Service, food, atmosphere - everything was perfect.
Food was simple, not too complicated, but really good. We had steak tartare & fish of the day for main. Both dishes were perfect!. Steak tartare was prepared in front of us, so we can choose what we would like inside it.
Service was quick & friendly

I can highly recommend the place!

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 the service is great.
I had the fish and chips which was amazing and just the way I like it.
Would go back there any day!

At the recommendation of staff at our (nearby) hotel, my wife and I ate dinner at Manna Epicure in November 2017.

The setting is nice -- modern, cool vibe.
The service was good, if a little snarky when we didn't order the more expensive things on the menu (sorry, really -- I just didn't feel like another steak that night...).
The food was good, if not great, but artfully presented.

My only caution is with pretension. The wine bottle is carefully placed out of the customer's reach, so that the attentive wait staff can bear that burden. Except that they don't. (Our wine was offered to a different table, and we had to finally just walk over and get the bottle off the mantel so that we could refill our glasses.)

We ordered the beef steak tartar as appetizer. it has been prepared in front of us with the full range of options (spices, onions, capers, egg yolk, tabasco). The raw meat has been chopped in the perfect size and final preparation was absolutely perfect.

Beside this we also had the beef fillet and the fried calamari. Both very tasty and served by a very attentive staff.

This is a lovely restaurant with really good food. Be sure to flip over the menu to see the salad starters, which are listed separately. The restaurant has a cool look, with a tremendous natural wood chandelier, and a clean vibe. They just need to scrub the cream menus to match it.
