Lisa and Lauren were on hand to help us with anything we wished for. We were made to feel so welcome. Such a special night. The terrace is brilliant,... More

My fiancé and I have dined at this restaurant 3 times now. The first occasion we shared the chateaubriand and it was absolutely perfectly cooked and the sides were fantastic. The second was for my birthday and unfortunately my steak was burnt out the outside and not cooked enough in the centre however all of the other guests' meals went... More

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to The Restaurant Bar and Grill in Manchester for making our Christmas party (MCC) a really enjoyable one. Christmas is typically a very busy time of year with office parties but we were treated like VIPS, the service was personable, professional and attentive. The food from the a la carte menu... More

Checked in at about 7 bars for cocktails on our cocktail run in Manchester. This was the best we thought. Stylish, great atmosphere, chilled out music from dj, comfy seating, yummy nibbles. staff attentive (and good looking). we could have stayed all night only we had several more cocktail bars to sample!! Highly recommended.

Another visit to my favourite Manchester restaurant, and another great experience. Good to see this place full as well - after all these years. The food was as good as ever - superb French onion soup, and the fish and chips terrific as usual. As usual, though, the piece de resistance was the Maltesers ice-cream. Good service too. My only...

Brilliant location for both drinks and food - had drinks on the terrace first before sampling the fish and chips, which is always a favourite of mine - great evening

Visited with my fiancé on a Friday night. Very busy so glad we made an advance reservation. The terrace was a cool place to be at the start of the night with a couple of drinks and a DJ playing before moving inside. Restaurant ambience was great, views overlooking the busy streets of Manchester with a thoroughly modern feel to... More
