Have been to the Jah Bar several times now and got to say their food is outstanding as are their cocktails. It is the best place in Manly to sip the night away whilst slowly working your way through the tasty tapas menu marrying it...More

My partner and I stumbled across this lovely place on Saturday afternoon and immediately we were greeted by Colin the owner and treated like family. The food was incredible, service was even better, and the drinks were reasonably priced! ($5 tequila shots - amazing!) We...More

What a great little place. Popped in here for some dinner as cooking was just not going to happen tonight. Pulled up a seat at the bar which allows you to watch the chefs in action. Had a quick look at the menu but thought...More

Nice, friendly service and the bar has a pleasant vibe, once they turned the music down from disco levels, but the tapas is average. Nothing wrong, just nothing to write home (or post here) about.

Jah Bar is a busy place overlooking Dee Why beach so booking is advisable. It is a tapas restaurant and each and every course was both imaginative and delicious. We enjoyed a house bottle of red and had no complaints until the bill arrived. We...More

I last dined here around 18 months ago and loved it. Tonight I left feeling like we had an average meal. The roast beetroot salad I am sure was tinned, sliced beetroot. The chorizo was ordinary as was the sangria. Anyway, I will give the...More

I did think that waiting around 15 mins to order an initial drink was tardy service, but it turns out they were two staff down on the night, so allowances must be made. The food was very good, although the weakest of the lot was...More

Food was delightful. I think our group ordered about 15 different tapas plates and not one person was disappointed with what they tried. The food can be a bit pricey, but it wasn't too pricey. If you were on a really tight budget I would...More

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
