An interesting glass structure over one of the entrances covers a stairway leading to the restaurant. If you choose to enter via the other entrance (a bar) the venue has a seaside feel to it which is warm and welcoming, the theme continued into the restaurant below. I had a 15 minute wait and trawled the drinks menu, mostly cocktails.... More

Was part of a large (15-20) party presented with a set menu at £45 per head. Some of group not fish eaters (allergy) - vegetarian or single dish offering. Food was disappointing- vegetarian sushi was bland bordering tasteless, chicken skewers over cooked and sole offering of duck not to my liking. Accompanying sweet potato mash was under seasoned and watery.... More

The food: As well as the normal starter, main style food, they offer "tapas" style ordering where you order lots of different little dishes which you can share or have on your own. They are brought... More

On arriving we asked somebody where to go as we hadn't been here before. The boy wasn't too pleasant/polite but did point us in the right direction. When we found the restaurant downstairs - it had quite an odd smell to it but looked lovely! We were greeted near the bar by the hosts who were rather rude and I... More

Went here on 16 April ended up leaving almost immediately as the smell as we walked down the steps was pretty unpleasant. Opted instead for a visit to Grand Pacific, the new addition to this group!

We visited here at the weekend just for drinks and they were amazing, the music was brilliant, the cocktail menu was fab and all the ones we tried were gorgeous, highly recommend this place to anyone that likes cocktails and suggest you try the banana pancake one!

It was our first time in Manchester celebrating special occasion. Australasia seemed like a good choice, unfortunately we left extremely disappointed and upset. The good. Beautiful place. Was actually amazed by the decor and location. Very interesting concept. Delicious cocktails and food looked beautiful. The awful. Owners should be mortified by their staff. Been working in hospitality management myself and... More
