Another one of Didsbury's hidden Gems, a nice cosy first class restaurants. Good food which is creative and can a bit on the pricey side but it's still value for money . Nice and intimate surroundings

Visited today for Saturday lunch and had the special lunchtime menu. Three courses for £12.50. Absolutely wonderful food, I had the black pudding with poached egg starter followed by the lamb bellies. The presentation, service and most of all flavour were really good. I really didn't need to eat the chocolate bread and butter pudding but I didn't let that... More

We had a wonderful lunch today at Jem & I. King prawns in chilli and butter were gorgeous then I had cod in a mornay sauce with spinach and delicious perfectly cooked vegetables. It was slow to come but that was the pace we wanted to eat at today as we had lots to time to sit and chat and... More

Visiting Manchester and on a Saturday night had not booked anywhere, stumbled across this place which happened to have one table free for my wife and I. Busy but quick and friendly service, small 'specials' menu was excellent. All courses were interesting and very well presented. Staff very good indeed. Extremely good value at just over £80 with wine (I... More

Been here a few times with close friends and family. Always a treat to come and eat here. Friendly staff, wonderful service and amazing food. Good choices on the menu, They even still make the pork belly the original way for my friend who introduced us to the place. Please but a lamb dish in the next menu :-)

I'm a fan of a bargain but I also LOVE good food. The early evening menu at Jem & I is the best of both!! Despite having lived here for 6 years this month has seen my first visit here and I've already been back twice! The food is outstanding, I'm still dreaming of the fish and chips, the chicken...

It was great to return to the refurbished Jem & I. The food was great and there was good service. A great mix of French, Italian and Greek dishes. The chicken skewers were delicious.

We have been going to this place for their lunch deal on and off for around 3 years now. The food has always been at least good, and more often than not excellent. They have their stalwart dishes, but are always offering something new. Today I had lamb belly in rosemary cream with flagelot beans. It was just stunning. In... More

we went to Jem & I to celebrate my 40th and we had a great evening. Menu was great, service was good and the wine & fizz flowed. I particularly enjoyed my main hake with well cooked vegetables and my dessert was great. We have decided to go back on Christmas Day for lunch with our friends. Would recommend and... More
