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
