Lovely

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... read 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

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... 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
