Fantastic music, exceptional service and amazing food. A little more expensive than we thought it would be but you certainly know the produce is of the highest standard. We will certainly return.

The perfect lunch - escaping the chaos of the Christmas markets with a very warm welcome from the ladies at the door who took us straight to our table, where we were provided with excellent food and an unhurried service.

Great venue and staff in central venue with well above average . I had to run late due to train strike and response by telephone and when I eventually arrived could not have been more helpful despite being a busy Friday evening

Table was booked for 3.30 but we didn’t get a table until 4.10. We also asked for a table on the bottom or first floor and at first we were given a table on the top floor which we didn’t want. The staff were great and sat us at a table where we originally wanted overlooking king street. Fantastic experience and just what we wanted on our wedding anniversary!

Excellent standard of food and drink. Meatballs and choice and lamb skewed very tasty. Crisp lager with attentive service despite it brings very busy Saturday lunchtime

We had an amazing evening the food and drink were amazing. The selection in the Christmas set menu was fantastic and the chef ensured our veggie colleagues were well catered for. The service was impeccable we waited for nothing and the food just kept coming. Keep up the good work we will be back.

We absolutely love visiting El Gato Negro and my husband always says it’s his fave restaurant in Manchester ... the food is amazing , the setting beautiful and the staff are brilliant. On this occasion I requested a table in the window and we were seated on the top floor in the window - which was perfect ! We have never dined on the top floor before and it has now become our favourite setting ! Fabulous music playing too ! Well done team El Gato Negro 👍👏
