This little jem of a place is mellower and friendlier than a beach party in 1970s California. It’s owned by our new friends Gloriana, a lovely, vibrant Costa Rican girl, and Thomas, a smashing, friendly Parisian guy. One of my ambitions in life is to hang out with these people again.
They’re a wonderful couple who befriended my girlfriend and me to the point where they have an open invite to stay with us when they’re next in the UK. We also went on an amazing boat trip with them to meet wild dolphins and manatees (hooray!) and had a meal with them on our last night at Manzanillo. They’re really special people and it was great to meet such open, friendly and like-minded people 6,000 miles from home. I’m not suggesting that everyone should expect this, we were just lucky in that they had some time as it was the slow season when we were there – but I’m mentioning it as you need to know how great these people are!
G and T set this groovy, chilled out little place up only five months before we found it, and very cool it is too. Firstly, the food is lovely – absolutely the most flavoursome and delicious pizza I’ve had, and they also made us a mouth watering salad, a trick Gloriana repeated (but with different flavours) on a subsequent visit, when we went as invited friends, not customers.
I can’t thank G and T enough for helping to make the last couple of days of our holiday so special. It was a great honour to meet them – they’re really bright, talented people with some fantastic experiences behind them, and they’re great and friendly company as well as fine chefs. I have no doubt you’ll experience similar levels of warmth and good cheer if you go to Funky Manga, and if you do, they’ve got some great tips for things to do in Manzanillo, too.
