"Nice place for afternoon drinks"

On a recent visit to Manly, we stopped here for a beer and a glass of wine before getting the ferry back. There is a good drinks selection and it is a lovely spot to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine. We didn't eat but the food looked good.

I've dined at the Barvarian many times but this time only had time for an afternoon business drink. Nice choice of beers and good service as usual. A slight oddity now that paying by credit card at the table incurs a fee, and we were told to go pay at the bar instead, where it took a while to get... More

Sydney on Christmas Day and to find a pub open for a lunchtime drink was hard both in the Rocks and at Manly. Here was the saviour, and not suprisingly it was busy both on the beer front and food. Excellent service and the staff had made a great effort with their outfits. It is a good place to go... More

We gave this spot the benefit of the doubt so we tried it again. Server was a little too friendly bordering fake & blamed us & sprinkled a few swear words when we drank shots that were delivered to our table mistakenly. We told the server who delivered it that we didn't order it. And our server charged us for... More

We had lunch at this restaurant and would recommend it to anyone visiting Manly. They have a great selection of meals at a reasonable price, the staff are very attentive and are happy to cater for individual needs and the meals are delicious. A great place to have a meal if you are at Manly Wharf.

Went for a weekday lunch with the family. Worst restaurant staff I have experienced. Staff forgot orders. Another couple walked out after their drinks (without paying) because staff never came to take their orders. Another group went and picked up their own orders from the pass because they were just sitting there getting cold. Not one staff member noticed. Shocking... More

We stopped here for a coffee and smoothie. Total $12. When we went to pay we were told they would charge us an additional 16.7% ($2) to pay with our credit card - that is extortion given the banks do not charge anything like that for the commission. Prior to paying, we had decided to make a reservation for tea... More

Nice friendly staff. The kind that smile and offer to take a group photo :) We had a lovely view from our table. Enjoyed the beer and the mussels. However the salt and pepper squid was over cooked. rubbery, bland - no salt and pepper detectable. The aioli was so sparse on the plate, couldn't help thinking if you can't... More

Dropped in here after an evening walk and really fancied a wheat beer. The beer was watery tasting and the bar person was pushy and rude. Would not go back.
