“Fantastique & authentique Mexican”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Discovered by our 22 year old daughter, you could be forgiven for walking past Manly Mexican without stopping. It has around 15 tables, painted yellow walls, mexican hats on the walls ready to be worn for photos and comes alive once the food starts flowing.

The food is downright delicious. We always start with a large nachos - with a key highlight the salsa - ripe delicious tomatoes with the perfect balance of onions and coriander. And we then share the burritos - chicken, beef, pork - all yummy and filling. The great thing about Manly Mexican is the freshness of the food. And, we like the service which is fast and efficient.

Plus, it is BYO and takes bookings.

“Nacho Grande & Fajita”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

I really enjoy the food at Manly Mex, and go often.
The nacho grande is fantastic value at under $17 for take away.

The fajita's are also fantastic, though I only have this when I eat in.

Staff always friendly and great atmosphere. Call and book to avoid disappointment, very busy.

:D

“Cosy Mexican where locals go In Manly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Lovely family restaurant with really friendly and quick service. Meals have lots of flavours and are generous. John loves the chili concarne. The homemade salsa served with corn chips for free when you sit down is very yummy.
