Manoli's Mezes Mediterranean Cafe serves up food on the Southern Coast. With a focus on seafood and Italian food, there are some tasty options on the menu.
There is a large selection of pizzas and pastas on the menus, with a range of toppings available. Their toppings are fresh, and the pizza bases are thin and crispy to make sure that you're enjoying the flavours and not just a doughy base. Being by the beach the seafood dishes scattered through the menu makes sense. You can enjoy it on your pizza, in your pasta, or just as a stand alone meal.
The star attraction of Manoli's Mezes is their meze platter. Alongside the some seafood sides you'll have dips, hot and cold meats, fetta, pitta bread, and more. This is the best way to experience the Mediterranean cuisine.
There is also a good range of desserts to finish off your meal at Manoli's. From pies, to cakes, to tarts. All of the options look delicious, so you might have a hard time choosing. If you're wanting a lighter option then Manoli's serve up some gelato as well. There aren't any extravagant dessert options, but these home-style cakes and tarts are a great end to the meal.
The atmosphere at Manoli's is fairly laid back and casual, it does have a real café feel to it. You can head here for breakfast any day of the week, and their menu has their usual fare of eggs, pancakes, and toast. The cafe joins some other good places to have breakfast at Port Noarlunga by the seaside.
Manoli's doesn't serve up Michelin Star food, but they do have some nice options that set them apart from some regular Italian dining options. There could be a bit more of a focus on Mediterranean food, but what they do they do well.
Manoli's are open 7 days a week, 9am till late on week days and 8am till late on weekends. BYO, $10 per bottle.
