Great food and great service

We had a great dining experience here. The food and service is really good. We've been here a few times over the past few years and it has never disappointed.

As a top level TripAdvisor contributor, I hope you will take my review to heart. I rarely, if ever leave a negative but this review needs to be read and the management of Bavarian Bier Café Manly needs to head the feedback. My family and parents ate here in early January after a sightseeing trip on the ferry and decided... More

The location of this cafe is on manly ferry wharf, making it a great place to meet friends for lunch if they have caught the ferry over from the city. We had a pleasant lunch atmosphere here, the food... More

The best place to drink German beer in Manly - you can relax outside on the loungers, sit around a table chatting with friends, or head inside for open fires and a real bavarian feel. On windy or wet days, they put down the transparent blinds to keep you warm and dry, but you can still see the harbour. The... More

They changed from perfect imported Bavarian Beer to homebrew style rubbish and charge even more for it. The Lager is super sweet with no balance. Crafty cashing-in, hey. The Kölsch at Four Pines across the road is way better (tastes like beer at least)

I went recently with family and friends and had a great time in a great atmosphere. Although the beers were a little bit dear, the food was good.

After a 3 hour hot walk from the Spit to Manly (beautiful) a cold beer was in my dreams. We came here and were treated to excellent service by the friendly wait staff. You can make up your own salad from a checklist of ingredients which is fun and good value for $15. Only concerns were it was a bit... More
