We had gone in the past to their previous location on the beach at Santiago so we tried the new location at the Marina of Las Hadas for dinner under the stars. Four of us and we all very much enjoyed the service and the food. Very nice atmosphere with a fantastic view of the marina, the beach... read more

They recently moved to the marina at Las Hadas Resort, but the food and great service remain the same. We sat outside enjoying a nice Chilean wine and excellent fish and chicken. You can park in the Las Hadas garage and walk down to the marina. It is now only open for dinner, but it is worth the trip -... More

As others have mentioned, this restaurant has moved to the Las Hadas Marina, and they're no longer open for lunch - they open after 3 pm. Still good food, just no longer beachfront.

I was there the other day. I was surprised the see that none of the restaurants at the marina are open for lunch. I anole wish they were back at the old location, as it was a breach place to go for a swim, have a shrimp cocktail and a beer. Reapete!

It has moved from Miramar to the Marina in Las Hadas. Time for the webmaster to update this or people will not find the place.

My daily pilgrimage consists of a walk on one of the most beautiful beaches anywhere arriving at El Tablao and parking my butt under an umbrella. Soon a bucket of ice cold Cerveza with some limes and salt are on my table, followed by some delicious seafood. Life does not get better than this.

A large seafood cocktail, a couple of margaritas, family, and good friends, on a beautiful sun soaked beach. . . I really can't think of a better way to spend an afternoon in paradise. What more could you ask for? See you there . . .

El Tablao is in an ideal location on the beach. You can sit up in the restaurant or at the tables they provide you on the beach. The food is really good and the service is excellent. They also have a book lending library on the premises which has a good inventory of English language books.

...which is fine, I guess. There just aren't gourmet experiences in Manzanillo. Fresh seafood prepared simply is the best bet in town. As such, when a restaurant attempts too much (e.g., butter, bacon, cheese vs. chiles, herbs,etc.) you get a place full of calories and sincerity, but utterly lacking in expression. A nice place, a consistent place like your parents'... More

Very modest, unassuming exterior, but as much as Mexico is, you must go beyond the exterior, the wall, the door, the entrance to be wonderfully surprised by the interior---right on the beach---it reminds me of the Mexico of a by-gone era----modest prices, adequate portions, quality food,courteous waiters, traditional Mexican interior---an owner who loves what he does and translates that love...
