    Our third visit here in 4 weeks. Been with different groups of friends and family, always veggie—food is consistently outstanding. Wide range of different flavours, each dish is exquisite on its own, and great in combination. Can't wait to come back!

    I visited Volta with 4 friends to celebrate my birthday and take advantage of their January offer of 3 small plates for £15. It was my first visit there & I really enjoyed my dishes of whipped feta with hazlenuts, black lentils and queenie scallops. I think 5 dishes between 2 would be ideal in the future as they are very generous!

    Pleased with the food. Rather tasty and creative. Very nice and cosy atmosphere. I know food is a very serious thing but service could with a smile... We ordered a fair amount a plates which virtually all came at the same time. We felt on mission to eat before it all got cold. We would have enjoyed it better should we have had more time to make the most of it.

    I've eaten at Volta a number of times and the food is consistently good, with a fairly regular change of dishes - so it never gets boring! The food was outstanding this time and also, the wine list is probably the best in any restaurant in Didsbury - we had a lovely white Rioja. A great experience all round - the service was spot on and very friendly. I'll be back, as someone famously said.
