Very nice restaurant not far from the Waterfront area. Great varied menu with traditional SA fare as well as more standard options. Reasonably priced, service was good, and food nicely presented.

We had a really good dinner at Mano’s. Typical sort of Greek fare with some interesting dishes. Good service and a nice vibe. Perhaps some of the dishes were a little inconsistent and not quite all 5/5; but we’d certainly go again.

This is my favourite go-to restaurant in CT. Try the Shellfish should it be on offer, it is better than any other in Cape Town. Fresh beautiful salads, grilled baby chicken is sooo tasty and one of the only restaurants in CT that serve the...Bubbly and Beer truly chilled. Love this placeMore

This is a very popular local restaurant. If came highly recommended by our hotel for good reason. The food was excellent, the prices very reasonable and is very popular. We came two nights in a row as the menu is extensive.

My favourite restaurant in Cape Town, we managed to visit twice this trip, we did have to wait a while for a table one time but we were able to sit at the bar and have a drink while we waited. Food is always good...and staff are friendly, wish this restaurant was in my home town.More

Manos is a restaurant in GreenPoint Cape Town, approximately 2kms/1.2 miles from Cape Town City centre. It has been a fixture in GreenPoint for over 25 years. The menu is not extensive, but anyone can find something on it they will really like. They do...not take bookings, so get there early as they are usually packed. We went for dinner last night, and although my grilled kingklip was really not up to their usual standard and was a letdown, the other meals were great.More

We had a very good bottle of Cedarberg Sauvignon Blanc and the fried halloumi with fig was very good but unfortunately the chicken in lemon sauce did not have much lemon flavour and I asked for extra lemon wedges to try and rectify the issue....Having said that the chips served with it were very nice. My real bug, and it happens a lot here in S A, is that the servers remove plates etc whilst other diners are still eating. This is such bad practice and gives the remaining diners the feeling they are too slow and this is not necessary especially when the restaurant is quiet. Due to this we decided to leave. A shame as you got the feeling you were an intrusion. Would we go back, possibly buy not a first choice.More

We attended a party at Mano’s. The entire restaurant was taken. Great atmosphere, slick service overseen by the wonderful Mano himself. The food was top quality stuff and beautifully cooked. The room is a bit dull though. There’s a nice terrace outside to watch the...world pass by. I really liked it. I didn’t pay, but the menu shows it to be good value - and away from the tourist trail.More

We enjoyed this so much we came a 2nd time on our 9 day holiday. Very warm atmosphere, was busy both times we were there, the waitresses just didn't stop. As tourists we got the impression it was a real local neighbourhood restaurant. We will...definitely come back when we visit Cape Town again.More

Mano's is nestled right at the beginning of Green Point. It seems like it is a local haunt of many capetonians, as people entered as if they had been coming for years. The decor looks like it is busy being updated so I will have...to see what they do. What I can say is that the food is incredible! Everyone must try the halloumi and fig, as well as the beef medallions. Pure food heaven! A great place, with great service!More

They do not take evening reservations but we were luckily enough to get a table. Loved the food and the service was excellent. Restaurant manager keeps a close eye on all tables without being obtrusive. I had the grilled calamari which was soft, tender and...very delicious.More
