We liked it a lot. The staff was really friendly. The food was delicious. Good vegetarian meals. They have an open kitchen which I think is really nice. Unfortunately we discovered it too late otherwise we would have gone there more often.

We randomly found this quaint restaurant on our first day in Puerto la Cruz and decided to try it out after our 2 data trek up Teide. We managed to get a table on the Wednesday night but decided to nook for the Friday just in case!. I emailed the restaurant to ask if I could book on the Friday.... More

Laid back, small restaurant in the more arty/student area of the town, with a welcoming atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and sevice was very good. The food was well presented and tasty, managing to avoid the starch heavy carbohydrate overload that can pass as the vegetarian option in many restaurants, even the specialist ones. Recommended, but get there early or... More

My husband is vegetarian and it's rare for him to have the run of a full menu, so I was happy to eat here. Our starters were lovely - croquetas and samosas. Main courses however were like a "fridge surprise" I'd rustle up at home on a weeknight - they were fine, tasty, but nothing memorable. Really good organic wine... More

After a full day in La Orotava my wife, her sister and I decided to have dinner in Puerto De La Cruz. We timed our visit to meet El mana's opening time of 18:30. Unfortunatly, due to a bank holiday, the restaurant wasn't going to open until 19:00. It was all I could do to stop the ladies from sitting... More

We enjoyed excellent meals and wine at the restaurant. My vegan partner could choose from several vegan options and my fresh tagliatelle with a walnut pesto sauce was wonderful. It was nice to see the chefs preparing dishes in the kitchen area. El Manà is located in the older part of Puerto de la Cruz. Meals and wine came to... More

I'd recommend this place ... I had given up on finding a vegan restaurant and then I found this place ... food was good customer service was second to none ... food was bit pricy for the island but overall satisfied

We stopped here for lunch. Food was incredible. Absolutley faultless. We shared a starter of indian samosas and then I had a tofu stir fry and my partner had a Thai style veg curry. All was fresh, piping hot and tasted devine. The house wine was the best I have had in a long time. This is a fantastic little... More

Small and personable restaurant with delicious gourmet food. Get many smaller dishes to spread your delight. Usually need to reserve a table ahead of time, which is easy on their website and in English if need be.
