Went here for an event brunch. The breakfast options were really good. The Mimosa's were great. The Margarita that was supposed to have Cointreau in it didn't taste like it even though it was priced like it.

We had dinner here one night as our concierge recommended it. What an awesome place. I enjoyed my cocktail and really liked my beef fajitas. The service was fast and friendly. We really wanted to go back here again while we were in Austin

Visiting Austin it’s hard to choose juuuuust which restaurant to eat at. It was Cinco de Mayo so that helped narrow our search AND I wanted to visit the famous “Bat Bridge” which is close to Manuel’s. I had a yummy spicy Margarita and the...More
