“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

Monday night birthday dinner. Seemed quiet and laidback. Great service but food was not awesome, still good value as I only ordered a daily special, overcooked pasta with a few seafood pieces.

“Hot Sauce for the Gods”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

Cape Town can be quite an overwhelming place with all the various eateries around the city. What I appreciate about the city is that no two places are the same and most restaurants are boutique without the tainting of franchising.

Mano a Mano is one of those boutique places, nestled just off Kloof Street in Gardens, it was relatively quiet and a little chilly on the day that I visited.

The steak was almost shaped like a fist but it was incredibly succulent and done to perfect. What was in greater was the no-name hot sauce that they brought. That hot sauce needs to become commercial.

The ambiance had hint of trendy bar that the suits crowd on a Thursday and Friday night for after work drinks and dinner.

Awesome place. I will be back.

“Good food and excellent service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

We especially liked the relaxed ambiance and the excellent waiters.
Food was very good ( pizzas were very very good!)
Menu was a bit limited for our taste (we thought)
