Great offers available on a Monday which is 50% off the food bill, shame this doesn't apply to drinks to. Food was really good with quick service, no check back though but it was busy with few staff on. Location is good and the restaurant is clean etc. Worth a visit.

I went for my friends birthday, and can honesty say I had a lovely evening! The place was clean and inviting, we had choice of seating and the waitress was so lovely! She must of gone home with a sore jaw as she never stopped smiling! I'm a very fussy eater so I was unsure what to go for on... More

Our waiter Carlos was brilliant. Nothing too much trouble even when friends arrived at different times throughout the evening, he was welcoming and friendly towards our group. Even when his shift had ended, he noticed our second round of drinks hadn't been served so he went to get them for us before leaving! Wish all waiters were as attentive and... More

Beautiful interior decoration. Food served was average. Portion size were small despite its price. Service was not that well too.

Staff were terrible. Ordered food and drinks and the drinks (2 pints, nice and easy) took 15 minutes to arrive. Had to ask 3 different members of staff where they were and it was only after threatening to leave that we got them. Food was bog standard, luckily it was the 50% Monday offer, if it was full price I... More

I visited here with my partner after reading the menu outside. I found the food to be very tasty, the staff very friendly and a delightful ambience inside, even whilst busy. The food was reasonably priced, they had a good wine selection and the cocktails were 2-4-1! I would definitely return to this restaurant when I am next in Manchester.

The restaurant is located directly across Manchester Cathedral. Very happy that it is open all day as I had quite a late lunch. Obviously one should not expect upper gastronomy here. But my lunch tasted quite good. Garlic bread as starter did the job properly: crispy and served warm enough. As main course the funny-named Haka burger with 9oz beef,... More

I went here with my mum and we sat outside with the sun beaming down on us. It was a lovely spot to catch the sun. We had two bottles of Prosecco and it is very well priced for a deliciously crisp bottle. The pulled pork nachos were delicious - the best nachos we've had and we've had some good... More
