Very impressed with food and service

We were visiting the City and decided on a drive to Devonport. We literally stumbled on the Manuka and so happy we did. The staff, food and venue were faultless. We will return.

I have eaten at the Manuka Restaurant in Devonport three times. My first experience was great (pasta dish). My second time was mediocre (same pasta dish). My third time was a disaster ( I ordered a prawn dish, big mistake). The prawn dish was served, for lack of a better word, DIRTY. I like prawns that are de-veined. I asked... More

Friendly staff, good coffee (a full bar), a great menu for breakfast lunch and dinner and plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Best pick is the manuka salmon for dinner

Pleasant and efficient wait staff. Nicely presented meals and good value. The place has pleasant ambience with locals making up much of the clientele. We had pizza, a steak, a pasta choice and a salad over our two evening meal visits. Popular and recommended.

First time visiting Devonport and the weather was not the best, we found this lovely little café and stopped for some lunch and a warming coffee. Food was delicious, service was friendly and quick. Great coffee as well

We got the ferry over from Auckland one evening, and Manuka seemed the most inviting place on the main street. It was busy, but there was a full complement of staff, and we got one of the few tables left. The ambience is bistro-busy. The food was fine - steak and so on, if a little expensive. This was also...

We loved Devonport for its charm and slightly English feel, and it reminded us a little of Manley in Sydney. The restaurant is a couple of mins walk up the main street and we sat at an outside table to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. We started with Oysters Kilpatrick followed by scallops, and fish and chips. The only... More
