With a shabby cantina vibe of exposed brick walls and peeling paint, El Capo Manchester is a funky slice of casual South American fun in the Northern Quarter. On the menu, sample all kinds of street food dishes, along with a choice of over 200 tequilas, with an eclectic latin soundtrack keeping things lively.

Mouthwatering Mexican and South American tapas and street food is packed into the El Capo Manchester menu, with a great selection dishes perfect for sharing. Nibble on warm tortilla chips with smoked sour cream, pico de gallo and guacamole, before choosing between burritos, quesadillas and gluten-free tacos, with fillings like slow-roasted pork shoulder, chicken, and veggie options like kale and mushroom manchego. Chicken wings come in a variety of colourful sauces, there are eclectic burgers, and Argentinian steaks for those with a big appetite.

The massive tequila selection at El Capo in Manchester sits alongside a colourful selection of cocktails from the bar, as well as South American beers and wines. Those wanting something sweet to finish off with should try the churros served with a rich chocolate sauce.

Filled with vibrant latin warmth, El Capo Manchester is only a 4-minute walk from Manchester Piccadilly Rail Station.

    Great food! The tacos were very tasty and great that you can get different toppings rather than just having to choose one. Catered very well for my gf needs too. Cocktails were lovely too, I recommend the tangerina!

    Staff were inattentive and food was bland. Really disappointing!

    Poor slow drinks service - they brought our main courses prior to our starters we had ordered - it was then clear when they arrived that the main courses had sat back in the kitchen until we were ready for them.
    My main course was quite bland and not very warm. I ordered another drink on receiving my main and then cancelled it when it hadnt arrived 15 minutes later.

    Good atmosphere, really good food and cocktails, staff were friendly and great value! Only slight downside was that they couldn't do a free dessert or drink or anything for my boyfriend's birthday which was a shame but we'll be back for sure anyway

    Love this place. Food and service always spot on. Busy Saturday evening and still didn't have to wait.

    Food was great. Service was very slow, had to skip dessert as it was taking too long.

    Also, i was unable to use my hi life dining card, something they only notified me of 2h ahead of my booking.
