We have eaten here in the brasserie on a number of occasions, but on this occasion we just called in to the cafe for a coffee break after a hard mornings shopping. We had a perfectly ordinary cup of coffee and a green tea which cost £6.00. In addition a service charge of 60p was added, and we have to... More

Had a champagne afternoon tea with my best friend and loved it. Lots of little treats attractively presented and served in style whilst enjoying the view of the Manchester skyline .

I went here to have a drink on a Saturday evening. The atmosphere was nice with a lady playing on the piano. She was excellent and really added to the atmosphere. I found the service too slow though and the food is pricey. But I do like visiting here so I will probably come again

We visited here on our ladies' day out for a drink and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the white hot chocolate which was very nice. Though we did not eat, the food that other customers were eating looked very appetising. I would happily return.

The afternoon tea here is gorgeous and you get plenty of cakes and sandwiches. I came here for my birthday with family and we all loved it. The staff were very friendly and made the day feel special with a birthday treat! There was so much food we couldn't eat it all and the staff kindly offered to box the... More

Exhausted from our shopping spree in the city, I took my younger daughter for a post birthday glass of champagne mid-afternoon on Thursday, 13th April. We were seated overlooking the city and were asked if it was a special occasion. When I said that it had been my daughter's birthday just 2 days before, she was surprised a few minutes... More

Very pleasant little bar, with great views of Manchester City Centre. Get ready for the bill though, it isn't cheap!

Had a lovely lunch with my husband here on my birthday. The weather was fantastic and so was the service. They even gave me a birthday surprise. Will definitely go back.

The 4 of us ate here before going on to the MEN Arena, I must admit it has been a while since we last ate here and they had changed the layout, it is now all a Brasserie, before it was a restaurant & Brasserie, the reception was professional and the waiting on staff were friendly and attentive, 3 had...
