Situated on Green Point Main Road, Mano’s is the ideal spot to stroll into if you’re looking for a hearty meal. With beautiful, large art-deco windows it is very inviting. Once inside, there is a large bar that dominates the middle of the room, and tables are simply laid with white cloths adding some class. There are black and white photographs of Mano and his family on the walls, enhancing the family atmosphere and homey environment.
The food is simple and tasty. What you’ll find on the menu at this family-friendly joint is humble, homemade style food. Classic bistro dishes such as fillet medallions with pepper sauce, Mozambican-style prawn curry and Mano’s famous chicken liver pasta make up the offering. They have old faithful’s like the light-and-lovely chicken limone and fantastic lamb chops. The creamy chicken limone is rich and satisfying. They also have daily specials that are definitely worth a look . The dessert menu only has four options but these are all a delicious way to end your Mano’s meal. The wine list has a few local favourites and of course a selection of beers. The pricing at Mano’s won’t shock your wallet and they pride themselves on having excellent value for money as you can get a two- course meal for only R100.
The staff are friendly and Mano’s is often seen chatting to customers and socialising with his guests, some of whom are local and international celebrities. This creates the aura of a well-run, family restaurant, which has become an iconic little place for the Green Point locals. Mano’s does not take bookings, so you are normally guaranteed a table but if they’re full, don’t worry! The turnover is quite quick so grab a drink and wait at the bar until a table is ready.
