first thing - check if the restaurant has more than two people in it - if so, walk away. Your takeaway coffee will be last behind everyone in the restaurant. Each person in the restaurant adds 5 minutes to your wait time. If you *still*...More

A very basic and very noisy average restaurant. It’s like a low class rabbit warren. Outlook is nice, but that’s all. It’s NOT a hotel restaurant and although the staff are young, efficient and helpful, their attire is quite poor. Pricing is reasonable but don’t...More

We came for a family celebration at lunch time, and had booked months in advance. Sadly, despite the advanced booking, we were seated in a tight area on a table that would comfortably fit 8 people - but we had booked for 13 AND 3...More

Manly Wine is one of the most frustrating cafes in Manly. It's part of the Sebel Hotel at the south end of Manly beach. The location is quite amazing, with large open doors that look out across the road to the surf beach. Visually everything...More

Food was nice but we needed to ask the waiter if we could have menus, have the table wiped down, get napkins. For this price I would expect more. Lucky for them they have a great position on the beach!

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
