La Mancha Ratings and Reviews

This was our 2nd time this year to have dinner at La Mancha. We have enjoyed the authentic Portuguese food each time, especially the Tapas. One favorite of ours is a shrimp dish served inside a fresh pineapple with a delicious curry/coconut sauce. The Sangria is very good, along with a Portuguese white wine called Vino Verde. We felt that the main entrees were quite expensive, so we did not order any of them. We did like the special appetizer of lamb meatballs, which we ordered with a side of rice. We experienced a couple glitches with pricing, such as over charging for wine & being served fewer meatballs than promised. The server was very apologetic however!

Food was good. Service was so-so as it was Valentines Day and they seemed rather overwhelmed. Entrees arrived before salads and we had to ask again for our wine. But, the waiter was gracious enough to comp the wine.

We were on time but there was already a backlog of people waiting. After about 15 minutes they led us to outside seating and we declined. There were unbussed tables everywhere and no one working to clear them. Eventually were seated at a table for 6, we were two. We waited a long time for menus and water, but did eventually get a nice bottle of wine. Finally did get to order. Some tables had candles, we didn't and had to ask twice. I would say there are management/training issues here. Another table asked for water, the person came out, filled their glasses, then went straight back even though we and and another table were empty. No eye contact, forget a smile. Decor is a weird mix of styles, cheap art work. Often there were no servers or attendants, no one, for 10-15 minutes at a time in our area, which was crowded; not sure where everyone was. Our food was excellent, but almost room temperature, and we had to beg for a steak knife-- good tender steak but not tender enough for our butter knife. We may try them again, but there are so many good places....

3 couples, comprised of brothers and their spouses, chose to eat here based on local.reviews. Very glad we did. Our server Deryk was outstanding. The food was delicious and the venue provided us a comfortable space to chat and catch up and laugh the evening g away.

we love this restaurant. Food is prepared with lots of care and kitchen is always ready to accommodate any special requests. Wait staff always there for you and personable. We love the food , try the fried calamari, any paella, meat or fish skewers. The tapas are very appealing and fun to have . Atmosphere is relaxed but accommodates to special occasions.

Service was outstanding. In fact our server was basically a "one man band" doing pretty much everything yet was able to be very attentive. The food was ok. A bit much sauce on the grouper for my liking. The other diner had the lobster ravioli and felt the same-just ok. Portions were very generous though. Not a fan of the ambiance at all. I prefer a cozier setting. Although they had tables in the window nooks the dining room was cavernous. With the choices of restaurants that we have I think it would be a while before we tried this again.

This is a nice Spanish restaurant. The music being played sounded as if it had come from the soundtrack of Narcos, so I thought it gave the restaurant it's like Colombian flavor. I particularly enjoyed the fillet with blue cheese sauce. I substituted vegetables for the rice side, and ordered extra sauce, and it was simply delightful. I dined here two times in the span of a few days and had the same dish. The first night, although I had ordered the fillet medium, the fillet was slightly overcooked. The second night that I dined there I requested the cook pay special attention to the temperature of the steak, and it was absolutely perfect. I would not hesitate to return to this restaurant.

The place was okay. Not very warm ambiance. We were put in a back room. The owner did check on some tables but not ours. Waiter was excellent but ultimately he could not overcome the mistakes made by the kitchen on his behalf. A Ceasar salad should not be made with blue cheese. A rib eye that we are told will have blue cheese sauce on the side should be on the side.

The food was phenomenal. Great flavors, but not overwhelming.Service was excellent, great atmosphere, did not feel rushed at all. Wife and I both decided that this would be our go to place for special evenings from now on. Wonderful place for a nice relaxed evening.

A wonderful find on our stopover on Amelia Island. My husband's lamb was perfectly cooked and the generous portion, with lots of fresh vegetables was a hit with him. As a vegan, I was happy to find a vegetable piallia on their web site ... although it's no longer on their printed menu the chef was happy to prepare it ... saffron rice with fresh local vegetables, hearts of palm, artichoke, olives and all meals served with wonderful bread and an olive oil, balsamic vinegar dip. An enchanted evening with good wine to boot! Will surely return on our next trip through the area.

Family and I came down to this part of town for labor day vacation. I saw some good reviews about La Mancha and wanted to have a little "fancy" dinner with my family. We were seated off to the side in a sort of separate room which was really nice so we had no problem chatting. We also ordered a pitcher of sangria which was absolutely delicious! The food was spot on perfect. Honestly, the best food we had was there while we were on vacation. When we visit Amelia Island again La Mancha is on the list of places to go eat.

This restaurant was average. It wasn't what I expected after reading the reviews, which led me to believe the restaurant would provide a lively atmosphere to enjoy with a group of colleagues. The karaoke and (adorable) young chap singing "This land is your land" didn't deliver what I hoped it would.

Our family of 9 visited Amelia Island last week for our annual visit and we thought we would try a new restaurant. Don't bother - it was over priced and the food was not representative of Spanish/Mediterranean cuisine. Our entrees were greasy and cold while the kitchen listened to hard-core rap just feet away. Upon leaving the restaurant, we were greeted by a local car enthusiast set up in the parking lot. His modified vehicle sporting a minimum of 10 speakers and big screen TV was performing a light & sound show. The kids loved it but definitely not the high-end restaurant it was portrayed to be.
