Ambience spot on!
I am very particular in the surrondings and the overall ambience when I come out to eat, whether its with my husband alone, with family or friends. I think that Albert's in Didsbury ticks all my boxes for satisifaction. I havent ticked the Sunday lunch box but do intend to bring my elderly father in law and husband over the next couple of week for a treat.
Sunday was my first visit. I am surprised it took me so long to dine there as it has been recommended to us on numerous occasions.
The food was ok, the atmosphere good and the service great. Overall we loved it and will be back.
Once bitten - you're hooked.
Never fails to please
Booked a table for our pearl wedding , just the family, from 7 to 87 and it suited all. Seating food and service all excellent, we all had different meals and they all arrived together and hot.
We had booked for 8 but was no problem when we changed to 9, they said we may be squashed but the round booth was perfect. Thank you to all at Alberts for a lovely afternoon.
Informal Business Lunch
Perfect setting for an informal/convivial business lunch - was extremely busy and so service a little slower than their usual high standards - and by that I just mean that they took slightly longer to refresh drinks and bring the bill so no big deal really - however food piping hot and delicious as always. Parking can sometimes be tricky as (to my knowledge) their is no car park - very good venue and always rammed so speaks for itself
Food and Service were Excellent, including special complimentary dessert for my birthday.
Family Birthday Meal
Alberts is a lovely restaurant, great ambience and very good food.
But the drinks waiter service was extremely slow, at one point no-one on the table had a drink (POOR) we would have drank twice as much if the service had been better.
Great Birthday meal !
A Tuesday night and the place was really Busy! Had a great atmosphere and the service was excellent :-)
Will be back soon !
Great food, excellent service!
We ate off the lunch menu and both really enjoyed it. Would highly recommend it, we'll definitely be returning.
Great as usual
We took a group of business colleagues here for an evening meal and the food was faultless as usual. Service was good and the place was packed on a Tuesday evening which shows how good it is.
The pot roast beef dish was outstanding. Will be returning..
lovely as usual
Love alberts seasonal food and lovely staff, with a beautiful modern resturant.
Met up with partner for food straight from work . Booked table online for 6pm . We had 2 courses for £10:95 menu which was available till. 7pm . Food and service excellent . Some distraction from relaxed atmosphere due to restaurant phone ringing and diners with small children , but still enjoyed and set menu good value for money.
Great Lunch - Expensive drinks
Lovely relaxed atmosphere, six of us for lunch and we all really enjoyed the food. The two course lunch is good value at £10.95 but expect to double the price if you like a glass of wine and a coffee. Portion sizes suited us (pensioners with small appetites!) Food was delicious, well presented and service was friendly and efficient.
My first visit to Alberts was for a business lunch.
The restaurant has a good buzz, but as it filled up it did become quit noisy!
The service was patchy, but when we did get service it was excellent!
Food was really good.
Only real complaint is that the restaurant was too hot!!!
Booked here for my 40th birthday with a dear friend. The ambience was lovely, the food was exceptional and the service cannot be faulted. Would definitely recommend to everyone and I can't wait until I can go again.
I'm glad I booked this restaurant it was the most amazing one I've been to so far everything about it was amazing the service, food and definitely the value. I will definitely be booking a table there again very soon.
GOOD NIGHT OUT
This was our first visit to Alberts Didsbury and it will certainly not be our last.
The food and service was excellent and the restaurant was very busy during the time of our visit.
The staff were very friendly and attentive at all times.
Still the best in Didsbury.
Love this place and they never disappoint. Friendly and efficient staff, good food and a very cool place to drink.
Came here after walking past
Came here after walking past a few times, and by recommendation by a friend. It Was mine and my partners anniversary and we were not disappointed. The menu was fantastic and the food was of excellent quality at a reasonable price (not short on the portions either! The service was very attentive, and from the moment we entered felt welcomed. Ambience lovely, perfect for our occasion, and we will be returning and have already recommended to friends!
Always good food service ambience. Excellent in fact.
We took my mother for a meal to celebrate her 70th birthday, the food was great and the service was outstanding highly recommend
First time I've visited (friday), all staff were great. The food was lovely except sauce came quite cold, everything else was on point, the look, taxi service, outside heaters worked the best I've ever sat under.. The whole experience left me with a smile on my face.. I will definitely be returning... :D
we had a party of 9 adults
we had a party of 9 adults and though restaurant was extremely busy at 7 it didn't in anyway compromise on service and food. Had a wonderful evening food delicious and beautifully presented . Staff very attentive and friendly and my father of 82 thorughly enjoyed evening.
Would definitely recommend!
Always reliable, excellent service, good food and relaxed atmosphere. A fine companion to Albert's Shed
Good food, lovely atmosphere.
Good food, lovely atmosphere. Staff are attentive and efficient.
Great place to go
Never had a bad experience at Alberts, food, service and atmosphere always good.
Excellent food, service and
Excellent food, service and value, what more can you ask for ?
Great for meeting friends.
Great for meeting friends. A noisy restaurant, acoustics are not great so not for people who want a quiet restaurant but food and service are excellent and the price is fine for the quality of food.
Very late lunch!
Great food and a great atmosphere. Been before for a Birthday meal and food was just as good for two. Great deal on lunch menu, especially that it was available till 7pm on a Friday night.
A thoroughly good time
We came for a friend's 40th birthday lunch and left feeling full and happy. Really excellent service from our waiter, Martin. In fact, all staff were very attentive. Beautiful food and atmosphere. I'd mentioned one of my friends would like gluten free and when we arrived, there was a gluten-free menu on our table with lots of choice. Lovely surprise brownie, ice cream and candle for the birthday girl at the end. Having eaten at Albert's Shed in central Manchester several times, Albert's Didsbury had a lot to live up to and it absolutely delivered.
Excellent food at excellent value
My partner and I decided to take his mother out for lunch and Albert's seemed like a safe choice with a wide variety of food. We all opted for 2 courses for £10.95 which was brilliant value given that mains alone are nearer £15 so we had fish and chips (very light non-greasy batter, fluffy crispy chunky chips and fresh soft white bread), the burger (very nicely cooked so it was still pink in the middle), followed by the chocolate volcano (a must-try for any chocolate lover - very rich and chocolatey, but lovely and gooey) and the sticky toffee pudding (as you'd expect, soft sponge with nice toffee sauce). All in all, the food was extremely tasty and we all left feeling full (possibly a little too full!) and very happy with our meal!
One of our Top Restaurants in Mcr
We were invited to this restaurant by friends and have returned several times since.
The atmosphere in the Albert's is relaxed and a bit of luxury all rolled into one.
The food is always a pleasure and we enjoy every mouthful.
We have enjoyed each and every experience we are now introducing friends and family.
If you want somewhere to celebrate or just fine dine...
Alberts is the place to go... friendly attententive staff.
We highly recommend it!!!
So So Good!
Absolutely fabulous restaurant...terrific value on Lunch menu....Food A++++++ ... Well worth a visit or two....or three!! Staff attentive and always helpful....Great for Casual dining or Special occassions!
Always enjoy Albert s Didsbury and find food and service good but this time my soup was cold, it was changed after waiting (friends had finished their starter nearly) & have to say replacement was' nt Very hot so bit disppointing.
Great Lunch at Alberts's Didsbury
We were greeted on entering . Shown to our table and told our server would be with us shortly and she was. She was very
informative and attentive without going over the top . Once the order was given the food and drinks arrived without any delay.
The fod was hot well cooked and delicious . A very enjoyable lunch and would have no hesitation in returning.
Took 3 friends for the 1st time - food & service excellent, chicken in tarragon sauce tasty, will definitely go back. The only negative was the noise but in a packed restaurant on a Friday night this was to be expected.
A regular destination
Nice to dine in a bustling restaurant which has a good atmosphere as a result. Selected off the a la carte menu which was reasonably priced. The Malayan chicken was very nice and a decent portion size. Service was good without being overly attentive.
Always First Class
This restaurant is amazing, no matter when you go the food and the service is always first class. The welcome from the service desk is excellent, and nothing is ever too much trouble. The little pie and peas to start with is the best starter in the whole world. Even better than scallops, and they are amazing too.
Family night out.
Wanted to intriduce another family member to The Albert-did not disappoint.We will continue to spread the word!
The overall experience of Alberts is very enjoyable. The staff are attentive, the atmosphere is excellent & the value of food/drink very reasonable. The food was delicious & arrived well presented & within a reasonable waiting time. Would definitely return.
Alberts Didsbury Lunch for 3
Food and service very good, as usual. Somewhat noisy as the restaurant was busy. Staff very helpful and pleasant as always..
We are always telling friends etc to visit Alberts . A smart and uptodate ambiance in the restaurant and cocktail bar
Had an excellent Saturday lunch. Great food and good location. Would recommend
Had lovely night with good food great selection of drinks and great service
We went for lunch to celebrate my mums birthday. The meal was the best I've had in a restaurant for a ling time. The staff were were very helpful and friendly. My mum who is very fussy could not find anything to complain about which is a first.
I can highly recommend Albert's. My wife has already rebooked to go with friends.
Never a bad meal........
I have eaten at Albert's a number of times and on Tuesday evening took my parents, who were visiting from Ireland. All were agreed that the food was outstanding, in particular the scallops starter and the Malayan chicken & seafood platter mains. The only complaint was that we were too full up for dessert!
Excellent all around
I had the mushroom and truffle oil soup for starter, chargrilled chicken with dauphinoise potatoes and honey glazed root vegetables for main, sticky toffee pudding for dessert. All of my food was excellent, the taste was absolutely delicous. Recommend to others and will definitely go again!
We had a great early Xmas night out at Alberts, lovely food and great atmosphere.
Really glad we went there, hope to visit again soon.
I took my mum for her birthday with a friend both had never been there before, we all had a wonderful meal and had a brilliant evening celebration
Outstanding - what more can I say?
Menu selection is terrific, food is amazing, staff wonderful - we love it!
Great food & service
Always deliver! Great menu for everyone and considering it was Xmas, food & service were excellent.
Roll out the barrels
Alberts always has a good atmosphere. The cavernous dining room could be cold and unwelcoming but the combination of well-designed space, festive decorations, low lighting pricked with twinkly Christmas lights, the ever friendly staff, an open kitchen and the hum and clatter of happy diners, creates a wonderful ambience and makes this restaurant one of my favourites for a special occasion.
If there's another thing Alberts does well it is portions and all of us were beyond sated, with fishcakes and scallops followed by perfectly-cooked fillet steaks and a lone "proper burger". Dessert shouldn't have been on the cards but a single Banoffee Sundae was ordered and wolfed down with four spoons before we rolled home happy and full to bursting.
