Great value and the best kids pancakes ever for $7. The eggs Benedict is fabulous and the big breaky and breaky wrap also. Generous servings and fast service. We have been 5 times now and have only had one (female) waitress that was not friendly, all the others have been so good that I leave a tip. The best soy... More

I'm reviewing Jellyfish again because this was the first time that we have eaten dinner there. We were a family party of 5 adults and 3 children and we had reserved a table. As soon as we sat down a waiter appeared with colouring books and crayons for the children; nice touch. The dinner menu contains all the standard Aussie... More

What a disappointing new years day lunch! We were seated and our table was absolutely filthy. The waitress half wiped it down, food all over the floor. We ordered and asked 3 different people for water. Which never arrived so I went and got it myself. I had a salmon open sandwich which was awful to say the least. Every... More

Truly a great spot just off the beach where the friendly, attentive and helpful staff trump the amazingly fresh and tasty food. This is a definite recommend for all Manly men and women ;) What are you waiting for... go!

We dropped in here by chance on a visit to Manly. It was late afternoon but the restaurant still catered for a late breakfast. Food was good, service not bad, tea and coffee good. It is located just across the raod from Manly beach, outdoor seating which gets a nice breeze, at least the day we were there. It lloked... More

Reasonable prices for location, opposite the main Queenscliffe Beach. There are three restaurants at this location and this was the busiest. We chose a children's sausage and chips; a shared beetroot, walnut and goats cheese salad, and marinated feta with pitta. We ordered promptly, and the drinks came but then waited more than half an hour for food whilst others... More

I've been to Jellyfish a few times and each time it's been hit and miss. Overall I would give it an average rating. The location is great and some of the things on the menu are good, i.e. the salads and the juices are great. However, today for lunch I had a sandwich - ciabatta with avocado, watercress, smoked salmon... More

We just returned from a one week holiday in beautiful Manly and had the great pleasure of dining at Jellyfish on 4 occasions. Including breakfast, lunch and dinner two nights. Every meal especially lunch and dinner was five star. The food is delicious, presented beautifully and terrific flavour. I had the chicken skewers with grilled pineapple and corn chips a... More

The setting is amazing right on the beach, the staff are friendly, the food is always really good and it's great value. One of my favourite places to eat in Manly. Great for breakfast, lunch, dinner or coffee.
