Offering artisan British cuisine in the heart of Manchester, Grafene champions both brilliant local produce, and the city’s rich heritage. Dine surrounded by edgy industrial design features and glossy tiled walls, and watch chefs at work in the open kitchen.

Along with a refined tasting menu and gourmet Sunday roasts, the Grafene menu is filled with creative yet crowd-pleasing dishes. Sample the likes of halibut with cauliflower and crispy chicken skin, or pork cheek & loin with black pudding, cabbage and apple. For dessert, indulge in blueberry parfait with peach, basil & pecan, or enjoy up to 10 premium British cheeses.

Both classic and signature cocktail mixes are shaken at the lively Grafene bar, and a list of speciality gins features the finest cherry-picked botanical-based bottles. Afternoon teas consist of the classic sandwiches and scones, as well as tarts, financiers and macarons.

Found on King Street, Grafene restaurant in Manchester also boasts a parasol-lined al fresco terrace. Find Oxford Road Train Station a 10-minute walk away.

    Fantastic place. Lovely staff, food and decor. Will be going again in the near future.

    Starters were delicious, mains and wine, and the 2 course deal was worth the money

    A pleasant surprise in the Manchester world of Student food and Emperors new clothes . Well cooked and great flavours. I might even give up chips for the fried slivers of Cauli. Only one thing , warm them plates a fraction more.

    Lovely ambiance
    Friendly staff but short staffed - waited 2 courses for a drink to come after ordering
    Lovely interesting menu
    Very small portion of gnocchi needed something crisp or brittle as it was quenelle of ricotta with soft tomato
    Lovely cooked steaks
    Excellent peppercorn
    Need more variety choice of sides
    Portions on very small size compared to steaks
    Understand menu and concept but to be hungry after 2 course was disappointing- can still be a la carte but slightly more on plate
    ( I know exactly the comments that will create in kitchen!). But we did have to sportsmen with us
    Presentation was the best I've seen in Manchester - better than M H and Midland and very well thought out
    Beautiful ingredients
    And the greatest consome starter ever
    But too small portions inc tartare

    Our second visit to Grafene. Lovely staff. Good cocktails and excellent starters. Unfortunately this time the main course had to be sent back. The pork was tough and the flavours just didn't work together. This was handled very well by the waiters and the restaurant manager. However when you end up eating separately and paying top end prices it does make you wonder whether to risk it again.

    Second visit, fantastic food, again, this time from the al a carte menu (previously had the tasting menu). Standard of cooking was excellent, beautifully presented plates of food for each course.
