Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Outstanding! Me and my partner whilst in Ripon on the 25th April booked Manchega for our lunch.Booking was fairly quick but I have to say that whilst approaching this restaurant don’t be fooled from the outside.Due to COVID outdoor dining was in place and what a treat.Going through the narrow alley with the Spanish music playing in the back building warmth to a beautiful vibrant setting which allures you with its warmth.The ambience is colorful along with the table setting.This is by far my favorite tapas restaurant.welcomed warmly by the host with knowledge of each dish and the specials menu all authentic cooked fresh,from start to finish the service and the food was excellent,tasty,mouthwatering.I would definitely return and ask others to visit this hidden gem because it’s worth every penny.Reasonable prices along to cater for vegans and vegetarian.This place is a MUST! If ever in Ripon I shall return xx

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!

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.

We arrived late into Ripon and hunted for somewhere to eat. The gentleman welcomed us even though it was minutes from closing time, we were so grateful as we had travelled for hours and were so hungry. The food was delicious and so tasty and we did not ever feel rushed even though we were only ones left. Thank you so much and we will be back!!

Brilliant little place with amazing foo, service and atmospheric. The prawns, pig cheeks & chorizo were our favourites but everything we ordered was delivered timely and extremely tasty. We would definitely come back next time we’re in Ripon

This isn't the first time I've been to Manchega but it's the first time I've had lunch in their courtyard and I'll definitely be back. Always delicious food and great wine (think I'm in love with their white rioja) the atmosphere was fantastic sitting in the sunshine- albeit with coats on- we closed our eyes and were on holiday for a moment. We enjoyed a leisurely meat sharing platter, pork pinchos, padron peppers and garlic prawns, with a bottle of wine. The relaxed and eclectic service was, as always, the perfect combination of charming and bonkers. We will be back!

Excellent meal We ate out locally a few times this month. And here and Realitea were by far the best in the locality A beautiful selection of dishes. Friendly welcome from Richard and staff Beautiful little place. I think we ordered at last twelve different Tapas dishes between the three adults and three children. All were wonderful And just as we finished one delivery. More arrived We just managed to find room for deserts and they too were delicious and very reasonably priced

10yr Wedding anniversary.. The wife has always been a picky eater but wanted to try something new. Warm greating, and felt very comfortable and welcome straight away.. Was given the info on the available specials and left to peruse the tapas and wine menus. We ordered the specials which took abit of time to cook as they were made to order and ordered our tapas to start us off while we waited The food came out quickly was hot and fresh and full of flavour .. my wife tried black pudding and olives which she isn't a fan of but liked both of these dishes we also had calamari and prawns both were excellent. Our specials followed which comprised of belly pork which fell apart as you touched it and a paella which is probably one of the best things I've eaten in years. We finished up with some desserts which again were superb. When we got our bill we were treated to a small treat which really completed the meal Definitely value for money and nothing but quality food and brilliant service WE WILL BE RETURNING Thankyou to Richard and his team for a wonderful night for our 10yr Wedding Anniversary

A return visit for us on a short break to Ripon. We’ve been here 3/4 times previously. As always it was busy, so definitely recommend booking in advance. This is a small place which just about manages a 1m distance between tables but there is hand sanitizer available and overall we all felt ‘safe’ there. Good menu of traditional tapas with a nice selection of specials. We tried veal, pig cheek, cod, pork skewers and the always delicious potatas bravas. Lovely bottle of red to go with. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Worth a visit.

If you are looking for a courtyard full of atmosphere, tapas of the highest quality, and faultless service with fun banter then this restaurant fulfills every need and more. This was our first visit and we were drawn to the alleyway by the Spanish music and the smell of garlic. It really is a hidden gem and without doubt, one of the best experiences which we are hoping will be repeated over and over again when we visit Ripon.

You may think that I am exaggerating but I am never disappointed when we eat here. Excellent priced and quality wine complemented by a vast array of beautifully prepared tapas dishes. Restaurant is small and quirky adding to the great food and atmosphere. A gem for Ripon!

Recently visited this lovely restaurant and had a great experience. Varied menu choices as well as a specials board and our chosen dishes were delicious. Typical Spanish style decor which adds to the experience and the staff were friendly and efficient, would recommend you give this little gem a try.

From ages 10 to 74 we all loved our meal here. Lots of choices, from vegetarian to pescatarian and some amazing sounding puddings (although we were v full 🤣) The staff were lovely, the food was freshly prepared and delicious, arriving promptly, I love the intimate 'family' nature of the place. Great wine list, excellent presentation...I just wish they were in our home town! We will return. Highly recommended x

We were in Ripon for the day and were enticed into Manchega by the music and the look of the place. We stayed for a glass of wine and enjoyed the ambience. The service was excellent and the food being served to neighbouring tables looked so good that we have booked another trip to Ripon next month so that we can stay longer and eat there too this time. Can't wait!
