About The Place Restaurant

The Place hotel is a beautifully restored grade II listed building located only 100 metres from Manchester's Piccadilly station. As well as four star hotel apartments, it also offers modern European cuisine at The Place Restaurant. The period features – arched ceilings and Victorian brickwork – continue inside the restaurant and have been artfully combined with industrial ironwork and designer furnishings to make for a stylish interior. French windows facing the cobbled courtyard garden only add to the experience for diners in the spacious main dining room. Hotel guests or visitors can start their day at The Place Restaurant with a range of hot and cold breakfast options, or visit later to enjoy the lunch and dinner menu, which is full of crowd pleasers like thick cut sandwiches, salads, burgers, fish and chips, pasta, steak and more. The impressive wine list has a selection of old and new world wines, as well as a great range of sparkling wines.

The Place Apartment Hotel in Manchester was simply superb. I have never given a review before where everything was 10 out of 10, but it was. 3 courses of the most fantastic food for 12.95 in a fantastic place. You just have to go there

The Place Hotel,Manchester was very good, the food was excellent and good value.

Place Restaurant was good - a bit empty - we were the only diners. Standard hotel fare, and v close to piccadilly station

Excellent choice! Super service, highly recommended!!

Due to a function, our reservation was moved from the restaurant to an atrium area which was pleasant, if a little cool.

The set menu had enough options but was overpriced compared to similar menus at other city centre restaurants. We had a Top Table discount that made this better.

The food was alright but not amazing.

Place restaurant Manchester. Booked the two courses for a tenner abd this was exvellent value. Good food and big portions made this excellent value for the money. Would definitely recommend.

I very much enjoyed my meal at The Place in Manchester. Although we had to eat our meal in the bar area rather than the restaurant (as the latter had been closed off for the evening), the atmosphere was very pleasant. The set menu was pleasantly varied and excellent value for money, whilst the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Overall, a very good experience.

My mum and I went to the Place before we went to a concert at the Apollo. The restaurant was very quiet, we were the only peoople in for half an hour but very nice design and the hotel looks lovely. Food was nice, limited on choice but the food was tasty and well presented. Would recommend!

Service was good, furnishings and surroundings were nice, was very cold though, shame there wasn't any others people in having a meal so no real atmosphere.. food was good, apart from one meal was delayed.


The restaurant was closed for a wedding, and so we were placed in the "garden", which was actually pretty pleasant! Service could not be faulted, we were also one of the only ones there, and with 2 for 1 it's good value! Food could have been fresher perhaps.

We had a very pleasant lunch at the Place. The restaurant itself was rather dark for a sunny day, but there are a couple of tables in the atrium area. Staff were attentive and friendly.

The Place Restaurant in Manchester should be avoided. The decor takes the worst of the 1960's and 1970's into one place. I ordered the salmon and my partner ordered the lamb. When the food did come out, the lamb was tough and the vegetables were cold. With the salmon came prawns, which had not been peeled properly. The sauce had so much oil I considered ringing BP and telling them they had another oil slick!

Very disappointing.

It was a beautiful place. the food was delicious and the service was very pleasant indeed. Would definitely recommend. We had a home made vegetable soup for starter a very sumptious plaice crumble which the freshest of vegetables, nicely cooked al dente.

Excellent service, lovely venue and good food. Would recommend to anyone wanting a realxed lunch at a reasonable price.

The Place near Manchester Piccadilly - it was the second time that we had visited in less than a week and I would still recommend it as it has good food, with good size portions for not very much money. We had the early bird lunch menu - 2 courses for £10. Admittedly there are only 3 choices per course but this was not a problem. Food is well presented and the service is good.

The Place, Manchester - Very convenient for Manchester Picadilly train station. Good food although the £10 menu is a little limited. Very big portion though! Had to sit in the bar as there was a function in the restaurant but not a problem. Would definitely come again.

We had the early doors menu - 2 courses for £10. The ham terrine and the tuna nicoise were very good and the calves livers was highly rated too. There was only myself and my husband in there so obviously a little quiet! Staff very attentive but not overly so. Liked the fact that they provided a jug of water rather than offering bottled water.

The Place, Piccadilly Manchester - 16th July 2011

I booked this restaurant as it is really close to the station. My friend and I were in Manchester for the day on a theatre trip.

The Place is a wonderful combination of old and new great renovation! The Service was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful.

We ordered from the Light bites two courses for £10 and were pleasantly surprised at the quality and presentation of the food. Definately one to try.

As others have mentioned, this restaurant is inside a hotel. We were situated in the bar area as there was a function in the main room. This was fine but depends what sort of atmosphere you want. The food was ok and reasonable for the price, however the menu was limited and was a bit disappointed that 2 of the 3 main course options were salads which left only one hot option.
