The gentleman's teas arrived10 minutes before the traditional ones and they were forced to start as eventually everything was going cold . We didn't get our tea or coffee until we had nearly finished eating... More

Loved this as it was not overly full. Just right to relax and talk and enjoy. Would visit again and recommend it for a classy night out.

Great personal service, sophisticated menu with being fussy or pretentious. The chef and team deliver consistently high quality food, rivalled only by a wine list that just delivers tremendous choices to suit the menu.

I had pigeon breast followed by fillet steak. The pigeon was very moist and extremely tender and the risotto rice it came on was just amazing. Fillet steak was so tasty and the knife cut through it like butter. It was fantastic and cannot speak highly enough. All the staff were very good.

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.
