Party of 3 for lunch on a Sunday. It was quiet and we were served by Salvador who was excellent. The croquettes and sautéed garlic potatoes were my favourite. The restaurant is lovely as they have round booths. Would highly recommend for a tapas!

It’s not only my favourite Spanish restaurant in Manchester it’s my favourite full stop. My wife and I went for our 21st wedding anniversary and the food and service were as good as we knew it would be. The food is of the highest quality.

What a lovely surprise, a warm welcome, great service and a fantastic Canarian menu, different from the traditional Spanish, which I love, but it's modern And it's got personality, loved it so much we've been back.

I love both these places. Both have great lunch deals. I would agree that La Bandera has a more modern twist based on Canaries dishes and La Vina has a less pricey wine offering and more casual feel.
