The Best Restaurants in Manchester

We've compiled our list of the best restaurants in Manchester from the reviews submitted by Restaurants Of Manchester's team of Trusted Reviewers.

Unlike other websites offering Manchester restaurant reviews, our secret questionnaire is more complex with each restaurant being reviewed on 100 different criteria.

Restaurants can not pay for positive reviews and we do not show them the criteria they are being scored on.

Of course, all reviews are only a reflection of individual experiences or specific visits and we're always looking for more Trusted Reviewers to ensure our list of Best Manchester Restaurants remains reflective. If you are a well travelled foodie, and would like to become a Trusted Reviewer, contact us here.
