--> The food is still very good, but some female waiting staff could use a lesson in friendliness, and wear a smile on their face, or find another job... --> We wouldn't rush to go back to Jelly Fish purely from our unfriendly experience from a female member of staff sorting out the seating... --> There were clearly spaces available...

There's nothing to dislike at all. The staff are friendly, the food scrumptious and well priced, and its extremely child friendly. Probably avoid 9 on a Sunday if you don't like crowds! Try dinner, its much quieter and the food really is delicious. But please bring back the mushroom arancini tapas!

I have heard great reviews of this restaurant but when I went there the service was poor, we were given some of the wrong food! Wouldn't go there again, the place next door was great!

right next door to my preferred accommodation in Manly, this casual restaurant lives up to the hype and never fails to deliver top food and great service.
