If you are looking for an amazing dinner for a couple, that’s the place! Perfect view, delicious food, very good service...

This is my second time dining here, and I have to say I won’t be making that mistake a 3rd time. It seems that the kitchen cannot get the seasoning right—either over seasoning or under seasoning (my dish was completely without salt & my wife’s...was so salty that it was almost inedible. Maybe if I mixed them together, they would’ve been palatable). While at first blush the ambience and décor are appealing, it hardly rises to the level of “art” (more like “arts & crafts”). The dining area is poorly lit; several patrons needed to use cell phone flashlights to read the menu. The price for the quality of the food is exorbitant. The service here is excellent. Wait staff are attentive, helpful and available, but this is not reason enough to dine here. Overall, this restaurant is overpriced and pretentious and I cannot recommend dining here.More

I went to Manary on a friday night by myself and I had a blast! Service was excellent, all the waiters were very nice and attentive, and the restaurant is outdoors with a delightful atmosphere. Also, the food is amazing!! I had the fish with...kale leaf and mango desert which is a must! Absolutely love it and hope to come back someday. Thank you for the experienceMore

We were a group, and it is always slower to get good service for a group. But this was excruciatingly slow. And with errors. But if the food were great we could have suffered the long waits. But unfortunately the food was not good either....My main dish, of shrimps, was covered with sweet pineapple sauce that took a away the last bit of shrimp taste which was limited to begin with. Frozen shrimps re-cooked? I do not know. Maybe farmed shrimps that no chance the acquire their characteristic flavors. At any rate, a disappointing experience that was not made brighter by the lackluster desert of so-so chocolate with so-so vanilla ice cream. Not recommended.More

Quiet place, see sight, great food. On Mondays and Tuesdays there is live music. Recommended! Should the "Velha Paçoca" dish for two.

My husband and I came to the Manary for dinner. One of the best vegan meals I’ve ever eaten, a 3 course vegan healthy meal and vegan cocktails. Thank you, as it’s certainly difficult here in Brazil eating out, moreso eating whole foods and quality....Simply the best night for us both.More

Absolutely number one of all the restaurants I've been to in Natal. Beautiful place, good live music and exquisite meal feeling the soft breeze of the sea. What else can anyone ask for?

This is an excellent restaurant!! It offers an amazing atmosphere with a lovely garden that surrounds a swimming pool. On top of that you have amazing views over Ponta Negra beach and the ocean. The food was simply fantastic and I highly recommend eating here.

Small and charming restaurant inside a seaside hotel, with great food, decoration, and service. We ordered the Baião de Todos (risotto seafood) and and local meat dish. Presentation Washington flawless. Do try the crab salad “Casquinha de Carangueijo”, just delicious.
