The restaurant offers traditional menu with some nice steaks. We had a chateaubriand which was good and classic. Baked oysters were good as well

Great atmosphere. Great food. Great service. My son and I dined here on the recommendation of our hotel and we're glad we did. The food portions were good as was the quality. Decent wine list. I would go back.

Our first dinner in Cape Town was at Manna Epicure, and we had a wonderful meal! All the dishes were delicious with high quality ingredients. Our party had a range of entrees and everyone was happy and satisfied with their meal. Staff were attentive and patient with our drawn out dinner. The best part was their bread pudding dessert! We...

Was so looking forward to eating here as we saw the reviews and the menu looked great! The ambience and design is romantic and really lovely. My fresh tomato soup was delicious but sadly my steak was over cooked as was my husbands and it was not as tasty as we have had elsewhere. The server realised my steak was... More

This was one of my favourite restaurants in Cape Town. I always look forward to going there. They have obviously changed management or the chef or both. I ordered a sirloin(used to be the best sirloin I have ever had) it was cold and it was tough and in general shocking. My partner ordered a fillet medium well she had... More

The Manna Epicure was booked by our hotel for our fist night in Cape Town, an excellent start to our holiday. The location is not the most scenic you will find but the ambience and service more than make up for this. We shared a baked camembert to start, which came with some tasty bread and sweet figs, followed by... More

Have eaten here often and it's always special. Had an omelette for breakfast this morning and it really was very average and below usual standard.

Dear Jjrs. I am glad to read you have eaten often at manna and always thought it was special, I wish you had sent your omelette back as you know better about the consistent quality you've always had at manna. It is a shame you had to have an average experience to write a review. Chef Mary has been working... More

My go-to place in Cape Town. During a week long visit I went there twice, first for breakfast (very good, but their version of "Eggs Benedict" was a surprise -- it came on a croissant) and then for an excellent, light dinner. Still a great place to go to.

Dear ChrBrd, Thank you for your review, unfortunately you are going to have to come back a third time before going back to Netherland so we can work even harder and earn our 5th star! If it's not perfect, it's not good enough! I want manna epicure to be your 67th excellent review... lol All jokes aside, I am glad... More

Again recommended by our hotel, Abbey Manor. Best steak I have had in years! Excellent service by a waiter wearing shorts with odd coloured socks! Be sure to book well in advance
