Which restaurants have our readers been visiting in March?

What are the hottest fifty restaurants in Manchester? 

We have a way of finding out. It’s called Confidential Guides and it's a powerful and infinitely useful tool for finding 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

Every month, we will publish 50 of the top restaurants most visited on ConfidentialGuides.com. The restaurants you, the people, are most interested in. We’ve been watching the stats closely and are excited to show you the results.
