Cafe Mandacaru is a wine bar that offers vegetarian food, but here you won't find typical vegeterian cuisine. Our chef makes a fusion of traditional recipes and styles that delivers a selection of excellent quality dishes. Cafe Mandacaru offers much more than a fine cuisine. You can enjoy live music and literary performances with a glass from our excellent wine selection.
