    Best tapas in Manchester, we have visited many times and never had a complaint. Difficult to get a table but we'll worth the wait (which is a good sign).

    Service, ambience and starters were good. I was disappointed with the main course tapas... spinach & chickpeas, and patatas bravas were far too salty and the sauce was thin and not very spicy. I have eaten here many times before this was nowhere near being up to previous high standards.

    The food here is truly outstanding and so reasonably priced. The service was second to none and everyone very knowledgable about dishes. A lot of Spanish people dining there so that tells you everything!!! Ambience was superb. It’s not our first visit and it certainly won’t be our last. Excellent!!

    We were disappointed not to find tortilla on the menu, and the fabulous ribs of earlier this summer. It was also very noisy.. Service was hood though. And excellent wine.

    Absolute gem of a place. Always delicious tapas, excellent value. Good fairy priced wines. Lovely staff. Tables rather small and cramped so just order a little at a time. A favourite of ours for casual dining. If you can't tolerate noise, only sit outside covered areas which are cozy and there are heaters x

    I had waited a long time to revisit San Juan, telling the friends I'd invited how good I recalled it being. Sadly I & there, were disappointed. The food was mediocre and the service not great, I'm afriad. Had to keep chasing the waiter for things ordered that didn't come out. Seemed like they had forgotten what we'd ordered It just wasn't the authentic Spanish food I remember having at a visit some time ago. 💁🏽‍♀️

    Bar San Juan was lovely - Very authentic and attentive staff. The food in general was flavoursome but some of the dishes were too salty for me.
