Tripadvisor reviewer

Visited Pier Eight last night for pre theatre meal and is was absolutely lovely.
The staff were really really good and very helpful and the food was first class.
“Belly pork for starter was delicious and Cod for main course also delicious
We then waited for the interval were we finished off with cheeses and biscuits.
Give it a try if you are visiting the Lowry or Media city.”

Pre theatre Meal
“Good, Very Good and Excellent Food (pan fried cod and the risotto) were excellent. Deserts served during the interval at our restaurant table together with drinks…….. No standing around here jostling shoulders trying to juggle stuff in your hands
Downside is it is a tad expensive but when you get what you pay for and everyone enjoys the evening there are no complaints…. Finally our waitress was first class in conversation and service. A must to return to….well done The Lowry a steal on the Manchester theatres.”
