We were here on one of the hottest days of the year so far and the air conditioning was very welcome. As a party we all had different meals and all enjoyable except for the burger which apparently had a strange taste. The decor of the restaurant was pleasing and the service was excellent.

Visited on a Saturday night and by the end of the night restaurant was full and so a good buzz about the place. Recommend pre booking. Clean modern interior, very classy and excellent service. Food was yummy and I always like menus that offer something a bit different. Barman made me a cocktail that wasn't on the menu, nothing was... More

Ideal venue for lunch when in town, with friendly service. Either sit outside on the patio, or inside with the big windows to watch the world passing by on way to the town centre or into the park.

Once again great food friendly service ,we went for Sunday roast just after th or opening time and found they had none left which we found rather odd guess it was all booked out to dinners who arrived after us so slightly disappointed ,although the meals of the main menu were very nice ...Will certainly try that elusive Sunday roast...

I arrived with my two daughters and two baby grandchildren. We asked for a quiet place to sit so that the babies could be fed , not the bar that was busy and had music playing. The response from 'the Manager - or owner was so negative and rude. He clearly does not deserve to have customers. We went to... More

The owner/manager is seriously lacking in people skills. Almost ate here, spoke to the manager and decided not to bother. Have been previously and the food is usually good but the service is not. There are plenty of other places I'd rather spend my money.

We visited Colchester for the first time and decided to eat here. When we first received the menu we thought mmmm pricey. We ate of the lunch deal and we were pleasently surprised. The food was amazing! Service was brill and accommodated our baby. Toilets were very clean which lead to a nice environment to change and feed our baby.... More

As we were leaving Castle Park today, we were tempted into Mussi's by the 2 and 3 course set lunch menus...until I saw they had dressed Cromer crab on the specials board! This was a delicious and perfect summery lunch for me, along with salad and a glass of Chenin Blanc. Hubby, who kept to the 3 course set menu,... More

You can choose to eat alfresco, (&smoke), also a silver service restaurant with an excellent selection of meat and seafood dishes. The service is unhurried, but you ca also pop in for drinks only, if you wish. Would heartily recommend it. On the way to the Castle.
