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.

Our Manchester restaurant reviews are conducted using a complex secret questionnaire with each restaurant being reviewed on 100 different criteria. This takes into account the entire experience, as well as the food, service, decor, ambience and value-for-money.

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.

You can also find the best restaurants in Manchester listed by cuisine.
