Came here for a drink with my partner. We were so surprised by the speed of service. Food came out quickly and was delicious! But the beers stole the show. Our waiter Chris was extremely knowledgeable with the beers and recommended the Hb Dunkel! Would...More

My wife and I stopped off here for a well deserved drink after taking on the Manly Coastal Walk. The beer selection was great and the fact you can order a 1 litre stein of beer is brilliant. The menu was good and the portions...More

Good schnitzels, good beers, great water views and great service by Georgia. Complimentary sparkling on arrival for Mother's Day was a nice touch.

Love this place to just step off the ferry and into the beer garden. With a great selection of beers and service. Georgia was awesome as she gave great service to us and nothing too much trouble. Food was rather nice too.

Paying $30 for a Schnitzel hurt me, but I did it in the hopes that it would be spectacular. It was good but just an average Schnitzel with normal breading. I ordered it with fries ($2) and a beer and split everything with my husband....More

Standards have dropped re quality of food, only warm when served not everything on menu available, only informed after you order, now pay for extras, slaw tasteless, chips over cooked, service practically non existence, would definitely have second thoughts before returning.

Very disappointed, I have been several times in here but unfortunately quality of the food came down dramatically in the last 6-8 months, what it used to be a proper thick pork fillet steak with breadcrumbs has become panko breadcrumb with something as thin as...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

Overlooking stunning Manly Cove, Bavarian Bier Cafe Manly Wharf features large tables and spaces set aside for birthdays, celebrations and corporate functions, plus a cosy fireplace for the colder months.

Along with fabulous modern fare, there are 10 draught Bavarian Biers on tap and 10 imported Bavarian Biers available by the bottle.

It's the ideal place to sit back and relax with a stein and catch up with friends, family and colleagues as you take in the beautiful surrounds.
