  • About Manchego

    Elegantia Introduction

    Manchego is a Spanish Tapas restaurant in Santa Monica that focuses on delicious small plates and a cozy atmosphere. We recently relocated a few doors down, to a larger space with a patio in the back.

  • Our Menu

    Elegantia Food

    Our re-vamped menu features Spanish cheese and meat with plenty of vegetarian options, and a bit of Mediterranean influence. Please note that our menu changes seasonally.              

  • Special Events

    Elegantia Events

    MANCHEGO hosts a pre-fixe Valentine's Day and New Year's dinner every year. We also accommodate parties of approximately 30 people in the patio.                                          


I adore this place! The ambiance is charming & cozy. The staff is extremely friendly and the menu is perfect. It's a perfect spot to have a glass of wine and tapas after work or rally a fun group on a friday night. The back patio lit with candles provides the ideal romantic setting!
