Loved the food at this excellent Mexican restaurant. The mole dishes were delicious and the service, warm and accommodating. The serving portions were large and the menu was so diverse.

I get it that everything is expensive in Austin even MEXICAN food. But when you pay more you expect more. So Tortilla soup with no chicken and shrimp cocktail with tw small pieces of shrimp? This is unacceptable.

We were looking for a place to eat close to Fujiyama, and after reading the reviews here, we decided on Manuel's. As previously noted here the "Ceviche Juan" is quite nice. A little bit of a bite, a lot of fish and it's large enough...More

Attended a business dinner meeting here and had great food and service. Everyone happy with their appetizers, cocktails, and meals. I ordered the ceviche tower-style and LOVED it.

Manuel's used to be my "go to " spot for upscale Mexican-style food. After being gone for several years I went back. Big mistake. I ordered queso for the table and it was so thick and gooey that it was inedible. Like eating cheese blobs....More

I chose Manuel’s Great Hills almost weekly for their wonderful ceviche-both Juan’s & Classic. No trip would be complete without a few good Margaritas🍸 Wait staff are both attentive & professional.

This is a place we’ve frequented, as it’s (to my knowledge) the only place in the city you can get “interior Mexican” food, as opposed to Tex-Mex. The parking here is always ample, the interior always clean, and the staff always friendly. Making reservations on...More
