This is a tiny gem in manly, tucked away in an arcade. The fitout is cool, the staff are cool and the food is fantastic. The best Mexican in manly and the margaritas are excellent.

Try the corn too...

A cool Mexican place bursting with flavour and personality in the back of one of the many Manly arcades. The steak fries (or cheese fries for veggies!) are an absolute must! Try the cocktails too! An truly fantastic small bar!

Fantastic Mexican food, even deemed delicious/authentic by my Mexican girlfriend. Very simple menu but it's clear they do a few things and do them right. Everything was very fresh. All of our food came out quickly and was very filling. Loved the burritos listed! A real "Hole in the Wall" kind of place. Hard to find, but ask a local how to get there as it seems they have ALL eaten there at some point.

Were locals and would eat here at least once a week after work or on the weekend.
They have a simple menu but is always fresh and amazing
You can't book and will easily wait an hour for a table any night of the week but well worth the wait. Put your name down and go grab a drink at the pub next door then come back for your amazing food.
Cocktails are awesome and they have local beers.
Highly recommend for couples or small groups large ones don't work here and probably not families with kids.

Chica Bonita has fresh food and a good vibe. It's small, so you sometimes get relegated to one the tables in the passage, where they can't serve alcohol, so belly up to the bar and enjoy a margarita while you wait for a table inside. And order some chips and quac with that margarita, and you won't mind the wait at all. It's a favorite of Manly locals, and the staff are laid back and friendly. Definitely try the fish taco, which is not sold at lunchtime, so drop by at least once for dinner.
