Based on Tripadvisor reviews I visited the Republic Cafe for dinner and I wasn't disappointed. It was a Monday night and it wasn't crowded. I sat at the bar and the bartender and a fellow customer recommended a local beer that was pretty good. I ordered the chicken confit. I received a healthy dish of delicious chicken and vegetables. They... More

Republic is one of the best, if not the best, place to meet clients and friends for lunch in Manchester. Claudia and Ed, the owners, are experienced and professional, the place feature natural and local foods, and the menu is creative, although the salads and the seafood burger have me coming back time after time.

The food is delicious, the menu is very unique, and I understand that the owners travel the world and bring back recipes and ideas from the places they visit. The staff is very friendly, and extremely attentive. The atmosphere is intimate, very soothing, low lighting, and very relaxing. My husband and I and our daughters just celebrated our anniversary there,... More

We stopped here on our way back to Boston and were thrilled with the meal. Our favorites were the onion tart and the fig flatbread.

Andrew was was my server, quick cheerful and charming. Had the chickpea ragu with the addition of arugula and a poached egg by his suggestion. Cannot go wrong here. Speacials sell out quickly. Don't miss... More

Heading back from Montreal we were looking for a place closer to home to get dinner. We arrived around 8:30 on a Sunday and got a table. They were still fairly busy. The whipped spicy feta was a great start. The falafel fried fish and chips were crunchy and not at all greasy. Turkish chicken was delicious. Very fresh ingredients.... More

My wife and I have been regular customers since Republic opened and have recommend it to all of our friends. Ed and Claudia were are the forefront of "farm to table" in Manchester and adapt the daily specials to what is seasonally available from local purveyors. You can't go wrong with any of the daily fish specials. If you've never... More
