Want good pub fare in a cozy, snug-as-a-bug setting? With a decent beer list and nice-sized glasses of wine? The check out The Manx. This local hangout is always busy, and because of it's tiny size, it sometimes has a lineup. But it's worth the wait. The food may not be gourmet but it's satisfying and the ambiance--low ceilings, small... More

The menu has changed to such fancy things we cfouldn't make heads or tails of it without the waitress and she seemed hassled explaining it. They still have the lamb curry wrap at least :)

Colleagues thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at The Manx. Great food, very fresh and great service. Loved the veggie burger. Will definitely go back!

We have been wanting to visit The Manx since we saw it on You Gotta Eat Here. We live out of town and finally made it to the pub. My expectations were high and the food did not disappoint. We both ordered the pulled pork and it was delicious! The fries were delicious and the side salad plentiful, fresh and... More

Best breakfast mash and just everything potatoes. Also, awesome Ceasars cocktail. The only problem was, I noticed, their staff are far better at night than their Sunday's brunch.

I go to the Manx each and every time I visit Ottawa. And I usually find people I know there, so that's an added bonus. Just a classy place.

I was spending the night at the Gilmour Inn (previously reviewed in September, and just as good this time, but with Christmas decorations everywhere!), and walked over to Elgin to try the Manx, attracted by the thought of craft beer. The pub was perhaps half full when I arrived; my knowledgeable server set me up with the evening's Beau's seasonal... More

I thought the atmosphere was awesome when we first walked in (rustic, board games, etc). We obtained our drinks. The table next to us played music off their phone, and we were dancing along. Server came over and turned it off explaining its "not that type of establishment". When we paid our bills she continued to belittle our table by... More

Food: I ordered the vegetarian tofu tacos. They were disgusting and didn't even come with sour cream, tomatoes, lettuce, etc. The fake taco meat tasted like stuffing (bread) mixed with bland spices. I couldn't finish them because they were gross. Atmosphere: Very tiny and tiny place in a basement. Service: poor. Waitress first took other people's orders at my table... More

Two couples enjoyed an early dinner in a downtown, downstairs pub. Service was excellent. Food was delicious, with a variety of vegetarian dishes, which appealed to meat eaters. The chick pea burger was excellent, and my husband enjoyed the short ribs. We went on a Wednesday evening, and thanks to our 5:30 p.m. arrival, we got the best table in... More
