First of all, please understand, this is ALMOST a Michelin star standard restaurant. If you want good sized portions of comfort food this is NOT the place for you. Manu is all about the taste and experience. The flavour combination of a dish and the craft, skill and technical ability involved in creating it. As a result, the portions are... More

As two keen foodies from Melbourne, Australia (the world's most liveable city and centre for culinary excellence in Australia), we couldn't wait to try Manu. We were NOT DISAPPOINTED! The service was superb (from being greeted (multi-lingual), the individualised menu, catering to dietary requirements, the explanations of each dish...) The food was excellent, with a good range of local ingredients,... More

This restaurant should be number 1 in Curitiba on trip advisor. We have been to all the good restaurants during our stay in Curitiba. I gave Poco Tapas 5 stars as we went there and it was great. But that was before we went to Manu. Manu is on a completely different level then Poca Tapas and all the other... More

Top evening! 2 Michelin stars, close to 3! Amazing food. Pocotapas and Barolo are definitely good but are miles behind Manu. Manu is the absolute number 1 kitchen in Curitiba. If you are looking for kilograms with a reasonable price, go to one of the good grill restaurants in this city. If you're looking for mind blowing taste, go to... More

everything, and i mean everything, at this restaurant was considered and included as an essential part of the dining experience. from checking your name at the door and having to be buzzed into the restaurant, to a menu with my name on it, to every course coming on its own unique plating, to the attentive staff, to changing utensils for...

Amazing 18 dish degustation menu with a suitable wine for every dish - really special restaurant with just 10 tables - quite pricey but totally worth and a unique experience with outstanding service. Hint: order coffee at the end. ;-)

I came in on a Tuesday evening for dinner in a desert place. Different than one could expect, the service was excelent and I had "Caldinho de Feijão" and Fish, Rice, Farofa, Banana in Moqueca sauce. It was delicious!!! The soundtrack with brazilian song was another plus! Congrats to the whole staff!

Curitiba is a place of many good restaurants. Manu plays tough in another league. A true signature restaurant, led by locally famous chef Manu Buffara. First, it is not an open doors restaurant. You must book, and each table will be served once per evening. Menu is small and mysterious, just giving hints on what you´ll get. Basicall you choose... More

It tries too much to be fancy, but it is not cool or really sophisticate feel in it. It tries too much to be super haute cuisine, yet my table was most of the time clean. We have chosen the 6 course menu with wine selection to match. Food was brought in small portions, but in loooooong intervals. I believe,... More

Manu serves highly creative delicate, yet complex, food on par with the best restaurants in Paris and New York. This is clearly a Brazilian restaurant, using some vegetables and fruits you cannot find elsewhere. It is a fairly small one-hall restaurant, with modern decor and super-attentive service. I did find the old-style chandeliers out-of-place, though... I chose to let Manu... More
