About Bouzouki By Night

Dear diners, please be aware that non-Quandoo vouchers cannot be used in conjunction with online booking. If you wish to use non-Quandoo vouchers, please contact the restaurant directly.

Hidden down beneath Princess Street in Manchester city centre, Bouzouki By Night has slowly and surely made itself into a Manchester institution. 25 years since they opened their doors, their unique combination of Greek-themed dinner, drinks and dancing keeps the punters coming back. What they lack in sun and sand they make up for in atmosphere, and the plates just keep coming and coming – whether you eat off them or smash them is your choice to make...

Further Information

Manchester’s city centre culinary scene offers a world tour of food, from the Indian extravaganza that is the Curry Mile to the neon and noodles of Chinatown. Few places though, can claim to go the whole nine yards of cultural integration as Bouzouki By Night. They take their set menu of Greek mezze classics – souvlaki, gigantes, dolmades and the like – and serve it up to all comers in their basement restaurant below Princess Street. After the meal, the band comes out and the chairs get pushed to the side, allowing the sated diners to strut their stuff to traditional Greek music until late into the night.

The dancing and music may seem like a gimmick, but to the people in charge of Bouzouki By Night – and the hungry dancing diners of Manchester – it seems to be the perfect fit. Their menu is based around sharing, in the traditional Greek way, and the dishes arrive at the table in stages over an hour or so, allowing the wine and conversation to flow freely throughout the evening. Manchester city centre has some po-faced purveyors of fine foods, but this certainly isn’t one of them. Bouzouki By Night serves up some superb Greek cuisine, but the food is just part of the experience. Book a table now to avoid disappointment.

Fantastic Night! The food was perfect, entertainment was spot on! The waiters were very tentative and explained what each dish was clearly. There are no faults at all. Thank you for a great night!

Fabulous, food, entertainment and such caring happy staff, I have many food allergies and they were brilliant, I did not have to worry about it, I was in constant touch with the restaurant before our visit and they were nothing but excellent and very attentive to my needs. My daughters 30th birthday celebration was therefore fantastic. Bouzouki By Night had been recommended to me and I recommend it to anybody looking for a great night out

Very well organised and lovely friendly staff. There are 3 courses which do come separately. We had a huge selection of starters and didn't realise there was a main or a pudding so pace your self there's lots of food! Food was fresh and lovely and catered exceptionally well for my vegetarian needs and partners fish allergy. Very authentic greek taverna and it smells just like being in Greece. Entertainment started about 10.30 and was a brilliant way to end the evening. We will definitely be back with friends.

Food was very good. Staff very pleasant and efficient. They explained all the dishes as they were served. Quickley shown to our seats and drinks served straight away. Lovely restaurant with typical Greek décor. All that was missing was the sound of the sea. Music and dancing followed. Lovely atmosphere. We had a very enjoyable evening and will definitely return and tell our family and friends. Thank you.

This was a brilliant, cultural restaurant that I would recommend to anyone. The food was delightful as part of the Groupon offer and left my partner and I very full. My only complaints was that our first table was rocky so we moved however at the next table I was very cold and had to put my coat on. The staff were pleasant but do not give ideal customer service in my opinion. Overall the atmosphere, food and service was good and for the price I paid I couldn't complain about anything else.

The restaurant has great food and very welcoming and friendly staff. It probably wouldn't be the first option for a quiet date as it gets pretty loud, but if you're up for some dancing and a bit of fun you'll love it.

Staff made an effort to make the night fun with music and dancing later in the evening, food was good. Venue is quit small so you need to be early and get near to the dance floor, we ended up at the back and my partner felt cold until the dancing started.

Warm atmosphere, authentic food, friendly staff. Anyone who wanted to be involved was able to enjoy the Greek entertainment, which was light hearted and brought everybody together. Particularly good for group events
