    Well, what a fantastic Tapas bar! A friend had raved about this bar & i can see why! A truly authentic Tapas place. The menu isn't massive which I think is better than having pages & pages to choose from. The 2 dishes I highly recommend are the lamb parcels and beef cheeks, but all the dishes we had were fantastic. You can't pre-book so I do recommend getting there for when they open at 12pm. It is only as small place so gets busy quickly. I will definitely be returning to try the dishes I didn't this visit! The staff were lovely & very efficient.

    This is our family's favourite tapas bar. A warm atmosphere and fantastic staff. When it is cold, grey and miserable in Manchester this place offers a delicious vibrant escape. It is a small bar, which helps maintain its authenticity and intimacy but this means it can get busy at weekends. I like to visit early evening mid week which means you don't have to wait and have more space. They have recently revamped their vegetarian and vegan menu.

    Don’t know why I’ve never reviewed this place. It’s our favourite place to eat. Food offers enough choice for non meat eaters and carnivores alike. The atmosphere, drinks and service feels like a real piece of Spain. The atmosphere is both bustling, relaxing and exciting. If we could, we’d eat here weekly. It’s somewhere we come for birthdays, rainy days, summer days and when our life needs an injection of light! You can’t book so arrive early or don’t arrive hungry and enjoy the drinks while you wait.

    We got there early for lunch time service. It really is tiny, but it creates a good atmosphere. The food was brilliant - patatas bravas and garlic mayo are to die for. My only complaint was that the king prawns were a bit too salty, but everything else was perfect.

    Went there on Saturday night and it was as busy as ever! Great food though as always. The only downside when you’re waiting at the bar to be seated (which can be an hour at times) you can feel everyone brushing past you as bar area is tiny.

    We arrived 5 minutes before they stopped serving and they still found space for us. Our waiter was lovely and the food was amazing, especially the goats cheese dish!

    Tried their new menu items; the grilled leek and asparagus, the peppers stuffed with cod and the pork loin. WOW. amazing. They don’t seem to rest on their laurels and constantly change small numbers of items on the menu. Still the best tapas in Manchester.

    it's always encouraging to hear spanish being spoken by customers in tapas bars outside spain. bar san juan was full on the night we were there, with spanish being spoken at about half the tables. and right enough the food was brilliant. the 10 dishes we had were very high quality, standout were the fish (we tried anchovies, prawns, calamari). we'll definitely be back.

    Just incredible food and atmosphere at dirt cheap prices. This is the best place to eat in Manchester by far - better than any tapas I have had in multiple trips to Spain over the year.

    Delicious food, friendly staff. Would recommend the beef cheek and croquettes! The sangria was also tasty.

    Fabulous bar which we have visited many times. Never disappointed by food or atmosphere. Typically Spanish menu. Small bar with outside, ‘pavement seating’. Often waiting time for a table but well worth the wait.

    Have wanted to try this place for ages and wasn’t disappointed! From such a tiny kitchen the chef prepares some great tasting tapas dishes full of flavour. The staff are good at not rushing you even though there aren’t many tables but it does get full quite quickly. Well worth a visit with a nice mix of menu to keep you wanting to try all the dishes.

    This little bar is tucked away in the small streets of Chorlton and finding out about it was a great fortune. It is perennially and deservedly crowded, the food is exceptional and super varied. Perhaps based on the price, the quantity is a bit scarce but you know, tapas is like this. Small flaw, you cannot book and finding a place is really difficult since there are very few tables. I'll be back soon to see you!

    The food was great, the staff even better. Properly done tapas with an incredible atmosphere. Lovely wine too!

    We've been living in Chorlton for 3 years and have always been trying to eat here but it's always been packed when we walk past. With only a few days before we leave the City for good we decided a Monday night may be a quiet time to try and get a meal here. We were seating straight away and ordered a jug of Sangria. All our food was incredible, and the couple on the table next to us were crooning about all the great food as they seemed to be regulars. We had the lamb parcels, steak with padron peppers, gambas and monkfish, all were delicious and very moorish. We also had the potatas braves, which were some of the best I've had. In the end, we were sad we've not been dining here for the last 3 years as I would love to try everything on the menu. But if we ever move back to the area we'll be in here all the time!!

    The food had been at a stupidly high standard for years and nothing has changed in our last visit. The wines are excellent and reasonably priced. You just can’t fault the place!

    We visited on a busy Saturday evening around 6:30pm after a recommendation from a work colleague. We were put on the waiting list for a table expecting to wait around 40 minutes so sat near part of the open kitchen at a couple of bar stools. We actually ended up eating in the same spot as we were happy with a small table and it felt like we were more part of the action! Food was amazing, the best tapas we have had in the Manchester area - particularly recommend the beef cheeks, chorizo and croquettes (chicken). Also had two delicious deserts and a nice bottle of verdejo. Service was excellent, food timings were great and we didn't feel rushed. We will definitely be returning in the new year. Thank you.

    Wonderful food and sangria on tap. What more could you ask for. Can be difficult to get a table during peak times as only about 4 available but well worth the wait if you have time to waste and get a drink with friends!
