stopped in for a cold drink

we decided after a hot day to stop in for a few drinks and after looking at the menu I ordered the fish and rice dinner. It was very tasty and the drinks were very well made, not watered down like many places. The service was a little slow to bring us water initially and also to bring our second... read more

We enjoyed staying at this hotel, and ate here a few times. The food is decent, but there are better options in the area.

We stayed here at hotel ManGaby for a week and breakfast was included with our stay. However, on our first night here, we decided to have dinner here as well. I had grilled red snapper and it was absolutely delicious! The staff is friendly and attentive, although the breakfast service seems to overwhelm the kitchen cooks at times. But the... More

In an effort to try as many restaurants in Playa Hermosa as possible we decided to give this place a shot. We were greeted by the owner and treated like VIP guests for our entire meal. The food was fantastic, the service was first class and the atmosphere was perfect. Now top that off with great prices and you get... More

ManGaby prepared a dinner for my large group and everything went so well. We started with a salad bar, then had a choice of 4 entrees and dessert. Their menu has great options as well. We'll be back!

Behind the Pool at the hotel of same name. A little hard to find but worth the effort. The Casado lunch was excellent and service was very good. Quiet, airy and pleasant location on first beach access road.

We received a very warm welcome upon arrival that set the mood for the evening. My husband and uncle and I each ordered a different entree and all were delicious. My arroz con pollo was the best I have had anywhere-beautifully flavored with the perfect amount of spice and fresh diced vegetables. My husband had red snapper and my uncle... More

Went there based on recommendation from fellow traveler. It was a very pleasant surprise. You have to really look for this restaurant at the back of the pool. The food was very good and the service was excellent. On two visits, for dinner and lunch, the waiters were very friendly and efficient. They hustled to make sure we were happy.... More
