El Gato Negro is an award-winning tapas restaurant, formerly in the picturesque village of Ripponden, West Yorkshire. The restaurant is now closed, as we are relocating to Manchester later in 2015. Chef/proprietor Simon Shaw and his team serve a stunning selection of seasonally-inspired tapas and other dishes influenced by modern Spanish cuisine.
