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 👍👏

This is the wrong email address. I was unable to notify anyone. I hope Julie had a great time. It sounds like a nice place.

The wait staff were excellent. Non-intrusive when eating, helpful guidance in our choices, very friendly. We tipped heavily! The food was also straight-up delicious. I would recommend the sea bream and the meatballs.

Always incredible. I wasn’t quite sure what the tortilla was when it came but it was tasty! Most a Spanish omelette :)

Arrived for a 9pm table Was told table not ready as people before just paying 20 minutes later I asked what was happening and was told another 15 to 20 I asked what if the6 had been paying t be told that a group had been difficult to move and someone had bought an extra bottle of Champagne so they were allowed to stay on What about me and the others waiting? When we were shown to the table there was no apology from the cocky Irish greeter. Service at the table was actually very good but the wait made us needing to rush our meal to catch our train. Very disappointed
