The sound of bustling conversation warmly greets you when stepping into Las Mañas, while the notes of live music and scents of delicious food overcome you. Set in the city of Antwerp, this family restaurant has been honouring true Spanish cuisine for three generations. Tapeo mixto; Corona de Cordero; Gambas a la mama; Las Mañas’ menu is an (affordable) book of authentic Spanish dishes. Helmed by Rayco Espantoso and his father and brother, the restaurant uses recipes dating back to 40 years ago – made by Rayco’s grandmother. “She was the one who started Las Mañas over 40 years ago,” Rayco enthuses. “Although we constantly improve our dishes, we still make our food according to bomma’s recipes.”
