“Happiness all around :)”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Our imprompto Sunday lunch was a truly enjoyable experience! This was the last stop for my sisters and I after spending the weekend together Living in Cape Town, JHB and London respectively this doesn't happen often! Great variety of choices on the menu, a charming waiter, quick service and the music made us want to jiggle our shoulders All three of us were very happy with our meals (lamb skewers with chilli and herb bread and chicken salad) and portions are hearty... I can imagine it being very cosy in the corner seating for a larger group of friends and will be back next time that I'm in the Cape!

“Pleasant food, not great service”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

We had a pleasant meal here but we ordered far too much food as the helpings are generous. The food is tasty. However, the service is not the best. We noticed that food was left sitting on the counter waiting for a server to distribute it. Some of it was sat there for a while. We also thought it was inappropriate for the chef to be chatting to a client at the counter, my objection being that the client was hanging around where other clients’ food was waiting to be distributed. The restaurant has plenty of atmosphere and is clearly very popular.

“Amazing food and service!”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

Manouche is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Stellenbosch! Everything bursts with flavor. The chef is extremely charming, always get good personalized service when you go in quiet times or with another lady friend :-)

Will definitely recommend. Nice and cozy. Just perfect for a couple or a couple of friends.

“Good food, generous portions.”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

Going to Manouche with a bunch of friends was a lovely way to end of a day of sightseeing, the food was lovely and the generous portions make it ideal for a family style meal. When it gets busy, the staff were kept very busy,but we didnt have to wait an unreasonable amount of time for our food. All in all, a lovly night.
