Visited early on a Wednesday. 1st time ever after 20years in Manly and now I know why. Went to bathroom no paper towels to dry hands. Container empty. Would understand if it was 11pm but they had just opened. Were not offered any water. Pizza average best. To many other options on Manly for a below average experience

It was last minute booking, but good decision. From the moment we were greeted to our last goodbye's, it was very friendly, fast service to make our visit enjoyable. Nice jazzy music in the background, very rare that you can actually talk without yelling. They give coloring drawings for kids, to keep them entertained. Pizza (calzone) was really tasty. All...

We are locals and eat here reasonably often. We yearn for everything to come together to make Ironbark an iconic local eatery, and we'll keep coming here until it does, but...... The service is always friendly and helpful, although it is more about the people doing their personal best than a system that ensures consistently good service. If you like... More

Well we have been here twice and I must say have very attentive and friendly staff who go out of there way for families. Kids under eight eat for free so it just shows you they have thought about who are there clientele. However it's a smart pizza restaurant and great food. Go and enjoy

Love coming here. Great family restaurant, very kid friendly. The pasta here is to die for, I've tried a few different pastas and still can't pick a favourite as they are all AMAZING! Craving another visit, can't wait to come back with the family. Maria Lahm

Just Ordered a Tandoori Chicken Pizza and it was terrible. No Chicken on the Pizza at all. 15 Years ago I use to live in Collingwood street and would order Iron bark Pizza every week. Just Moved back into the area and thought I would try again. Never again. Very disappointed. Regards Marc from Fairlight

Hey Marc, Sorry to hear about your experience. Over the last few years we have gone out of our way to ensure loads of toppings on the pizzas but unfortunately we can't get everyone of them perfect with new staff and busy periods. It would be great if you could give us another chance. Cheers Ryan More

This is a great authentic Italian wood fired pizza restaurant. A selection of perfectly thin pizza bases with fresh ingredients. Absolutely delicious. Superb service from a wonderfully cute and friendly Italian waitress.

Every time we have eaten there it is a lovely meal, we have tried most of the pizzas and pastas now and no complaints. if you want a great Italian meal well with the visit. If you need Gluten free they have got you covered even your beer.

Ironbark has been serving up delicious, affordable, Italian-inspired food to Manly locals for almost two decades now, so you could say we know our stuff! Our tried and tested formula of simple, fresh food and a vibrant but laid-back atmosphere has built us a loyal local following. Our menu features delectable gourmet wood-fired pizzas, tasty pasta dishes and a tempting selection of seasonal and healthy options. Famous across the beaches for our gluten free options, we also have choices for our vegetarian, vegan and dairy-free friends too - all made from the freshest ingredients with a touch of Ironbark Italian flair! In summer enjoy chilling out under the lanterns in our beautiful garden, or in winter cosy up to our wood fired pizza oven; whatever the season the Ironbark experience always guarantees great food, an outstanding selection of Italian and Australian wines and above all a dash of fun and festivity. Whether it's an intimate dinner for two, a family affair or a large celebration with friends, we welcome groups however large; it all adds to the exuberant Italian ambience! And as a family run restaurant it stands to reason that we cater for even the tiniest of diners. Kids eat free* deals, a menu to please even the fussiest eaters and a good stash of colouring-in activities mean parents can kick back and relax. If eating in rather than out is more your thing we can deliver straight to your door; or call ahead and you can stop by and pick up your order. !

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.
