Lovely to be back at Hispi, unfortunately it seems the main courses were very salty. Maybe the sauce reduction Had gone too far?

The service was charming and knowledgeable and the kitchen staff had a sense of humour always important when under stress from a busy restaurant.

First time to the restaurant and very pleasantly surprised. We had to move the reservation and the lady who took the call was really lovely and accommodating. When we got there the great service continued and the food was really tasty. Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Clean, well decorated and great tasting food at a reasonable price. What’s not to like? We will definitely be back soon. Thank you.

Really nice resturant! Amazing service and food
We were sat next to window and were in bright sun and quite hot but that’s the only fault !!

Amazing roast

I would recommend Hispi for its food but its service was very disappointing. We spent a considerable amount but were not attended to. The person looking after us was unhelpful and discourteous.

Great customer service this evening. We did note that portion sizes of the main meal was smaller than it has been on all our previous visits (and many times sampling this one particular dish). The restaurant gradually became noisier and noisier as the evening went on, very much so when one particularly shouty table of 6 came into the restaurant around 9pm (a competition for attention - sad). We left earlier than planned without coffees due to the noise....

Outstanding meal. The service was excellent and the restaurant made a real effort for my friend’s birthday, providing a complimentary dessert plate and “Happy Birthday” in chocolate writing. Wonderful experience!

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.
