    Food and service up to the usual Elite standard- exceptional. That gravy…. Other level! Only negative- very harsh acoustics and table nearest to pass was deafening at times and conversation difficult.

    Unfortunately the food wasn’t really that great, especially considering the cost. They managed to make a gorgeous looking piece of lamb completely tasteless! Wine, service and atmosphere was lovely though. xx

    My wife and I went to Hispi for an anniversary meal and it didn’t disappoint - from the air conditioned temperature (not too cold) through to the crème brûlée at the end. The waiter / waitress was good and the food tasty, all arriving at a suitable speed. I would definitely recommend.

    If you are looking for some good tasty food that has been expertly cooked and presented by a small team of enthusiastic chefs then look no further than HISPI. This little gem nestled in the heart of Didsbury is one of our favourite restaurants. There is always something special on offer to excite your tastebuds along with the extensive menu and there is a good quality wine list available. The price is probably at the higher range of our budget for eating out but we have always appreciated the quality on offer and are happy to pay when it is this good.

    I booked for Sunday lunch again, having enjoyed it so much last time. I couldn't fault a thing - great service and an imaginative menu, prepared and presented to perfection. The focaccia is always a treat in itself, and it's nice that this is provided as an extra. I started with beetroot salad with ricotta (the sticky walnuts are divine!), then had crispy-fried courgettes for the main - this came with Old Winchester cheese, tomatoes, hazelnuts, and lemon thyme and garlic butter, a burst of fresh, tangy flavours that was absolutely delicious. All washed down with one of the recommended paired wines (a white Burgundy) followed by strawberry pavlova with melon sorbet. Fabulous!

    We were disappointed that a selected main dish and a bottle of wine of the month were unavailable. This led to guests having to hurriedly choose an alternative dish which then rather confused the wine choices. The noise of the busy restaurant would also make me think twice about booking for an evening again. Having said that we thought the waiter very pleasant and things eventually settled and calmed down - especially as the restaurant emptied. The actual food was excellent.

    I've been meaning to visit Hispi for ages and finally made a booking with a friend. The food was absolutely superb! Delicious. Service was excellent - friendly, attentive but not obtrusive. The decor was lovely with some light background music. Tables nicely spaced apart so we weren't too close to other diners. And free parking right outside the door (after 7pm)!

    What a little gem of a restaurant. Having two people in our table of 3 with dietary requirements, the staff couldn’t do more to accommodate us. The standard, quality and taste of the food was excellent. The service was attentive, not too much, just right! I travelled from West Yorkshire and already plan to return next month with family. Fantastic experience and thank you to the team there for my brothers graduation treat!

    We went to Hispi to celebrate my PhD graduation. I couldn’t have asked for more! The food was incredible, the waiting staff kept our drinks topped up, and we didn’t have to wait at all for any of the three courses we ordered to arrive. What I particularly loved about Hispi was the atmosphere and ambience. There was no loud music - vital if you want to be able to speak to the people you are eating with! The staff at Hispi even went the extra mile to make me a ‘Congratulations’ dessert :’) It really was such a special day, and celebrating my graduation at Hispi couldn’t have been better! Thank you to all the staff at Hispi for such a lovely evening!

    I (mostly vegan) went with my (omnivore) boyfriend, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that they had a separate vegan menu. He ordered the pig's head croquettes and the cod, and I ordered the salt baked pineapple followed by the tempura courgette. When our starters arrived we realised that they were pretty much the same - the dish had clearly been designed with the pig's head croquettes in mind, in terms of the acidity and sweetness of the pineapple but the absence of these in the vegan version basically made the starter into a weird, acidic dessert that was a chore to eat. To charge the same price for these two is just outrageous, when my starter had nothing else added to make up for the croquettes and sauce. The recommended wine pairing was ok, but the chilli overpowered it and made the wine almost fizz in an unpleasant way. Again, maybe this would have worked with the croquette dish, but didn't at all with the vegan "version". The tempura courgette dish was perfectly fine if not very elegant, and according to my boyfriend the cod was perfectly cooked, but the huge amount of raw sliced courgette that came with it whilst pretty were texturally quite unpleasantly powdery and far too abundant. If a restaurant is going to have a separate vegan menu then it needs to be thought through, with dishes actually designed to be vegan, rather than just removing elements to make them vegan, which makes it feel like an afterthought.

    We are frequent diners with Elite bistros. Hispi was final venue visited from a purchase of tour vouchers bought last year as part of crowd funder. Was not disappointed!! 😄 Food, as always exceptional, and staff and venue spot on. Bit out of the way for us, but would not rule out a further visit. Excellent 👌
