You know the sort of place, everyone says how amazing it is and when you get there you go 'is that it'.... A tip, go and spend your money somewhere lease where they actually work for your custom and treat you like a customer. Six of us dined here on a Recent Friday evening, we arrived at 8.30 for our...

Been twice in the last two weeks and have loved it both times. The food is great. The wine choices are good. The atmosphere and seating is brill. I love this restaurant. It isn't cheap but it is quality and worth every penny. Both times I have been with a group of 5 and group of 8 (had to have... More

Nice decor and friendly informative staff but the portions are small on the sharing dishes and come with a big price tag. I'm sure the menu could be attacked better from my end but I felt there was a lack of depth to the cooking that justified the price.

Had this booked for a special occasion and whilst the setting and the atmosphere is really very cool without being too pretentious I was not overwhelmed by the food. The menu reads terrifically well but execution was only average and for the money I'd expect near excellence. Service was only adequate and at points was non-existent on a busy-ish mid-week... More

We had a booking for 9pm but where left in bar for 45 minutes. When we pointed this out to managing staff, they amply made up for the delay by offering us a free bottle of wine. Beautiful ambiance and sumptuous food; not to be missed

My friend had already had this on our list of of eating places and things to do for our weekend away in Manchester unbeknown to me, but after having a conversation with another one of my hairdressers clients she said that you must go to the Australasia when you go Manchester. I have to say by far this restaurant goes... More

I have been waiting to go here for some time and my review is both positive and negative. The atmosphere and general feel of the place I have to say is good, however there are other aspects that weren't great. The waitress initially was very attentive however she seemed to be so busy that our wine which she was serving... More

Visited here with a couple of friends whilst staying in the city for business. One of the nicer areas in Manchester. Only visited for drinks ( didn't eat) but the service and and range of drinks was very good. Drinks are not cheap but a good selection. Would visit again.
