A vibrant slice of Spain right in the centre of Manchester, La Bandera Restaurante Bar serves an exciting selection of tapas dishes and larger Spanish delicacies. Bright yellow leather banquettes and contemporary red lampshades add a colourful Iberian flair to this contemporary eatery, while the wine list offers a great selection of bottles from around the region.

Authentic Spanish produce features throughout the La Bandera Restaurante Bar menu. Popular sharing platters include selections of the best Spanish cheeses, and a range of perfectly aged meats, including lightly spiced chorizo and jamon gran reserva. Small plates include inventive items like twice-cooked Galician octopus with a mojo rojo drizzle, and mini chicken escalopes in traditional Mouruno marinade with an Asian-style sauce. There are juicy meat recipes ranging from Iberian pork loin to lamb shank, and rice delicacies like rice with lobster cooked in a seafood broth.

From the bar at La Bandera Manchester, there is a great wine selection, and colourful cocktails made using fresh fruit and premium spirits. The dessert menu offers up treats with stunning presentation, including coconut bread with a caramelised top, and lush tiramisu.

A great showcasing of Spanish culinary flair right in the city centre, La Bandera Restaurante Bar sits 8 minutes' walk from Salford Central Rail Station.

    Loved the 'solomillo' with mushrooms sauce and then the 'torrija' for dessert.
    Our favourite Spanish restaurant, we keep going every chance we find :)

  • ((((( 19 February 2017 by Jonathan Mcgeehan from Manchester

    The food, gin and tonics, wine and atmosphere were superb. But the staff were fantastic (especially Peter) and made it a great night. We'd definitely recommend la bandera.

    It was unbelievably bad experience, to the point that I have disappointing my girlfriend in choosing your restaurant. the food was mediocre and unseasoned and too sweet. I would raise the voice then but cutesy of other guest and my companion we decided to leave this matter to a later time.

    The food was outstanding and great value. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for us. The wine was also excellent.

    A lovely restaurant, beautiful decor and the friendly welcome started with our professional greeting. The food was delicious. This place is a real gem. My husband and I are Spanish speakers so it was very heartening to see a number of Spanish diners-always a good sign

    Taster menu, an absolute exquisite and served by fantastic staff, not only making you feel extremely welcome but ensuring the food 'journey' was truly special...would recommend this restaurant to anyone and would strongly suggest the taster to discover food that you probably wouldn't choose direct from a la carte menu!....and all for real value for money!
