Went in the Printworks looking for a place to eat. Chiquitos was an ideal choice with excellent service and food. Had a great meal and a pleasant time with friendly staff. Would visit again.

Don't be misled by some of the other reviews. The Printworks is a collection of restaurants & a cinema. Some of the other reviews are actually focusing too much on an individual restaurant. The Printworks successful in my opinion tries to give the feeling of being in a street outside whilst really being inside. It can be a bit disconcerting... More

I have visited this place many times over the years and had some good nights out here. One of the things I do like here is the doormen don't descriminate against letting men into bars as some areas do and generally are polite. There are a few bars and restaurants to chose from, so a number of options available. I... More

Always a good place to start any night out with good security on site with keep the place feeling safe. To be fair it does attract a it's fair share of "chavs" but it is a city centre venue.

I went to Yates Printworks with friends today. The service was slow and the food ordered was disappointing for several of our group. We have visited Yates Portland Steeet in Manchester which was far superior.

Popped in for lunch before going to see James Bay. Three of our first choice meals were 'off the menu' because they had a busy weekend, it was Wednesday, maybe need to revisit ordering enough stock! When our meals arrived they were pretty ordinary and lukewarm. Not really enjoyable all in all.

Went a couple of times on a recent visit to Manchester with friends and thought it was a great place for food/drinks! 2 for 1 cocktails all day everyday in Yates was the highlight.
