Worst service experience. Good food but the service was so bad and it felt like this person did not want to service us. Kept ignoring us and all we wanted to do was order more things. Food was nice but very disappointed with the service...More

Last minute brunch before jazz festival. The Big Breakfast is delicious and great value for money. We also had the mussels (heaps of them) and the mushrooms. All very delicious. The staff are very attentive and friendly. Highly recommended.

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
