Came to Cantos for the first time on Saturday. We had a table booked for Tipsy Tapas. The waitress that took our order was friendly and gave good service. The tapas came as it was made. There’s a selection on the menu and very good value for money. There was a dish missing which mentioned to one of the waiters (nothing was done or mentioned again from them) it’s lucky that everyone was feeling nice and full from the food, I felt this let it down a little. We found ourselves having to ask different waiters and waitresses for the same drink order that took over 30mins. We had a nice waiter that went to find out and apologised for the delay. He brought us all an extra drink before our time was up.

In terms of the quality of the food and value for money, not eaten in a better place in Manchester in a long time. Was a solo diner and didnt feel neglected the staff were very attentive. The Chefs table is a great place to sit for solo diners. Will be back!

Very disappointed. The food was pretty poor and certainly not Portuguese. We would not go again.

Really good and chilled out atmosphere. Really, really good service. And really nice food (which we expected having been to El Gato Negro on numerous occasions). The almond tart, in particular, was exceptional, probably the best I've ever had!

Me and my boyfriend came her for Tipsy Tapas before we went to the theatre and it was amazing. The food was delicious (especially the chicken wings) and the wine was lovely. We didn’t have to ask for a top up of drinks the staff were very attentive. They were very accommodating throughout and we will definitely be back. Thank you to all the lovely staff

Overall we were left disappointed with our experience at Canto. We were seated to our table late - albeit it was on a busy Saturday night, but still, no apology. The food wasn't great either. Out of the 6 dishes ordered, 2 were good but we weren't craving another portion. The 4 other dishes, were quite bland with very little seasoning. The wine we ordered was great and the staff and atmosphere were pleasant, but a disappointment none the less.

Thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere here. Well worth a visit. They don't have a vast selection of drinks though ie: no baileys, cointreau or tia marias etc for coffees.

Food was very good, wine great. Our waiter, didn't offer specials until I asked if there were any. Also he didn't seem to know the menu. We left at 10:30, and were the last ones in.... such a shame that there wasn't atmosphere.
