I've been here 3 times, all for different occasions, and honestly it's my favourite tapas bar and even restaurant in Didsbury.
The service is always lovely, attentive and the waiters/waitresses are always willing to give you an honest recommendation on food or wine options.
Tapas can sometimes add up to be very expensive, but we've never spent more than £35 for a meal for 2 or even 3 people (3 when using the lunchtime deal). The lunch deal works out as a lazy susan with 5/6 dishes on, all of which they choose for you. It's lovely because you can say which meats you wouldn't want - we don't eat lamb so we requested no lamb and that request was honoured. It normally includes breads, a salad, 3 meat options (normally the olive chicken dish which is one of our favourites, a chorizo, and a lamb) and then the patatas nueve (which are covered in a garlic creamy dressing - divine) AND a huge paella (chicken or vegetarian). It's such good value for money.
When dining normally and not using the lunchtime deal, I would normally go for the gambas (sizzling king prawns), patatas nueve, the croquettes (lovely but would say they have too much cinnamon in), the aubergine bake (same comment on the cinnamon), the chorizo in red wine, the chicken and olive dish, and some breads.
The house red is lovely and good value.
Atmosphere is lovely - candle-lit in the evening.
Only bug bare about Nueve is that you can't book tables. My boyfriend rung up on the day of my 21st to book a table. They said they don't normally but would on this occasion as it was a birthday last-minute. He was allowed to pick our normal spot, the round table by the window, on the phone, but when we arrived and made it clear that we booked, no one had any clue of it and the table was occupied already. Not too much of an issue as we sat in a booth at the back, but they should really re-think about polishing cutlery right next to customers in the booths when they're dining.
Love love love this place though - can't fault the service or the food at all.
Can't wait to return!

Great meal tonight with the kids, just back from Mallorca where we had some disappointing Tapas, so great to get home and have some quality food round the corner at Nueve

Met a friend for coffee in the afternoon, as I already knew that was good. We each had a tapas. Mine was BBQ pork ribs, which were really good and the coffee was top form as well.

Very friendly service from the proprietor.

Folding windows meant the place was light and airy on a hot day.

From the moment we walked through the door we knew we were going to have a brilliant evening. This place has a brilliant vibe. The food was authentic, the music was great and the staff were even better. From the fantastic cocktails to the exquisite tasting food, this was one of the best restaurant experiences I have ever had. Thank you to all the staff for making us feel right at home. A must visit!
