“Stuffed!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

Wow, food is delicious and resonable for stellenbosch, awesome vibe however to loud for some dutch tourists who walked out, they seriously MISSED OUT!! Everything we tried was really good from the most amazing haloumi,best Baba ganouche but the Lamb Mishwe was my favorite, service let me down a little but i still tipped 10% but the waiter wouldve gotten more if he was more attentive! But the whole vibe was a positive one really friendly staff and hands on chefs!

“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Manouche's vibe is relaxed and you can have a bite while enjoying the Lebanese music in the background. It's perfect for a family lunch as well as a date. The food is DELICIOUS and you get value for your money. The big portions are wonderful. Really something to check out.

“Great vibe and mouthwatering food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Delicious authentic Lebanese food served up in huge portions. The chef is a great character with lots of plate banging and theatrical gestures. A small restaurant packed with a diverse crowd from students to family groups. Great atmosphere with loud Lebanese music as a backdrop.

“Lebanese vibe in the historical Stellenbosch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

This is certainly a unique place where you can breathe and experience mediterranean vibrations: great Mediterranean food, great South African wine and great Lebanese music. At the end of the meal you can also smoke hubblies chatting with friends or just to relax before going back home. The plus here is Jean, a wonderful Chef and "showman". Suggested especially for dinner. A must!
