After walking for 2.5 hrs from Spit Bridge to Manly we were in dire need of some good food and wine which we found at Fiasco. The food was excellent as was the service, very friendly, nice casual dining.

Having fish and chips at Manly Beach is just awesome! It's obviously fresh and delicious. Plus it's $15 only. Nice atmosphere and friendly service. Definitely a good choice at Manly.

I had the fillet steak and it came out cooked exactly as i requested - rare. I am continually amazed at the number of times I order a rare steak and it comes medium or well done. The veges were nicely cooked. My friends had chicken and mushroom risotto. The servings were generous and they enjoyed them.

Visited Manly on a blustery evening when all the restaurants were very busy but found this lovely restaurant serving great food and spent a pleasant evening. It was one of the highlights of our holiday.

Being a server in a busy restaurant is hard work. Watching them rushing here and there made me somewhat hungry, and when the food arrived, I was not disappointed. Fish with a beetroot dressing, crispy skin, yum. Pity the kitchen was not as efficient as the front of house staff with my partners food arriving some time before mine. She... More

We went to fiasco after not being able to decide what to have for tea and we didn't have high hopes of having an amazing dinner. But it was the best food we had whilst in Manly, the salt and pepper squid was amazing and perfectly cooked and the risotto and seafood marinara were perfect! Service was excellent as well!... More

Its a curious name but this belies the fact it's good value, food quite reasonable and service pleasant. Its the cheapest fish & chips in Manly and wine is well priced. In summer, as its in Wentworth Ave looking south, you get a great breeze. Parked outside in the Alfresco table's there is the endless parade going buy.

I had the Minestrone followed by Fush and Chips. Soup was perfect but the batter on the fish was thick and gluey on the inside. Looked large but a very thin piece of fish inside. Overall a disappointment so wouldn't go back.

Great Italian food. We were a group of 6 adults who ordered a variety of entree and main courses. Our meals were truly delicious and I highly recommend the king prawn fettuccine.

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.
