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.

Definitely worth a visit.

Was told about a restaurant in Chester which was worth going to by a fellow hotel guest but she could not remember the name or give specific details of where the restaurant was. More by luck than judgement we found it and enjoyed a very pleasant evening there. Mussels were excellent, service was... read more

Absolutely awesome place! Food was lovely, but the staff were fantastic! We went as a family of 3 with our 16month old little girl and she could not have been made more welcome! Crayons were brought straightaway and they even put our daughters favourite song on when they heard us talking about it. Moules were delish and the waffles were... More

The title says it all, great place to go! Even better value if you have a taste card. I've had mussels twice (2 different sauces on different nights) that were fantastic and steak on another night....again delicious. The service was quick and the staff are lovely. Very welcoming and nothing is too much hassle. Would definitely recommend a visit.

I visited here during Christmas 2014. There were no muscles on the menu due to delivery issues over the festive period. Fine but we were not warned until arrival. The staff were apologetic and I am not the sort of customer to kick up a fuss. So we didn't/ couldn't have mussels, which, looking through other reviews, could of been... More

After a lovely day wandering around Chester with my wife we jumped into Moules a go go - it was an inspired choice. Early evening but still busy. Nice laid back, relaxed atmosphere with very friendly and attentive staff - it's hard not to enjoy a few hours here. Food was fantastic, tasty and plentiful. No need to look any... More

As we stayed in Chester on a mini break last night we were keen to book somewhere to eat so after perusing this site and also because this restaurant accept "taste card" we decided to give it a try. We were definitely not disappointed! The location is super, the place is beautifully decorated and the food was fantastic. I opted... More

My wife and I visited on Valentines Day and had a great meal. There was none of the usual Valentines day hype with advance booking charges etc. We have visited Moules many times for lunch but this was our first evening meal in the ten years I have lived in Chester. The food and service was of a high standard... More

Took my wife on valentine day. The place was fantastic. Staff were friendly and helpful. And the food and wine were first class. Very happy with my visit, and I will be back.

I had a fantastic meal here on New Year's Eve, so visited again lunchtime, Saturday 7th February. We ordered the 1/2 kilo pots of mussels from the set menu, this is just the right portion size for lunch and at a reasonable price, (£6.95) The food is always lovely, I always enjoy the mussels and am working my way through...
