Description: Manuel's Italian and Mediterranean Restaurant and Bar is the result of a life long passion for food and the places in which it is served.The food served at Manuel's is based on the traditional Italian and Mediterranean cuisine. Our philosophy on cooking is simple - based on quality and seasonality of produce with minimum fuss. Our décor is sunny Mediterranean, our welcome is warm and relaxed, and our menu offers you well loved dishes with a twist. We're the treat you'll want to give yourself every day.

Absolutely dazzling dinner and wonderful service. Once you're inside it feels like you're sitting in Italy, not a rainy London street. Highly recommend the aubergine pasta. We're very lucky to have this place on our doorstep. Everyone in Gipsy Hill/Dulwich/Crystal Palace/Norwood should treasure it.

Twice we visited over the Christmas period. The food was good, the hospitality was brilliant & to make things even better was the Elvis impersonator, who was a blast. Well done to all the staff... A four star rating for food, five stars for service & entertainment...

We went on New year's Eve, never been before. The decor and appearance is a bit 80s but the food was really excellent, beautifully cooked, tasty and authentic.
Service was excellent and I'm definitely going back - I suggest you go to if you want to eat a hearty meal with friends or family and enjoy good Italian food

I am a tourist from Singapore and found this quaint little Italian restaurant in a London neighborhood. Superb quality of food and it was clear the chef and the restaurant takes great pride in the authenticity of the food they served. will most definitely visit again if my travels take me back to this part of London. Thanks guys!

Returned to Manuel's for Sunday lunch with family - 9 people in total. Excellent three course meal - highlights were the venison, king prawns, and seafood tagliatelle followed by a wide range of deserts, all individually home made. All well cooked with a nice selection of vegetables. The Sicilian white and red wines were very good too. Service has improved but still allocate at least a couple of hours for three courses. The bill was hand written and we certainly couldn't understand how the total amount was arrived at - probably not helped by people mixing 'specials', a la carte, and set menu dishes - but a very enjoyable meal nevertheless. Why the restaurant was only half full in December remains a mystery?!
