“Crap!”
Review of CAU Media City

CAU Media City
Ranked #12 of 379 Restaurants in Salford
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$7 - US$39
Description: CAU Media City is right at the heart of the action. Within walking distance of Old Trafford and the Lowry Theatre, and just 15 minutes by Metrolink from Manchester city centre, it’s got a great buzz and a menu to match. With outdoor space to catch the summer sun, it’s the perfect place to relax with a cocktail or two.

0Probably one of the worst dining experiences ive had. We arrived at 3.30 and was greeted by a lovely girl who seated us and took our order. 10mins later a big table came in and 15min later their starters came. I asked about ours and 15min later we got our starters! The big table got their dinner before us too! I ordered a steak and that was the excuse they kept giving me as to why everything was taking so long. 90mins later with still no mains in sight we left! Hungry and disgusted! We went next door to Wagamama and had food within 10min. The service in CAU is crap. The manager was rubbish, never once did he come to see us or talk to us! He was walkin round lookin busy while our waitress did his job. Bad service will close this place down. Sort your service out!!!

After wondering around Media City and looking at one of the weekend markets near the Lowry we opted to have some lunch before heading home.
The restaurant is clearly pretty new like many in the area but it's ideal and only minutes from the tram stop.
They offer a great Sunday Lunch option at £15.00 with all the trimmings. I had the stew which was really tasty and a real surprise if I'm honest.
I would certainly recommend it if you are in Media City.

We came here for an early pre-show meal. The restaurant was quiet so we got a table right away, but by the time we were finishing our mains a trio of diners were turned away with a half hour wait, much to their surprise. Well at Media City at 7pm any decent restaurant will be busy!
The Tapa de Cuadril (thinly sliced grilled steak) was really delicious. Service was attentive, perhaps a little overly so. Unfortunately we were sat near the front door. The inner glass door slammed with a gust of frigid air whenever somebody entered or exited which made for a chilly and occasionally noisy meal! Other than that, my partner said the whole place smelled a bit of sweat, but I honestly didn’t notice.

Tasty Malbec, good selection of wines by bottle and glass.
Friendly, attentive service, comfy seating in the booths. Nice location for restaurant. I had empanadas to start followed by burger, onion rings amd thick cut wedges. Succulent burger. Tasty crispy onion rings
Plus i rolled the dice and got 50% of my next visit off food. So next time i might try the steak.
