Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
The Moreau family’s “so very classical” Northern Quarter outfit is a bit of a “Marmite restaurant” – “over-ambitious” to some, pleasing to others. It moved from nearby Church St in early 2016, and the jury is also out on the roomier new locale; initial reports suggest that it “needs to be full to work”, or risks feeling “like a morgue”.
Limited commentary of late on the Moreau family’s “tucked away venture in the Northern Quarter”, although all of it – even critical reports – thought the modern French cuisine was good. In early 2016, it moved just a stone’s throw from its original site on Church Street to a bigger, more prominent, two-storey building on the corner of Edge Street and High Street (hence for the time being we’ve left it unrated).
“They take their ingredients and cooking very seriously” at the Moreau family's Northern Quarter Gallic restaurant, and the results from the “nicely judged tasting menus” can be “simply fabulous”; the “fascinating” French wine list also attracts praise.
“Well prepared” the Gallic dishes certainly are… so it’s a shame reports on the Moreau family’s Northern Quarter restaurant almost invariably note that they come in “small portions” and/or “priced above their station”.
