An enjoyable lunchtime spent at Mussi's... The food was really nice a very good selection for a lunchtime bite. We ate in the bar side,and this had atmosphere. Also chatting with the owner made it very welcoming. With a glass or two of wine, this was a great pre christmas bite with friends. My seafood platter was amazing. Thank you

We booked a table at this lovely little hidden restaurant by chance and we were not disappointed. Despite getting caught in traffic and being late, the staff were incredibly courteous and welcoming - assuring us that it was fine. The speed of service was excellent, without being hurried. The quality of the food was truly beautiful and the pricing incredibly... More

Seven of us met for lunch here and we were all very impressed. The restaurant is very pleasant with well spaced out tables and comfortable chairs. The staff were knowledgeable and pleasant and the food was of a very high standard and obviously all freshly cooked. My cheesecake dessert was one of the best I've had. The mini shortbreads served...

We hadn't eaten here for a while as there are now so many good restaurants to choose from in Colchester Mussi's had slipped off our radar. That won't be happening again as the food was just lovely. I had the scallops followed by the chilli crab linguine which were both really good and my husband had the seafood plate followed... More

Neither me or the missus had ever heard or seen this restaurant before but looked at the menu & took a chance. Very happy we did as it was lovely. The prices were reasonable & the food extremely tasty. We can not say what dinner is like but lunch is definitely worth having here. On our next trip to Colchester... More

On entering you are immediately aware that the restaurant area is not only tastefully fitted out but the chairs are comfortable too. There is a smaller bar and light meals section. I had sea bass which was excellent. There is a good selection of wines. A few weeks later I popped in for a quick lunch and was pleased to... More
