Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great location especially at sunset. Service is excellent and the menu has something for all. I loved the desserts so am always happy. Parking can be tight but get there early. Nice selection of wines and beers

Wonderful setting overlooking the Narrabeen lagoon. Holley was an excellent waitron serving our table efficiently and a very endearing personality. My salmon was well cooked and very tasty. My friends were equally happy with the quality of their dishes. Lovely lunch.

This was the busiest day with 120 people booked for lunch including a very large group of ladies, maybe 90 odd . Our group of 10 who required the lift could not have been looked after better by the owner Jim and all his staff.... All our food choices were excellent and served without any delay . Congratulations Limani . We will be back .More

7:30pm booking. Ordered garlic bread and the seafood platter. Weren't served the main until 8:50. Spoilt dinner as that is too long to wait and too late to start eating a large meal. We were about to walk out as the food arrived. Food was...just ok but nothing to rave about. The hot food was only just warm when it arrived, cold before we got to eat the vast majority of it. Certainly not worth the price we paid. Very disappointing. Won't be back.More

Used to be one of the best in Narrabeen. Not anymore. The view is excellent can't say the same about the food. Veal Scallopini were served without creamy sauce. Management not coming forward with an alternative , Had to ask for a discount as food...was inedible. Will not be returning to Limani. A great shame for such a beautiful location.More

Lovely seafood. Had the squid for an entree which was nice but seemed a little undercooked and on the ‘cool’ side when arrived at the table. Had the prawns for main which were delicious. Came with chips and salad. Have been going there for years...and will continue to do so but hopefully they will keep an eye on the temperature of the good coming out.More

Celebrated a special birthday with family. All chose something different and no one was disappointed. Cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Back soon!

Visiting from Darwin and this restaurant came up on a google search. The food was delicious. Lots of gluten free options on the menu (I’m a coeliac) and a few extra options with a little tweaking from the chef. The staff were amazing - very...attentive and accommodating. I only wish we had of been there during the day, the view would have been lovely. Definitely recommend this restaurant :-)More

This was once a really good restaurant but what a huge disappointment this time. We were there to celebrate our daughters special birthday. We chose the three course party menu. Three of us had the wagu beef which was inedible. Very tough and terrible taste....Fish and chips were ordered by three in our party which were soaked in oil and fish tasted as though it had been frozen. When I arrived home I was physically sick which truly is not a good sign just coming back from a restaurant. Not sure if this restaurant has been sold and taken over by other people but it certainly was not of its usual consistent standard. We will never use this restaurant again - terrible! thMore

Been to this place so many times over the last 15 -20 years, always enjoyed quality special meals . Sadly It’s really gone downhill after covid, been for both lunch and dinner within the last month and the main seafood meals were poor, no flavour...or veggies as described just plain and topped with potato and a white sauce. Nothing special anymore.More

This restaurant needs to get the basics right: teach staff how to speak to customers - "Watch out" is not an appropriate way to excuse yourself; serve drink before the entrees, don't try to take plates away while guest are still finishing their meals. Otherwise...the food is good and the price is reasonable.More

This will be my third time here, and this time round was not the same. Starters were top notch, our mains took so long to come out, I had 1 cider, and when i went to order another one, they had run out. The girl...that served us was very friendly and attentive, but just be weary you do not get hit with the sparkling water charges on the bill.More

We came with the extended family so managed to order a number of dishes across the menu. Highlights on the menu were the garlic prawns, the tasting plate which gives a cross section of the seafood, the lemon tart. The service was great, they never...rushed us. The views during the day are across the water so is lovely to look out on. Can highly recommend it.More

Yes, there are also tables on the ground floor .If I remember well, maybe a bit rough the surface, but no stairs.
