We enjoy the quirky space and seaside views of this place. The service is personal which we like. Dinner is good but sometimes we like just to order a drink and enjoy the location.

This was a real find for us. We had a craving for a fish feed, every other place in New Plymouth seemed booked out and chaotic. We lucked upon Manou's by sheer chance. I wasn't sure it was even open, but we were welcomed in...More
