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

We were really looking forward to have breakfast at this very hyped place. Unfortunately we were not that impressed. The coffe was good and also the orange juice but the rest, I don't know what to say... The waffle was quite bland and the omelette was not up to standard. The service was slow and they missed one of four... More

We had Camembert as a starter - really delicious and recommended. Mussels as a main - but served with huge potato wedges/chips. Weird combination to us. I missed some bruschetta or bread to soak up the juices. The wines are very expensive for average wines.

We had good memories from last year, but something must have happened. The burger was nothing more than ok, the calamaris that were recommended consisted of a greasy pile of fried squids on a wooden plate, a dip on the side and nothing else....oh, I forgot a slice of lemon....this was supposed to be a recommended full dinner course???

Dear MaritandPer, My apologies for such a late reply on your review, after reading it, I had to investigate what could have possibly changed since last year so I asked around about the burger and it is still a firm favourite, homemade rib beef patty with bacon, emmental cheese, topped with onion rings in an artisanal brioche bun, I am...

A lovely lunch spot on busy Kloof Street. Service is friendly and prompt. Breakfast is all day. The coconut bread is almost like eating cake! So good, I came back a second time.
