My family and I had lunch at this restaurant on Auckland Day. Other restaurants in the vicinity were virtually empty whilst this one was buzzing with life. Extensive variety of food on the menu suitable for every kind of preference. Our group of five chose pizza, shallots, calamari, lamb shank and lamb tenderloins - all beautifully prepared and tasty.

Hungry after tour of town, walked in because it looked OK. Understatement of the year!! Great selections ranging from simple snacks to full meals; full bar. Delicious food, friendly service, reasonable prices. Close to the Ferry which brings you to the area. what's not to like??

Lovely food and fantastic staff . Nothing was too much trouble even though we turned up for dinner at 9pm on the first night in Devonport. Had a lovely dinner at another restaurant the next night but ended up back at Manuka for a coffee & cake.

Our service person was full of smiles and very friendly. Drinks arrived promptly. Food came after a suitable time. I ordered the steak and it was excellent. cheese platter to follow and that...

I rarely write reviews but from what I see some of the bad reviews here dont do justice to the restaurant hence I decided to speak up. I had a wonderful experience the last time I came here. The food was excellent and very well prepared. The service was attentive and the staffs were very friendly. Definitely worth coming back.... More

I traved to aukland a few weeks ago and having a chance to try the food of Newzealand in the restaurant. It is amazing to taste the wood fire pizza as well as fried lamb. I think it is one of the most delicious meals of all time for me. The weather is wonderful for tourist also.

I discovered Manuka's last year on a prolonged stay in New Zealand. Finding myself again in Auckland I had no hesitation in taking the ferry to the lovely Davenport and again ate here. Although quieter, I'd been on a busy Saturday before, the atmosphere is still good and the staff had more time to be chatty. I ordered a Pizza... More

I reluctantly came here again, with a friend, who wanted to sit outside. It was a nice day, people watching and chatting seemed a good idea. Never again, service was non existent, and when we finally received our food ( drinks still hadn't arrived, despite requests ) the Pasta was stodgy and over cooked, and the Chowder had a distinctly...
