The service was very slow, finding someone to take the order, then waited for our meals. Also, the same for our drinks. There was only 3 of us and it didn't seem busy. Great venue, fireplace for the winter, & the view over Manly Cove was lovely. But the service needs to be stepped up a bit. I was here... More

Had a great snitzel as part of their nightly food special, snitty and a beer for $20. Good customer service despite having differing prices between old and new menus spread out among the tables. They charged us more than the advertised older menu stated, but were quick and courteous when we pointed this out and refunded the difference.

As we liked craft beer decided to call in for a drink in happy hour. The choice of beers was excellent and the beers themselves just as indicated and tasted great. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the helpful staff in serving us. Decided to stay and have dinner, the menu is limited but good for all tastes and the food when... More

Called in on Sunday afternoon for a few drinks after a walk along the front. There was a good selection of drinks and the DJ was playing excellent songs. He made me wish it was a Saturday night!

Popped in this afternoon for a quick drink before heading back into the city. Service was very poor, not one of the workers looked happy!! We had to ask twice to get our order taken. I went to pay our waiter and got told I had to take it to the bar instead so I could get my change?! Only... More

Buzzing with locals and tourists. Bare wooden tables. DJ on Sat afternoon. Friendly staff. Great for sunset beers not fine dining. Love their chips!

Been here before and called in for a quick 1/2 litre of cold German tap beer. Very refreshing and always welcoming.

Busy, vibrant pub on the waterfront on Manly Wharf. Friendly staff, good Bavarian style beer, having done Munich many times it wasn't far off the quality of Bavaria. The burger and the Parmesan truffle fries were great, maybe a little more truffle oil would have taken them off the scale but great nonetheless. Really nice atmosphere watching the world go... More

The location of the Bavarian is breathtaking, with ocean views, so enjoying a drink here is highly recommended. However, my partner and me had dinner there last night and the food can only be described as average. The pork knuckle was so salty one could not eat it and the Schnitzel was soaked in fat, I assume they make it... More

Staying in Manly

Neighbourhood Profile
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 as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.
