Lovely lunch near Castle

We went in for a light bite having visited the the Castle. It was not warm enough to sit outside but there are two sections inside, one for the restaurant and one for sandwiches etc. Very good choice of light meals/sandwiches and good choice of drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic.

I went with my parents as was visiting Colchester. And we had been before but not in a while and remembered it as good. Every course was either bland or poor. I complained about my lobster and barely got an acknowledgment to the fact it was dry and rubbery. Every seafood dish was very overcooked the only dish they got... More

First time i have eaten here and it was lovely. I had the lobster Linguine which was just perfect. My only criticism would be - when we went out in to the patio area out the back we were watched not once but 3 times to see if we had done a runner, this i found insulting and suggest they... More

We eat at Mussis and always have a fantastic experience. The Owners, staff, Food and venue are great for either a meal for 2 or family/group get together. The choice of menu is always exciting and they use local produce which is what we want.

Popped in here for lunch with a friend and was very impressed. The service was very good, waitresses were attentive but not pushy, the food was lovely and there was plenty of food envy with other customers which is always a good sign for me. It wasn't particularly busy which was actually rather nice. I shall definitely be coming back... More

We had a bowl of Malsysian curry each - excellent flavours but far too small for the price, it felt a little bit mean.

Two birthdays & a wedding anniversary all wrapped up in a great venue, ordered from the party menu as we were a party of 10. Nice selection on the menu, however I felt some of the dishes did not live up to there expectations. Service seemed a little slow, but the atmosphere was good and the restaurant was buzzing. Would...

We've had some lovely meals here in the past, including our works Christmas meal a year or so ago. We were always really impressed with everything. However, our most recent visit was disappointing. My food was great, slow cooked pork belly, but my partner's thai style chicken was ... basic. Some chicken, some rice, some pa choi, in a very... More
