Manchester Pubs & Restaurants & Nightlife

Manchester has a most cosmopolitan range of restaurants, cafés, bars, diners, inns and public houses within its boundaries, and throughout the Greater Metropolitan County every kind and variety of ethnic cuisine may be found. Pubs, inns, wine bars and cafés are as diverse as they are numerous - most now offer lunchtime and evening meals or at least light bar snacks.


Manchester Restaurants

Gaucho Grill
As the name suggests, Gaucho Grill is an Argentinian restaurant specialising in the famous Argentinian beef, renowned as the best in the world, which is matured for between six and eight weeks then flown in direct from Buenos Aires. However, to ignore the rest of the menu would be a mistake. Designed by internationally renowned chef Douglas Rodrigues, starters such as the ceviche (Latin American sushi) and the Argentinian sausages are a must. Choose from a la carte or the new lunch menu. The wine list here is exclusively Argentinian, and at 100-plus bins easily the most extensive Argentinian wine selection in the country.

Groucho's is Manchester's newest and most exciting gourmet dining experience - a new top class globally branded restaurant with ultimate city centre quality and out of town prices. Groucho's Bar is one of Manchester's most well-known and valuable brands. A restaurant well worth making the effort to visit.

Pan Asia marries the different cultures of orient with the style and sophistication of ultra modern Manchester. This busy restaurant, serving a wide variety of Asian cuisine, is well worth a visit. Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Malaysian and Vietnamese delicacies all feature on the continually changing menu. The beautiful interior is modern and quirky and has been changed with the help of a feng shui expert. The exciting new buffet style menu served daily at a fixed price, is immensely popular with the local business community and the city centre shoppers.
