“Surprisingly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

We went midweek recently and the vibe was very good - chilled out and laidback. The staff were attentive, the cocktails tasted good and the food was excellent for the price. The only downside was that there was a slight delay on one of our tapas dishes, but other than that it was very good indeed.

It is a shame that people in West Didsbury seem to think that the Met's crowded beer garden, average food and sky-high drinks prices makes for a more pleasant socialising experience than the one available at Verso.

“Georgeous Food - Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

I visited Verso on Friday with a group of friends - what a lovely surprise. This place is just a few hundred yards from the main bars and restaurants of Burton Rd, but do make sure you make the effort and try it. The food is absolutely gorgeous - the tapas were particularly good and the pizzas were lovely too. Granted it's not fine dining but it's not meant to be...it's just a great place for casual food with friends at great prices. The guy who does front of house took the time out to talk us through everything and it's obvious that these guys have a passion for seasonal and fresh ingredients. The portions were very generous and the drinks were good here too - they have a decent selection of wines and a good cocktail menu. Great bar with a big terrace outside. Good music too...I eat out a lot all over Manchester and I'll def be going here again.

“A Balearic vibe in the heart of West Didsbury!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012 via mobile

I have spent many a long afternoon at verso. I love sitting outside in the summer. It's a great place to socialise and the food is very good too. Veso has a really chilled vibe and that's why it's one of my favourites in West Didsbury.
