Situated in a basement the place looked anywhere but in Manchester. Decorated as a latin venue and run as an authentic experience. We went to eat and then dance! There was a wide selection of tapas and also main courses all at reasonable prices. At 9pm there was a Salsa lesson followed by Salsa dancing which we enjoyed. Alcohol pricing... More

My partner and i went last night on a groupon voucher. The staff were very attentive and the salsa class was really good. We didnt take part but everyone who did seemed to enjoy it. The food was very good but the cocktails were to die for, we worked our way through the cocktail menu. We would return here again... More

Visited this restaurant using a groupon deal and I would not go back! Food was poor just tasted like a frozen ready meal! Not a place to go fork a meal in my opinion!

We got the £20 pp party deal and i got to go free :-) This included a cocktail each which were delish...alcholic slush puppies which usually got £5.00. We did not have to pay and enterance fee and then got food... More

I am not much of a dancer but i like to try. Been to Copacabana a couple of times and the music and dancing is good fun. However in my opinion there are too many single men stood around the dancefloor desperate to dance with anybody. If you go to the toilet and leave your girl someone will be there... More

I visited wit a party of 5 and had an enjoyable evening of dancing in the lively club. I am only reviewing the 'restaurant' here. The service is excellent, the drinks are good and surprisingly inexpensive. However the food is poor quality, although it is quite inexpensive it seems to consist of quite small portions of poor quality food. We... More

I have been to Copacabana many times as I love salsa dancing! This club/restaurant has a great Latin atmosphere that welcomes everyone - salsa veterans or those new to the whole scene and who want to try something different. The whole place is on one floor and really well decorated with Aztec motifs and Cuban salsa references. There are two... More

A hidden fun spot. They come for the dancing and seems a lot of regulars. Great spot for a hen party drink and salsa dance or if you just n d mood for some dancing. Well staffed. Really enjoyed our visit.

The salsa class was good fun and the food was okay.. worst part was after eating the place turns into a Latino style salsa nightclub full of people constantly scouting the room for dance partners which is fine if u have any sense of rhythm but for me it was a little uncomfortable, was good watching some amazing dancing though!!

A lot of Latin people like this place. Visit on Thursday night and enjoy Salsa music and dance. Entrance fees is 5 pounds. The place is not very large. and It may take you about 10mins walking from Piccadilly Garden.
