Pleasant atmosphere outside where the large tree serves as an umbrella. Excellent service, great margaritas, and good food too.

We enjoyed the Chicken & Beef Fajitas Quesadillas along with the Chicken Flautas. Their Guacamole is very good

I usually get the tostadas capitalinas or the chili relleno del elote. Excellent taste. The chips and salsa are memorable and you will want more. They have started charging for the salsa after the first delivery. Something that I am very much against and am unhappy with. My wife gets the vege flautas. She says they are wonderful. THe flan...

We visit Austin often and Manuel's is always a restaurant we visit. Downtown Austin is crowded and parking is often difficult and expensive and we actually enjoy the larger space of the Great Hills location. The service is always efficient and the wait staff pleasant. How's the food? Well, it is consistently delicious and there is something for everyone to... More

Manuel's is one of our regular restaurants. It is upscale "Mexican Food." The service is excellent and the chef is very attentive to the patrons delights or comments. The seafood is their specialty. We always bring visitors from out of town to Manuel's for a memorable dining experience.

Went here for dinner after a long day at a conference. (6 adults) I love the water features when you first walk in. It was a bummer that it was raining so we couldn't sit outside. The inside is just fine... warm welcoming environment. Our server Welton (sp?) was wonderful. Answered all of our questions, gave suggestions, and had fun... More

I am in Austin, Texas at least 4 times a year and my favorite meal is Chicken Flautas with Suiza sauce, rice and guacamole at Manuel's North at Great Hills! The seasoning and preparation are perfection. The atmosphere is welcoming, modern and well appointed. Appetizers are half price during their "Happy Hour" and it is a great time to explore... More

The food was suppose to be authentic Mexican food which may have swayed by vote as I'm used to Tex-Mex. I had the 2 fajita tacos off the lunch menu for $10. The tacos were small and not all that flavorful. Black beans were ok.

Manuel's (Mexican cuisine) Great Hills, was consistently fine eating at lunch or dinner. Shrimp nachos, fresh fish, pork medallions were wonderful. and obviously not your usual tacos and tortillas. Now it is still consistent...consistently bad, that is. This seems to have happened when there was a huge change in waiters and cooks, about a year ago. Sadly, we have lost... More
