When we arrived we were a little taken back with how noisy it was, due to high ceilings & concrete floors, however menu was plentiful lots of fresh Italian dishes covering all tastes, even our gluten free friend had a choice of dishes! I had the seafood fettuccine dish which was a good size, fresh & at $30 was very good. There is an extensive menu with pizzas & cheaper dishes but none of the girls ordered an entree & didn't feel the need to order a dessert as all our mains were sufficient, overall nice meal, different atmosphere, not byo but extensive wine list & we all left happy & content!

The Manhattan is only relatively new to Mornington, but it seems that Rose (owner) has managed to put together the perfect recipe.
Great food, best coffee in town and the most friendly and helpful staff.
To round it off they have just received their full licence.
It's not hard to see why it carries the No 1 rating on Trip Advisor.
We will definitely be back for more.
Special mention to Elise for making our visit a very pleasant and memorable one.

This is the cutest family owned restaurant which hasn't been open too long. The staff were attentive, warm and friendly and the owner even took the time to come over and make us feel welcome!
When the food came out it was by far the best meal that we have had in a while, so much honest flavour, that definately had love added.
Will certainly be going back!

We decided to give Manhattan a try [used to be the old Bargain Box haberdashery in Mornington]. The place wasn't too busy even though it was Wednesday [Market Day!]. Quite a good range on the menu but I was interested in a focaccia or something like that for lunch. This wasn't on the menu but we did notice as we were paying the bill that there was a menu with a lunch menu on it including bagels [for lunch only!] Why weren't we handed these menus? If you go for lunch, make sure there is a lunch menu included with the other menu.
Unlike other comments, I didn't think the chicken caesar salad was a large portion; mainly just rocket salad leaves and a bit of chicken. They made good money on my $19 meal!
The service was very slow and we had to 'wave' a waitress to our table mostly to get any service. Towards the end the staff seemed more interested in if their car got booked by the council than getting us a coffee. Must say the lemon tart was delicious!
