“Great food, nice atmosphere, good value.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

We originally went here for lunch when we arrived in Cape Town at the suggestion of the guest house staff where we were staying. The lunch menu was a good selection and was very reasonably priced. We liked it so much that we ate dinner later in the week and actually had several lunches. Out door seating was comfortable and clean and the staff were all great. They make their own chili sauce which was super spicy...but you certainly should try it.

“Great service, nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

The service here was great - very friendly staff who knew their stuff/ knew who to ask if they weren't sure! Felt very welcome.

Restaurant location is great - we sat outside and watched the world go by on a warm Cape Town evening.

The restaurant has a wide selection of good wines and ales. Food was good although nothing outstanding.

“Cape Town City Bowl Star”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

Mano A Mano by the experienced restaurant owner of Mano's in Green Point has provided the very busy Kloof Street, City Bowl environment, home to a great many restaurants and cafes, with a contemporary, calm haven of good food and service, which deserves support. Delicious lamb chops, great fries and salads, good burgers and good wines by the caraffe or bottle combine to make this a great place for a relaxed breakfast, lunch or supper and with its calm environment a suitable place for a business meeting too.

“Relaxed, elegant food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

The type of place you could either go to for a quick bite or go the whole nine yards. As with many Cape Town restaurants the food is based on excellent ingredients simply used to make mouth watering dishes. Along with the food there is a reasonably priced wine list. If the wind isn't blowing too much, eating out on the terrace is a real pleasure.
