Distinctly Average

Poor service coupled with average food. But I have heard mixed reviews. I would not write this place off per se. I just don't know if when we visited it was an off night. Good menu in a nice location which is central.

I went along for a cheap and cheerful night out. The food was very bland and forgettable. Unfortunately cheap equaled a poor experience.

The dots say it all - nothing special, and the staff not as friendly as the Beluga in Bramhall. A place to visit if you fancy a drink and a bite to eat while shopping, but not a place to book for a special occassion.

We visited Beluga as part of a Groupon voucher for a family meal. The choice given was great and the food was lovely! It had a lot of parties the night we visited and with just 2 staff was left waiting with dirty plates a while. However i would definately go back.

I purchased a Groupon deal in March for "Afternoon Tea with a Twist for Two" at Beluga, and duly booked a table for my Birthday. I was excited to go, as I had heard great things about the place.
