A Secret Mexican Delight, with a sunset to boot!

Our accomodation host Steve at Frendz Resors recommmended Manana, said it was one of his favourites, so we gave it a go. It was a little hard to find the first time,(we walked right past it!), but there is a lot going on when you walk down the beach, so we were distracted but didn't mind the light exercise.
The setting is great like most of the restaurants along the frequented stretch, you have a little indoor dining and of course a some out on the sand, which is perfect to catch the sunset. We got straight down to business and ordered Margaritas (they have a few different flavours) and did not expect the small fish bowls that were delivered to our tables! Lets just say we had an entertaining night!
Our friends had brought along their 2 year old daughter and she was quite happy to play in the sand before and after dinner, but we were all mindful of the heavy foot traffic going by.
The food was sensational too! We currently live in China and it is difficult to find great mexican food and we were delighted with our meals. My personal favorite were the chicken and beef chimichangas, YUM! Now be prepared that as it is an island they may tell you they have run out of certain products, so don't get upset if they take your order and then come back and inform you that you will have to make another choice, it's just the way it goes, so relax.
We ended up going back a second night and enjoyed everythign again even more. In fact we would love to go back to Boracay for another holiday and if we do, this is top of the list for dining for us.
