Manna Epicure - a relaxed, authentic gourmet bistro situated in the heart of Cape Town.
manna epicure is a French-South African restaurant opened 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
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.
In addition to recently launching our membership program, manna has been working very hard to be able to cater for a wider market and we noticed the need for more gluten free options so very soon, manna will be not only be serving a whole range of gluten free bread, desserts and pastries but also be launching a retail range of almost ready to bake goods as well as a wide range of take away cakes and individual desserts.
Our opening hours;
Monday to Sunday from 8am - The kitchen closes at 22h every night.

An exquisite experience for all the senses.
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!"

What our clients say about us
The visitors loved the feel of the restaurant - great food and dining without the edge, so they fully relaxed. They asked me what to recommend and the menu was almost entirely changed from when last I visited. Great selection. Good, attentive service. Great portions. Think some in the party were overwhelmed! So pleasing to have such positive feedback from overseas guests who had been through quite a few CT restaurants during their visit.
My husband and I popped in for a Sunday breakfast- and had a great experience. Good, attentive service from all the waiters. The breakfasts were both delicious and served quickly. Also the juices were very yum!
Our first meal in Cape Town and it was perfect, we loved the atmosphere and friendly staff. The food was fresh and beautifully cooked. Highly recommend!
I have been coming here for years for breakfast or brunch and it is always a delight. The place is very cozy and rustic, delivering healthy and good quality food. The freshly made juices are delicious and the menu offers a good selection for all tastes. Can't wait to go back:) It is not very big so I recommend to reserve a table, especially in season.
Service, food, atmosphere - everything was perfect. Food was simple, not too complicated, but really good. We had steak tartare & fish of the day for main. Both dishes were perfect!. Steak tartare was prepared in front of us, so we can choose what we would like inside it. Service was quick & friendly I can highly recommend the place!
