During a business stay in Manchester I walked past this place and made a point to visit the next day. Really high quality feel, reminded me on many places back in London. Breakfast was excellent. Recommended.

The nicest chips ever. Lovely brunch menu. Would love a couple more veggie options but generally really enjoyable. Naylis and Flo gave us great service and the atmosphere was really relaxed.

We have eaten at Fress several times since opening last year and it just gets better! The menu is crative and presentation is a work of art! Flavour fusions are unparalleled, decor, ambiance and customer service are excellent. Thankyou Fress.

Fress is one of the best places for fresh food in Manchester! We love it. The staff are attentive, the drinks are tasty and it's open all day!

The white tiled venue does not need the lights full on the evening and they were turned down on request. The food was brilliant. Cheers.

Visited here on a Thursday evening, only people in there at the time. Ordered a few nibbles and a bottle of wine. All great. Staff were pleasant, and not rushed. May visit again.

Been here a few times now and had quite a bit of dill on dishes where dill doesn’t belong (brisket, ox cheek). Ignoring this fact, the rest of the dishes were fantastic!

Had a lovely meal here, the menu is simple but every choice we made was really gorgeous food. The restaurant has been fitted out really nicely with a monochrome design. Great service and really nice atmosphere. Highly recommend.

It was the first time we visited Fress and it will definitely not be the last time. The chicken liver pate was the best I’ve ever tried anywhere else. The burger was fresh and juicy. The cakes are to die for. Definitely recommend this place.
