Its a shame the 3 for 15 just takes off the minimum value product, just encourages people to pay for main and then buy pudding seperate

I have been previously and had a really enjoyable experience. Unfortunately on this occasion, the service was poor. It took forever for a waiter to come to our table so that delayed our food order. We had to ask twice for our table to be clearer once we’d finished. We also had to get a water refill ourselves. The restaurant was only half full so it’s unclear what was causing the slow service.

Our waiter was absolutely lovely. Food was wonderful, we over ordered by accident but were very sad we couldn't finish it all as it was so good. The £15 deal was a great initiative to get us there. Will definitely be coming back (possibly multiple times a week) Thank you!

The set menu was delicious and we all preferred it to having to choose! The portions were generous and staff friendly. A lovely evening.

The only reason I marked down on Service was that upon being seated at our table and saying to our waitress that we wanted to do the Tipsy Tapas, we were told that the system had not flagged our booking as this. I had booked online and there was no mentioned of having to put our request of doing the Tipsy Tapas in the special requirements, which is what we were apparently meant to do. I have looked back at the website, menus and online booking and it does not say to add this as an additional requirement to the online booking anywhere. We were told by manager that they would honour the offer on this one occasion. This left the experience slightly sour. Website and menu need to be clearer, the menu also advertises it but there is no small print to say that it must be booked in advanced!

Lovely food. Good £15 for 3 dishes deal. King prawns were tasty - lots of garlic. Supposed to have chilli which it did but was not spicy. Catalan bread was super tasty too.

I particularly appreciated the service, which managed to be both prompt and unobtrusive, and was very friendly. Also, your music policy is excellent and just the right volume.

Extremely nice restaurant, great food and wine - we visited on a Friday afternoon, so it was quiet - but it’s a nice set up and a great menu, located in an area of Manchester City Centre that many wont be too familiar with.
