We had a reservation at 10 pm, but only had a table around 10.40 pm. Service was very friendly, but the food is just overpriced. It was OK, but really not worth it. Watch out, they charge you for the bread.

Price higher than space x of Elon Musk. Ridiculous portion at the end I had to eat something else because I was still hungry. Better places to spend my money!

The restaurant Maní positively surprises its customers. Polite service, tasty meals and pleasant ambiance. The desire to innovate occasionally leads to unsuccessful combinations in some dishes, which does not compromise the experience. Improvements in organization and greater consistency in the menu can lead the Mani...More

Yes. In fact you should to avoid the wait... I think you can do this online via their website. They open at 8:30, so don't expect a reservation earlier than that. Enjoy!
