Welcome to El Gato Negro Tapas

We’re an award-winning tapas restaurant, opening in Manchester this autumn.

Chef patron and founder Simon Shaw specialises in seasonally-influenced dishes, reflecting a mix of modern and traditional Spanish flavours and techniques, while taking inspiration from closer to home. Our food is perfectly complemented by a select range of Spanish wines, sherries and a superb bar.

We look forward to welcoming you to our new home on King Street in central Manchester later this year. Meanwhile, please look around…
