We had the daily menu for lunch but I can't wait to come back here and try the changing special menus for dinner. The host was happy to translate the menu for us into English and give recommendations of the local cuisine. Great value, fresh food and relaxed atmosphere.

Had a delicious leisurely lunch here last week during my trip to La Rapita. The restaurant was delightful and the owner, Angels, is a fantastic host. I highly recommend the octopus and the chocolate mousse - delicious! Well worth a visit.

Braseria Manu is the best restaurant ever. The food is awesome and the service incredible. The owner speaks a really good English so it was so easy for us to understand what was in the menu. If you go to Sant Carles de la Rapita don't go without eating there!!

On arriving we were informed that the chef had the night off as she was tired. We were shown to our table at the back of the restaurant - wine menu presented and after a funny translation session we had a gorgeous bottle white and Hubbie had a beer. Not long after Angel the owner turned up - very bubbly... More

A lovely place to go. Great food and nice tapas with a drink. There is a traditional feel to it. A covered seating area outside, albeit on roadside. The main meals from the menu were very good and well presented.

I love this place. I have been twice now. First, I went for my birthday lunch and the lunchtime menu is a bargain and delicious. Really good quality local food. So much so that local workers were arriving in work vans to come here specially so this is clearly a preferred place for locals to come for lunch. We sat... More

We have been here several times this year and each time come away very satisfied. The food is freshly cooked to order and the house wines are very good and cheap. All the staff are friendly and the place very clean.

Would like to thank Angels and Anna for opening up the kitchen yesterday and serving some really delicious Tapas alongside a warm and hospitable welcome. We tried some smoked eels on crostini, garlic mussels, gambas croquettes and deep fried octopus and served with a lovely Rioja. Excellent value and we look forward to returning on our next trip back to... More

I stayed in La Rapita and I had one of the best lunch in Catalonia! Xipirons (squids), mussels, delicious original paella and wine for just 12.50 euro!! Excellent service and free wifi!
