We had dinner at Manao Cebicheria a little over a month ago while staying at Vidanta Resort. It's pretty much a storefront at a new-ish but sparsely occupied commercial plaza about 100 yards east of El Barracuda in the N.V. Marina area. Decoration of the place is simple and contemporary; it could easily be mistaken for an ice cream or... More

Don't even recall the preparations wife and I ordered this time. Hers had something to do with ceviche in a jar though it was not actually in a jar. I had never tired my preparation before but it was great. Fishermen may not go out on Sunday night so no fresh fish Monday morning when Hassan goes to La Cruz... More

I was in Nuevo Vallarta for work and stopped by this place three times during my trip. The owners are lovely people who are happy to make recommendations based on what's fresh that day. I tried the (seasonal) mango aguachile and the chipotle tuna, both were outstanding. Make sure to save room for their equally impressive homemade desserts. The key... More

This is by far the best cerviche and it is a must try. As other readers have stated it is best to make reservations. If they do not receive any fresh fish that day they are not open. They have added a few new dishes to the menu. Some dishes may take up to 30 minutes to prepare. The owners... More

If you like ceviche you've got to try! It's best to make a reservation for lunch or dinner. They are open 1p-8p and take credit cards. Everything is good on the menu. We make it a point to come every time we visit.

We love ceviche and this little restaurant was not a disappointment! They have an assortment of fresh fish to choose from, and then an assortment of recipes to choose from. We had the Vallarta and Izqui ceviche, and both were outstanding! Cheese Quesadilla and Fish Tacos were excellent, as well. A must, is to save room for a piece of... More

Very nice restaurant, quite small but very very good with very fresh food. Flavours are very interesting: mexican flavour, asian flavour, strong diversity of dishes and owners are very dedicated to clients. Better to reserve prior in high season, and you can bring your bottle. The place to eat

Food is totally fresh and original ! This is a truly wonderful experience. Even for those who don't think they can do 'raw" food, you will love it; it's just "cooked" a different way! This is really "foodie" and healthy person's delight that everyone will just love! Simple and elegant 😊
