If you are in the mood for excellent food and great service, this is the place. I had the benedict. I want to say it was the best ive had. Service is great, location awesome but the food and service made the experience memorable.

I used to love this place. At least twice a month we would drive from Claremont to Kloof street for that amazing view from Manna. As the years have moved along things seem to have changed. My standard breakfast of poached eggs with pesto and...sourdough bread seemed to be getting smaller if that even makes sense. Perhaps they just simply started using larger plates ......After months of not being able to eat out my husband and I decided to have our first level 2 lockdown breakfast. I usually order the same breakfast religiously, the Parma style breakfast which comes with ham. I follow a vegetarian diet and asked them to replace the ham usually with mushrooms. For years they have done this but on this occasion I simply asked for the breakfast minus ham not asking for the ham to be replaced by mushrooms. Much to my surprise the bill came at full price.I asked the manager if they would be charging for something that I have not consumed and she irritatingly replied that this is the price. Perhaps I have been spoiled over the years by having my ham replaced with either avo or mushrooms and just expected the same great service. Perhaps the manager was just in a bad mood. This could of been handled so much better and fortunately for us Cape Town has so much great cafes with great views. We will be moving on .More

I had the pleasure of living directly across the street from this restaurant for the month of August (2019). I have tested it out at all times of day and never had a bad meal! My absolute favorite dish was chicken and waffle which was...made in a way I had never tried before (with cole slaw) and I absolutely loved it! For dinner I often enjoyed the fish and chips and great wine selection. On top of that, you would be hard pressed to find a kinder owner and staff!More

This was our first night in Cape Town and we didn't know what to expect but were very pleasantly surprised by Manna Epicure, recommend by our hotel. The mussels were delicious and the portions just right . Extremely good value for money.

The poached free range eggs are made to perfection! The avo’s are creamy, the toast fresh and crunchy. The coffee and the coconut bread 10/10!

Always feel sorry to write a bad review, but our visit was really disapointing. Service was nice and fast, interior is nice- BUT the food was probably the most average food I've eaten in our whole SA trip. And on top of tzhat overpriced for...what you get! Maybe the cook had a bad day, but my vegetarian dish was with no spices at all, mostly fat everywhere and tasted like nothing. Same for my partners dish. We left most of it on the table. Unfortunatelly no one askes if we didn't like it, I would have said someting on spot.More

Dear ShutUpAndDance, I always feel terrible reading reviews like this because I can't fix it. I don't know when you came, whether you have a vegetarian option from our lunch menu or dinner menu, I cannot do any investigation on who was in the kitchen,...More

Arrived at a busy time on a Sunday evening and got the last table. Slightly slow service for this solo traveller (restaurants should remember that if you’re not conversing you should be eating!) but the food was well presented and nicely cooked. The napery is...of quality and the service is friendly and professional. Even better, they don’t constantly harass you with “Are you enjoying your food?”!More

Wife and I returned to this restaurant that we had last eaten at 5 years ago. Still very good. We had Caesar salads which you can mix and match your ingredients. Chicken was tasteless, but poached egg option was great. Service was impeccable. We will...visit again before the next 5 years.More
