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

We asked the hotel where we were staying a good place to eat and they said by far Manolo was the best. They said usually there are lines outside the restaurant waiting to get in. We didnt have to wait and the food was extremely disappointing. Ordered fish and it had no taste.... my friend ordered the rabas one and... More

Arguably the most popular restaurant in Mar del Plata, any day of the week, lunch or dinner, there's a long queue to be seated. It goes without saying that I had to try it. I ordered seafood pasta which came in a huge portion but the quality wasn't that which you expect from a place where you queue up for... More

This is a review of the main street Manolo restaurant. We waited in line for about 15 minutes to get in. As the friend in line with me said, you can tell a good restaurant when you have to wait. The restaurant was recommended to us by some Mar del Plata locals. For sure this is a "real" institution. The... More

I have been to Manolo several times and I've always had a good experience. Their pizza selection is great, best cafe con leche in Mar del Plata and amazing churros con dulce de leche. It is open 24 hours which comes in handy after a late night of pub crawling in the Playa Grande area.
