I visited this excellent bar/restaurant on my last day in Manchester, after a four day visit. As it was a sunny afternoon I opted to sit outside and was only going to have a couple of drinks but decided to have a look at the menu. The menu options were excellent and I opted for the two course menu which... More

This has been a regular weekend afternoon venue for us this summer in the heart of Manchester's village district. The wine list is exceptional choice and quality whilst the food choice is varied but not overwhelming cooked fresh and served with style.staff are amazing and hospitable and there is good visibility of the owners who take pride in the venue...

Friendly staff and excellent food. The 8oz beef burger with blue cheese and caramelised onions is definitively worth trying.

Thank you for the lovely words. We've worked hard to be here for 13 years, and always appreciate feedback. Don't forget it's Happy Hour every day 4-7pm, so those cocktails are even more 'reasonable'! Glad you enjoyed, see you soon. More

Had a fab meal here just a shame it took over 45 minutes for the main course to be served due to our waiter forgetting to put the order in.However we got our bottle of wine free from the manager as an apology still shouldn't of happened though.

Nosheel, Manager at Taurus, responded to this review

Please accept our apologies again. We rarely make these mistakes, so it's very unfortunate it happened to you. We did think the bottle of wine was a suitable gesture, to ease the waiting time? Glad to hear you enjoyed the food however. Thanks for the positive feedback. Hopefully next time, we will get it right on all counts. More

Visited today with my son for a belated birthday treat. The staff were busy getting ready for the Pride event but still found time to be attentive and courteous as is the norm here. I had the Lancashire cheese pie which was really tasty and my son had a burger which was huge! We will of course be back again... More

I was pleasantly surprised to see that Taurus was still open when I walked through canal street yesterday, and was once again left full and satisfied after an incredibly tasty nosh session. I had the daily soup special with oriental style salmon as a main. The soup was categorically the best Tomato soup I've had. Apparently they make all soups... More

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

So glad to hear you had a lovely time, and especially that you got a window seat! Those seats are like gold dust sometimes!
