We returned to Manao Cebicheria during our visit to Nuevo Vallarta again this year and it didn't disappoint. The ceviche is fresh and filled with flavor. They have added new items to their menu but our favorites are still there. We will return!

It is a tiny place- 4 tables inside, 2 outside. Great service. Good food, even for someone like me who is not adventurous. I had the cooked shrimp tacos, hubby the raw sea bass. Presentation excellent.
