Such terrible service and extremely long wait for everything. It took 20+ minutes just to bring out our drinks and it was a set menu so only one option of bottomless champagne (which was also served in wine glasses instead of flutes). Our reservation was at 11 and we didn’t get out of there until after 1400. If there were problems going on in the kitchen or with staffing our waitress could have just given a heads up so we could relax a little instead of wondering if we were forgotten. Won’t be back and it’s a shame because the food was good but the service was terrible.

Not sure why but the chef went crazy with spice. Mediterranean Chicken was off the scale with curry like spice. Chimmichurri steak was poor quality and chimmichurri was spicy hot (so bad it was difficult to eat). The restaurant did have great service and a good wine list, but I would end it there.

WE took friends with us for our second visit. My order of pork chop was disappointing as it was just cut up pieces, dry and not the juicy chop as menu states. Drinks were not as good, different bartender? We like this nice place and will go back, as we want to give it more chances.

We've visited Cabana Del Sol at least a half dozen times. Always great food, good drinks, and friendly service. The pizzas are good, but we really come for the tapas. Our favorites:
Coconut Shrimp - sweet, crunchy, and served with a sweet chili sauce.
Albondigas - beef meatballs in a savory sauce with a hint of what might be cinnamon.
Beef Sliders, Tacos, and the mountainous Picadillo Nachos.
This is a great local restaurant with a separate bar area and a menu that is unique for our town. Give it a try; you'll be glad you did!

The wait staff seems to turn over quite a bit. Our wait person did not seem to know much about the food. We did not get our soft drinks refilled and had to ask to get refills. The water, however, was refilled regularly. We have been here a lot since their opening, and either the food or the service seems to be a hit or miss. It may be a while before we go back again.

Food and Menu was quite good with lots of good options, Service was poor, Need to offer either bread or some sort of table food with ice water because its going to be quite a wait for appetizers, entree, even a cocktail. Not to mention my wife and I were only one of 4 couple's in the entire dining area.

The food was very good, the waitresses were constantly checking in on us, which I liked, the food presentation is beautiful, makes you feel like you're eating at a five star restaurant but at the price of a meal at red Robin. I enjoyed my stay and I liked the fact that they had live UFC fights on the TVs so I was very entertained and had a great time. This place is perfect for going on dates or going out to eat on an anniversary or just trying to have a couple drinks with the guys!

The outside facade of the restaurant is much to be desired; however, upon entering, I was pleasantly surprised. The servers were extremely friendly, polite, and very accommodating. The food was delicious, from the tapas to the entrees.

The only downside to our experience was the multiple televisions on the walls. While the restaurant does have a bar area, the dining room, which was very well decorated with modern decor, had televisions mounted on each wall, which was a distraction from the overall dining experience.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Manteca. The service is excellent, restaurant is clean, food is fresh and great, and they always are pleasant. The only frequent issue I have is that the drinks are way too strong and as a result, lack flavor, but it's not a major issue.

Cabana Del Sol is a little gem in an unassuming building in downtown Manteca. We arrived at noon on Saturday for lunch and were warmly greeted and seated at a nice table near the windows. Never being here before I wasn't sure what to expect, but immediately felt very comfortable not only because of the classy interior, but because of the friendly young woman who greeted us and was our server. My friend and I hadn't seen each other in quite a while and were celebrating our birthdays, so we wanted a comfortable, relaxing environment to catch up. We never felt rushed and ended up hanging around for a few hours. The Latin flavored menu is intriguing, we had the Crab Napoleon which is lots of crab meat with avocado served with tortilla chips, Coconut Shrimp that were cooked perfectly (at some places they overcook them), the Papas Bravas, and for dessert we had the Tres Leches Bread Pudding which was more like cake than bread pudding and very light and airy, and the Molten Lava Cake which was chocolatey and divine. We both had their secret recipe Berry Sangria and shared a cocktail that was a concoction of pineapple juice, midori and some other ingredients I don't recall. Don't let the building's facade fool you, this is a very nice restaurant that I highly recommend and plan on driving the hour-and-a-half it takes me to get there to try it again!

We had a delicious dinner at Cabana Del Sol. Location and parking are not positives for the restaurant, but the staff and the food more than make up for it. The prices were reasonable and $5 for a margarita is a steal.
I would recommend some type of window coverings so you do not have to look at Yosemite Ave and Cabral's parking lot.
ADVERTISE MORE. We need good restaurants like this is Manteca

One of the better places in Manteca. Good food is hard to find in the area. I ordered a salad with steak. The steak was very good, however the salad base was a Costco salad ready mix. Would expect more for the write-und the place received.

We stumbled upon Cabana del Sol on a recent visit to California and were quite impressed with what we found. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were about to leave as we were the only ones there, but luckily, the menu was enticing so we decided to stay. The menu was creative and well executed, prices reasonable (we actually arrived just before happy hour began) and the staff was friendly and gave us great recommendations. We loved the margaritas, the chips and salsa, the mussels and a chicken entree dish. It was the best food that we had on our short visit to the area.

I've only had a couple of their entrees so far, but Cuban garlic chicken is amazing! Served with plantains & saffron rice - so good. A truly delicious chicken dish, very different flavor profile but on par quality- & taste-wise with Mustards Grill's (of Napa) lemon garlic chicken. Other Cabana del Sol's other entrees seem very interesting & I look forward to trying them but it will be hard to break away from that Cuban chicken.
A small, but very good, wine list. However, I feel that wine by the glass prices are too high for the area, especially compared to other area restaurants that serve same or similar wines by the glass. Cocktails & their prices are good.
The place can be quite noisy & parking can be challenging but it has a cool vibe inside. It's also great that they serve dinner until midnight. Late dinners are served in the bar area but the bar is really nice.
