El Rincon de Rafa
Time Out says
Secluded tapas spot that’s worth seeking out for spot-on dishes and an authentic atmosphere
So authentic is the feel of this wonderful Spanish tapas bar that you step off the streets of Manchester and feel like you've walked into a local restaurant on the fringes of Madrid.
The quality of the tapas is excellent and the tiled surrounds, the atmosphere and the staff all add up to a feeling that you're away on holiday. Grasp the vibe firmly and you’ll forgive a few small niggles, like the TV showing football matches, the service – which is very polite but sometimes a little fast, sometimes a little slow – and the fact that if you don’t know where it is, you'll struggle to find the place.
