“Great night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

We arrived and decided to have a couple of drinks at the bar before eating, the cocktail menu was very disappointing, however the bartender recommended an amaretto based cocktail which was lovely.
We did eat late so were the only people eating, but it didn't matter as the atmosphere from the bar was lively. Food was very good, and arrived promptly, complimented with a lovely bottle of Chianti.
Service was good, staff were very friendly and professional. Visited the ladies, and the sound of Michael McIntrye was coming from the speakers! If visiting Manchester again, we would definatley return.

“Mal on Sunday Excellent Treat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

A family outing for brunch on Easter Sunday was a real treat. Friendly service and a wide selection of excellent food all at £19.95, plus a relaxing read of the papers and a cocktail or 2 to top it all off. Thanks to the staff for making this such an enjoyable visit and Easter treat.

“Mal on Sunday buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Fantastic value and great quality. This is one of the best buffet restaurants that I have frequented in a very long time. Comfortable and enjoyable ambiance with friendly professional staff. Well done to all of you, can't wait to visit again.

“Very enjoyable dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

My husband and I went to this restaurant last night for a meal and had a really lovely relaxed time amongst happy staff who genuinly appeared to be enjoying their job.It felt cosy and warm and welcoming and we really enjoyed the food which was artistically presented and after having a starter main course and desert we couldn't eat any more and we have good appetites! The house red wine was surprisingly good . Would definitely return as atmosphere and food were excellent. Particularly good value if you have a High Life Diners card!

“Malmaison Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Superb 3 course meal and service, wines a bit pricey but only as expected in Malmaison. Portions not over large, great for smaller appetite. Tables a bit too close to each other, could easily overhear people on next table.
