The Oystercatcher is a real catch i the ocean of food spots in Chorlton. Yes, oysters are a given, but the restaurant extends its reach to a spectrum of fish and seafood dishes on the menu, all brought to life on their in-house chargrill. Fancy a chargrilled octopus with batata harra and harissa? They’ve got it. How about a halibut steak paired with pomme Anna, cavolo nero, and chicken butter sauce? That’s in their repertoire as well. You can indeed go all out with a lavish shared seafood platter or stick to comfort food with an elevated fish and chips meal.
Defying Manchester’s seemingly indifferent attitude towards city centre seafood restaurants, The Oystercatcher has flourished locally since its inception in 2017 under the leadership of Recep Canliisik and Duncan Ranyard. The brand is now ready to make waves with a new branch soon opening in Sale.
