Chef Patron and Creative Director Simon Shaw brought his acclaimed tapas restaurant El Gato Negro to Manchester in February 2016. Relocating from a former pub in a Yorkshire village to an elegant converted townhouse on King Street in the heart of the city centre was a bold move, but one which helped cement his reputation and establish El Gato Negro as one of the North West’s most successful restaurants.
The award-winning menu combines modern and traditional Spanish flavours and techniques, offering seasonally-influenced dishes based on quality Spanish and locally-sourced ingredients. Signature dishes and small plates are served alongside some of Spain’s best wines and sherries. Occupying three distinct floors of an elegant converted townhouse, the stunning interior reflects the restaurant’s style and dining experience; both refined and relaxed.
