Striking a perfect balance between fresh and peaceful, guests are invited to bask in the ambience either inside amongst the tranquil sounds of flowing water, or out on the terrace. Adorned with the artistic masterpieces of the esteemed Paul Gauguin and Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Manava engages guests with a vibrant surrounding of Tahitian inspired Art Nouveau mastery, dedicating a separate room for each artist’s work.

Atmosphere is good 4. washroom is clean and looked nice 5. Food quality is awesome

We sat outside and too many ravens (corbeaux in french) were bothering us and even got some items from our plates when we went inside. Food and dessert could be better with a Mediterranean and French touch. Couscous was not good. Thank you anyway for your efforts.

The dessert range was limited and it would be better to have a wider variety of seafood and vegetarian friendly options.

The venue, staff, service and food surpassed my expectations. We were celebrating my Husband's birthday and they made it extra special for him. I would not hesitate in recommending this restaurant, it was amazing. Thank you to all the staff, especially the lady who seated us and arranged a special birthday treat for my husband.

Food ok, poor choice. Very difficult to find something for our children to eat. Needs a pasta and pizza station. Starters and desserts very limited selection.

Extremely excellent experience with all meaning, only service staff should pay more attention when you sit far from the buffet, we were asking many times staff to clear the table or serve hot drink, but it is perfect

Hi I booked a dinner with my work team, some of my colleagues are from Belgium and were not too impressed about the quality and variety of food from the evening buffet. There was no meat (beef), no fish (apart from sea food lasagna and fish burgers) , very poor selection. There was only a meat loaf that I would not eat. One type of curry (Korma), the quiche tasted like plastic. I have to say I did not have bad food like this for a long time. Very disappointed about the evening.
