SHEFFIELD, to quote the newsreel intro to the 1997 movie The Full Monty, is a city on the move. And almost 20 years on, it really is. Sheffield has one of the fastest growing economies in the UK, and its city centre area has been the site of major rejuvenation in recent years. It is home to an expansive and diverse array of businesses, based in some of the best designed offices. It also is a proud standard bearer for cuisine and fine dining, hailed by local residents and visitors alike. So if you’re new to the steel city, and are looking for superior cuisine, you’re in luck. Here are just 6 of the top restaurants in Sheffield to whet your appetite.

The restaurant’s elegant, unobtrusive colour scheme and decor underscores the harmonious atmosphere here, and customers are all but guaranteed to be treated like royalty.
2. Marco at Milano
A FINE Italian restaurant that stands out as one of the top restaurants in Sheffield by virtue of its cuisine alone, Marco At Milano, also has a unique interior, housed as it is in a refurbished police station in the quiet suburbs, away from the bustle of the city centre. But it is the amazing culinary creations of head chef Franco Esposito, and his team, Ikky Ty and Pasquale, which keep patrons coming back for more.
Ester Celva’s and Saverio Bruno’s award-winning authentic Italian restaurant VeroGusto has been another of those top restaurants in Sheffield that has won the hearts of their patrons through exemplary service and amazing cuisine. Ester, Saverio and their team are passionate about great food, wine and hospitality. It’s no wonder that this has been a stalwart of Sheffield dining since its opening in 2006.

Whether your visit is for a romantic dinner, a private fine dining party or a formal, The Old Vicarage is guaranteed to meet and exceed your expectations.
5. Fear X Loathing
If it’s fast food you are after, then why not do it in style, at the strikingly designed and memorably named West Street establishment, Fear X Loathing. The objective at this place is quite simple — good times for its customers. The food is hearty and authentic cooking, the music is the coolest, and beer is served also. A perfect spot for unwinding after work, or for some beautifully cooked, simple nosh if you don’t have the time for the full-on premium restaurant experience, Fear X Loathing is undoubtedly a standout among the top restaurants in Sheffield.
6. The Hidden Gem Cafe
THE Hidden Gem Bistro Café is so much more than a cafe or bistro. It is part of the Sheffield-based charity, Work Ltd, which offers opportunities to people with learning disabilities to fulfil their potential. They are also achieving it. Recently, The Hidden Gem was awarded the prestigious Good Food Award for 2017. Adjudicators who evaluated customer feedback on the premises over the past year found that The Hidden Gem demonstrated “exceptional levels of food quality, service and value when compared to our industry benchmarks”. Set in a perfect, secluded location, The Hidden Gem offers everything from teas, coffees and cakes right up to more substantial high-quality daily specials. Their homemade soups, light bites and breakfasts are reportedly outstanding. Well done to Sheffield’s ‘Hidden Gem’.
