The deal looks good, but like the saying goes "if its too good to be true, it is." I would rate the food as equal to or worse than school cafeteria food. Workers were nice and cannot fault them for Dolphin Discovery skimping on quality...More

Great place to eat for view and buffet service but the food is just average. The waiters are outstanding and you will never be looking for someone to bring the next drink or plate. Good Job!!

Manatis is our favourite place to spend the afternoon relaxing. The service is exceptional from all the staff especially Rene, Sefferino, Janet, Clemente, and Diego. The food is always fresh and the cervezas ice cold. Thank you for the awesome service. We love going there.

Went here for the lunch buffet (11a-4p) Deigo, Janet and Julio were wonderful. The drinks were included and we enjoyed the variety. I will most definitely return. The location is great, smoking area and non smoking. Clean, well stocked and fresh food.

Have been here many times and reviewed before but it's over 16 months since last time and nothing changes. Still a great place for lunch. We had a couple of beers and a huge plate of nachos with chicken to share and were so full...More
