It is located west of San Carlos on the road to El Palmar (directly across the road from Carlitto's Pizza.

The mangler restaurant is hidden away at the end of the road towards the point, a short walk, maybe five minutes from El Palmar beach.

Manglar by far offers the best "American" style breakfast in this entire area! They have huge omelettes full of fresh veggies or meat, French toast, fluffy pancakes, and great prices! They also have a full bar so you an have a morning cocktail if you're craving a Bloody Mary or Tequila Sunrise!

The food is really good and the service is great! There is variety in the menu and the drinks as well. Whether you want a good wine or a good smoothie.
