Outstanding restaurant in front of the beach. Friendly and courteous service. Restaurant manager Joao Cruz goes above and beyond to ensure total guest satisfaction. Wow! Seafood dishes their specialty, but based on what I tasted here I bet all the dishes are amazing. Definitely recommend.

The Manary Gastronomy & Art, restaurant in the eponymous hotel, is very well located, almost inside the Ponta Negra beach. There are two dining spaces, an outdoor, infront of the pools and other indoor, air-conditioned. The place is really beautiful; the view stunning. The menu consists of a few but varied dishes (starters, salads, fish and seafood, meat, pasta and... More

This is an elegant place with outside and inside dining, offering a wide range of foods, mean fish and sea food. I recommend the shrimp risotto that goes down very well with a Malbec red wine. Although sea food is usually preferred with white wine, the shrimp risotto is so rich that the Malbec is a better choice. Try to... More

We have been at Manary twice and the combination of food and environment is in our opinion the best of all restaurants we have been to during our 7 weeks in Ponta Negra. The starters consisting of 4 vertical skewers of spiced prawns and the baked oysters are both delicious. Main Courses as scampi risotto and Asias inspired stir fried... More

We were staying at the Manary for 3 nights - we unusually like to eat out in different places every night on holiday - but the food was so good the first night of our stay we didn't want to eat anywhere else! We tried a few things on the menu - not one meal disappointed us. Everything was delicious,... More

We had dinner at Manary just now, I took a beef fillet stake and my partner took a risotto. Both dinner plates had to be returned to the kitchen as my beef steak was over salty and the risotto was not as expected from the best seafood restaurant in Natal. Bit disappointing to be honest. The Manager was amazing and... More

After a month of below average food in Brazil this place has saved the day. Have eaten here twice. You can tell actual thought has gone into the dishes as the flavours are combined really well.
