I went here for a day out with my work friends and we all ordered from the set menu. The choices were good and the waiter even let us include some things that were not on there! All dishes were lovely and the wine there was also good. The service was good. However, I felt it was expensive so would... More

We are always greeted with huge smiles and big hugs, couple of glasses of sparkling wine which makes it very special. Food is absolutely fantastic (scallops are my favourite). Staff is lovely and...

We had our first ever family Christmad Day meal out and it was amazing. The food was fabulous and the staff were incredibly professional and fun. The live singer was brilliant and the whole family (10 of us in total) had a truly memorable Christmas Day.

Been a while since we've been here - way too long. Food was top notch. Doesn't feel like a 'local' restaurant, this restaurant has a very upmarket ambience. Thanks Manos, will see you again soon.

We are certainly lacking in great places to eat in this area, but this place is a little gem. I've just had lunch here with 3 lady friends, and it was excellent. Our waiter was so pleasant, which you don't find very often in Loughton or Buckhurst Hill. I loved the food and will take my husband as he's so... More
