    Can’t wait for January…the beach, good friends, the sunsets, the birds AND the key lime pie at Magnolia’s! (Not to mention everything else we’ve tried over the years…)

    Magnolia’s is on my list of favorite restaurants (and not just my favorites in La Manzanilla). What I love: fresh local seafood, fresh ingredients all beautifully prepared. A nice reliance on favorite menu items supplemented with interesting specials… means I don’t always order the same thing. Although I will always order Martini Mashed Potatoes, and I want an early reservation for every Thursday night I’m in town so there are still some oysters left! Cheerful staff and a well run restaurant. And I love that Alex is working with local farmers to source the products that she needs. Looking forward to Magnolia’s new location!

    We went there last night a group of four and it was really bad ,two sreaks over cooked,fish and shrimp have so much salt ,they should understand it,easier to add salt.a bottle of red wine was served at room temperature ,,,,30 degrees. The waiter asked us at least 20 times if everything was ok.baguette bread is horrible.
    This is our last visit to Magnolia,s

      I’m surprised to see this review. I’ve had dozens of delightful meals at Magnolia’s. Not that I speak for Magnolia’s, but I’m sorry your experience was disappointing. Perhaps you should give it another try.
