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.

Stopped for lunch while visiting the beautiful city of Chester. This restaurant is on the first floor of the tiered shops in Chester so probability problems. Very old building but modern interior well thought out and executed. We had half a kilo of mussels each with a choice of five cooking methods followed by the hot and cold fish sharing... More

Great Staff offering a really attentive service! Charming & friendly, & well-informed about local events in Chester. Family friendly for sure! We booked for lunch & overall, our food was fine. My reservations are that our Steak was a little undercooked, and we had our Moules re-cooked because the onion was too raw / crunchy. But the Chef turned them... More

I had dinner here last night with my partner. The decor is lovely. The girl with blonde hair serving us was very polite. I had the crab and avocado to start. The crab was beautiful full of flavour. I then had the half kilo of muscles with blue cheese sauce, these muscles where the best I have ever had. We... More

My husband and I have been using Moules since it opened, sometimes quite infrequently as we spend a lot of time out of the UK, due to his job, yet we are always greeted like old friends, I can't say we've had a " bad " meal here, some are better than others, but that's acceptable I think over ten...

When I found this restaurant on the internet I was quite excited and booked a table for Saturday night. We were shown to a table right at the back but understand that sometimes when there are only two people this happens - the management obviously recognised this as she gave us a glass of fizz on the house. We both... More

I reviewed this restaurant a year ago and after a recent visit it is still excellent.Just wanted to highlight that a new "Goan" mussels choice has been added to the menu. Loving both curry and mussels in equal order I went for this one.It was very good with just the right amount of heat.My wife had the Anglesey muscles with... More

We visited the restaurant early on a Monday night where they do a fantastic value 2 for 1 offer on all Mussels. We had a starter of dips which wasn't great but then we both had the Mussels for our main course which were as good as any we have had anywhere else, very nice! Service was excellent the only...

Went on a quiet afternoon after a spot of shopping and from the get go felt unwelcome. We were seated in the corner of the restaurant out of the way of everything near the door. Food was average and staff seemed like they wanted to be elsewhere.
