Where to Eat Mussels in London

22 October 2019 | Katie Da Cunha Lewin

The best time for mussels is any month with an ‘r’ at the end. Here are the best places to go for a seafood feast.

Spotlight On: Le Garrick
This rather sophistiqué restaurant in Covent Garden should be anyone's first choice when craving a bivalve blowout. Serving a mixture of French classics and traditional dishes with a twist, Le Garrick is perfect for a special occasion or a fancier-than-usual pre-theatre dinner, offering classy French dining in central London. Choose from moules frites or mariniere, and pair it with delicious white wine chosen by an experienced sommelier. They offer both a pre- and post-theatre dinner menu which includes moules frites for just £16.95 for 3 courses, so if you prefer getting a play in before you eat you won't be disappointed.
 
Belgo
What? Well-loved Belgian chain which started in Chalk Farm in 1992
Where? Across London, in Soho, Central, Holborn and Kings Cross.
Why? Belgo specialises in moules frites and  - choose from moules in the traditional way, or go for something a bit different, served in a Spanish or Italian style, or even with kimichi!
 
The Dove
What? East London pub serving beers from around the world and a mixture of British Belgian and Thai food
Where? Broadway Market
Why? They serve an amazing moules mariniere with bread and chips, as well as a range of veggie options for any pals who aren’t keen on going down the mussel route
 
Mon Plaisir
What? The oldest French restaurant in London, first opened in the 1940s
Where? Covent Garden
Why? You can either have moules mariniere for a starter, or with chips for a main course – either way, it’s sure to be absolute delicious
 
Auberge
What? A relaxed dining experience perfect for after work dinner and drinks
Where? Waterloo
Why? Serving mussels in three ways, mariniere, provencale and Thai-inspired, take your pick of accompaniments, including crab tartare or snails if you are feeling brave
