Our third visit. Great traditional Catalan food, excellent service even with the current restrictions, with the added bonus of meeting Pep Guardiola too!

One of the best restaurants in Manchester Tast is excellent and despite changes to comply with Government regulations nothing has been lost in style or delivery. The dishes are varied and exciting and beautiful.

Bring back the chicken wings :). Food and service was great, good atmosphere considering the current climate - the best Catalan/Spanish Restaurant in Manchester by far.

The soft launch lunch at Tast was a real treat. The tastets are a great idea as they are larger than usual tapas which can be too small for sharing. The duck egg and squid, and guinea fowl dishes are exquisite. Even the chicken wings are a sophisticated delight rather than the usual messy pub-grub affair. Everything is expertly seasoned by someone who knows what they’re doing. The staff are friendly and enthusiastic about the food they are serving (which is always a welcome bonus). Every dish arrives with a detailed description. It’s a fine line between an interesting dining experience and a lecture. I think one or two quick key points per dish is sufficient. It’s important to make it clear that there is a more traditional dining area upstairs with private tables in addition to the informal communal dining area. You could easily walk by or call in and not realise that this is available. I’ll definitely be recommending Tast to friends visiting Manchester and hope to be back soon.

the only issue I would like to highlight is when I received my reservation confirmation e-mail the time of the booking was incorrect so I tried to ring and speak to someone. I was put on hold for 6 minutes saying I was the first call in the queue and then told to leave a message as know one was available. Despite leaving a message no-one called me back and it took 3 times doing this before anyone answered the phone. This was on the Thursday night before my reservation for the Saturday evening. If I hadn't already eaten on the ground floor before I would have been put off by this experience.

A great new opening in Manchester. Fantastic innovative Catalonian food in Manchester. Was impressed by high quality charcuterie and the asparagus, octopus and chicken with prawn dishes were outstanding. Friendly and attentive service but hopefully will relax with experience. Interesting wine list.

We enjoyed eating here. Well constructed menu - more exciting food compared to many 'tapas' places - decent wine list and service good but should improve as things progress.

We were excited to try Tast, having read about Paco's other restaurants in Spain. Although each dish tasted perfectly fine, there was no wow factor and we left with no lasting memory of any particular dish we had as part of La Seleccio. Perhaps our expectations were too high, however there wasn't a single dish which left an impression on the tastebuds and having been to La Dam de Pic in London the week before our visit to Tast for their Iberico Pork (which I believe was a similar shoulder cut), we were left disappointed at both the taste and especially the texture of this particular dish. We felt that La Seleccio was overpriced and we were left hungry, having to go somewhere else for more food after. The staff at Tast were friendly, but we found it odd that we had about 4 different servers, with little continuity throughout the meal. Although glad that we have tried the restaurant, I don't think we will be returning.

Me and my girlfriend had an amazing time at Tast. The atmosphere is very chilled and relaxed and the staff all had so much knowledge of the food and what the restaurant was trying to achieve. Would definitely recommend

Wow what a lovely place ! The food,wine and service all were exceptional. I don’t want to go overboard on how good the experience was for our son’s birthday otherwise we will never be able to reserve another table ! Thank you to Sandra our waitress who was very knowledgable of any question we asked about the menu or wine, very friendly and helpful lady. We will be back very soon. 👏. Well done to all your staff, commendable.
