Not as nice as it looked

Me and my girlfriend live in town and always walked past saying how nice it looks, and we must give it ago some time. Well it's pay day weekend and decided to give it a go, we phoned and booked as we guessed it would be busy, which it was. We were seated and given the menus and asked if... read more

A great restaurant. Good service a great selection and all the food was excellent. Have been here a number of time and never had a bad experience. On valentine's day the price was reasonable and there was no hurry to get you out. Very nice bottle of Sancerre as well. A great way to celebrate 40 years in a relationship.

We went there with my boyfriend for Valentine's Day this year and it was absolutely exquisite! We didn't expect anything like this. The service was very friendly, we were taken care off as soon as we walked through the door, amazing! The food came very quickly and it was prepared to perfection. Would definitely visit again, it has a very... More

On arrival we were greeted by the owner in his usual friendly matter,we went for a valentines meal. Service was slow and liked to me like they were a staff member... More

We came to Mussi's on our first date and visited numerous times since. A very quaint family run restaurant, perfect for a few drinks or something to eat from the diverse menu. Tonight we've had such a lovely meal and the staff have been fantastic. The friendly owner is always around and the staff look after you well. We recommend... More

Myself and 8 other friends went to mussis on Friday the 6th and the restaurant was empty and stayed empty all evening, maybe because it was the week before valentines. We did have to book and they took a deposit over the phone from us. For starters I had pulled pork Chinese style and it just right for a starter... More

We have eaten at mussis about 5 or 6 times now and every time it has been an absolute pleasure! Food faultless and staff friendly... What more could you ask for?

First time we have ever had dinner in this delightful restaurant right next door to Colchester Castle. Lovely atmosphere from the moment you enter with friendly staff, very attentive and interested. It was especially busy less than two weeks before Xmas and Colchester is always busy on a Saturday night. Quite noisy, with big neighbouring table who seemed to like... More

I suffer from a life threatening food allergy but usually find that reputable restaurants are happy to help so I can stay safe. The staff and manager here were not only rude and dismissive when I asked about ingredients (even though I told them this was for a food allergy) but then they also dropped the ball with the rest...
