We love Mano's and, over quite a number of visits, have never been disappointed with the service or food. The menu offers simple variety (there is definitely something for everyone), the food is always outstanding and the staff are capable and efficient. The 2 steak options, the calamari and the prawn curry are a few of our favourites. Great and... More

We arrived there and were immediately shown to a choice of tables.....early ish as the restaurant does not take reservations so if you dont get there and get a table , tough! A comfortable size place , that fills up quite quickly , but since there were only 2 of us we were promptly accomodated. My cousin ordered house red... More

This is a time-proven restaurant where the owners have vast experience in multiple cities. A clean, neat well run establishment staffed by enthusiastic staff who provide service with a smile. Cuisine highly edible. Fresh, clean white tablecloths. We go there often for early dinner and always leave happy with our choices. Safe parking nearby. Recommended.

Warm welcome, good vibes and most of all wholesome cooking with a well thought out menu make for a lovely meal and outing! Excellent attentive lady served us our food with enthusiasm and vigour. Great gesture Mano's let us bring our own wine with zero corkage on first bottle and 45 rand for the second. Fair! We'll certainly be back.

Good place to eat with excellent range of dishes, ideal for us as our hotel was up the road so very easy to walk to. You have to wait for a table at dinner times as you cannot phone in advance to book a table. So a drink at the bar is ok whilst you wait. Staff very attentive and... More

This humble little place is the best in the area in terms of service, atmosphere, and feeling at home. The owner runs a tight ship, and treated us like family from the minute we put our names on the list to wait for a table. Booking is definitely advised in season. The menu is simple, but the food is outstanding.... More
