“Tasty food in a tasteful restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2012

We enjoyed a really good lunch at this small and nicely decorated restaurant. It is located at the city’s high street, next to shops and other restaurants.

The Manbo’s restaurant itself is a “bistro” and it totally responds to its definition: A “bistro” is a small restaurant serving moderately priced simple meals in a modest setting.

We were looked after by nice and cheerful waitress. We didn’t have to shout “bistro” as the food was served pretty quickly. (According to a legend, the world “bistro” entered the French language during the Russian occupation of Paris in 1815. Russian officers who wanted to be served quickly would shout "bystro", “быстро”.)

As it happens often, there wasn’t much choice of vegetarian stuff. As a vegetarian I needed more time to choose a meal from the menu. My stomach was again saved by “Jacket potato” with cheese and beans. As a whole, “Jacket potato” is a good option for vegetarians in the English menu. It was tasty; the potato was quite big so I couldn’t finish it.

We also ordered spicy pasta with chicken as well as lasagne. They were obviously good as my husband and son finished them off with delight.

The desserts were also tasty. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the “Lemonade sorbet” yet it turn to be a nice lemon in ice. The Banoffee pie was yummy but a bit heavy.

In short, tasty food in a tasteful restaurant!
