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.

My wife and I ate at Moules A Go Go for my birthday a couple of weeks ago...calamari/ prawn and potted crab starters, then a burger and, of course, mussels for mains. All delicious, particularly the potted crab. Negatives? The calamari was marginally overcooked/ chewy and the mussels could have been cleaned a little better (occasional bits of grit), but... More

I've eaten here a few times and while it has been of passable quality the venue can't seem to shake the cafe feel, even of an evening. The menu is a little confusing, it's wide ranging and aside from the mussels it feels like a jack of all trades, master of none.

We booked a table here for when we had finished a day at the races. The restaurant was a short walk away from there and they had a race day menu available. There was a good variety of food to chose. Even though the restaurant was packed out, staff were very polite and friendly and there was plenty of them.... More

Every time I come to Chester I make a point of eating here. The menu has a great selection and is great value for money. I've been here with a large group too and they had no problem handling the group and all the food came out lovely and hot and on time!

The food was amazing and the service was good but there wasn't much of an atmosphere. Would return again.

Went on a busy Friday evening. Nice setting, pleasant staff. Had the fish platter starter, there was enough of it but was quite greasy and as we were sat near to the open kitchen there was a distinctive smell of cooking oil that was a bit off putting. The main courses were excellent, I had belly pork and my wife... More

Lovely staff, nice modern contemporary surroundings, however I was so looking forward to a tasty pan of mussels, but I think the chef and who ever sourced the mussels was having an off day, I decided to have them 'classico', with bread, thought to myself you can't go wrong there, I was wrong they were the smallest muscles on the...

An easy to find and easy to enjoy restaurant doing principally Moules (Mussels) but other fish and some of the best steaks we have had in a long time. The ambience is light but friendly and having a joke with the serving staff is a nice way to break the ice.

Visited this restaurant this week. We had opted for an early lunch, 12.30, and we're not surprised, therefore, that it was very quiet. On arrival we were shown straight to our table. A very pleasant waitress took our drinks order which arrived very promptly, and she also brought iced water, which was much appreciated, as it was a very hot... More
