Nice atmosphere, really characterful and generally friendly staff, fast service, super margaritas...

On the down side, quality has been known to vary... depending on the dish, some items depending on the plate can sometimes seem as if it were pre-prepare/cooked well in advance, and then finished and served ... basically fast food TexMex ...so not necessarily for the super discerning palate... and for Tex Mex in Geneva there aren't so much choices!

Nice underground bar complements this popular Geneva restaurant.

I first went to this restaurant in the late 1980's...mainly because it was pretty unique in Geneva. In this day and age it's pretty average and it really feels as though they just bought packets of Mexican mixes from supermarkets.There's not much there that can't be recreated at home...and probably much faster than they can serve it to you. Over priced and over rated.

We just past by and thought to go here for dinner. It was a very nice surprise! The fajita's we took were really big. Many fresh vegetables, sauces and perfect cooked meat. After eating you can go down in to the Mexican bar and have some nice cocktails! When we go back to Géneve, this will be on the top of our to do list.

I use to travel to Geneva frequently last 3 years and every visit I spent at least one evening in Manana. Good food and music. Very nice atmosphere.

I visited Manana with friends as we were looking for a lively place to have dinner and a few cocktails. It did have quite a good atmosphere but the food was not good at all. There were 6 of us and we started by ordering a couple of Nacho plates to start, so we received our main meals, followed by our starters (I have never had my main served before my starter before!) .Whilst the Nacho's were satisfactory, all of our mains were covered in so much cheese we could not recognise or taste what was supposed to be on our plates. The staff were quite rude and made us feel as though we were inconveiniencing them. We felt like we were being rushed as only 50 minutes passed between us taking our seating and paying the bill. Considering we booked our table in advance we didn't expect to be rushed like this. We will definitely not be going back.
