Location and contact

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

Happy vibes and tasty ribs! Welcoming and fun. A must go for anyone visiting this area. Great sangria and cocktails too! Everyone I met told us to go here - and my expectations were met and more!

You can easily drive / walk past this place and think it's empty - a look I always equate with 'don't bother'. We were fortunate enough to be taken there by local friends / residents who took us to the SHADED area at the back...More
