Ate at Mano's twice during a recent business trip. The seafood was fresh, deliciously prepared, and the portions were substantial. With the U.S. dollar to Rand conversion, my meal with a couple glasses of excellent South African wine came to about $20. The only drawback was that Mano's credit card system could not get authorization of my company credit card.... More

I've been here previously and the most recent trip did not disappoint either. The hostess was so friendly and gracious. For starters we shared the calamari and the trout salad. The trout salad was a winner! Best salad I've had in ages! I had salmon penne for main. Wow! A friend recommended it, I was skeptical and it was amazing!... More

Lovely spot - with wonderful food. The servings are large, and sharing is definitely a good idea! We also shared a Brownie Mess dessert - that was to die for!!

Ever since opening so many years ago, Manor's has always been the gold standard for consistently excellent food and service - whilst never becoming stale or ordinary - or boring. An enviable reputation, earned and retained through the ever personal presence of Mano.

Had a wonderful dinner at Manos last night. The food was excellent - We had the fillet Bernaise and whole baby chicken with sides of steamed spinach and deliciously crispy baked potatoes. The service was good and friendly and although the menu is small there are always a handful of specials. Definitely a restaurant I would recommend.

I visited Mano's in Sea Point with my wife and daughter yesterday for lunch. The Baked Potato with Trout and Avo looked so good that I cheated on my Banting. Excellent choice and the ladies Calamari looked great as well.

A place with a more than decent list of South African wines. The food was excellent and the filet I had was one of the best I have ever had. Anywhere in the world!
