Vermillion and its sister cocktail lounge, Cinnabar, is just the place if you want glamour on the cards. From the opulent interiors to the fact MasterChef finalist Bobby Geetha created the menu of Indian fusion plates, this restaurant is sure to impress.

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

A neighbourhood bar and kitchen in Ancoats, Elnecot is ideal if you're after something a little low-key for a romantic meal. Ditching the extravagance in favour of stripped-back interiors, striking lighting and an open kitchen, this spot will seduce with its enticing small plates.

Bar San Juan

It may be a dinky little restaurant, but what it lacks in space, Bar San Juan more than makes up for in flavour and charm. Mosey on down to this Spanish gem, which is tucked away in Chorlton, for intimate dining tables, candles and a whole heap of tapas dishes.

Mana is undoubtedly our top pick of Michelin star restaurants in Manchester, given that it's the only one. There's romance 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.

While it may be owned by a renowned British footballer, talk of sport is left behind at Rosso, courtesy of their classy 116-year-old interiors and sought-after plates. An exclusive King Street restaurant, this place will dazzle with classic dishes and contemporary concoctions.

Inspired by the city's rich history, Mamucium couples classic dishes with Mancunian flavours to bring you a flavoursome menu. Think Lancashire onion soup, lobster macaroni cheese, Cheshire beef and more at this gorgeous restaurant on Todd Street.

Evuna Deansgate

Tucked away in Deansgate, Evuna is a hidden gem when it comes to Manchester's romantic restaurants. From bare brick and wooden furniture to the flickering of candlelight, this small and intimate hideaway is sure to impress with its delicious dishes or Spanish wines.
