Much like the Acropolis in Athens, Dimitri’s Deansgate now serving the good people of Manchester for over 3 decades; is an independent venue that must be visited when in Manchester’s City Centre.
Dimitri was inspired to open his restaurant when his uncle took him to his first Greek Meze bar as a youngster and he was served up several small courses. For Dimitri there is nothing better than a glass of wine and a variety of dishes to get a taste of everything. Consequently their approach is more country kitchen than haute cuisine and they pride themselves on this fact. As a result Dimitri’s is authentic, fun and doesn’t take itself too seriously. This Mediterranean kitchen is chock full of characters every bit as colourful as the Mezes they lovingly prepare.
Dimitri’s menu features full meals as well but is most famous for its platters and mezes that include the Party Meze Menu for larger parties and groups; a banquet of dishes that goes on forever and ever and ever….
Dimitri’s Deansgate, one of Manchester’s oldest and best-known restaurant and live entertainment venues, is situated at the top end of Deansgate in the City Centre right opposite the new Hilton Hotel and just a short walk away from the Deansgate Railway and GMEX Metrolink Stations.
A Manchester institution, Dimitri’s Deansgate is recognised as a top Mediterranean Restaurant and a lively Tapas Meze Bar for over 25 years, and has expanded from a single unit to the five it now occupies in Campfield Arcade. After Dimitri’s latest expansion that includes a much larger downstairs Taverna, our venue is now capable of housing up to 300 diners and is the perfect place for planning a party. With its vivid decoration and Friday DJ Sets and live music on Saturday in its late bar, it’s always a party at Dimitri’s anyway, so you might as well join in! The fantastic outdoor arcade allows for alfresco dining even with a chill in the air thanks to the warmth blasting heaters. The checked tablecloths and vibrant decor ensure the atmosphere matches the personalities of the exuberant and friendly staff that make it more of a dining experience than just a place to have your dinner.
Castlefield Canal Basin is around the corner with many well-known tourist attractions close by, including the world famous Museum of Science and Industry and we are less than 20 minutes walk from Manchester United’s Theatre of Dreams.
