Aubaine

Aubaine brings contemporary French sophistication to Manchester. You get a real sense of the French Riviera with its beautifully chic, highly relaxing all-day dining experience. The light and airy space is perfect on a sunny day and the stylish touches; potted plants, patterned tiles and vintage trunks make your surroundings all the more appealing.

The French at The Midland

This restaurant was the first in the country to receive a Michelin star. It continues to build its reputation for great food and richly refined surroundings so is well worth a visit for something suitably French and delicious. Rumour has it, that Posh and Becks shared their first date here, so it's not without a touch of celebrity glamour.

ALMOST FAMOUS BURGERS

Hailed the best burger in Manchester, Almost Famous is definitely an experience. Off the beaten track, it can be found in the Northern Quarter in an unassuming office building with high reaching stairs and padlocked doors. Confident in its secretiveness, its motto is "No Press, No Photography, No Bloggers, No Ketchup...everything else goes". Beware: its juice is potent.
