Consistently good!

I love Jellyfish. Far enough away from the tourists if you're a local and the food and service are always great. A Manly staple offering all day brekky options, a nice little tapas menu and some delicious cocktails.

Definately worth a visit if your in Manly. Was told by a few friends to go here and wasn't disappointed. Good service, well priced, would go back again.

Excellent food and service, good atmosphere. Busy little place away from all the hustle and bustle in the centre of Manly. Definitely worth a visit and we would go back again.

Had dinner here with friends because we couldn't get a reservation at Garfish. Initially seated outside but when we asked, we were moved inside because, even in January, it was a bit chilly. Food was extremely good and service excellent. Recommended.

--> 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...

We have been to the cafe on a number of occasions for breakfast when visiting Manly. I am hooked on the eggs benedict and the servings are adequate. It has a comprehensive menu for all tastes and requirements (eg gluten free, vegetarian). It is very busy especially on the weekends. The service is good and the staff friendly.

Jelly Fish Cafe is a popular Manly spot for watching the local crowd, waves and, at the right time of the year, whales too. Outdoor or indoor seating, a great menu and it's fantastic location across the road from the beach, ensure that it's usually pretty busy in summer - particularly over the weekend. Live music on weekend evenings, candlelight... More
