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

Very good food and excellent service from the waitress! However it pays to be local as they manageress/boss just lets them jump the queue! Great place if you don't mine the odd cockroach scurrying across the floor!

After hearing people rave about the place for years we decided to give it a try. In summary, Good food, good prices but awful service. The peri peri chicken livers were very good but quite mild and the Mozambique Prawn Curry was outstanding. That was the good news. The person having the steak had to send it back because it... More

We went in high season - and expected to wait. However management were arrogant, unhelpful and unwelcoming. Have recommended this restaurant to many family and friends in the past, but will not be back. Food was very average after the long wait.

As we did not have a reservation we had to wait about 40 minutes before we were seated inside (too much wind outside on the terrace), but once we had ordered and received our food it turned out it was worth waiting four. The prawn curry was delicious and also the salmon salad was quite fresh and wholesome. The wine... More

Ate at Mano's twice during a recent business trip. The seafood was fresh, deliciously prepared, and the portions were substantial. With the U.S. dollar to Rand conversion, my meal with a couple glasses of excellent South African wine came to about $20. The only drawback was that Mano's credit card system could not get authorization of my company credit card.... More
