Best in manta rota

The best restaurant in manta rota, relation quality/price top! The seafood is great, and the price is very reasonable. Nice service, it only lacks a better interior design. But it's a classic Portuguese restaurant, the "Thing" is the food!

We have been waiting for a table more than 40 minutes. Bad quality and terrible service... A grumpy waiter attended us throwing the forks and drinks away. Very hot inside and you can only pay by card if you are portuguese. At 2.00 pm there werent the most popular dishes of the menu

Go here if you like grilled fish particularly sea bass washed down with vino verde. Tasty. The decor is basic but the owner and staff are friendly. Food is served with salad.

We've eaten here countless times since 2007. We've never been dissappointed, Antonio the owner and his staff work very hard to please the legions of customers. The fish seam bream, sea bass, salmon, hake, trout, monkfish are excellent, the boiled or fried shrimps are to die for. Pork and clams is a speciality. Dishes come with vegetables and side salad....

It speaks for itself that Manta Rota Restaurant attracts its customers all year... More
