My husband and I visited Chica Bonita on a Sunday night for dinner and drinks. We didn't have to wait for a table at all, with the hostess seating us almost straight away and bringing our drinks shortly after. My husband really enjoyed the classic...More

Finally after much anticipation my friends and I took the trip to Manly on a cold Tuesday night. Fortunately for us, we only had to wait 5 mins for a table but I know the queue can often be quite long. Our food took a...More

If you love Mexican food and appreciate great service you simply have to come to this place for lunch or dinner while in Sydney... you cannot book, but that shouldn't deter you. The food and drink is simply outstanding and the service just makes the...More

We came here on a recommendation. Mid week in the middle of winter (low season) it was packed so we expected they were doing something right. This is not your tired suburban Mexican restaurant. The best way to describe it is Mexican Yum Cha. If...More

Food is delicious, but the staff is quite rude. The chips with steak, guacamole and salsa are a must try!

Great margaritas & burrito. Cheap and friendly. Very busy but they let you register and wander off a bit and message you when table ready. Well run fresh ingredients and tasty

The place is nice, cozy and with a good atmosphere. But the food could be really improved. We tried the Carne Fries and the Cali Burrito. The fries were fine but nothing special and quite small. The burrito was a bit better, but in my...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
