I stay in a Spanish village a few times a year so I can say that this tapas bar is pretty authentic. Lots of ex pat Spaniards call in so it must be. Food and drink are both good.

My family and I have been going to San Juan regularly for years. Without doubt the best Tapas in Manchester. Fantastic atmosphere, they've kept the restaurant compact, which means it's always busy and buzzing. Be prepared to wait for a table, but with outside drinking...More

I’ve been here several times, and each have great. I’m more a fan of this place in the afternoons when it’s a little less busy as it’s quite a small venue. The food is very tasty and the place has a nice authentic Spanish feel....More

Awesome authentic Spanish tapas and a really nice vibe. My favourite is the octopus! Good selection of alcohol and the staff are really nice too. It’s small and gets really packed because you can’t pre book, so get in early unless you want to wait...More

Food is excellent, service relaxed, atmosphere typically Spanish. I've lived in Madrid and the food here trumps almost of what you get there. You'll probably have to wait, who cares! Grab a beer and relax.

You can't book but you can put your name down when you are there so that when a table comes free they will seat you. Have a drink at the bar as the food is worth waiting for
