We had lunch and it was fantastic. We had the two courses with either wine or beerfor set price of $40. The portions were more than ample plus the food was great and the service was perfect. I would there again.

It's just a short walk from manly beach port. Must say that price is slightly on high side but worth every penny. Oysters are delicious and the pork belly equally nice. Fried fish is nice but will be nicer if it can be a bit...More

Hi Jon, Thank you for comments. I am glad you enjoyed the food. Please accept my apologies for the lack of care from the waiter. I would really like to follow up with your server. From my perspective, 'good enough' really isn't good enough. If...More

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
