“Great place for lunch or dinner - summer or winter”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

I;ve been to Manos in Greenpoint and find it noisy - this second one that Monos opened a year ago is perfect. It's midtown (Park is off Kloof St), easy parking because of the underground next door and the food is great. The ambience is nice, the service was great and there was a fireplace, which is always sublime in winter. It's pleasantly and comfortably laid out. We went - 3 adults, a teen and a child and every one of us was very happy with our food. The pizza was excellent and the wine isn't over-priced as in many CT restaurants. Manos is known for his prego rolls and offers chicken or steak. And the chicken limone was excellent. So it's great for families, couples or friends. A good all 'round place. In summer sitting out on the patio is great, but they should consider heaters for that area - for smokers and those who just like to sit outside even in our winter! Oh, and they make the most wonderful chillie, garlic sauce. Love it! Ask for it.

We came here for lunch after arriving in Cape Town. We had 4 different dishes and all very tasty and well presented. The service was great with friendly smiles all round. Wil definitely return.

“Mano's - the tradition carries on...”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

I have been going to the original Mano's in Greenpoint since they opened around 15 years ago. Their sister restaurant Mano a Mano lives up to the same good reputation - great simple food, service with a smile and a nice buzz. The outdoor terrace is fantastic for alfresco dining on a sunny day with it's large umbrellas. For winter days there is a huge fireplace and lovely bar area. I recommend the chicken al limone - delicious - and the salads are really good too.
