Came here with clients for dinner after a recommendation, have been meaning to try for months in all honesty just never got round to it. Service was impeccable, food outstanding. A wonderful dining experience which I cannot wait to try again. My clients were impressed too, which helps. Already booked my next visit in the diary.

After the initial confusion of trying to find the door from street level, we were greeted by a friendly face and shown to the bar area to grab a cocktail before dinner. The restaurant was quiet and the ambience was perfect for a mid week dinner with friends. The design of the restaurant is lovely. Our waiter was very attentive,... More

Fantastic restaurant, great great food! Service also very nice, crew was very kind suggesting properly. It's an incredible experience! To be done if around Man. The only problem is the long waiting list to book a table during the weekend, but during the week is easier. Make an aperitif at the Pacific bar before.

Spent a couple of days in Manchester for my birthday and went to Australasia for a late lunch. Just like the last time i visited, it didn't fail to impress. My partner had never been before and thoroughly loved it as did i. The atmosphere, food and service were fantastic. We also went for a drink afterwards in Grand Pacific... More

I cannot recommend this very special eating experience more highly. I took my family for dinner to celebrate our Daughters 1st class honours, we all enjoyed a wonderful meal. Surroundings, staff everything was perfect. Thank you all for a meal and event that we will all remember for a very long time.

We booked this restaurant to celebrate our son's graduation. It has an interesting setting, but the acoustics are not great as the general background noise of people talking was really loud. It is an experience and a good place to celebrate something, but a little over-priced for what you get.

Absolutely one of the best meals I have had in a very long time. We had a selection of sushi and sashimi and it was devine. We had tempura which was light and so fresh. The soufflé was to die for as a dessert. The cocktails were absolutely delicious. I just could not fault this restaurant. It was pricey but... More

I have eaten here many times, and it never fails to amaze. Such a varied menu, something for every palate. Very good atmosphere, and the service is always spot on. Thanks!
