Moules A Go Go

As the name suggests, Moules a go-go is famous for its mussels, fresh from the shores of Anglesey, served in a variety of ways from simple Moules Marinieres to Korean. The vast selection of seafood dishes ranging from traditional fish and chips to scrumptious Sea Bass is impressive, though equally appealing are the locally sourced juicy steaks . After 17 successful years in business amongst tough competition, Moules a go-go is still going strong, boasting superb food and a great atmosphere in contemporary yet comfortable surroundings. The head chef and manager have been there since the restaurant’s inception; such longevity is a rare blessing in the tempestuous world of the steaming kitchen, but this dedication shows in the consistency and quality of the food and service. Moules a go-go is a real find in the heart of Chester's history.

                                                      I had a bad experience last time but always loved Moules so thought I’d give another go . Had the mussels and I’ll be honest they where shocking have better from Aldi ! The shells were brittle hence ended up eating shell with the broth and they were tiny and tasteless !!! This will be my last time , seems as they specialize in Mussels , Moules a go go you really do need to sort it out . I also ordered an Oyster and wasn’t till I got home I realized I never got it .

                                                      very poor waiter service due to not being asked if wanted any more drinks and asked how the food was , no tip was left , will not be returning unless things improve

                                                      We had a lovely meal here. The service was excellent, the food delicious and the atmosphere relaxed. My mother is coeliac and we were very impressed by our server's knowledge of which items on the menu were gluten free. We had the Wine on Wednesdays offer which was incredible value for money - two courses and a bottle of wine per person for£22.95 if I remember correctly. The choice of meals on the offer was very good too. My husband said his sea bass was the best he'd ever had, and I can highly recommend the baked oysters starter. We will definitely be coming back!

                                                      Excellent food, from set price menu. Considering they don’t specialise in curry, the Sri Lankan curry was one of the best I’ve tasted in a restaurant. Wife really liked her steak, Chilled out atmosphere, not too pretentious. Staff very attentive. A very enjoyable experience all round. Will be returning some time soon.

                                                      We booked and didn’t realise it was race day. However the food was excellent the service a bit slow, but then the restaurant was crowded and a bit noisy. Wouldn’t hesitate to go again. I had the duck, delicious, my partner had the mussels, he enjoyed them so much he hardly spoke. Lovely experience. Thanks

                                                      The food was exceptional quality and the portions large. We ate fresh oysters (delicious!) with a glass of Prosecco (even the raspberry intercross was ripe abs tasty!), the followed with the pate and squid to start and classic mussels and sea bass as mains and all were superb. The bread with the mussels would have been better rustic or sourdough, as the white French bread went rather mushy in the jus of the mussels, the pudding was a little small (apricot and almond cake) and the wine (which we had by the glass) should have been properly chilled, but those were minor quibbles. The staff we really friendly and efficient and it had a lovely bistro feel and overall we would highly recommend! Thank you to the chef and staff!

The manager or at least he looked like it tall guy was very rude to his staff we didn’t like that and it was clear to see!! The staff were fantastic didn’t need his negativity! That aside starters were fab and we had a great night

                                                      Really enjoyed my Moules with blue cheese in the sauce. My wife does not like mussels but found plenty of choice on the menu. Service very attentive. Food exactly as on the menu. Recommend but was busy on the Wednesday we visit so might be worth booking.

                                                      A return to Moules after over two years - great mussels again (and other items) enjoyed by our party of six.
