I've known La Manta for a while, I go there every time I come to surf in Pavones. This year the people running the place have changed, they put together a whole new menu and fixed the place up really great. The food is AMAZING now!! It's right at the beach, first place on your left side when entering town. They take photos and videos of the surfers during the day and project them on the big screen. The restaurant is like an open movie theatre, super cool. Love it, and love the new owners, great job guys!

The food is always fresh and very tasty. Each and every plate has Anna's touch to it. Anna is very much the perfectionist when it comes to fresh ingredients for the days selections. We were in the area for 5 weeks and spent alot of time with the staff. They made us feel welcome and at home each and every time. We celebrated our 23 anniversary here, and why not you are no more than 150 feet from the ocean, and the sunsets!!!! Ruey the bartender is the local, Medic, welder, builder, and of course surfer. We look foward to going back, not only for the great food, but for the smiles and friendship, both of which we will miss till then.

I had a great time, the staff people are International! I met wonderful people here, and the coolest thing that I saw, was that after a day surfing, they would play a video of all the surfers that rode waves at the point in Pavones. Great cocktails and food, and excellent prices! Sunset time is the best with great happy hour promotions...

I want to go back soon! :)
