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.

    Great restaurant. Accommodating to our newborn. Food was served in a timely manner and was very well prepared. The lobster risotto was excellent, very flavorful. Also tried the tasting menu which was wonderful.

    Great food, service and atmosphere. Enjoyed 2 tapas each + pan con tomate y allijolli Full range of Spanish coffees including my old favorite and increasingly popular with cyclists - un cortado, beautifully served ( as was the food). 3 of us sat very comfotably in a booth, having a catch up. Enjoyed having a drink at the bar before. It wasn't a cheap night but we did have wine too and tarte de almendras. Great value for money and very keen to return soon.

    Really enjoyed eating at La Bandera. We ordered 6 starter dishes as tapas to share, which made a very satisfying meal. All dishes were lovely, and brought to the table 3 at a time in the perfect sequence. Particularly enjoyed the calamari, and the king prawns, though the slow cooked pigs cheeks were also delicious. Great service and ambience too
