“Great meal & excellent service”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We have just returned from an enjoyable dinner here thanks to the reviews of other contributors.

Looking for a place to eat in Ljubljana, we found that Manna was less than 5 minutes walk from our holiday apartment in the Old Town. Finding Manna was easy, but as it was 7.45 pm and had few diners, we approached with a little trepidation, as we prefer to see well- frequented restaurants.

Our fears were unfounded, as we had a delicious dinner of entree and main dishes, accompanied by a local Pinot noir called Zanut. For mains, my wife had fettuccine in a rich venison sauce, while I had slow roast suckling pork.. Mouth-wateringly soft and delicious.

Our waiter was superb. Friendly, knowledgeable about the food and Slovenian wines and, of course, courteous.

“Very dssappointing - I would not recommend it to anybody who is hungry”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

I selected this restaurant based on opinions in Tripadviser .... And it was a big mistake. The restaurant was almost empty but we waited and waited for our meals .... Appetizers were brought one hour after the order. Then we waited for the nets meals for one additional hour. In such a situation , we practically did not care about the food that was served ... I had the feeling that waiters were trying to avoid us.

Dear Mr. Jerzy,
We regret your negative feeling about your dinner in our restaurant, but if you and your friends wanted to have quick snack please next time let the waiter know about this.
Our waiter Mr. Jani is professional and kind and always takes good care of our guests and we're sure that if you would mention anything he would react properly.
We believe that 5-course menu can't be enjoyed in less than 2 hours, which is the time you spend for your dinner.
As for empty restaurant, you set on our summer terrace with another guests, inside on our first floor, we have 2 restaurant salons and because of rather cold temperature most of our guests were inside.
When/If you come to Ljubljana again, you're kindly invited to experience our cuisine and service which we'll make sure that will be our best! Welcome!

What a lovely place. Delicious food home cooked a feast for the eyes and palate. Try the Walnut Brandy and local wines. A must if you love great food at a good price. And great service and ambiance.

“Service here is in it's own class”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We visited Manna twice during our visit and we were blown away by the quality of service. The waiters put so much more effort than we ever expected during our visits. We have a baby and a toddler so the attitude towards us can differ quite a lot in different restaurants. Here the staff made sure that all of us were more than welcome and kept the children amused so that the adults could also enjoy the visit. Food that we ate was good but not remarkable. Portion sizes are not huge but still big enough for us. Restaurant looks cozy from outside and inside but we recommend to eat outside in the back of the restaurant where they have very nice courtyard. Manna seems to target as a gourmet restaurant so it is very affordable in it's class. We will remember this restaurant and their staff for a loooong time!

Old-fashioned (high quality) service and excellent food at very reasonable prices (4 course menu for 25 Euros). Very extensive wine list.
