The title says it all. The food is ok, and we very occasionally go there. But it's not sensational by anyone's definition, and some of the menu items are pretty expensive. All told, if you're desperate for some seafood and in the area, you probably...More

On a quiet Thursday night in early October not many customers and many staff, some of whom, since from where we were sitting and could see a corner of the kitchen did not seem busy. The apparent head guy very good but service shared around...More

We ate at Livebait for my fiance's birthday. Walking into the restaurant we were very impressed with the decor which is relaxed but modern with exposed brick and interesting art. The hostess did not have a record of our reservation, even though we had confirmed...More

We're regular visitors to Livebait in Covent Garden in London (where we've been through most things on the menu by now) so when we saw there was a Livebait in Manchester (opposite the town hall and within a short stagger of the Hilton on Deansgate)...More

Famous for its fresh and simple seafood, Livebait hooks Manchester diners with its cheerfully inviting approach to dining. Old favourites such as cod and chips and Dorset crab are crowd-pleasers, but the menu also features more unusual options, such as the fragrant fish & shellfish curry and the sustainably caught wild striped sea bass. The black and white tiled restaurant interior matches the straightforward attitude of the kitchen, while lighter bites are available all day in the bar area.
