The dramatically glamorous surroundings of Opus One are a sharp riposte to the Italianate façade of the Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester in which it is situated. An extravaganza of red chandeliers, glossy black woodwork and antique gold wall hangings give this striking central Manchester restaurant a bold, vibrant ambience. Cuisine is fittingly modern British, with locally sourced produce dressed up in excitingly eclectic flavours.

Relaxing afternoon tea

Had been bought gift vouchers for afternoon tea . Finally got round to redeeming them. What an absolute treat. All four of us had the Gentlemans tea, food very good with plenty of coffee.

The explaination of the menu was great, and most importantly not patronising. Pamela was our main server and she was attentive and polite, even taking away one of... More

Not keen on the menu. Unable to find anything suitable to eat hence we did not eat the food. Very pricey for what was listed on menu. Staff were good. Inside restaurant reasonable but unimpressive in contrast to their menu prices.

Enjoyed the friendly service and vibe in the bar for a few pre-dinner drinks. Good variety of drinks and cocktails. Nice way to start the evening.
