Nice little place with a beautiful view that was recommended by a local and it was across the street from our hotel. We were a group of 11 people and the wait to get dinner was over an hour and the place was empty when we got there. They have happy hour between 5 pm and 11 pm with two... More

We happened upon this place on a recommendation. It didn't disappoint. There weren't too many people when we were seated but by the time we ordered the place filled up! The seafood platter for 2 was amazing! Lobster tails, jumbo shrimp, while red snapper...perfect cooked and delicious. It was also happy hour and the drinks were refreshing.

We went to Mar Luna the first night we arrived in Manuel and it was absolutely fantastic!! The setting of the restaurant is gorgeous, and we caught amazing views of the sunset. The food was also some of the best I've had here. I had grilled chicken with rice and beans and it compares to nothing I've had anywhere else.... More

Excellent whole grilled red snapper. Family hoovered up the nachos. Drinks were tasty but a bit weak. Casual place that offers good value in this area.

We came here for a late lunch and we had very quick and friendly service. Excellent drink specials on cocktails that were a generous size. We were brought chips and salsa while we waited for our food (excellent by the way) and our entrees were great! This restaurant has excellent views and fair prices for the large portions you get.

Simple preparations, excellent sauces, the freshest ingredients make this place a standout in standouts around the world. The creamy seafood soup is an art in soup. The seafoods and sauces just make you want to stay and eat till you can't eat anymore then return for the next meal. Prices are reasonable and they have a happy hour daily. My... More

Looking for a good fish dinner, we decided to try Mar Luna. Only 2 types of fish. Long wait. Snapper was so bad, I was unable to take more than 2 bites.

This restaurant offers a wide selection of fresh, well prepared seafood. I couldn't decide what to eat so I ordered a mixed seafood plate with grilled tuna, red snapper and shrimp. At $24 it was one of the more expensive menu options, but could've easily fed two. My friend also raved about her snapper entree. We got there after dark... More

This is a must if you are staying in MA! Everything is fresh and delicious! Although there is fresh seafood all over MA, this is the best. It is a straight forward menu, service is great. We went with a large party of new friends we made at our hotel and had a variety of entrees. Everyone enjoyed their dinner... More
