We had a great meal @ the Portland street restaurant. It was our 10th Anniversary. Really good atmosphere. Prices were very reasonable. Staff were very attentive (especially Marcus the restaurant manager). Will definitely return to the Portland in the coming weeks. Thanks for making it a memorable evening....

The team that work there are most pleasant and helpful,... More

Brilliant, a must for anyone visiting Manchester and a welcoming treat for the weary shoppers. Treated my in-laws today and they just could not praise it enough.
