Menu looked somewhat overpriced anyway but after asking the waiter why 6 prawns or crab was $30+ and getting a response that it comes on a salad... and asking the size of raw entres and being told small so order 2/3. It was clear this place is more focused on getting revenue than delivering quality and getting repeat custom. Waiters... More

This is a really cool place to chill in front on lovely Manly Beach. The coffees are not that great, the food is dressy cafe fare, and the service is a mix of passable to really friendly. Not a bad place, just know that the food is "OK", the service is fine to great, but the main hook is the... More

A wine bar on the seafront at Manly Beach serving food as well. We had fish and chips - one of us is gluten-free, so they grilled the fish rather than fry it in batter. Fantastic fish; chips were cold so they replaced them with an enormous bucket of freshly fried chips.

Position is excellent and the wine list is good, but the beer list should have more local brews, considering how many local brewers there are around Manly. The lunch food menu was a little boring, although our seafood was tasty. Be nice to have a small salad dressing the plate! The service started really well with the staff regularly checking... More

We were staying at the Sebel which is right next door so popped in for breakfast. This place is directly opposite Manly Beach with plenty of seating both inside and outside. It had been a wet week but the sun was out so people were seated in both areas. We got a table inside but facing the open widows so... More

I have eaten here many times over the past five years. I have to say it has gone downhill. The food was very mediocre and with so much completion around I'm amazed they don't up their game. Nice place to sit with a glass or two and chat but I prefer to eat elsewhere. Pity as I'm staying 20 metres... More

Staying in Manly

Neighbourhood Profile
Manly
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.
