This was a better than average visit for a restaurant that, for me, has always promised more than it delivered. Gone are the red walls that used to dominate the room, and the now-white walls give a light, airy feel (helped by the very effective air con) and help to provide a nice atmosphere. The food still isn’t cheap, and evening the lunch menu isn’t dirt cheap. But it isn’t bad though: my mackerel starter was good, and the chicken fillet main course wasn’t bad, even if it was a bit plain and consisted mainly of just slices of chicken. The chocolate and caramel dessert was very nice. We got a bit ‘abandoned’ for a while, with no one apparently very willing to take orders for coffee or allow us to pay the bill, which was a surprise in a largely empty restaurant, but ultimately this place remains one of the most popular eateries in central Manchester.
