Very pleasant evening

Lovely food, great atmosphere , good service. My only complaint is that the tables are too close together, but did not spoil the evening.

Booked a table for our wedding anniversary meal and were not disappointed. From the moment we stepped in the Manager could not have been more attentive and accommodating. The waitress friendly and most pleasant. After Gin and Tonics in the bar we were shown to our table after being allowed to take our time and not rushed. We have been... More

Called in for a meal on a Tuesday evening without a reservation and was not disappointed, as food was excellent. Called here a few years ago on a busy Sunday and after a terrible meal vowed never to go back, however, following recommendations from friends I wanted to give it another try and I was impressed. My partner had the... More

just had a really wonderful meal at Jem&I. Haven't been for a long time, but so glad I did. With so many mediocre places around, its lovely to eat a really well executed, delicious meal in elegant attractive surroundings right in the middle of Didsbury.

Nice little restaurant hidden away from Wilmslow road. People always seem to walk past this place and not bother checking it out. It really deserves more credits than other Didsbury eateries. Food is beautiful made and well cooked. I recommend the Sunday lunch which is a reasonable priced menu. I really enjoyed the sharing rib-eye steak (on the normal menu)... More

Went out with my parents for a very nice meal. Bargain price as we stuck to the early evening menu. Food was very good and presented very well. Great atmosphere and service. Good selection of drinks and there was even parking.

We had the duck and seabass for mains and the scallops and bacon and the gravalax and avocado. All were superbly presented and tasted even better. I really love scallops and usually will choose them if on offer. These were superb. Service was efficient and friendly. A little bit snug on the seating where we were but excellent venue all...

I've been here a few times in the past and still like the food and the atmosphere. We chose the lunchtime express menu which is very good value (£10 for two courses) but service was very slow. It didn't matter, as I was catching up with old friends, but if you are really in a hurry it might be a... More

We went here after a recommendation from some friends. We were travelling from the airport the next day so as a stop over the night before we took the opportunity to go. We were not disappointed! We did the early bird menu which was like £20 for 3 courses. This is incredible value. To be honest I like to think... More
