More about Rozafa Taverna, Manchester

Full of traditional charm, you could easily mistake this Manchester city centre restaurant for a taverna tucked away down a side street in Greece, and trying the authentic food on offer here will only add to this feeling. In this family-run restaurant, traditional recipes are rustled up in the kitchen by the native Greek chef, and you will find Rozafa Taverna’s menu bursting with choices, from favourites like falafel and kebabs, to lesser known but equally as delicious options.

At Rozafa Taverna, the range of starters on offer is so big that you will probably struggle choosing, but options include dolmadakia – vine leaves stuffed with tender mince meat, rice and fresh herbs, and keftedakia – lamb meatballs with a tomato and wine sauce. Popular main dishes include kleftiko – a mouthwatering leg of lamb that has been delicately roasted for three hours with fresh herbs and white wine, and briam – a Greek casserole dish packed full of delicious vegetables in a tomato and wine sauce. This popular Princess Street restaurant is the place to go to indulge in a piece of the Mediterranean in Manchester city centre, so book a reservation in advance to avoid disappointment.

2nd time I've eaten here and have been blown away each time. Fabulous service, hearty food and interesting wines. Tried all the Greek restaurants in Manchester and this one is my favourite.

Helpful staff and excellent food. The meat meze was particularly impressive. It looks like a proxy option until you see just how much food there is and what superb quality meat is involved. The restaurant is informal and comfortable and the staff are all jovial and get involved. A great experience.
