Respond to Review of El Mana
Review: I visited this restaurant with my partner in June 2012 and I rate is as a fantastic dining experience. We ate quite early (7:30pm) finding the restaurant empty when we arrived. The restaurant is in the old town in a narrow street running parallel with the seafront. The decor is simple with wooden tables and a seaside theme. We choose four starter dishes to share instead of mains and had glasses of the red house wine which was delicious. The dishes were pumpkin soup (spicy and served with a flower), spinach and cheese vegetable croquettes with sauce (a local Canarian dish), a stack with smoked tofu, aubergine and other vegetables (skewered with rosemary), and sautéed cheese in spiky shapes with salad. Every dish was tasty, with a range of textures and flavours and a quality above and beyond the rather bland offerings of other veggie restaurants. Presentation was attractive, each dish looked lovely. The waitress was friendly. When I asked the woman working in the kitchen who created such lovely dishes, it turned out that she was the chef and the recipes were her own. This woman deserves a Michelin star!
