A bit tired, needs to lift it's game

A long term great steak restaurant that now needs to lift its game to recapture its lost glory. Still great steaks and ribs with competent service but all a bit tired - now feels a bit like it is going through the motions. No condiments offered (mustard etc) and when horseradish was requested, was... read more

Steak exactly as it should be rare, rare, rare. Ribs juicy and tender and the service was great. Great South African wines too.

Frequent visitors many years ago before it changed hands. It was the place to go for Ribs and Rumps now its just an average restaurant. We found it to be expensive for what it was ($245 for 4 people) , the steak wasn't worth the price we were charged, the mushroom sauce lacking flavour. the ribs just ok, nothing exciting.... More

I found the staff very friendly and willing to explain choice dishes. It was our first time at the restaurant and I have to say the steak and ribs combo was sensational. The restaurant was relaxing and the view over Manly beach totally amazing.

Overpriced low quality pub food. Bad service and waiting staff. Sat at our table with half eaten plates of food for over 30 mins waiting for drinks and to clear so we could look at desert alas this never happened. Ended up paying $200 for below average ribs. Lamb tasted like mutton.... Beef was tough and chewy...... Park was passable... More

This restaurant is a pleasant enough place with upstairs seating that looks out over Manly beach and the ocean. The staff were friendly but initially service was slow for the drinks order. The food was good and freshly cooked to order, not like other similar restaurants where ribs are prepared prior to order. The 3 types of ribs, pork, beef... More

Went the other night with a party from work. Initial drinks were fairly quick but when we started to order food that's when the staff struggled, maybe they invest in some technology rather than a pad and a pen? My steak was very good, presentation not the best but I was hungry. My colleagues had a variety of different stuff... More

Overall nice meal but not memorable. Unfortunately had to wait a long time for mains and staff seemed to forget about us. Staff seemed quite chaotic but were apologetic about our wait. Our starter was great was a share platter and the seafood was cooked beautifully. Had the ribs for main and they were nice but not stand out. I... More

We are visiting Sydney and met with a friend in Manly. Decided to go to this restaurant for late lunch/early dinner. Service was great! All the food that was ordered, no-one was disappointed! Perhaps a little pricey but we really enjoyed the food and the scenery looking over to Manly Beach!
