Lovely dinner in an empty restaurant. Attentive service and wonderful food. The Moroccan Lamb is great and the Gnocci Marinara is sumptuous- perhaps a little too much unless you are starving. A good location right across from the beach. Book early.

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
