6 restaurants taking market fresh fish to another level2 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 Heaton Moor
The Easy Fish Co. Heaton Moor
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.
Book Now Chorlton
“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.
Book Now Ancoats
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
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 there’s usually a bank of photographers outside to prove the point.
