We were seated at a table right at the edge by the water overlooking the boats docked at the marina. It was really beautiful, quite romantic; the colourful linens are a charming touch. We were there on a relatively quiet night, which may have also added to the ambience. Most tables were occupied but there weren't a lot of people wandering about the marina.

My boyfriend had a beautiful salad that he just raved about! And the dorado el tablao, which he was also very pleased with. I had the tortilla soup which was very nice and the fish and chips--very tasty. The fish was not done in a traditional batter, but was more 'crusted' I suppose. Different, but delicious.

The service was very good, and the chef also stopped by the table to see how we were enjoying our meal; very sweet. If we have the opportunity to come back, I would love to arrive a bit earlier to see more of the view, as it was dark by the time we arrived. A really lovely evening.

Excellent service and food during our visit. Nice outdoor seating at the marina which added to the ambiance. Waiter was extremely attentive and the owner came out to check if everything was to our liking. Look forward to visiting again.

This restaurant, situated at the Marina Las Hadas, is a lovely, outdoor dining area.
There are many delicious options on the menu - we dined here twice! The flamenco shrimp were scrumptious, and the filet mignon was amazing. The fish & chips and the"dorado el tablao" (fish filet - mahi mahi, I think) here were top notch as well. These folks also know how to make an amazing margarita!!

Service was great - the guys were attentive, charming and entertaining. It was lovely having the marina and the ocean as a view; the only drawback being that the pathway to the nearby beach runs essentially through the dining area, so that takes away from the ambiance just a little.

All-in-all - it's worth the cab/bus ride over to Las Hadas to dine at El Tablao!

This great restaurant had moved to Las Hadas Marina in Manzanillo and they have also improved their menu and the service was top notch! Many of the waiters had a wonderful sense of humor and spoke excellent English. We would highly recommend this restaurant for a special evenings dining under the stars while you watch the boats rock in the beautiful breeze

We had gone in the past to their previous location on the beach at Santiago so we tried the new location at the Marina of Las Hadas for dinner under the stars. Four of us and we all very much enjoyed the service and the food. Very nice atmosphere with a fantastic view of the marina, the beach eastward all the way to Manzanillo. Prices reasonable including wine. Highly recommend.
