Being a fully signed up, card carrying carnivore this was a fantastic surprise. The chocolate stout was great and IPA really good. The food was subtle and so different for me, we ordered some things again.Mushroom Croquet's and Samosas my favorite but all great and no meat in sight.Will go again and will recommend. Service excellent and not intrusive. A... More

Had a wonderful dinner here. Food great. Vegetarian but even if you're big on meat- give it a try, Absolutely brilliant cooking and friendly attentive service. The best food we ate in Puerto.

The food is great. We had goat cheese nests, with honey and fresh thyme. Not sure how the chef makes the nests, but they taste wonderful. We also had a ravioli with sweet potato and orange. Unexpected and delicious. The tiramasu and coffee were also very good.

I loved this place! Really tasty food, things I had never thought of like papaya and cheese. Great wine (I'm not a massive wine buff but it was lovely) local ales, friendly staff. Don't be put off by it being vegetarian - you will not be bored by it!

This restaurant offers good food made from local ingredients. They put effort on presentation, service and atmosphere. They also have a good wine list and offer some special beers. Our portions looked great and were pretty nice but they were little bit bland when it comes to taste. Desserts however where delicious! All and all one the nicest restaurants in... More

We thought this was a very good place to eat. We just had one evening meal here and were more than happy. We had a main course each (I had the stir-fry and my husband had a salad) which we both thought were lovely, then we shared a tiramisu, which finished off the meal nicely. We thought the service was... More

We went back to El Mana for lunch yesterday - the second time in a week - because we enjoyed it so much the first time. The food was very fresh and tasty, and a change from the usual tapas fare. Once again, everything - from the soup to a crisp salad and Thai style stir-fried vegetables - was very... More

We are a vegetarian and a meat eater and both of us found this restaurant excellent. We liked everything about this restaurant which specializes in vegan, vegetarian and organic food. The starters (goat cheese nests) were perfect and we also liked our main courses - especially the pasta of the day was delicious. Wine was excellent and service polite. Even... More
