It was really really nice here. Didn’t feel like we were dining in Manchester. It’s very classy and the food was delicious. The service was personal and fantastic. The only reason the service wasn’t exceptional is because we waited a while for the bill.

Good but not fantastic, had to send main course back, but the replacement was good, however had to eat alone, as my wife had finished hers, not ideal when its your wedding anniversary ! however the starter was excellent, so they will get a reprieve !

First time coming to this restaurant and it is great to see Manchester finally has a proper seafood restaurant after a long while. The menu is great and full of various of seafood. Unfortunately the oysters we had were just average, maybe they werent in season. Prices can be quite dear but service was great, a little bit more attention to detail would be ideal, like providing us with clean plates after we had the seafood platters as the shells etc have dirt and sands. However, our waitress was very attentive and friendly. Dessert menu is not exciting and expensive. This place is great for seafood and I will recommend this.

There were two 'actors' dressed as Laurel and Hardy wandering around the restaurant going up to tables to tell jokes. My friends and I were constantly hoping they would not come to our table....it was a bit off putting.
I had one of the specials, it was very expensive for what it was.

We had such a lovely night here. Amazing wine, amazing food! The oysters were fresh and tasty. My husband had the crab and I had the linguine which were both delicious. We were visiting Manchester for the day and stumbled across this place and I am so glad we did. Just perfect for a couple of seafood lovers. Would recommend it highly and definitely would go back!

Excellent long lunch spent at Randall & Aubin. (Spent over 3 hours as we lost track of time!) Great relaxing place. The seafood is truly spectacular. Would highly recommend and totally worth a visit if you’re in Manchester especially if you are a seafood or fish lover!

The oysters are to die for - not literally! The wines are nice though a little pricey. Service varies but generally very friendly and attentive.

My partner and I booked a table for our anniversary. Our booking apparently couldn't be found, but luckily it wasn't an issue and we were given a nice table in the middle of the restaurant after our coats were taken and hung up.

The music wasn't obtrusive (a real bugbear of mine ) and our waiter Steven was with us straight away.

The beef carpaccio was excellent, though I would have preferred capers rather than hazelnuts. My girlfriend had the crab cakes which were also good.

For mains we had the grilled tuna and whole garlic lobster with a gratin dauphinoise on the side. Both were very good.

Dessert was vanilla cheesecake and sticky date pudding, both very good.

Steven was able to give good wine recommendations and the service was exceptional. We were neither rushed nor left waiting at any point.

We'll be returning very soon to our new favourite Manchester restaurant!

The food was delicious, however there were fruit flies around the table which did spoil the experience.
I had the garlic prawns, my friends had lobster and the scallops. We are all fish fans and we're not disappointed with the taste.

Quiet as Monday lunchtime but atmosphere was relaxed and we were made very welcome. Would recommend the haddock and chips. My partner had sea bass which was tasty but thought that there should have been two fillets rather than one for the price. I especially enjoyed the free wine-only available in January unfortunately. Service was friendly and efficient.
