I cannot recommend this place enough. I have been a number of times over the years and maybe the reason it stood out as we ate on a Monday but what a meal from start to end every course was memorable. They have definitely upped there game and it was one of the best meals I have had in quite... More

Atmosphere is very good! Very comfy, clean and the food is amazing! Very very expensive though, some staff also think are something special, not all but some. Would recommend!

We dined here on a Wednesday night in February. Not overly busy so atmosphere was at a minimal. Visually beautiful and the option to sit out on the terrace perhaps better for summer. Food was very good. Staff were lovely, bit over attentive but I think it was possibly due to such little numbers. Prices were very fair for the... More

We enjoyed a fab party on the first floor outside area. Lovely ' finger' food , including beautiful beef skewers , mini sliders , tempura prawns . Attentive professional staff . Even the heavy Manchester rain didn't spoil the party.

Being told to order more drinks while they set the table... Asked a few times why we hadn't been seated receptionist unbelievably said 'there's not much I can do' - no apologies. When... More

This is a busy bar and restaurant in the centre of Manchester off Deansgate. Arrival felt a little disorganised before we were seated in the bar. It is difficult to accommodate groups of more than four in the downstairs bar where music was noisy. The upstairs restaurant serves a wide ranging menu. I had duck salad followed by steak. The...

I had the USDA sirloin, melt in the mouth up there with the hawksmoor and gaucho Service was impeccable, kids weren't too keen on the ribs a little piquant for them (age 5). Fries were nice and not greasy Overall enjoyable family meal in a lovely setting with great staff highly recommend

Visited here on a quiet Tuesday night. Didn't get off to the best start when the bar man shouted over that it's bar service only. We took a seat and had a look through the menu. Just about to get up to go to the bar and a different guy came over to get our order.? It went down hill... More
