Now, I have to say I don't like fish. Shrimp yes. Lobster certainly. Crab, definitely. But fish!? Meh. However when I asked the server what was the best thing on the menu he directed me to the Fish Relleno and it was AMAZING. I did...More

We were brought here by our local friends who said it was a 'must see' and they were so right! Located in the little sleepy fishing village of La Manga just outside San Carlos, the waiters are truly amazing with their knowledge of the local...More

Eating here made me very happy. Simple place with fresh seafood and strong margarita. We visited twice for lunch on our stay in San Carlos. Looking forward to bringing family when we are back in town next month. Great view of the water and mountains.

When my family visited in March, the lunch at La Manga was their favorite. The drive through the village was intriguing and the restaurant has the best views, always the freshest food and a great waitstaff. Always a highlight when we want something special and...More

First of all, you can't beat the view. The restaurant is open on 3 sides to view the sea. The catch of the day was served grilled in an open oven (charcoal) whole and served with rice, cole slaw and tortillas. It was delicious. One...More

Back again this year, one of our first stops was La Manga. I had the moltajete caliente - a superb "stew" of octopus, crab, shrimp, oysters, and other seafood baked until steaming hot, then sprinkled with fresh cheese. Others in our party had fish filets...More

Views of the sea of Cortez are amazing. The seafood was priced very well for the size of the portions. The portions were sufficient for a person to leave feeling satisfied. The quality of the food was outstanding.

It's a bit of a drive, but well worth it. A million dollar view, and stellar food. You have to try the raw clams if that works for you - they were the highlight of the entire trip. The lobster was really tasty, but had...More

Just in the area for a night, we didn't have a chance to try the competition but I could not be happier with our choice of La Manga Restaurante. North of San Carlos, a rutted 4 km. dirt road, through a run-down fishing camp and...More
