“Pound for pound one of the best nights out in Manchester”; “it really feels like you have stepped into Spain” at this “always bustling” and notably consistent Chorlton spot – where, refreshingly, “no matter how important you think you are, Juan and the team are fair” with table waits (“dream on you BBC lot!”).
