We recently visited La Bandera for my daughter’s 18th. The staff were friendly and attentive. We ate off the early lunch menu which was excellent value for money. The food was delicious 😋 and I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for somewhere nice to eat whilst out in Manchester. We look forward to going back soon, thank you La Bandera 🍺

Two of the dishes were quite nice and the service was very good. However there were 3 dishes that were really disappointing

Food was not mind blowing to use an euphemism Service was rushed White wine was warm and it did not get better after changing the bottle The waitress made an effort to enthuse us but there is only so much you can paint if you have no colours

A little disappointed- not awful but just underwhelming . A tiny table , all but one of the tapas dishes appeared at the same time. Only two of the dishes were worth writing about Staff were not overly knowledgeable and I felt that it was a triumph of style over substance.

Really knowledgable about gluten free options. Food delicious and wine delicious. Wasn’t as lively as normal in there on Friday but it was a horrible wet November night which might have put some odd! But still lively and lovely service x

Another delicious meal at La Bandera with good helpful friendly service. We tried a couple of different tapas - both excellent, in addition to our favourites. We've already decided when we're returning. Thank you.
