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...

I normally never write a review, however this time one was needed to show others not to even waste their time in entering this restaurant. The food was over priced and below average to say the least and where do I even begin to explain the customer service! At first sight it seemed like the perfect place to spend your... More

Had a delicious Caesar Salad for lunch. The staff friendly and atmosphere good. Just the place to sit outside and watch the world go by in Devonport.

We had a fantastic lunch at Manuka! I had the baked beans and egg dish, which was delicious! My hubby had the whitebait fritter which he really liked! The service was a bit slow, which was okay since we weren't in a rush. Although allow some time to be served.

We had a birthday brunch here with family - the food was excellent - from the blueberry pancakes, to the Benedicts, to my seared tuna, to every rosti, it was all fresh, well cooked and presented. The coffees were as well, very good - it gets crowded quickly at the lunch hour - so come early. Devonport is a quaint... More

We came over from downtown Aukland for breakfast here, and it did not disappoint. All the food was excellent, the service was friendly, and they had some pretty stellar coffee as well. Worth a trip to Devonport for!

We enjoyed our unique lunch at Manuka. We had vegetarian eggs benedict and a great veggie fritter plate. The looked great and tasted just as good. The wine list was excellent with many New Zealand selections. A little pricey- each lunch was about $16 and a glass of wine ranged from about $9 to $12. Service was friendly and adequate... More

I was here Christmas morning for breakfast as all other restraunt were closed they had good bacon and eggs. I was quite surprised when I saw it was open and quite happy as my belly was rumbling. Enjoyable food and enjoyable atmosphere I recommend it

We were first drawn to this restaurant by the number of locals using it for an early lunch. We returned later when it was not so busy. As I have said, this is not fine dining and the general decor looks tired, but you are immediately given a warm welcome as you enter. From the extensive menu we decided to... More

Very tasty smoked chicken panini with avocado and fresh salad. Great double bacon cheeseburger with tasty sauce and fries. Street table allow us as visitors to take in the people and great weather while still getting friendly. One negative: we had to send back burger as undercooked (no rare for us) but it was quickly replaced with copious "no worries".
