Was going to give this place three stars as it is very average but since its also expensive I can only give it two. My starter of prawn cocktail was just that - one prawn, a load of uncut lettuce and a bit of sauce with some sort of fish in it - it was one of the worst starters... More

Eating with a group can be challenging, but the restaurant took this in its stride. Mains were good - I had Tempura fish (dory) chips and salad, which was very good. Desserts ok, but the write up was better than the dish itself. Wine expensive. It was a Tuesday night, so not too busy. Food came promptly and service was... More

We went for dinner on Saturday night to celebrate our daughter's birthday. We hadn't booked but we're quickly shown to a table. Service was attentive and orders were taken promptly; no complaints with the waitstaff at all. But my husband's porkbelly crackling was soft and my fish in my fish and chips was raw! My meal was taken off the... More

Perfectly cooked medallions of steak was the highlight of my most recent meal on a busy Saturday night. The service as usual was spot on with no long waiting periods despite the restaurant being full. Friendly , efficient and well informed staff make dining here a delight. Nothing is too much trouble!

We've been coming to Whitewater for maybe 5 years and have had many good meals here. Last night was not one of them, but it will be our last. We had a booking for 7:30 for four people. Somehow we did not notice that the restaurant was almost empty when we arrived. It's important to note that as there were... More

We have just returned from Whitewater Restaurant where we had their degustation. It was appalling. The service and the quality of the food was terrible. Every course tasted as if it had come from the freezer section at Coles and neither the food or wine was ever introduced. We had no idea what we were eating OR drinking. SO disappointing.... More

If you are looking for a safe bet in Manly to enjoy good fresh seafood, prepared without frills, washed down with a fine wine, attended to by a caring and friendly team, with indoor or outdoor seating options located opposite the open sea … this post won't disappoint.
