After a couple of years we have been at Manna Epicure again. The meat was not prepared as ordered but it was immediately corrected. Service was very friendly and professional. Prices are a bit high but still ok.

A jewel on Kloof Street. Caring Service from the waiters to the owner, food you will love and good wines. Great start of an evening or fantastic close of the day.

From the moment we walked in, we got warmly welcomed by a gentleman at the door, Talent. He kept referring to us as "family" and indeed we felt at home here. The food was deliciously well made, the restaurant itself is warm and cozy and...More
