We went Easter Sunday as a family of four. The service was first-class from a very nice, casual waiter. He was extremely thoughtful and attentive. The food came out at excellent intervals, we never felt rushed or like we were waiting. The quality of the food was amazing, better than any other place in Manly. We are locals and have... More

Whenever I go to Manley I make jellyfish my place for breakfast. I always have the same food as it's so good. The eggs benedict is beautifully cooked and their coffee is the perfect pick me up. It gets very busy so service can be a bit slow to place your order but food comes quickly after. It's also quite... More

I've had 2 oustanding meals here. The Lamb shoulder (Scrumptious ) & their Barramundi . I found the Barramundi expertly cooked but the sauce which included Chorizo & calamari a bit spicy for me. However my dining companion found it perfect. I'd highly recommend this restaurant as everything is delicious & best cappuccino by far in Sydney. I'll be back... More

Visited Manly on business with a group, found this place for breakfast. Had an omelet, very well presented and tasty. The coffee was good and the service quick. Good effort, Jellyfish

We had a delicious dinner at this busy restsurant. It was very noisy but that is to be expected on a Saturday night. We loved the grilled haloumi cheese, chirizos, mixed seafood grill and the seafood pasta. The servers were friendly and always on hand. I definitely would love to dine here again the nest time I am in Manly... More

I love this place. The menu isn't overwhelming, the service is quick and friendly and the food delicious. Last night we had the barramundi with chorizo and calamari which was excellent as was the chicken with kaffir and coconut rice. We are locals and this restaurant is perfect for a mid-week meal when it's a little less frenetic.

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.
