We've been trying to eat here forever but it's always so busy with long waits for a table. Yesterday we finally made it for my husbands 30th and it didn't disappoint!!!

We ordered a load of dishes between us and literally everything was fantastic. The fillet steak and beef cheeks were particular highlights, and the deep fried béchamel, and the ribs! I could go on....

Great setting feels like an authentic tapas restaurant in Spain and lovely ambience. Most dishes around £6ish (some more and some less) makes it good value for money.

We will certainly return!

My thoughts on this Restaurant are essentially in my title -its only a small bar, but very warm with a really nice atmosphere. This bar has a real Spanish feel about it - I've been to many Tapas Bars in Manchester La Vina, Evuna, La Bandera, Tapeo, and while all of these restaurants serve nice food, i think Bar San Juan tops the list as a whole. As i said it has a very rustic, simple, Spanish feel about the place. The Tapas are excellent, service friendly and efficient and the beer and wine are good too. I feel many of the Tapas bars in manchester are trying to go too 'upmarket' and as such are losing what i would describe as real authentic Spanish food and most importantly that atmosphere you feel when your in Spain

I've never been the biggest fan of Tapas but this place certainly changed my mind. We went for a friend's birthday. The place is tiny and was bustling. The beef cheeks had been recommended and they didn't disappoint, they were out of this world. I tried to any things to list but they were all delicious. I will be back

Went last week, Wednesday, for an early evening meal.
All the tapas we ordered were first class as was the service of the waiting staff.
Place was packed and everyone seemed to be enjoying the whole atmosphere.
Will definitely go again

I have eaten tapas all over Spain and South America and San Juan is the best tapas I have ever eaten.

The restaurant is so authentic you could be sat on a square in Madrid and the staff are attentive and polite.

If you only visit one restaurant in Manchester make it this one.
