This was for a $35 main course. Another of us... More

This cafe restaurant has a great selection of the standard cafe meals. Always has friendly customer service with well made good tasting coffee but don't go here for a cheap meal. All meals are of high quality, well presented but aren't massive meals. This is more your fine Café dining with prices at the higher end. It has a great... More

Great views, great value, great service. This cafe / restaurant is worth the drive over to Manly. Our group of 6 friends were more than impressed with our gathering at this popular spot. The risotto and barramundi, Thai chicken curry and corn fritters are all highly recommended. Oh, and don't forget the desert display, a must do! Plenty of parking... More

I've eaten here a few times. Breakfast is very good indeed - probably your best best. I've also eaten lunch here - a bit pricey and not massive portions but pleasant. Service isn't fantastic. The views are good and it's elevated for nice breezes.

We had brunch here yesterday after our usual place was closed for renovations and we were very pleasantly surprised. The setting on the esplanade is lovely, no water view as such but very nice none the less. The service was good and the menu comprehensive. The prices are a little higher than other places in the area? and there was... More

Went in for brunch on a Sunday with family. There was an extremely long wait for food. They forgot out coffee order and only prepared this after we reminded them 20 minutes later. This happened on a previous visit to this cafe so it seems to be the norm here. A table next to us, also experiencing the horrendously long... More

Came by chance to find this little beauty. Just across the road from the Sunday markets at manly. Happen to find a free table. What a great find. The service was good and menu the usual array of food that always seems to capture your taste buds. I ordered the fish and chips and was not disappointed. The serves are... More

Olivers was a lovely pace to celebrate our daughter's 12th birthday. The service was fantastic and the food was very good. There was plenty of variety in the menu and specials which cater for all cuisine preferences.

I'm a sucker for corn fritters, and these corn 'pancakes' didn't disappoint. $17.90 with crispy bacon and you can order potato Rosti on the side for $2. My friend had the Smoked Salmon with Rosti, also $17.90, and was very happy as well. The coffee was a little too weak for my liking, but that was the only negative. A... More
