Great for dinner and breakfast

Flounder on the menu, so I was hooked, but the fish was a bit on the small side, but very tasty, and just as described on the menu. The waitress, possibly from Russia, was very good and efficient.

The two of us went here for dinner in the evening having already snacked lightly throughout the day and ended up eating way too much, we found the food was very good. I had Oysters Kilpatrick followed by the eye fillet steak which was cooked exactly as requested. In hindsight, I really didn't need the Oysters but they were great!... More

Dined at Manuka for lunch today and just had to review this restaurant. From the outside it looks ordinary and you could say the decor is basic There was an extension menu located outside so we could view before entering. When we entered the staff we were quickly seated and water and the menus bought to the table. Within 5... More

Manuka Cafe is a local gem! There are lots of local dishes to try on their menu. It was so hard just choosing one main dish! We loved the Green Lipped Mussels, the fresh salmon & flounder and the Greek Lamb Burger. Make sure to check the specials board as well. Devonport is only a cheap 10 min ferry ride... More

Was highly recommended by a local who owned a shop on the wharf. The Brewster made 2 special mochas the best in NZ. A bit pricy but worth the price

We have dined here before. This time was the same as previously - a nice dining experience (dinner), in a perfect location (Devonport is a favourite of ours). The service was good - some younger staff so you don't get the top level service experience, but a good, relaxed one suited fine.
