We have been visiting Manta Rota for 10 years and Mars Bar is the best place to eat and drink. Avi and Marion always give a warm friendly welcome, the service is great and value for money excellent. See you next year.

After reading reviews and a recommendation myself and 6 others children age 1,6 and 10 went for lunch. The ambience was hit and miss and a male staff member which must be the owner/manager was very frosty towards us. It was a busy small establishment...More

We are always reluctant to suggest ribs as an portion for dinner but they were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the ribs and chicken. The salad dressing on a fresh plate of crisp lettuce, peppers, pickles etc., is so morish.

Mars Bar is one of the most popular restaurants in Manta Rota. I see that there are only two restaurants noted in the Tripadvisor guide. There are at least ten good restaurants and as many cafes in this area. I am happy to give reviews but Mars Bar should be mentioned. Kind regards. Charles McEvoy
