Manos is a must! He does the best Greek coffee and food... a real must. Great value and friendly service.

Manos is a true Greek foodies' heaven. The food is made by Manos himself and his team and is excellent. The prices are amazing too. I had the lamb mousaka with Greek salad and tzatziki, a glass of house wine and a baklava all for £10.50! Now that's amazing! The garden is also just as amazing, it's like sitting in Greece on some island! I've been back for food a number of times and I must say it just gets better.

I live just outside Oxford, had to come in during the bad weather and found this little place with really delicious Mediterranean food. At first I thought it was another cafe, but soon realised that everything can be taken away as well as eaten in. The best bit for me was the lunch offer they do. It's a reasonable menu to choose from, including a drink ( for me it had to be a beer! ) and all for £6.95!
I must add that the portions served were more than generous...no space for sweets, so I bought some to take home. What a wonderful find!

This place was a true suprise! We decided to have our Xmas party here as a number of my workmates raved about the place...and they were right. The food was delicious, from starters of mixed mezes, the mains were exquisite big portions full of flavour... mine was a wild mushroom & vodka risotto and the sweets... yummy and syrupy! After a wonderful 3 hrs we had been fed, 'watered' & looked after like royalty...we paid around £20 each!
We have already planned to book our next party there. What a brilliant find.

Delicious food and a friendly atmosphere. I attended one of their whisky and food tastings and would highly recommend it - an unusual combination and great value. There is more info on upcoming whisky and beer tastings at Manos here: http://www.compassbrewery.com/

This place is wonderful; the food is great and the staff are so friendly and helpful. I recently celebrated a friend's birthday here and Manos and Milos were so good to work with. Highly recommended.

Hands down, the best restaurant in Oxford and extremely reasonably priced at that- very student budget friendly. The food is truly exceptional, the setting is wonderfully friendly & informal, and the design of the place is fantastic. It caters to every type of special food requirement/allergy/diet also. A stand up joint.

All I can say about Manos's food is WOW, if you are ever in Oxford I thoroughly recommend you visit and try the delights available for yourself.
I have sampled 3/4 of the menu and it all tasted outstanding, was reasonably priced and very healthy.
Rob (Unverified), 01/03/09
Fabulous food - surely the freshest in Oxford! And at least as healthy as The Nosebag. At very reasonable prices too. I discovered it by chance the other day when I had an hour to kill before a film at The Phoenix across the road. I will definitely be going back! Again and again. Plenty of choice for both veggies and non-veggies.

My wife was away on business...I had guests, and Manos did me a fantastic dinner for 5. He gave me all the instructions on heating and I passed it off as my cooking!! (well, I told my guests later :) )...and all for £65!! Try his little shop of wonders, I know I'll be going back...

Went there for the first time today and definitely going back! Very good food at a reasonable price, and downstairs there's a great exhibition of photos of Venice with prints for sale. I met the artist and bought two of the photos which are now hanging on my wall! Also recommend the coffee, best I've had in Oxford, and the carrot cake was delicious too.

What a wicked place for jazz! Last week it was simly amazing...Kathleen Willison! and yummy freshly made Greek food, a glass of wine and all for just £12.95! FANTASTIC!
I can't wait for Saturday...Gwyn Allen, another amazing guy...and more food too!

I happened across this restaurant whilst house hunting in Oxford... and now can't wait to move into the house I hunted and start frequenting this friendly, delicious little place!

It was raining yet again the other day, so my husband and I poped in to get some of the delicious Meditteranian foods...but we ended up staying in...and dreaming of being in Greece in the sun with this lovely, scrummy food. We highly recomend this little gem of a food shop.
K&J (Unverified), 24/08/08
Manos makes easily the finest Greek food in Oxford ... maybe in the entire UK! The food is great, the staff are friendly, and the place has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Time seems to tick by a little slower and the pace is relaxed, generous, and kindly. This is a place where vegetarians would definitely find a lot of happy and scrummy choices on the menu, too. Everyone should definitely check this place out!!!
Maggi (Unverified), 23/07/08
We drove up from London to check this guy's food out. We heard good stuff about his food... probably the best Greek food outside Greece! Try it if you don't believe us.
Alex & Sara K. (Unverified), 08/07/08
We went down to Manos for a bite and ended ended up listening to some amazing Brazilian jazz and tucking in to some delicious home cooked Greek food...the amazing thing is that four of us had 2 bottles of wine, starters and main courses for under £75... If you get a chance try it...it's informal and very relaxed.

Me and my friend went to Manos yesterday and downstairs we saw a brilliant exhibition of oil paintings on Greek mythology by William Cotterill. They were extremely impressive Rembrandt/Caravaggio style paintings, well worth making the effort to go and see! Afterwards I had a delicious chicken wrap which was really really tasty and my friend had the moussaka and said it was amazing. What a great combo of food and art - we'll definitely be going again!
steve (Unverified), 21/05/08
One of the best restaurants in Oxford, hands down, and definitely the best value. It's really terrific food for not that much considering the extremely high quality, in a very nice setting, with friendly staff. Everything's good, but don't forget to have a glass of the excellent Greek white wine with your meal. I usually manage to have food and a glass of the wine for about a tenner, which is an extremely good deal.
Oxstudent (Unverified), 21/04/08
Check this place out! The food is amazing - real mediterranian home-cooked food...especially the moussaka and the spinach feta pie. Myself and three mates ate there and spent less than £10 each! The staff were great too. I've recommended Manos to my friends...we're going there midweek again.
sebastian (Unverified), 06/04/08
The olives, the olives - eat the olives! They always have a great number of dishes and new kinds of olives on display, and seem to spend a lot of care and attention on their produce. The service is consistently very nice and friendly, but the main dishes can get a bit pricey, and you can spend £20 without really realising it, as there aren't always price tags on display. So it's a good idea to ask! But the food is home-cooked and delicious, specially the moussaka and the ratatouille-like aubergine stuff. And the olives, which you can try before you buy, are always remarkable.

Manos did all my food for my wedding. We had such lovely homecooked veggie and meat dishes, salads and sweets. It was great. They even spent a couple of hours setting the tables up for us at no extra cost. My husband and I recommend Manos Deli for catering events... We got some of our friends to use them for a birthday party and that was really good too.
sara (Unverified), 25/01/08
That was a great evening out. There were 6 of us and we had meze plates of deliciously cooked greek foods. We had some great greek wines to try by the glass and the best ravani and baclava sweets. The atmoshere is very informal and can just chill out!
Try it! We'll be going again soon....
jes (Unverified), 05/01/08
I highly recomend this place.The food is all fresh, looks great and tastes out of this world.It's like the food my mum made back at home! My friends and i spent under £10 each and ate till we were full. We'll be going back again very soon.

Real Greek food and friendly service and generous portions at reasonable prices - what are you waiting for?
erica (DI User), 20/04/07
My self and two friends had the most amazing mousaka and lamb souvlaki (actualy cooked on a spit!!) and a light spinach & feta filo pie. We also had a greek beer each and a range of home made greek sweets, all for under £30!!! We will be back for more...

The food, the staff the atmosphere is just wonderful! It's redefining the eating out experience, you can relax in an informal environment and eat real Greek/Mediterranian food...excellent.
