Excellent choice for all types of dietary choices.
The smoked lamb was beautifully cooked but too smokey.
Very friendly and helpful staff
Can't wait for it to re-open

Delicious food and wonderful service. A Didsbury gem. The featherblade beef 'signature' dish always delivers and the beetroot and walnuts with cheese is superb.

As always Hispi was a treat whether we are going for the great value Supper menu or as a treat at the weekend. Knowledgeable and friendly staff, stunning food and a great atmosphere. The last dinner out before 2nd lockdown and it didn’t disappoint!

Absolutely delicious meal! I’ve been a few times now and it never disappoints. Love that each dish comes with a recommended wine pairing. Good value for money and such a treat. I had the featherblade for main and the red wine with it was heaven. Can’t wait to come back again soon.

As usual, the food was outstanding. This time, however, we had a break with tradition and went for the glazed ham hock to share instead of the featherblade; we weren't disappointed - it was absolutely fabulous. It fell off the bone, as it should, and the accompanying choucroute was just right.

A perfect birthday celebration lunch.
Covid precautions observed. Friendly, efficient staff. The food was delicious, well-presented and had something a bit different.
Music was a bit dodgy.

Not the best position watching the dishwasher being filled and emptied but the food made up for it.
Ambience lacking but will put that down to the spacing required.
Service good ,not rushed between courses.

Hispi is a real gem of a restaurant. Beautiful food, executed well.
The bistro menu is also excellent value for money.
Personal faves were the cod loin and the accompanying tapenade, which was delicious.
One of the best none Michelin starred restaurants in Manchester!

This restaurant has given the best first impression. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly, the food was delicious and very well presented.
Very chilled and relaxed atmosphere.
Prices are very reasonable, less than £40 for a 3 course set menu!
100% recommend the crème brûlée, I enjoyed it that much that the other half wasn't happy not to be offered a spoonful :)

Also check out the invisible fries, great thing to do!

We will defiantly visit again.
Thank you

Always so reliable here, the food is excellent and there's variety and choice even on the limited menu in operation at the moment. Well-chosen wine list, with some excellent recommendations for the dishes.

Such excellent service too, friendly, efficient and chatty but not over-familiar or intrusive.

We had an email saying that the restaurant was reopening and booked a meal as soon as we could.

We weren't disappointed, the food was as good as ever, as was the service.

The staff obviously take a great deal of care to ensure that the restaurant is COVID-19 secure, and we felt extremely safe.

Glad to see you back!

Hispi is still our favourite restaurant in the manchester area. The combinations of flavours are fantastic and there is a seasonal and regional element to some of the dishes . The menu changes regularly which is a big plus if you plan to come more than once.
