When in doubt go for Manolo

Manolo is the rare type of place that can be considered a cafeteria, diner or restaurant. I have been at several of their locations and it's always a relief for me when I see their signs. The menu is vast, prices reasonable. The service is for the most part very good although it can be hectic and... read more

Food is good quality, portions are quite large and price reasonable. If you sit by the window or outside you can have a great sea view. What is amazing at Manolo are the churros, you can't go to Manolo and not have them or do what we usually do, have launch there and do churros take away for the afternoon... More

Best churros I've ever had! Warm filled with dulce de Leche! Cheap and amazing! Long waits to get into restaurant but separate lines for just buying churros

Massive menu, massive sizes, massive queues. Quality is average and so is service. Prefer scenic locations, if preferably.

This is THE place to go in mar del Plata to eat churros, Some of the best ones probably in the country. You have to try the typical ones from Argentina that are with their dulce de leche (a type of caramel) inside. There is 2 parts of the restaurant the bootom portion that sells essentially churros, people come and... More

Really long menu, get there early unless you plan on waiting in the street for an hour. They do a terrible job of seating people, so a single person may wind up in a table meant for a party or 6. The food is good, nothing too special but fresh and good quality. Not all of the prices are as... More

Always eat here when my mom comes to visit or with my friends. The food is very good and the dishes are huge! The only bad thing about it is that in summer or in holiday weekends you have to wait hours in line to get a table. But the overall experience is great! i strongly reccomend it.

overrated by locals, i've eaten here a few times with friends, and it was good, but not like they brag about here, kinda pricey for what it is, and you will most always wait inline outside half hour or so, a few locations, worth a visit as it is good, the one on the coast has a great ocean view...

We were taken there as part of our visit to Mar Del Plata and really enjoyed the atmosphere - even though it was a bit more quiet than it normally is according to those in the know. The menu was extensive and the food across the boar was perfect. The deserts were devine and for someone with a sweet tooth,... More
