Welcome to Manna Epicure

Welcome to Manna Epicure

Until Covid-19 came to shake everyone's world, manna epicure was a French-South African bistro opened 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Different stages of lockdown affected those operating hours so please keep on checking the website for updates.

The passionately-crafted menu is a mix of French and South African cuisines, with an exciting new twist. Our chef has reinterpreted the classic dishes of both countries with a rustic flair.

Due to the need to adapt to a new way of life where social gatherings are frown upon, instead of closing down, on the 5th May 2020 manna re-opened as a Chef-led gourmet deli.

Since then, the lockdown has been eased up so we re-opened as a sit-down restaurant and we kept some parts of the deli and sell bread off the counter.

The good news is that we are still standing despite the challenging loss of revenue manna incurred throughout the year and even more so since the ban of alcohol imposed on the 28th December, and again on the 28th June our level of business at dinner time has been so low, manna only went deeper into debt.

manna is now opened as follow;

From 7h30 to 16h Sunday to Tuesday and until 21h Wednesday to Saturday  and due to high demands on the 3rd October, we are also opening Sunday evening

Please don't stop supporting us... 

An exquisite experience for all the senses.

About us

About us

In the glamorously frenetic world of London hospitality, two extraordinarily different souls came together to cause a delicious, dynamic fusion of the most chic French flair with a rustic South African approach and a passion for conjuring new combinations of world flavours – all underpinned by classic French styling and a commitment to authenticity.

"I believe a restaurant is a theatre. People yearn to be entertained: they arrive hungry – for food, for joy, for beauty. This is what we love to give our guests. At the start of each new day, I say to my staff, “IT'S SHOWTIME!"
