On our regular trips to San Jose each year, we always visit Las Tapas de Manuel and have never been disappointed with the food or service. Flamingo Show on weekends a great plus. Great ambiance.

Decent place for tapas. Some of the dishes are good, but nothing really stands out on the menu as exceptional. There are better options for paella elsewhere. The waiters were attentive. If you're looking for tapas to drink a night away in Escaut, then it's...More
