As usual, Manning's Tapas were absolutely delicious (especially the crab claws!). The staff are so friendly and helpful and the restaurant has such a relaxed atmosphere. I cannot recommend Manning's highly enough.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere followed by delicious food which is brought to your table as soon as it's cooked, good wine and including great service!

Visited with my husband for brunch. We both had eggs benedict and coffee. Everything tasted very nice, but this place has become very expensive. €10.50 for an eggs benedict is ridiculous! Owners look to be aiming to make a quick buck. They don't appear to...More

I have always loved Mannings but last year I felt it was starting to lose its charm and I'm sorry to say my first visit this year has confirmed it. Yes it is beautiful food and locally sourced which is the main reason I always...More
