“Cracking restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

Really nice mexican restaurant that serves excellent food and very nice cocktails that are cheap before 20:00. They also do a fine fillet steak if you have some non mexican eaters in your group.

“Charming.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

Very very decent Mexican food in Poland and I lived in Chicago where they have some of the best. The waitress was a delight. Made a couple of mistakes with order but was so gracious.

“Unrivalled service in Krakow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

I have visited Manzana numerous times over the past year, both for drinks and food.

On my first visit, my friends and I were there for drinks. We were served at our table in the bar almost immediately by a very friendly, very professional lady who turned out to be the front of house manager. We were very impressed with the whole experience so decided to come back for food.

Our return a few weeks later was certainly no disappointment. We were recognised and looked after exceptionally well. The quality of the food was great. One friends had the ribs, whilst another had a tex-mex style dish. I had a steak with a blue cheese butter. It was one of the nicest steaks I have had in Poland. Well cut, well aged and cooked exactly to my taste. In Krakow, it is rare to find both quality of beef and a chef that can knows how to cook it properly. The food is prepared in an open-plan style kitchen which adds to the atmosphere.

I have been back several times since and really look forward to it, whether for drinks or food. I can think of nowhere in Krakow with service on par with Manzana.

“Good mexican food, not very happy with drink recommendation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

We wanted to go for a Mexican dinner and chose this restaurant as it was close to the place we stayed in and it had pretty good reviews.

We were a little bit disappointed as there was no chili con carne in the menu but finally we ordered chili con carne burrito and fajitas. They were really tasty and as spicy as we liked ( you can order how spicy do you want the food to be). There was plenty of food so we filled our stomachs after a long day.

We had long island ice tea and a blue margarita. Margarita was ok but not very special. We asked for a recommendation for a second drink, said that it can be with tequila but no whisky and the waitress said she would ask the bartender for recommendation. We agreed she can surprise us but we got long island ice tea which is one of the strongest and most expensive coctails. She didn't ask how strong we wanted it but I would not give long island ice tea for anybody without asking. Plus very convenient it was quite expensive.

In general I would recommend that place as the food was really nice but just to be on the safe side you should specify what you want and not follow any recommendations

Excellent food, good service and nice surroundings! Perfect for a night out, as the restaurant also has a bar, with the best drinks in Krakow! I always recommend this restaurant to everyone going to Krakow!
