THIS IS THE SAME AS RGB - READ REVIEWS THERE ALSO. The RBG has a good reputation having been recommended by three of our party of ten. Occupying the entire building, the main restaurant is on the first two floors. However they have a private room which is discretely hidden and only accessible through special doors, past the strongly smelling... More

Had great food. Sat outside. That was fine until it stopped raining and the sun came out, at which point the staff removed the canopy and neither we nor the other couples dining could actually see because of the glare. When we all asked for the canopy to be replaced we were told that they couldn't because the management had... More

Was recommended here on a business trip having had some great meals out in Manchester. The fancy suspended staircase was weird, and the location outside on the balcony good, but wasn't the most comfortable way of eating in big cushions which sink. The walkway past the tables is busy with glamourous waiting staff, but it felt very clinical - the... More

I've not been here for a while but when I last visited on a Friday lunch time it was lively and the atmosphere was great so a booking on the terrace on a rare sunny Manchester afternoon, 11th July, seemed like a great idea. Fortunately due to the company I was with it was but how poor is it for... More

Visited 24 June for lunch, party of three. Seated on outside terrace with low table which had sofas not chairs, bit too low to be honest. Service swift and pretty good, only slight concern was when I ordered haddock risotto for main and was told they didn't do that dish. I then pointed it out on the menu - end... More

Enjoyed a friday night on the terrace with work colleagues. I still find this restaurant a great venue with a great buzz. I agree with others that it does need that facelift. For a friday night downstairs was very quiet and whilst the terrace was full the upstairs restaurant was 50% full. Still a great place to meet mates and... More

Came here with 14 others for a business lunch an found the service and the food to be excellent. I had grilled asparagus to start and flattened chicken for my main and I couldn't fault it. All of the group commented on how good it was and all plates cleaned off and that is a good sign! I have been... More

Visited on 21st June 2014 as part of my wife's birthday celebrations. On arrival table was slightly late being ready, but that was sorted with a drink at the bar. Very polite waiting staff sat us out on the terrace. We were in a party of 4, starters chosen were thai fish cakes and the potted beef and bacon. Both... More
