This is usually one of our first stops. The Aztec soup is great and my hubby has to have it at least twice during our stay in Manzanillo. A bowl of soup each and sharing the shrimp salad was a very ample meal for the 2 of us. We definitely have it on our schedule for next year. And, if... More

Chomorro, or slow roasted pork leg, is great as are the lava bowls that are called Molcajetes sp? Atmosphere nice even though it is on Ave de la Madrid. A back table accross the pond helps. Enjoy! It is one of my go to places!

The staff is friendly, the food is really good, staff speaks English. The price for a steak is 180 pesos. It's worth your visit, the bean and meat soup is also very good. Great ambiance!

Unique atmosphere and the best food we've had in Manzanillo so far. The boyfriend had the adobo rabbit and I have the Mexican plate. Both were tremendous and so tasty we had to pause and just savor. We started with the lengua tacos and can't recommend them enough. The salsa platter and the fresh made FLOUR tortillas are the cherry... More

Very good to excellent steak house in Manzanillo. Casual atmosphere, big portions and excellent prices (about 20USD per person including a couple of Negra Modelos). The prime rib was excellent, but the other cut I had (I think it was called an Argentina cut) was very good but a little tougher than the prime rib. All things considered, I highly... More

I have been there three times and hated it each time. Will never go back even if someone else is paying.

We went to this restaurant twice while in Manzanilo. My children really enjoyed their meals, steak, tacos, fajitas and steamed clams! I had the shrimp Mocahete bowl and it was ok, the shrimp was good the sauce was not. My father had the chicken Mocahete bowl that came with a green sauce and it was amazing! The only thing we...

My wife and I met up with another couple from home and went to El Fogon for dinner on the recommendation of the concierge at their resort. We arrived and had several drinks before ordering, snacking on the tortilla chips and various salsas on the table. Also ordered guacamole as the salsas had a lot of kick to them. Our... More

But don't let that you stop from enjoying a meal at El Fogon. With careful planning you will get there. Located between Cabillitos and Mr. Sushi and across the street from Boston Steakhouse on the Main Street San Miguel. El Fogon offers knowledgable waiters, some speak English. The food was good not great. We ordered a Mocahete bowl and the... More
