Description: Mars Bar is one of the most popular restaurants in Manta Rota. I see that there are only two restaurants noted in the Tripadvisor guide. There are at least ten good restaurants and as many cafes in this area. I am happy to give reviews but Mars Bar should be mentioned. Kind regards. Charles McEvoy

“No trip to Manta Rota Is complete without taking a trip to Mars Bar.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Well we have spent many an enjoyable hour or three at Avi's & Marion's bar. We have sampled most of food and all is presented very well. We have taken quite a likening to Marikns Garlic Mayonaise with a tipple or 2. Ribs and Kebab's are a perfect dish. Only 1 minor in my reckoning is lack of fish. There are 2 other restaurants in immediate vicinity for the Fish, restaurant Manta Rota and Aproa. Looking forward to our next visit real soon.

“Friendly and good value !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Have been to Mars Bar many times. Down to earth, good quality no-nonsense food. Ideal for casual dining. The owners are really friendly and welcoming - try the breakfasts, lovely and you won't have to eat again for hours !!

“Fantastic atmosphere, great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

This place is great. Kid friendly (which is must for us, as we have 4 young ones) and a great menu too. I popped in for lunch with my husband and had a salad, he had a burrito, both grand.
We've been for an evening meal, and split portions of ribs between us, 8 piece between my husband and myself, my eldest had a three piece, my father in law and younger son split a 5 piece, and my daughters split a daily special pasta dish. ALL gorgeous!
