Recline into plush crimson seats at one of a dozen or so hardwood tables at this cozy basement pub; order a single malt scotch or an imported brew and relax. Authors read their works periodically during the week and the famed Sunday brunch was voted "Best Brunch" two years running by readers of Xpress, Ottawa's entertainment newspaper. No wonder, with goodies on the menu like Eggs Ireland (two poached eggs with sauteed spinach and bearnaise sauce on an Irish muffin) and stout French Toast stuffed with bananas. Traditional pub grub, including Shepherd's Pie and burgers are offered, as well as more upscale choices, like Moroccon Stew and grilled salmon.
Best Pub Brunch in Ottawa. Good beer selection, not too pricey. Great atmosphere. Overall a wonderful neighbourhood pub that I would go to more often if I lived closer. It was even better when it was a smokey little hole and many of the trendy yuppies stayed away, since the non-smoking laws came in it has become very popular, and often crowded.
I've been to the Manx a few times, usually for just drinks. After hearing some rave reviews about the food recently, I decided to go eat there with a friend. It turned out to be a huge, overpriced disappointment. The food was quite uninspired and bland. Myself and my dining partner did not even bother to eat our entire meals, which is unusual for us.
Next time I'll stick with the drinks and the cozy atmosphere.
Some may like the Manx, but why should one go if one can't find a place to sit or even worse there will usually be a bunch of "so-called" regulars that will feel entitled to be there more than you. Go elsewhere. You'll feel better about your experience.
Yes, the Manx is cosy, has an interesting variety of delicious food (including their own fancy hot sauce if you know to ask for it), a wide selection of beverages, and a friendly artistic staff and clientele.
But so crowded most of the time.
You'll get a table much faster if you go somewhere else.
I liked this place when I went in July 2005.
It has creative pub food with nice vegetarian options.
Check out the specials, they are good.
Could use more light, but it is basement, so what can you do?
Service was nice and the prices reasonable, I would recommend.
