Which restaurants have our readers been visiting in December?

What are the hottest fifty restaurants in Manchester? 

We have a way of finding out. It’s called Confidential Guides and it launched back in August 2021 with a view to providing our readers with a powerful and infinitely useful tool to find the best places to eat, drink and be generally merry all across the north of England. There is an individual page for each restaurant with a description, buttons to book a table and tags to make searching easier. We also publish curated restaurant guides to give our readers inspiration.

The restaurant guide everyone's talking about

Our new Greater Manchester restaurant directory took off like a rocket and thousands of people every month now use it to decide where to eat, with over thousands of tables being booked as a result.

Every month, we will publish the top 50 most visited restaurants on ConfidentialGuides.com. The restaurants you, the people, are most interested in, the ones you’re choosing for celebrations and special events, the ones everybody is talking about. 

We’ve been watching the stats closely and are excited to show you the results.
