Where to look for single ladies in Manchester? Or where to take your soon-to-be-girlfriend in order to impress her? As most of our first dates are starting with eating out and, although old-fashioned, eating out is a great possibility to find a prospective partner, it is crucial to know the best places to eat or have a drink. So, let’s check out the best places for eating out in Manchester without further ado.


Manchester House


Since its opening in 2013 Manchester House’s popularity was constantly growing. This magical fusion of traditionalism and informal dinning continues to draw more and more people every year. Thanks to the vast array of dishes that will satisfy anyone’s palate and cozy atmosphere, Manchester House is a perfect place for your first date.


Moose Coffee

Where to pick a single girl? Easy, on 20 York Street where the chick Moose Coffee sits. Once a secret place for breakfast, Moose Coffee now a ultra-popular place where at peak hours you’d have to wait for some table to get free. The queue can well become a nice place to start a chat and pick someone interesting.


The French at Midland

The art deco-inspired dining room at The French is certainly a place to see and be seen. The modern British food, with an admirable reliance on local and garden-led produce, pays testament to a chef at the top of his game. Despite not securing that coveted tubby white-tyred star the French at Midland is quite a popular place among many. It is not the best place to pick a girl, but a nice place to have a dinner on your first date.



Clubbing and getting acquainted is something that goes hand in hand for quite a long time, but, fortunately or not, rave times are long lost. Although Manchester had lost quite missing club the Electric Chair, it had gained a diner that attracts a lot of people. The atmosphere at Volta is suitably cool, but never off-putting, and the food is majestic, especially considering the fact that diner’s chef was awarded “Chef of the Year” at the Manchester Food and Drink Festival Awards.



If you prefer Japanese food, you need to go straight ahead to Yuzu. Small, but perfectly formed, Yuzu is a slice of Japanese sanity among the cacophony of Manchester’s marvellous Chinatown. If the grilled sea bream is on the specials board – order it immediately. Considering the rave that this place had gained few years ago, booking is highly advised.


Almost Famous

Despite the name, the place is more than famous. The Mancunian burger boom was spearheaded by Almost Famous, there are two restaurants in the city. As of now Almost Famous remains at the cutting edge of meat heaven. Its menu getting some additions every year, and you should definitely try Good Morning America – a fry up in a bun, and definitely the Triple Nom, a double cheeseburger with pulled pork, coleslaw and redneck sauce.



If you or your lady is a vegetarian, Greens is a place to go. Vegetarian or not, this West Didsbury institution is always worth checking out. Greens makes a virtue of its magpie cuisine, unapologetically borrowing from flavoursome cooking all over the world.


Of course, these seven places for eating out is just a tip of iceberg of Manchester’s dining institutions, but now you clearly now where to take you single lady and where to pick one if you are still single.
