More

Mussels are a favourite of mine but at Moules they set the benchmark. Absolutely FANTASTIC. And for those that want a steak that is certainly not an issue. Great atmosphere with attentive service
