Service and food was lovely but quite expensive for tapas style food. A happy buzzing place with lots of locals and tourists enjoying a night out.

Three of us had lunch and all were catered for. The atmosphere was genuine. It was like stepping back in time to a visit in Corfu; wooden tables and chairs, check table-cloths, friendly bustle and many delicious aromas as the meals came out. I had the Spanakopita which came with salad this cost $16 AU which is about average for... More

We went on a Wednesday night and it was pretty busy with a varied crowd. Acoustics must be good as it was easy to have a conversation with full tables close by. Service was efficient but no one was particularly friendly. Food was good, fresh, hot and came out reasonably quickly. Definitely worth a second visit.

We will definitely be returning and suggest you get down and... More

My wife and I are regulars at Manoli's in Darwin either together or with others. The other night, a Friday night, we had to be somewhere and they were busy. But they got us in and with the boozokia music we got fed and entertained all in a tight timeline. I love their calamari but to be honest there is... More

Really tasty hole in the wall eatery. A nice traditional Greek style restaurant with pleasant live music, a bustling vibe and delicious food. It's not a fancy place, but a friendly, welcoming restaurant with cute blue checkered table cloths. Would highly recommend the seafood platter. It's suggested for two, but it's more than enough for three (its a bit too... More

We accompanied some friends who were relocating South from Darwin. What better place to enjoy a last meal in what is almost an icon of Old Darwin. Amidst the newly minted Tapas bars & hipster eateries that are springing up in Mitchell, Smith & Knuckey Streets, Manolis relaxes like your favourite lounge chair. The service as usual was accommodating, friendly... More

We had a really lovely Greek meal of scallops and meatballs made of minced octopus. The salad was fresh and crisp. The dessert was freshly made vanilla slice. Serving sizes were just right. Delicious coffee.We found that the wine list was excellent, although predominantly Australia wines. Well priced. Service was attentive but not intrusive. We had a very romantic dinner... More
