We offer a range of options for dining with us, and we support both advance reservations and walk-ins alike. You can ask in person at the host desk in the entrance to our ground floor; phone our dedicated host team, or use our online booking service to pre-book a table. Our hosts can advise if there are any spaces available for walk-in customers, or if places are available due to cancellations elsewhere in the restaurant. Please call to check availability.

Group Bookings

We offer a set sharing menu for pre-booked groups from seven to sixteen diners, subject to availability. These highlight some of the most popular dishes from our menu while allowing for different tastes and budgets. Please click here to view the menu.

Reservations using our pre-booked group set menus require a minimum of 3 days notice. Use the contact form below, or call one of our team to discuss your requirements for a larger party so we can do our best to accommodate you.

Additional information

We are an independent restaurant and rely on reservations being honoured to ensure our continued success. Therefore we kindly ask that if you need to make any changes to your reservation that you do so as soon as possible. You can contact our reservations team on 0161 694 8585 and they will be happy to help.

Please make us aware of any special requirements you may have, along with any allergies or dietary requirements in your party and we will be happy to accommodate.

We require credit card details to secure reservations for weekend bookings, groups of 7-16 diners, and special events. These details are kept secure with a 3rd party provider (Stripe) and will only be charged if the cancellation terms are not met.

We ask for 24 hours notice of a cancellation or reduction in numbers: failure to give this notice will automatically incur a £15pp fee. We will contact you 1-2 days prior to your reservation via phone or email to confirm your booking. Please note we are unable to hold unconfirmed bookings.

We politely ask you to contact us if you are running late as we can hold tables for 15 minutes and will release it if we have not been contacted. By making a reservation with us you agree to our reservation cancellation terms. We look forward to welcoming you to El Gato Negro.
