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

Just had a great lunch at Manuel's. Started with chip, salsa and guacamole which were all very good. Had the fajita tacos for lunch which was solid but not the absolute most amazing thing I've ever had. The star of lunch was the watermelon margarita, this is a must have! Go get one now!

I had a craving for good Mexican food place, and as this was a place my fiancée and I drove past often, we decided to check it out. We arrived at the tail end of the Saturday evening dinner rush, so we didn’t need reservations (our wait was short). The interior was spacious, and not at all noisy (as is... More

Decided to have lunch at Manuel's Arboretum yesterday. Nice surprise that it was actually cool enough to eat on the patio, when the forecast was in the high 80's. Our waiter was Alphonso, and he had a new employee Jose, with him. Both were exceptionally pleasant, told us about specials for the day. Attentive, and not at all bothersome. We... More

We have been to both downtown and great hills locations. The food downtown is usually better and so is the service. Our server at great hills had very few tables as it was still early for their crowds there - but took forever to get our drinks to us and to take our order. Contrast that to how promptly the...
