Hailed as super sophisticated tapas bar, including a mention in the Michelin Guide, this is the place to go when you want to spoil your date with something special. From unique dishes that roam the regions of Spain to cocktails and a rooftop bar, it's one beaut dinner destination.


Mana is undoubtedly our top pick of romantic restaurants for fine dining in Manchester, given that it's the only Michelin star spot. There's swooning by the bucket load thanks to beautiful interiors, but it's also got some pretty sexy plates to boot, with a focus on seasonal British produce from chef founder Simon Martin.

Tast Catala

If you're looking for a taste of romance, Tast Catala is the place to be. With Michelin-starred chef Paco Perez in the kitchen dishing out goodies like braised chicken cannelloni, you're in for a real treat at this King Street gem. It's a stunner, too, with three separate floors, including an eating area, bar, and a private dining room.
