Harry Ramsden’s Castlemore Retail Park

Reviewed By sjb90 - Manchester, United Kingdom

This is the best branch of Harry Ramsden's that I've visited -- and handily (or dangerously!) it's just down the road from where I live.
I've never sat in the restaurant, but pop into the takeaway section about once a week. Their food is cooked really well, the shop is always spotless even on the busiest of days, and the people who work there are friendly and efficient.
As another reviewer says below, Diane and Dan in particular make a great team, and are a real credit to the business.

Las Iguanas - Trafford Centre

Walk through the doors of Las Iguanas and find yourself transported to Latin America, full of rich, vibrant colours, quirky features and custom-made wooden mosaic tables made especially for the restaurant from sustainable woods in Brazil. Each restaurant is unique and the staff love bringing unusual things back from their travels, ranging from large lobster sculptures to giant drums. The philosophy of Las Iguanas is to serve delicious and authentic Latin American food and drink in an environment which evokes the very best of Latin life. With recipes dating back to the 16th century, the food successfully fuses native Latin American Indian, Spanish, Portuguese and African influences. Working hard to ensure that everything comes from the best possible source, Las Iguanas is proud of its fresh GM free food and top quality ingredients.

Reviewed By RoadEnder65 - Merseyside, United Kingdom

Really nice restaurant on the ground floor of the food hall. Food is an eclectic mix of their version of South American tapas and standard Mexican dishes, nearly all having a veggie option, so good news. The staff are very enthusiastic, explaining the dishes and recommending cocktails. Admittedly, it was a Wednesday lunchtime so the restaurant wasn’t overly busy, but it was nice that the staff were so attentive. Cocktails were on offer at 2 for the price of 1, which made the whole experience even better. Portion sizes were big enough to allow sharing and all arrived in good time to be enjoyed together. Well done, it was great, we will be back soon.

All of our wines come from our award-winning family vineyard in Sicily where 3 generations of our family have produced wine. This allows us to ensure the highest quality from the grape to the glass.

Reviewed By StuartHelen - Rossendale, United Kingdom

We revisited this superb restaurant with our friend Chris and was given a lovely welcome from Roberto, we took his recommendations and had a garlic pizza with cheese and blue cheese as an appetiser, beautiful! Chris had the meatball starter which looked lovely while Helen and I shared a garlic mushroom in blue cheese sauce, gorgeous!Then Chris and I went for the Sicilian Beef dish which was absolutely delicious all finished off with a house red blend that went down too well. Will definitely be coming back the next we visit our friend.

Vesuvio

Reviewed By Manchestertwo - Manchester

We were staying at the Novotel down the road and booked a table for two on the strength of the trip advisor reviews. The food was really good with excellent pasta.
Really busy but the service was good if not the friendliest, but the atmosphere was incredibly noisy, more like a pub when the football is on than a nice Italian restaurant!

Northern Soul Grilled Cheese

Reviewed By GeorgeHCS - Southampton, United Kingdom

On a visit to Manchester we just happened by this wonderful place and shared a pulled pork and macaroni cheese Sandwich. Crispy on the outside and oozing with three types of cheese within, this might just have been the tastiest Sandwich I’ve ever had. I liked the crunchy dill pickle and cole slaw that came with it, and a root beer rounded out the experience for this displaced American. Oh, and there was an Oreo brownie, too. Certainly the best food I had in my four days in Manchester and I would head straight back on my next visit.
