    Due to work commitments, Valentine's day had to be rearranged which isn't a problem in our world. We had looked for places to eat on Google and this place just kept on coming up. Service was spot on and the food was exemplary, far better than the reviews, which said the food was very good. We decided to go for the spinach croquettes as advised and wasn't disappointed in the slightest. We also had the cod,Spanish omelette, chicken croquettes and the spinach and chickpea special. Would we go again??? Hell YES!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Visited this restaurant in Feb and the food was amazing. Friendly little place, with nice welcoming staff. Heater on in the restaurant, little bricks with dates on from when people visited. We got the tapas and had prawns which were incredible!! Definitely our favourite dish, the sauce was sooooo tasty! We then had white bait, mussels, vegetarian platter. All sorts of tasty treats! The food was honestly incredible, Manchega is about an hours drive from where we’re from but honestly this restaurant would make me inclined to visit Ripon again. Get the dulce de leche pancakes because they’re heaven!!! Perfect, delicious food! That actually fills you up!

    Second visit, 6 months after our first was just as good. Staff were welcoming and polite, good banter without being over done or artificial. Food speaks for itself. Delicately flavoured, appropriate portions and good value. Can highly reccomend the mussels, whitebait, meatballs, the meat & cheese platters. Also enjoyed the specials, particularly the brie... I’m a total cheese-a-holic and never in my life have I had Brie like this! Light, airy to an almost mouse like consistency, and wrapped in a delicate tempura batter... alongside the preserve it was like a tasty little cloud!!! In terms of value and service ... £100 fed 6 people (with booze!) to the point of bursting. Individual dishes were delivered at a steady pace, not even close to rushed (despite appologies from the staff for the quick pace due to it being valentines weekend!), and the atmosphere in the restaurant led to tables reccomending dishes to try. Full compliments both to the chefs, and to the front of house team. I’m picky ... a bad meal will put me off a place permanently and so far, we have had 2 exceptionally brilliant visits, and will definately be back for more!

    Popped in after a recommendation from The Old Deanery Hotel. What a night! Fabulous food, fabulous company and fabulous service. Devine tapas, excellent wine, and our fellow diners were an absolute hoot. All this would make for a perfect evening, but it was topped off with Monty Python and Faulty Towers quotes. What more can you hope for on a Wednesday night. I will certainly visit again, and thoroughly recommend you do too.

    Visited Manchega by chance as part of a business trip away. Great little restaurant, with a great host kept us entertained whilst serving up various tapas delicacies. Would definitely come back again if in the area.

    What a lovely little restaurant the food was lovely and drinks no overly priced and staff very friendly. The only small complaint was that we were sitting down stairs near the door so draughty, next time we would ask for a table upstairs but great find

    We were recommended Manchega and weren’t disappointed. One of the best tapas I’ve had outside Spain. The prawns in garlic were amazing, great pig cheeks, yummy chicken in mustard sauce, obviously fantastic potato bravas. Which we lived close by as I would be there all the time

    Booked Manchega easily through social media. Made to feel very welcome immediately on arrival. Staff were very attentive and extremely helpful. The quality of the tapas was just exceptional. We loved each mouthful. The sangria was perfect - just the right combination of flavors. A hidden gem in Ripon. Definitely recommend and we will certainly be back.

    Been several times now and never fails to deliver - delicious tapas and good Spanish wine make a perfect combination. All tastes catered for, we always choose a variety of dishes and share them around and always a warm welcome!

    We made a very late enquiry for a New Years Eve meal and consequently could only get an early evening booking, but we're very glad that we did! The tapas were exceptionally good: we had six dishes between us, and while the baked camembert almost defeated us we bravely soldiered on to have desserts too. Richard is an amusing host, if a little disorganised - but this somehow added to the charm of the evening. Highly recommended!

    A wonderful venue for an informal evening out with friends. Thank you for being there. Tapas absolutely great, really tasty, and the service was good, efficient and friendly with a cosy atmosphere and a relaxed and very cordial host. Lots of smiles and a real touch of Spain in the heart of Ripon. Go and try it out!

    My husband and I went to celebrate my birthday meal. It was our first visit and definitely won’t be our last. We pre booked and a good job we did, as it was full, which shows how popular it is. The restaurant is very small but has a lovely ambience. We saw the tapas going out and we thought that is not going to fill us. By tapas number 4 we were filling. The Tapas were full of flavour and very delicious. I also had the churros with chocolate dipping sauce which was amazing 😋😋 the service, was friendly and efficient. We were very happy customers when we left 🥰

    Really delicious home made food in a very relaxed environment. Couldn't have been better. Very European atmosphere on a dark December night. Loved it. Can't wait for it to be open during the day as well as would certainly encourage visits to Ripon.

    Everything was perfect from the tapas to the puddings.We were well looked after and not rushed in any way . The food was very tasty and varied with enough choice for my vegetarian diet. Just could have done with a little more warmth in there by the end of the evening I needed my coat!
