A great place to eat if you're vegan, yes the service may be a little slow if you're used to fast food but at least you're not eating something bunged in the microwave for 30 seconds. I thought the wait was acceptable personally. The owners must have read the previous reviews as there was no bread upon arrival and we... More

A gem of a find. Really tasty mains and dessert. Very pleased we found this restaurant and highly recommend to anyone looking for something different and it just so happens to be vegetarian too which suited our family of vegetarian and non-vegetarians alike.

Staff and setting are great. We had to wait quite a while for our food but when it arrived it was delicious. They also had a good selection of non-alcoholic drinks. My only gripe is that e were given bread and dips to nibble on, we did not order these but were charged for them. If we are in Puerto... More

Good food but nothing exceptional. Great presentation. Slow service. Didn't like the fact that they put in the bill the 4 pieces of bread served as entrance but they were simply not ordered... simply not ok! For the rest good place to eat.

I'm not vegetarian but this was just excellent food. Great selection of foods, eco bears and wines. Extremely well presented (obviously they have a posh chef). Everything was very tasty, good service. Starter, main, dessert and a glass of wine was €30.

Very good food and service. I am not vegan or vegetarian but it made no difference as the food is so good it doesn't matter. The waitress spoke English and was very pleasant. They also have a good wine menu and the atmosphere is very pleasant. It is a little on the pricey side but for a special vegan/vegetarian treat... More

A really lovely restaurant tucked away in one of the sidestreets very close to the town centre- the atmosphere is very cosy, quiet and homely with incredibly helpful and nice staff. The menu has a great choice of food, all of it vegetarian. The kitchen where the food is prepared can be seen from the main body of the restaurant... More

Delicious meal. Pretty dining room. Friendly service. Good background music. When we first walked around Puerto de la Cruz, el Mana was clearly a popular place ... so we reserved a table for the following night. We ordered the salad of dried fruits, the tagliatelle with mushrooms and goat cheese, local wine and a scumptious desert. Couldn't have been better.

The first time we tried to eat here it was fully booked, which is always a good sign. We managed to reserve for another day and it was the best meal of the holiday. A great selection of beers that you don't see in the other restaurants and the wine was also very nice. Almost everything on the menu sounded... More
