My friend and I had Afternoon Tea yesterday and my expectations were high due the prestige,history and grandeur of the hotel. Firstly I would like to compliment the service which was faultless and the presentation and quality of the food. The reason I am disappointed and have marked my experience down is that when i was offered coffee it was... More

We used the bar area for pre and after show drinks. The cocktails are quite pricey but the service was good. It's well worth a visit.

Had meals at this restaurant before, lovely interior design. Staff are very friendly but sometimes just a bit too in your face. Food is alright but feels like it's slightly overpriced for what it is.

Enjoyed a really lovely afternoon tea here which knocked spots off the one offered a few metres up the road at the 'flagship' hotel in St Peter's Square. We (two ladies) chose the hot Gentleman's Afternoon tea which was delicious and served by a charming and efficient young lady. Miniature fish & chips, cheese on toast, mini chicken burger, steak...

The staff where so friendly and accommodating the head chef even came to introduce her self to make sure everything was to our standards. Would defiantly come back here again!!

Description
The dramatically glamorous surroundings of Opus One are a sharp riposte to the Italianate façade of the Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester in which it is situated. An extravaganza of red chandeliers, glossy black woodwork and antique gold wall hangings give this striking central Manchester restaurant a bold, vibrant ambience. Cuisine is fittingly modern British, with locally sourced produce dressed up in excitingly eclectic flavours.
