Expert review of Opus One

Modern British food is served in five-star style in the centre of Manchester.

Opus One is in my favourite part of the Radisson Edwardian Manchester. The dramatic space with a collanaded front has been stylishly done out in reds and blacks with oversized lights hugging the corniced pillars. The food is as stylish as the surroundings – think Modern British dishes served on slates with sauces and accompaniments in mini copper pans.

Food and drink: 

You’ll be offered locally-sourced British dishes with a twist and portions are big (a little too big for me). Carnivores will be in their element with choices like fillet of beef (£24.95), venison loin (£19.75) and pan-fried pheasant (£16.50). I really enjoyed the complimentary ravioli amuse-bouche the last time I ate here but my large cheese soufflé starter and gnocci main prevented me from squeezing any dessert in.

Ambience: 

The bar next to the restaurant is a popular hangout for local office workers – I enjoy sampling the cocktails here. The restaurant is more of a formal affair with couples celebrating occasions, hotel guests making the most of a good hotel restaurant and local businesspeople impressing their clients.

Service: 

As you would expect in a five-star hotel, the service is very attentive...sometimes slightly too attentive – I have only managed to pour my own wine once here.

Location: 

In the Radisson Edwardian Manchester on Peter Street in the centre of Manchester.

Price advice: 

Prices here aren’t cheap - starters average £8, mains £18 and desserts are £6.50. Keep an eye out for offers on voucher sites though – at the moment some are offering 25% off all food.
