Had a birthday lunch here today and the food was fantastic as was the service! As it always it. Beautiful sitting outside in the sun with good company and fantastic food. Highly recommend Mussi's for a breakfast, a lunch or a dinner.

Came here for breakfast for the price it's not worth it stumbled across this place by chance the breakfast was ok but wouldn't come back and have it again. Will Be back for other food. The breakfast wasn't to my taste but don't let it ruin it. Staff are lovely

We really enjoyed our evening and meal at this restaurant celebrating my daughters graduation. The tables are arranged spaciously and the dining room is uncluttered, very clean and relaxed. The menu is small, however, with the additional specials menu, we found it tricky to make a choice as there were so many things we liked! I can highly recommend the... More

We had the £27 three course menu. Food tasted good but portions were on the small side so I think it's poor value. The same menu is cheaper during the week.

Our favourite place for a weekend breakfast in Colchester. The courtyard is great for people watching on a sunny day otherwise we sit in the bar area. Great friendly service with a delicious breakfast served in just the right portion size to leave you satisfied but not bloated.
