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

Just had 21st birthday for our daughter and I can't speak highly enough about what a great spot this is. Friendly service and magnificent food and a big open air view to top it off.

Having beem here before and had reasonable meals we booked as a group of friends for a Christmas lunch which was a set menu. There were 3 options and we picked the middle ground so to speak. Food was very hit and miss and when it was a miss it was terrible. The turkey was so dry it was hard... More

With magnificent views over Manly beach, this is the best place for a fun summer lunch! We just happened to arrive when they were having a Chandon promotion and we were asked if we would like to enjoy some complimentary seafood and Blue and White bottles of chilled Chandon sparkling. Wow! With a classic take on the Hamptons beach house... More

I went there with my daughter for lunch. We were given a spot despite the fact that we hadn't booked and were early for lunch. Wait staff appeared with menus and provided water unasked. The food was disappointing. I ordered a vegetarian dish haloumi with tomatoes, bread and chilli. At my request the chilli was not added. The food was... More

Dined with a group of ladies for dinner. Cocktails were great, food was horrible. Ordered the lamp rump dish and it came out too rare, limp and cold. Smokey eggplant purée had no smokiness. Tiniest meal I have ever received for $34. Will not be dining here in the future.

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.
