6 restaurants taking market fresh fish to another level

3 years ago

Some people can be slightly daunted by the prospect of a whole fish at the table, but there really is nothing like being presented with a whole roasted turbot or a plate of oysters to make an evening really special.

These restaurants cook turbot, trout and even tentacles to perfection. Using only the freshest and best quality ingredients to bring the taste of the sea to Manchester ‘sur mer’.

  • Book Now Levenshulme



    Once a stall at Levy Market, then a pop-up pizzeria above Fred’s Ale House, Cibus took baby steps to get to where it is today – a fully-fledged and much-praised Italian restaurant and bar on Levenshulme high street.

    The Easy Fish Co. Heaton Moor

    Restaurant - Modern British

    A quality fish restaurant this far inland has always been a difficult ask but The Easy Fish Co. Heaton Moor shows it can be done. It’s both fishmonger and restaurant and the no-nonsense, back-to-basics name is a little misleading in that there’s a lot more to this place than a choice of cod or haddock.

  • A dish served with a glass of wine at Oystercatcher - a seafood restaurant in Chorlton, Manchester.


    Restaurant - European

    “Doing lots of little things right” is a definition of perfection. And Oystercatcher – a simple seafood restaurant in Chorlton – is just that.
    The kitchen’s Inca grill is masterfully handled by co-owner Recep Canliisik, who churns out dishes such as char-grilled whole sea bream, and Tandoori-barbecued monkfish tail.

  • Fish dish at Street Urchin

    Street Urchin

    Restaurant - Modern British

    For Street Urchin, think less about raggedy kids hanging about Victorian mills (although it is on the edge of Ancoats) and more about seafood delicacies. Fish is plentiful on the menu at this English market diner, although meat gets a look-in too.

    San Carlo Manchester

    Restaurant - Italian

    San Carlo is Manchester’s most famous and, some say, best Italian restaurant. Run by the Distefano family, it’s said to have one of the largest turnovers in the UK. It’s also the place to be papped and you’ll sometimes see a bank of photographers outside to prove the point.
