Hola!
Welcome to Bar San Juan.

​We are a Tapas Bar and Restaurant located in the beautiful South Manchester suburb of Chorlton.

Pick a spot, order a drink and enjoy the vibes whilst you wait to be seated.

​Bar San Juan is not just a restaurant with proper Spanish food, it s a place to relax and enjoy with the Spanish way of life: eat some tapas, drink cerveza and have some fun!

​San Juan is a tiled tapas bar with traditional decor, serving authentic dishes and imported beer and wine. We aim to provide a little piece of Spain in Manchester.

​Buen provecho!

Lovely authentic tapas. Outdoor space is obviously very limited so how good your seat depends on if you are in a 2 or a group.
Cannot recommend the food enough, we are vegetarian and each dish was amazing

Excellent food and service as ever. Great to be back. Only negative point was when ordering more drinks to be told they would check how long we had left on our table - when we had at least another 40 minutes- made us feel slightly uncomfortable and a bit rushed.
Don’t mind a 10 minute reminder but 40 minutes was pushing it!
But it’s a new world and hopefully they are still finding the balance.
