Spanish Restaurants in Manchester
1. El Gato Negro Spanish restaurant in Manchester 52 King Street - M2
Manchesters gain is Rippondens loss and after less than a year, Simon Shaw is already looking to expand his slick, very large city centre operation (adding 50 covers in the rooftop level), as it proves a fantastic addition and one offering a different experience on each of its three floors. It being Manchester, there is a serious bar-element to the business, and its a great place to eat or just enjoy a glass of wine and nibbles. Scaling up the food production from Ripponden to King Street does not seem to have been a problem the majority of the tapas are not merely correct, but excellent and overall this is a successful transfer to a cracking new site.
2. Evuna Spanish restaurant in Manchester 277 – 279 Deansgate - M3
Always busy brick-walled bar in the city-centre with a relaxed and friendly vibe even if the tapas is not particularly surprising its well executed and consistent and there are fantastic wines. A Northern Quarter sibling is equally acclaimed indeed, for one reporter, the NQ has the slight edge as it feels more like Madrid or Barcelona inside!
3. Bar San Juan Spanish restaurant in Manchester 56 Beech Rd - M21
You really feel you could be in Spain, according to fans of this diminutive tapas bar a cheap n cheerful choice in Chorlton.
4. La Bandera Spanish restaurant in Manchester 2 Ridgefield - M2
Off Deansgate, Basque chef Josetxo Arrietas über-modern (or rather garish, depending on taste) two-year-old has already made quite a name for itself. Yet while some fans cite exceptional food as proof that its probably the best of the new tapas venues in town, critics felt that its rather ho hummm-y fine, but nothing that captivates.
5. Ibérica, Spinningfields Spanish restaurant in Manchester 14-15 The Avenue - M3
A great lavish interior (if you can forgive the dodgy bulls head) sets the scene at this year-old northern outpost of the London-based modern tapas chain, and its a lively hang out. Feedback is mixed however some of the criticism is sharp (waste of time
; very let down
; lost its way
), but fans hail its great quality (I was a bit sniffy as its a chain, but they proved me very wrong!)
