About La Bandera
Situated in the heart of Manchester and considered as one of the best Spanish restaurants in the UK, La Bandera is a family run restaurant inspired by by the beautiful sights, aromas and tastes of our homeland, the Canary Islands, our chef Ruben del Villar (Tenerife) continuously sources the best local and Spanish ingredients to create our unique menu.
We went on a Tuesday night. The staff and atmosphere was great. The food was great though it was on the smaller side especially the lamb sliders ; 2 small ones on a plate no potatoes or a little salad for £8 I thought it was too expensive ; chicken with mustard was a bit too sweet otherwise me and my partner enjoyed our anniversary. Thanks to our waiter (sorry forgot his name) he was great.
A perfect service and luncheon experience, highly authentic and very lovely cuisine. Superb!
Very satisfied with the food . The tapas were good and good value within the lunch time menu . The rice dish was a little pricey at £16. A little disappointed as the cheaper bottles of red wine ( Garnacha) were unavailable and the waiter did not suggest the house red but offered a much more expensive option . Incidentally we tried it later as an extra glass and it was delicious. The waiter was ok but not particularly friendly. I would not rate the restaurant as number 3 in Manchester in the tapas section .
Nice food but not much of it! At £8 for Gambas and £9 for pulpo, I would have expected more than 4 prawns and a couple of small strips of pulpo.
Excellent service . Food was outstanding. Will definitely dine there again
Always great food and service here but their February offer is fantastic
This was the second time here & I was I was very disappointed. I brought along my parents because I had said oh lovely the place,service & food was previously. Only this time, we walked in and there were dirty plates left along the bar area, waiters eating at the bar the greeting and atmosphere was dull. Once we were seated we were served by a lovely male waiter who was very engaging and helpful, half way through serving this changed to a miserable female waitress who had no idea at all. She stood staring at us all the way through the meal and constantly asked if we needed another drink. The food was average, not as good as previous visit. Two of the party has purchased a groupon deal (6tapas for £24), when the bill arrived it turned out to be a lot more expensive, an extra £80 per couple. Our previous visit didn’t come to this amount and we had much more to drink. We left the restaurant dissatisfied and disappointed. I will not recommend and will not be returning.
Really enjoyed our meal and staff were friendly,polite and knowlegable about the menu. We will definitely return.
Hi we came on sat night for my birthday meal with another couple , after reading all the fabulous comments and reviews on trip advisor we were looking forward to it. We ordered the mix artisan bread basket with some alioli which came out just the same plain crusty bread which was was very dry and not as stated in the menu. We also felt really rushed at the table. Overall the ladies were lovely who served us. Many thanks

Only complaint is that 3 of the dishes were luke warm Chorizo and wine.Stuffed peppers and Squid dish
Fantastic food with great friendly service. The restaurant was just struggling to keep warm on a very cold day. Would definitely come again.
Went for the taster menu with wine flight option in November, it was so good went back again on Sunday. Fantastic food, wine, service and great value for money.
Best Spanish restaurant in Manchester without a doubt! Excelent service, and wonderful food!
Delicious food, fantastic service, great atmosphere and lovely staff.
A wonderful find. Food and service were exceptional. We will be back.
Excellent food and service. Short wait at the bar. A little noisy. Would return.
Lovely restaurant with gorgous food, service was efficient and staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Just one small problem was that it felt very cold, I would have been more comfortable if I had kept on my coat!!! Obviously it was very cold outside but did not get warm the whole time I was there approx two hours. I would definitely book again though, food & drink 5 star
Fabulous food, wine and service to match Couldn’t fault anything We will be back soon Thankyou
