“Fantastic all around dining experience......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

What an experience of a Mexican dining experience in the quaint, bustling little village of Abersoch. This has to be the best experience we have ever experienced.
Get there early to book a table in person as this restaurant, given that it is by far the best dining experience in Abersoch, gets very busy indeed.

“Looks can be deceiving”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Went here after reading the reviews on here,
the restaurant doesn't particularly look like a Mexican restaurant both from the outside and once you step inside but.........
our party really enjoyed the food, really tasty, service was very good, the place was quite busy,
would definitely recommend and return if I go back to Abersoch

“Worth the wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

In high season don't try booking by phone for this place as they give preference to customers that queue in the flesh! - Luckily when we queued on a Friday night mid August the weather was fine (be sure to get there early as the snake trail can start shortly after 5pm (they open at 6pm) - anyway standing around outside for 1/2 hour aside we eventually got through the hallowed portals and booked a table for 2 at 8pm that same night. We returned at the allotted time and the place was in full swing. Great atmosphere and the clientel changes from mainly young families at 6pm to older punters around 8pm (that would be us then!) - the food was great as was the service from the busy waitresses and not too pricey! - All in all a decent enjoyable night out - we will be back when we next return to Aber.

“Excellent meal @ Manana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

We had an excellent meal here on my birthday last week. We hadn't booked and arrived at approx 7.30pm, we were seated by 7.50pm. There's a real buzz in the restaurant, great atmosphere! The food was superb! Will definitely re-visit next time we're in Abersoch!

“Mui bien! Get queuing and get ready for a great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

We stumbled on Mañana by chance - people started queuing, I fancied Mexican and decided to join the queue...my husband thought I was mad! Oh my goodness, it was well worth the wait as they open at 6 and don't take reservations. Staff were amazing, the place was buzzing! We had some of the best mussels we've had Ian while - fresh from the Straights of Menai and delicious in their spicy broth...scrumptious! The menu was extensive and our mela was divine - we'll definitely come back! Little recommendation would be to have one person in the queue while the other one gets a drink from one of the local bars :) and brings it to the queue!
