Another week, another fine meal. There are few restaurants in this city which are as dependable as sunrise – but the River Restaurant at the Lowry Hotel is certainly one of them. I’ve visited so many times, but it’s always the same: impeccable service, outstanding food, and with a vibe about the place that makes you feel more positive about life itself.
Regardless of your what mood you’re in when you arrive, or what you order, there’s something about the beautiful interior (and stunning riverside balcony), decent range of drinks, delicious food and regular easy-listening live music, which will get you relaxed and to put a smile on your face.
And it’s not as expensive as you might think – particularly given the celebrity clientele that the place often attracts. Whilst there are pricey main courses involving Wagyu beef and beef wellington or Dover sole (which are all amazing by the way), there’s also a three-course set menu which is available for under £23, and which has been cooked with the same love and attention as their big-hitting a la carte menu.
There’s so much to love about this place, and it’s one of my go-to restaurants when I want to impress someone, though the bar area is also a pretty lively place to head at the start of a night out in the city.
