We had a heads up about a great restaurant in Tarpon Springs called Manolo's. From the moment we arrived on time for our reservations it became apparent the wait staff was in disarray. Once seated the waiter had a hard time with our wine order. Following that the confusion built on order placement minutes later "tell me again what you ordered"?, That said - the food -TERIFFIC. We laughed off the wait problems as it was happening all around us. The warm focaccio was a great start. The salad - excellent. The main entree's of Zarzurla de Mariscos, Pasta Bolanese and Mussels in Salsa Mediterrana all were perfect. The dessert - Tres Leche was the best ever tasted. So our table of four voted - lets return on a weekday and see if the service improves. The table behind us told the waiter they had been there now three times with some problems and the waiter asked if they are the ones that wrote the "bad review." Hummm - and so it goes. There is a lot of forgiveness in GREAT FOOD!
P.S. We were told our waiter, as we guessed, was the owners family!
