Visited on a hot summer evening having booked a table after reading previous reviews. We were given a table near one of several large windows which were completely open. This allowed a cool breeze into the room and a view of the scores of customers sitting outside at tables on Canal Street. The staff were friendly and helpful (though I... More

When you 1st walk in the staff are friendly but the decor is very dark and not very colourful. We booked a table and was given 1 near the big windows. We ordered 2 fish & chips, oriental salmon and a Cajun chicken burger. What we received was unbelievable, you would have thought we was in a very posh restaurant... More

I could never say a bad word about this place. Food is always excellent and the drinks are always great. They also have great cocktails. I would always recommend this place as one of the most quality places on canal St.

Only waited around 20 mins for meal to arrive and my how we were impressed - especially liked the chips in the mini bucket! Would definitely visit... More

Lovely evening at Taurus. Cocktails were lovely and the food was fresh and very well presented. The staff were very friendly and efficient and it is lovely to be able to sit outside and enjoy the good weather

A friend and I had lunch at Taurus last week. My BLT was outstanding but more importantly the service was second to none. Friendly and helpful. Thank you.

Had dinner here yesterday after being recommended by a friend and it did not dissappoint. Friendly welcome, We were heading to the airport and the waiter offered to take our cases. Quick service. Would have loved to have spent more time at the bar. Will be returning on my next trip to Manchester.

I visited Taurus with my wife last Friday evening. I was looking for somewhere in between Victoria Station and the Apollo. Some nice reviews on Trip Advisor and the lure of Happy Hour drinks prompted me to give it a whirl. We arrived at around 5.30 on a nice sunny evening and as such all the outside tables were full,...

On this visit, the food was very good, the staff very friendly, and there was a lovely friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Whether you come here for drinks or... More
