Our first taste of Australia

We visited The Manly Grill for lunch on our first full day in Australia. I'd walked down Manly beach with my partner and his sister who we were staying with and we thought we'd take a break and watch the gorgeous views for a while. My partner likes a burger and he noticed the advertisement of a... read more

We arrived early evening to Manly Grill without a reservation but the man on the door was more than happy to accommodate us. He sat us outside with a lovely view of the beach - it was perfect! I had the bucket of prawns to start followed by the eye fillet which was cooked beautifully. The service was fantastic from... More

We have dined in Manly Grill on all of our trips to Sydney and it never fails to impress! I have tried several of the items on the menu, however my favourites have to be the soft shell crab, 'surf n turf', and their amazing Crème brûlée, which is served whilst still flaming! The staff are always very attentive and... More

I dont know if it was my bad choice or what but I ordered the wagyu steak here recently and was sorely disappointed. Maybe I should have gone for something more usual(and cheaper). GF had eye fillet and wasnt very impressed. I will give the place another go with a different order. The staff are friendly and the location is... More

We both had the soft shell crab and it was prepared perfectly! The service was amazing, everyone was covering everything, a good team for sure. Love the location right across from the beach. Prices were reasonable.

ribs and steaks are great - especially the rib-eye on the bone. Baked potato with the special sour cream is delicious, and a favourite of ours is the hot buffalo wings. Shame they don't serve any bread or garlic bread for starters. We did have one travelling wait staff who like to reach in front of you whilst serving. told... More

We went on a thursday night and it was packed. We found out later that Ribs and Rumps was closed due to renovations, hence why it was so busy. The waitress was superb. She knew all the specials and was very attentive to our table. The only negative was it took a bit over an hour for our food to... More

Went here on Saturday night for a friend's birthday in a group of 9. The service was great and the food came out quickly. I ordered the Tuna Steak Combo and asked for the tuna to be cooked rare. The tuna steak came out completely white, to the point where I am really not sure whether it was actually tuna.... More

We ate at Manly Grill on Friday night. My guest was late and the staff could not have been more accommodating. They were attentive but not overbearing, and looked after us incredibly well. Our meal was perfect (we both had croc and roo) and I cannot speak highly enough of the service we received. Thank you Manly Grill for making... More
