We heard all the hype and watched the tv show about Pinion and we’re dying to try the Featherblade Steak and the Pigs Cheek.
To be honest the Pigs Cheek was a little greasy and not a massive amount of flavour.
The featherblade was nice but not as good as the restaurant Four , next door.
Sorry , really wanted to love it. However we have been told that Sunday lunch is great so maybe we will give it a go.

A lovely restaurant tucked away in Didsbury village. It was our first visit and we were concerned that it might be full of trendies. We needn’t have worried. We were greeted warmly and show to our table immediately, despite being 15 minutes early. The service was excellent and the food was brilliant. The portion size was just right so that we had three courses without feeling stuffed. We also felt that with wine and drinks, it was really good value. Overall we thought it was one of the best meals we had had and we will certainly be returning.

I loved it, it would have been nice if there was a vegan option on the valentines menu, which is why I scored the food lower as I had to eat animal products which I don’t love, but as it was last minute booking I made an exception.

I thought the tortellini was way too rich for a main course, but as the only veggie thing I didn’t have a choice. It would have been perfect as a starter though.

The rest of the food was really lovely and the restaurant is nice to be in.

Service was fab, but did feel like we were being hurried through, food came before our aperitifs for instance and starters seconds after we’d finished the canapés or finished our g&t’s. I get that it’s valentines but it was spoiled a little bit by the mania of all the waiters Litterally running round to get through the work load... perhaps fewer covers next year, when you are paying £200 for a meal you want to take your time.

Hope you appreciate the feedback and we will def come again

We were restricted to the set price Valentine Day menu as the a la carte menu was unfortunately unavailable. The food was beautifully cooked but portion size was small. We consequently felt that the valentine day menu was overpriced.

An absolute gem of a restaurant. Friendly efficient staff giving perfect amount of attention.

Excellent set menu which is amazing value for money.

Highly recommend and it won’t be long before our next visit to Hispi or one of the other Elite Bistros.

Thank you for a great lunchtime treat.

This was the second visit for two of our party of three. Every bit as good as first visit. Delicious food with an emphasis on interesting vegetables and herbs and spices. I’ve never been a fan of custard tarts but am now a convert at least to Hispi ones. Service friendly and efficient. Will be back!

I didn't like the Sunday lunch menu. The roast potatoes and gravy with the beef were not very nice. The rhubarb crumble was lumpy and sour. Perhaps custard instead of the thimble of clotted cream would have helped.

I loved Hispi, particularly the cosy but contempary ambience. I did find it a little expensive though.
I would go again but it would be nice if there was some complimentary bread and the main courses could do with being a bit cheaper.

simply wonderful food and service. genuiniely struggled to find anything less than perfect. if absolutley pushed would say that the duck spring roll was a bit overstuffed with duck meaning that the roll was a bit "stodgy" and there was a lot of parmsan and truffle on the parmesan and truffle chips - i should really have guessed!. otherwise, highly recomended for everything. lovely place. if you havent been do go!

Lovely restaurant but very expensive for quite a casual setting. Food was excellent and high end but would say setting didn’t feel as special as food. Lovely food, enjoyable evening, just not wow enough to return with many mains £26+.

2 of us came on Saturday after recommendation. Excellent flavour in the marinated cod starter which we shared. The featherblade beef was truly delicious with great parmesan truffle chips, beetroot and kale. My husband had the pork chop which he enjoyed after scraping off the macha coating - perhaps the menu should say it is very spicy/peppery. My custard tart was to die for, I have never had such light tasty filling. Bill was disappointed with his rhubarb and custard Paris Brest and I have to agree the rhubarb was distinctly absent and the ice cream tasteless, the sweetness of the bun needing to be off-set by the piquancy of the rhubarb. We did give this feedback to the waitress, so haven't just saved it for on-line. However we had 2 alcoholic drinks, 1 starter, 2 mains and 2 desserts for £76 (excl tip) which we found good value for the quality of the ingredients

We had a wonderful early dinner (6.00 pm) on a Saturday evening. The environment was quiet but welcoming. The staff and service was excellent and warmingly informal. However, more than anything, the quality of the food was outstanding taken from a varied and interesting menu. A particular confession that the Rhubarb and Custard Paris-Brest was heavenly and a wonderful indulgence to me, who was experiencing Dry January and therefore missed out on the excellent wines!

One of my favourite places for first class food with an informal atmosphere. Took a group of visitors who eat out extensively. Food and service were first class, and guest told me it was one of the best meals he has eaten in a restaurant (and he eats out a lot).

Yes, i would recommend this place. Good food, well prepared and presented. I really appreciated the seasonal food on offer.
Nice wine list. How to go from good to great? Keep the wine glass full for guests, and refold the napkin when a guest leaves the table for the washrooms. But really, these are small things and we would certainly come back in a heartbeat :)

Food was beautiful but my soup was cold. I ordered duck which was a bit chewy and felt was a small portion of duck!
But tasted lovely!
