We had a voucher lunch deal for this restaurant. Travelled from Sydney on Manly ferry and found the place with no problems. Even though it was packed we were seated in a comfortable area without any problems. The deal was explained to us and exceeded what we were expecting. The food and service just blew us away.The serves were exceptional... More

I'm a regular at this fabulous beachfront cafe. Great for brunch or dinner, dates or a catch up with friends. Go for cocktails and wine or a cup of coffee and a muffin. Very busy on weekend mornings - sometimes there's a short wait for a table - but the sea views & tast food will more than compensate!

Like other reviews. Quality ingredients, fresh, tasty, served timely, and surprisingly cheap. Great coffee. Took a little while to get our bill but this was over Mother's Day. Staff are friendly. Great atmosphere.

We stayed in Manly for two weeks and chose to eat here most days either for breakfast or dinner. The standard of food was exceptional, there was lots of choice and some interesting innovative dishes too. The food was exceptional - from the scrambled eggs in the morning to the main courses in the evening. Smaller tasting plates accommodate lighter... More

Jellyfish café is located opposite the North Steyne Surf Club half way between Manly & Queenscliff Beach. This café is constantly busy but still offers good service, excellent food & a very relaxing atmosphere. As locals we often come here for breakfast ( that's if you can get a table) & its always been terrific. The café is very family... More

My friend, who is a Manly local took me to Jellyfish for lunch. The food was fresh and delicious, the staff were super friendly, the decor is stylish and it's just far enough away from the busy mall. The crem brûlée is amazing!

This restaurant had been recommended to us by friends who live in Manley and we were not disappointed. I had the chicken and my husband had lamb. Both meals were excellent. The service was very good and the manager, a young English girl, was lovely. She gave us advice on our menu choices and we had a very pleasant chat.... More

Situated midway along Manly ocean beach between Queenscliff and The Corso and with ocean views this is a great spot for "people watching".The establishment is pet and children friendly and so is very popular, especially at weekends so you may have to wait for a table, but the wait will be worthwhile.Like many restaurants in and around Sydney as soon...

This was our first day in Sydney so, jet lagged, we took a ferry to Manly & had a wander along the beach before lunching at Jellyfish. The fish was very good; the service efficient & friendly. Nice outlook, too - away from the main bustle.
