Had one of the most delicious plates of food i've eaten in a long time, Grilled Sea Bass (with very crispy skin) on chorizo and saffron risotto. Really good service and a brilliant price, 2 meals and 4 drinks for less than £40

Booked a table last minute on Friday night & it was a great little spot. The service was very quick with food and drinks. Burger was one of the tastiest I've ever eaten. The fries aren't the best standard but that's a company choice rather than how they were cooked. Overall, I would visit again.

This place is great! Friendly atmosphere, great staff and service and the food was great value and top notch. Try the house special steak, you won't be disappointed. Nice location, tucked away from Cross Street and just a nice place to drop into for a drink, snack and a chat. Will become a regular haunt when I visit Manchester in... More

Been to the grinch a few times, always leave happy. Visited the grinch on Saturday with a party of 12, service was friendly and attentive (but not too attentive which can be annoying) great value for money, lovely food and nice drinks. We all had a fab time.

Booked after reading Tripadvisor reviews! The food was good and the atmosphere was perfect for our family night out. The menu wasn't huge, but had a good selection of food. We had steak & frites and pizzas which were all good. If your looking for some pre - theatre food, this would be a good choice. My only small criticism... More

The places I go back to tend be the ones where I enjoy the ambience and service as much if not more than the food. The food at Grinch is very bistro and always good. Especially the pizzas. The buzz and service is very friendly and i just relax and chat with my guests without caring about anything.

Very warm welcome by some great staff, the menu isn't that big but the food was lovely and the portion sizes sat just right. We went on a Friday and they had an offer on for a bottle of prosecco for £15 which is very reasonable for a restaurant in the centre of manchester. We even left with a 10%... More

When we visit Manchester we stop here for a drink and a light snack. It has a nice atmosphere and a good menu with plenty of food and drink to choose. The cocktails are particularly good and competitively priced. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
