Description: For more than 30 years Manuel's has thrived in Austin, Texas, delighting local residents, politicos, musicians, students, and our favorite grandmothers. From the farm to the sea, we harvest local and natural ingredients to create food that is infused with a deep collection of flavors, and steeped in tradition. From our award-winning mole to our famous margaritas, we aspire to transport our guests to a place of timeless satisfaction.

Our concierge recommended Manuel's for Mexican food and it did not disappoint. Both my coworker and I enjoyed our meals (I had Mole). They have some pretty great cocktails especially with Tequila. The restaurant is somewhat upscale, but laid back and comfortable. We ate at the bar, which was nice. It's in a good location downtown, which is easy to get to from most people

Great pick for a business lunch. Price was reasonable and food was fantastic! Manager came to table to check on us and was readily available to assist servers. Nice!

We had great drinks - their food is awesome - I always get chiles rellenos en nogada - a favorite... My cousin had the tuna ceviche and we shared the awesome queso blanco - my husband had the swordfish and my other cousin had the chicken poblano soup - a great time was had by our entire family - our waiter made sure we had everything we needed for this to happen!

Service was excellent, presentation of food was beautiful. The food itself was good, but nothing fabulous. Drinks were very tasty. Everything was overpriced. Probably would not go here again, especially with all the other choices for good Mexican food in Austin.
