British
We opened our first restaurant in Castlefield, Manchester in 2004 with a clear aim:

To deliver quality food to local customers at a reasonable price in a sharp,modern space with friendly, pretentious service. We have pursued that goal ever since and it has earned us many loyal customers.

Our menu is probably classed as British with some additional favourites from Italy and around the globe.

We have one of the best locations in Didsbury on Barlow Moor Road between West Didsbury and Didsbury village. With one of the best alfresco dining spaces anywhere around.

Was not impressed with the steak. Plus now having to pay extra for a side. Used to get 2 sides abs a sauce. Now either or. Steak was under seasoned

Still love the atmosphere here and the staff are lovely.

Extremely disappointed in how this restaurant runs its business and how it deals with customers when they are not happy. 40 min I had to wait for my drink (cocktail) everybody else’s arrived before our meal. Eventually when it arrived it was awful to which I sent it back to make another. Another 10 min passes I ask again where my drink is baring in mind it’s 28 deg outside and I’ve been sat with no drink for this length of time. The waitress came back and said really sorry but the guy behind the bar has actually admitted he doesn’t know how to
Make the cocktail you’ve asked for so can I get you something else free of charge. I ask for an aperol spritze. My food arrives I still don’t have a drink I have to ask again my drink turns up and I’ve literally got a few more mouthful s left of my main course to eat. We ask for the bill and there it is we’ve also been charged for the drink to which we told the waitress who was extremely apologetic and embarrassed and had it removed. Apparently all manager s were new NO ONE came to apologise we won’t be returning anytime soon. Very disappointed.

Would have preferred staff to continue with covid care. After freedom day no staff wore masks. My group was pleased to have a bay table and screens still in place.
The food was delicious. Well presented on the plate. Ambience pleasurable. Service very slow. Our waiter didn’t smile once!

Met up with friend not seen for a long time, she said she felt like she was having a meal abroad and the fish was delicious. We both had a lovely afternoon, lovely meal, lovely staff and beautiful outside sitting area.

Our server Giuseppe was brilliant, service with a smile and interactive. the food was delicious as usual however there was 2 mild disappointments 1) i had the rabbit gnocchi starter, usually very creamy and a decent portion for a starter, last night was watery and about half the portion i would get. the main, Swordfish and muscles was faultless, compliments to the chef. my other slight disappointment was the Guinness, it wasn't cold, it had lost the head before i even managed to take my first sip. thats a sign that the guinness has gone bad apart from that the overall night was lovely.

Really enjoyed the meal. Sat outside on a sunny day could have been in Majorca with cool music. One mistake with one food item, quickly sorted and well communicated. Young Italian waiter very attentive, never had to look for him once, which given his coveragge was great.

We have been here several times and had really good tasty food , however today was a little disappointing. The beef dinner the roast potatoes were very well done and the veg was bland and over cooked ,the beef was also quite chewy , the sirloin was tasteless no seasoning. The only saving grace was the dessert. Not users if we will return again after today’s experience. .

Im a big fan of Alberts and have been for years. This summer menu needs updating, no offers of any pasta dishes and most of it has been on it for along time. More options needed.

The food and service were good, however at 7pm on a Friday night it felt like we were at Ibiza beach party. The music was far too loud and spoilt our evening as we had to shout at one another. I will not book again if the music is like this again.

Great , would definitely recommend & return . Had a DJ outside which sounded great as it was a warm evening, so the vibe was great, Shame we didn’t hear any of that from inside , though , which was much more formal. All good though !

Wasn’t a bad experience just bang average. Food wasn’t hot when arrived was just warm. Could do with a few more staff. Wouldn’t rush back anytime soon. Nice vibes, would be a good place for drinks with friends rather than a meal out.

Can't fault anything about my visit to Albert's Didsbury. I can recommend the rabbit gnocchi starter which I will be having as a main dish the next time I eat there.
