Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

this was our first time at the Manillas and it certainly won't be our last. the staff were efficient and friendly, despite being busy .... serving us quickly with our food of sausages in delicious soft, crusty bread rolls. I had a really good coffee...with oat milk served in a generous mug, and my partner had an excellent large hot chocolate ..... so good that he ordered another one when we had cake! the quality of the food was really good at a very reasonable price and the cafe itself was clean and tidy...... as was the toilet (in my opinion always a good indication of a decent well run cafe). we found the owner/manager Philip to be very friendly and he thanked us for our custom before we left.More

After having a lovely family walk with our dog we decided to pop in and have an ice cream. This was our second trip to Manilla’s and the customer service was terribly poor the first time we went, so we thought we would give them...the benefit of the doubt the second time. The man who served us was insistent that we payed for our ice cream before we could even see what we wanted. My mother asked what flavours were available and the man just barked the price again, and more times after that. Also he didn’t list the ice cream flavours for us like in other ice cream places. He just stood there holding the card machine which made us feel very uncomfortable. Eventually when he did lift the cover off, we’d already payed for the ice creams and he immediately assumed that we would have all had cones., mum and myself wanted tubs. Not sure if a tube is the same price as a waffle cone? Whilst he scooped the first tub, my mother who is deaf wanted to use the toilet, there was a barrier to stop you from entering the cafe side which she wasn’t allowed to use which was fine as she went around the outside to reach the cafe toilet inside, the man was going to give us chocolate ice cream for mum, I know she normally has mint chocchip (which they didn’t have) or vanilla. I said I will need to confirm which one she was having as I didn’t know, I tried calling mum over the barrier but she didn’t hear me as she’s deaf. The man rudely told me she wanted chocolate. I did go and find out from mum, it was vanilla. When I got back to the counter and told him vanilla, he replied good job I didn’t give her chocolate then with a sarcastic passive aggressive attitude. The whole experience was very unpleasant. I’m very sorry to have to write this but I hope they can learn from this and maybe rethink their approach to customer service.More

Nice coffee and cake, but the reason for 1 star, The staff were so miserable it was like they had all argued. We had ordered our coffee tea and a cake and when it came at 350 they decided to tell us they shut at...4. They were cleaning the tables and spraying the cleaning products all over the sugar cubes. I couldn’t believe it.More

We had breakfast here more than once while spending time in the area. Service was impeccable, staff polite and obliging and the food was first class! Made to order so the small wait was justified. Wonderful to have a pot of tea and the americano...coffee not only tasted divine; it was in a decent sized cup! Ambience was very welcoming with locals and tourists adding to the mix. Plenty of space inside and out for family groups and if you have your furry friend in tow - there is water outside where you need to sit as they aren’t allowed inside. All in all highly recommended!More

If heaven has a cafe it would be modeled on this one. After being very unwell for a week and have no appetite at all, my hu by and I decided to go to MANILLA. cause I live the food. It was definitely the right...choice. I ordered a jacket potato with a cesar sauce salad, and hubby his usual a rustic roll with cheese. his favourite. when the meals came my jaw dropped the jacket potato was huge and so full of the most amazing roasted veg and absolutely gorgeous tasting ingredientswith the fabulous cesar sauce and crispy onions, you couldn't even see it. it was served with really good tortilla crisps, coleslaw, sun dried Tomatoes, more beautiful tasting roasted veg, beetroot and a very tasty salad in a lovely dressing. I have no idea how the make their food but the flavours are absolutely crazy good. just a little heat here and there and absolute treat to eat. I was moaning with the joy of eating the wonderful food. I failed to eat it all but had a real good go at it. First food I'd eaten in four days. My husband has a huge piece of dark chocolate fudge cake. Oh my goodness he physically melted when he tried that and soon ate every bit of it.The service is second to none. Phillips and Anna came to make sure all was OK. It was more than OK it was absolutely perfect. The whole menu is a delight with so many vegetarian options, but like nothing I've ever tasted before finding this wonderful piece of heaven on earth. I wholeheartedly recommend this place if you love fantastic food. P.s. The café itself is so lovely with a great veiw too. unfortunately I was so busy thoroughly enjoying my meal I totally forgot to take photos.More

Had a superb lunch here today! Only had an hour as my friend had to return to work, but service was fast and friendly. Menu was good, especially worthy of praise was the daily specials options... So unusual and imaginative. Refreshing to have something other...than the usual jacket potato or sandwich options u get anywhere! We both chose something from that and we were both impressed with our choices! By far the best lunch I've had out by far! Would definitely recommend and will be returning! Well done guys! 😊XMore

God forbid if you walk in the side door and ask for a table (apparently this is the unadvertised take away entrance only!) We got marched to the other door before being shown to a table. The coffee and cake is great just very unfortunate...the staff are grumpy and borderline rude. They could advertise as a 'Karren Cafe' at least then you'd expect poor service and rude staff instead of it coming as a shock.More

This place offers really lovely food, but the staff all appear to hate their job. I think if they had perhaps training which made then a bit more approachable & smiled then this cafe would be 5 star

We are regular visitors to Manillas and love the family run atmosphere. It does get very busy but if you book in advance it’s never a problem, I love the character of the decor - very mix & match but it works. The coffee is...divine and the food is always delicious & we’ve never had to wait too long for service. The majority of the staff are friendly, smiling and give us a warm welcome. As for the cakes 😋 yummy yummy - definitely worth a try with lots of different flavours to choose.More
