Set In A Sprawling Industrial Relic Of Manchester’s Past And Deep Into The Northern Quarter.. Favelas Defines Contrast. With One Foot Set Firmly In South America And Another In The Industrial Revolution, There’s No Subtlety To Manchester’s Iconic Past. Broad Steel Columns, Original Floorboards And Antique Machinery Are Just A Few Features Still In Use. Using The Building’s Original Lay Out, Several Spaces Have Been Individually Crafted, Each With Its Own Style. From Our Traditional Brazilian Designed Dining Rooms To Our Dedicated Cocktail Bar And Not To Mention The Infamous Rainforest Canopy Dance Floor. Our Head Chef, Austin Fletcher, Has Curated The Menu After Months Of Research And Sampling, Capturing The Flavours And Vibrancy Of His Travels In South America. Clearly Reflected In The Dishes Is The Incredible Diversity & Multi-cultural History Of Brazil, With Each Dish Having A Unique Back Story To Its Creation.

Although the food was nice and there are half price offers during the week, the service is abysmal. We came to eat at 7.15pm on a Thursday. Within 15 minutes they suddenly turned the music up to the point it was hard to hear what...More

Had a great family meal at Favelas last Sunday. Can’t fault any of it! The Nachos and Steaks, in particular, were AMAZING! Great service from the young guy also, but can’t remember his name 😳 Cocktails were lovely too!! We will definitely be back!
