We say

Dining at celebrity chef Marco Pierre's Steakhouse and Grill is an elevating experience in more ways than one. Firstly, the restaurant is set 25 floors up in the canalside Cube complex, crowning an already coruscating building with a glass alfresco balcony; second and perhaps more important, its steak menu is truly something special. It's not cheap, but whether you decide to opt for the 10oz rib eye or the 16oz T-bone, you should come away well stuffed - especially, if you try the heavenly sticky toffee puddings for dessert. The rooftop terrace and champagne bar – not to mention the views – make this a great place for a special occasion. Many would argue that the filmic views belie a humdrum menu that lacks culinary flair. For us, the views and the food are in perfect accord – indeed if you just fancy a decent steak somewhere more sumptuous than a pub, there really are no rivals.

You say Average Rating ★★★☆☆

Upscale averageness ★★★☆☆

Situated just outside the Mailbox, and offering stunning views of Birmingham from the balcony, Marco Pierre Whites is worth a visit for the location alone if you're in the city. The bar has a relaxing and refined ambience, and offers a full range of cocktails and champagnes to kick-start any evening, even if you don't intend to eat. The food itself, however, is variable. Whereas the sharing platter of Land starters is unusual and delicious, the much-touted steak isn't the even greatest you'll find in The Mailbox, let alone the best in Birmingham, as some Marco Pierre White devotees claim. The dessert menu is as amazing as you’d expect. With a choice of liqueur coffees and dessert wines to complement your choices, maybe you’ll have forgotten the averageness of the main courses by the time the bill arrives.
