We're staying at Hotel Marbella. Our first morning we had breakfast at their restaurant. They have a large buffet with many choices from egg dishes to meats, cereal, yoghurt, juices, etc. Surely something for every taste. They have a full bar and three dining rooms; one an open-air room facing the ocean.

Very good seafood. The waiter's explanation of the menu was confusing (both in English and Spanish), but the staff was attentive. The paella Valenciana was enough food for 9 meals.

This is a good Spanish style restaurant, mainly for seafood but also other alternatives. Portions are big and well served and brought to the table in a timely manner. Shrimp, fish, octopus are good choices, or a shrimp soup that is really tasty. In addition you can eat enjoying a terrace with a beautiful sight of the bay.

The restaurant is part of Hotel El Miramar. So, you must call the Hotel, who in turn transfers you to the restaurant. We were interested in a Paella. They offered 2: Regular at $10. MXN, and the Elaborate Paella which contained additional seafood, such as, lobster, octopus, etc. at $640. MXN. I arrived at 6 PM with my son and... More

Unaccommodating to handicap, would not allow service dog even though there were no customers. I would not recommend this place solely on that premise. What a shame nice location. We ended up at Toscanos which was wonderful and treated us with respect.

This restaurant is just a more upscale version of the hotel's regular restaurant. The menu is similar. The food was good, but not worth the price they charge. Plus, they close the kitchen at 10:30 pm. Similar or better food could have been found outside the hotel for less money. Also, they don't have any places to plug in your... More

Pros. - Worth a visit in some points, especially when you have some visitors. It is an indoor restaurant with air conditioners, while most restaurants on the coast of Manzanillo are open spaced ones. It means it is free from mosquitos, hot weather and humidity. - Serve pretty well made Spanish dishes. If you want to try something different from... More
