Bar and Restaurant Guide

Manilva is a great place to eat out with dozens of bars and restaurants serving a range of dishes from the best of local produce to a variety of international cuisines. There are also bars and cafes to suit all tastes where you can sit out at one of the street cafes and watch the world go by whilst enjoying the unbeatable Spanish coffee or take in the latest big match on a big screen tv with a pint, sup a fine Rioja in one of the Spanish bars, or listen to some of the best live music on the coast, then Manilva has the bar for you.

With some of the establishments listed here there is a fine line between bar and restaurant with many of them serving extremely good food.

Most of the bars and restaurants are centred in Duquesa Port and in the villages of Sabinillas and Castillo de la Duquesa, with others in Manilva Town and dotted around the rest of the area.
