Always make it a point to visit when near Elizabeth. One of the many gems in town. Food was great. Octopus appetizer is outstanding. Can't go wrong. Wait staff has been there for years and always impresses.

Great Local place. A must go to if you are in Elizabeth area. I have been there for dinner and for parties. We had my daughter's Wedding Rehearsal dinner there and the food was exceptional. Great cocktails.

Manolo's is an Elizabeth staple. It has the finest cuisine from Spain. The high service matches its entrees. Great place for a date, special occasion or family dinner. Worth every penny.
