We sat along one of the outside benches and had an amazing view of the local beach. Because of its location (close to the pier where the ferries dock and great views) we were expecting mediocre food. Imagine our surprise when we ended up having a great meal. I had one of their mocktails - a berry juice with lemonade... More

They just always get it right. Food is great, selection of wine is great, nice service, music is just right and with those killer views you overlooking Sydney harbour by sunset, or at any given time of tge day really, you can never go wrong.

This was definitely five stars for us, we loved the vibe of the place and the meal was great. Yes you have to wait for a seat and but they call you when your table is ready so we went to Manly Hotel and had a drink there as we are not locals and wanted to explore a bit. Manly... More

We typically stay away from places near the wharf as they're often tourist traps with marginal food. Local friend recommended this place and it has the be the best food I've ever had near a ferry landing with nice views to boot. The catch? Prices were lofty, but admittedly not over the top compared to other venues and the quality.

Situated on the wharf with great views. Food very good. Atmosphere electric. Service impeccable. Certainly recommend a visit. One of the best places to go when in Manly. Booking highly recommended as tends to be very busy.

Manly Wharf venue. Very busy - but great food and service. Most nights , will only take bookings from 5.30 - 6.30pm. they are full almost always after that anyway. So be prepared to queue , but when you get a table you will realize why the they are always busy. If you cant get in - there is always... More

Really beautiful spot, we can see Manly beach from our seat, really worth the price, even though it was a little bit expensive. And they serve some super tasty pizza at this restaurant!

Two dishes stand out for me ... the grilled Yamba king prawns are always delicious, and I'd go back for the sticky date and rum pudding anytime. Service is great, and everyone looks like a model, but the place is really echo-y and loud, so it's hard to have a proper conversation with your dining mates unless they're sitting right... More

Staying in Manly

Neighbourhood Profile
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 as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.
