I've eaten here a few times and the food is always good and reasonably priced for central Manchester. Good location and the outside dining area adds an extra dimension.

Visited evening before Manchester marathon. My partner is gluten intolerant and we asked a waiter if any of the food could be made to exclude gluten, or if any dishes already did. The answer was just "no". A little more assistance could've been given here. We were still charged full price for a dish that had several ingredients missing. Food... More

A group of ten of us dined here for a work celebration. None of us had been before though it had been highly recommended, and we were all delighted with the service and the food on offer. Without exception everyone agreed that they would definitely return with family and friends.

My daughter and I visited for lunch after a visit to the Hilton Spa on Deansgate. We were welcomed and seated and our waiter was attentive. Food was freshly prepared and tasty and the red wine served delicious. We took advantage of the lunch time offer of one course and a drink for £9.99 We would go again!

I don't understand the people slagging off the service here. I read a lot of reviews before booking, as a result i had low expectations for service, but it was good, very good even. The staff were all friendly and smiling, very helpful and informative with food/drink suggestions, and very prompt. The food itself was a very pleasant surprise, the... More

Booked a table for 8.15 on Good Friday - taxi was late to pick up so knew we would be a few minutes late. Tried calling the restaurant for 15 mins intermittently from 7.55 to 8.10 and was constantly engaged. Got there just before 8.20 (barely 5 minutes late). Waitress exclaimed "You're late!" Top prize awarded for her observation skills.... More

I've been here so many times and it's so good every single time. The staff are great and the food is amazing. I always get the risotto which is better than anywhere else - not overly peppery which seems to be the problem at similar restaurants. I definitely recommend the prosecco!!

My wife and I called in here for a drink which turned into an early dinner. The place was cozy and the staff welcoming, so we looked at the menu and decided to eat early and cancel our other plans. My wife had the salmon pasta and I had the 8 hour slow cooked wild boar pasta which was delicious.... More

We went for a late lunch (approximately 3.30pm) on Saturday and it was surprisingly busy at this time. A mix of couples, groups and families were in there. We had an excellent bottle of red wine (Chianti Classico). We both had fish dishes for mains which were really nice, perfectly cooked with crispy skin. These weren't particularly cheap, but felt...
