Description: 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.

On entering the bar area we stood for a few moments confused as to where to go, with no direction from the chap behind the bar or the woman who seemed to be organising the decor...however once we were shown to our table everything was amazing.

My friend and I went to Opus One for Sunday lunch. First we were shown to the Afternoon Tea area which was very pleasant but then had to move to the rather dark restaurant as we were having lunch. The lunch menu was extremely limited and the "Steak and Lobster" restaurant was closed. The service was fairly efficient but the... More

It was a double celebration, birthday and our anniversary. We arrived half hour early so had a drink in the bar area first then was shown to our table, we did ask... More

Had a few cocktails before heading out to a party. They were really nice and averagely priced for a city centre bar. The staff were friendly and always around to top up when needed. There was a nice chilled out atmosphere.

Had a 'classic' and 'gentleman's afternoon tea.' Staff were very friendly and attentive. Food was excellent. We asked for second helping of scones and they were hot out of the oven. Would highly recommend.

Went as a treat from my friend as this was the start of my hen weekend. The venue is lovely & especially enjoyed people watching in between chatting.
