We loved the food so much that we ended up going twice over a 4 night stay in Manly. Not only was the food amazing, the service was excellent as well and the view was beautiful. Highly recommend this restaurant if you are visiting Manly.

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
