Description: Though the name might conjure up images of dancing mussels, Chester’s Moules A Go-Go is a class act. Focusing on modern European-style cuisine, the restaurant is done up in rich, continental-style woods giving it a contemporary yet relaxed feel. Steak frites, fresh fish and rotisserie cooked meats all grace the a la carte menu, but you’d be foolish to miss some of the freshest mussels this side of the ocean. Brought fresh from the Anglesey cost, they’re freshly steamed in one of four ways: classique, mariniere, chorizo or green Thai cury. Friday and Saturday’s also sees the popular grilled lobster meals in, and a surf and turf with a rib eye steak and 1/2 a grilled lobster is a steal at £15.95.

“Good but could be better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We had a meal at Moules for our 30th wedding anniversary last night. Along with a few other reviews we were very happy with the service, the selection and quality of seafood and the deserts (sticky toffee pudding and eton mess) were very good. I had the pork with crackling which was a bit average with the crackling done I believe in a microwave which made it almost inedible. The wine selection was good, particularly the recommended ones, although I thought a little expensive.
All in all it was mostly ok. If I were to go again I would stick with the seafood which is after all what they specialise in.

“Will be back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Found Moules a Go Go by chance on a flying visit to Chester after trawling round the streets looking for somewhere to eat dinner. Lovely menu and friendly, attentive staff who made us feel welcome and at home. Chicken Liver pate was delicious and amongst the mains our party enjoyed the pork belly, seabass, moules seafood risotto and chicken and sweet potato thai curry. All were delicious and agood value for money. Although we didnt really need it we still managed to force a dessert order and omg the Lemon Meringue Eton Mess is to die for!!

“Excellent lunch menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us when we recently visited Chester - what a superb menu! The weather was amazing so we enjoyed lunch outside and went from the lunch menu. Fantastic salads, succulent mussels and tasty squid dishes. The service friendly and attentive. Excellent value for money - with two courses for a set price. Portion sizes were good and the Thai mussels were delicious! Well worth trying especially for a leisurely lunch.

“Nice but limited vegetarian options”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

I have visited this restaurant twice in the past month and have already sampled all of the vegetarian options (2). The leek and saffron risotto I had on my first visit had a nice texture but lacked flavour. The following time I had the vegetarian curry which was nice, full of flavour and the portion size was huge - great value for money. My partner had the rump steak which he said was flavoursome and cooked as ordered and the Anglesey mussels which he won't be ordering again - huge portion size but lacking in taste.

What had us going back the second time was the Staropramen beer which can't be found in many places - delicious! However due to the lack of veggie options we probably won't be returning.
