We went there on the recommendation of a hotel keeper in the area. Many stairs to get in. Very relaxed place with a kind of European menu. Looked like it might be interesting if someone would come and take an order. Not quite as clean as it could be.

For those of us who grew up in very diverse neighborhoods; PJ's is like being invited to the neighbors house for a home cooked meal. A Polish/German meal. I had not had home cooked Goulash since I was a kid. And the pirogues were not small either. Nor were they only potato filled. The building that houses this restaurant is... More

This little gem looks like a mom and pop simple sandwich kind of restaurant, but the food is special. Everything is made with fresh ingredients with little fancy twists. I went twice in one day I was so impressed by the food and the porch with the view. Would highly recommend to anyone strolling through Manitou Springs!

I recently came to Colorado to visit my sister and she recommended us going to Manitou Springs. We came upon PJ's Bistro as we were looking for a place to eat and decided to try it out. My sister is in a wheelchair so a friend went inside asking about access and they were happy to help out. Very relaxing... More

The only reason this did not get a 5 for overall was because of the wait before being seated and served. However, on this Saturday afternoon it was evident that the place was understaffed as there were only two front-of-house guys doing EVERYTHING. . . .taking names, seating, bartending, serving and bussing. The place is small which only adds to... More

PJs Bistro on the main street in Manitou Springs is a small little restaurant. Quite small. We arrived and the servers were telling us it was about a 30 minute wait, which is fine with us. We were in no hurry. There were only two servers and they were working their butts off!! We were seated and it took a... More

friendly waitress. Very good food. Good size portions. Good location. Went here for lunch as recommended by a local for good french fries since the other place we were considering only serves chips with lunch sandwiches.

We actually visited PJ's three times over a span of a couple summers. First visit: The waiter was asked once to clean off our patio table, which was *really* filthy. After a second request, the waiter was clearly annoyed, and returned to do a half-assed job with a smelly rag, leaving a smelly table. I had to find some paper... More

My wife and I were in Manitou for a wander around the shops and decided to stop for lunch. We'd never even noticed PJ's before, as it's upstairs and not glaringly obvious to the casual passer-by. Anyway, we decided to give it a shot and were very pleasantly surprised. The menu is very unusual, with some definite flair in the... More

The server was Megan. She did a great job especially considering she was the only server. I tried the Hungarian Golash on potato pancake it was tasty with curry sauce. The potato pancake was cooked perfectly crispy.
