Seem to think that having a good location means they can take 20 mins to serve drinks and not apologise for forgetting orders. Ladies toilets are a disgrace and are never checked. Food is average at best.

This restaurant is located right in Manly Wharf. It's a beautiful ideal place to sit back and relax and enjoy delicious food, especially beer -battered fish with aioli sauce, in very very generous serving. The food selection is enormous and service is quick and friendly. The best time to come here for family get together is lunchtime, dining waterfront overlooking... More

We always love coming to the Bavarian beer cafe for dinner. Last Saturday night we went for a drink with friends. Our friends were served but when it was our turn to order the staff didn't seem to want to take our order. We nearly gave up and walked off. When we were served we were disgusted at the price...

Beautiful location looking out to sea, the sun was pouring in warming us on this breezy day. He wanted a cold beer and I wanted a coffee! Both were excellent but the salted pretzel with butter was a delicious surprise to our pallets. Yum! Staff were also friendly and helpful!

Delicious food and beer! Great serving of their famous Bavarian hotdog and the 'haus-made' chips. Waitresses were very friendly and service was great. The food was served on a wooden board and was surprisingly fast! Reasonable pricing for such a nice spot beside the water and the view of Manly Wharf was lovely. Mango bier was very nice, especially as... More

We enjoyed a very nice lunch and some excellent German beer. Nice relaxed atmosphere and very good service. The staff went out of their way to help with my wife's cousin who needed some help with seating arrangements. The view out over the Manly beach and esplanade was very picturesque, a nice cosmopolitan mix of sights.

Visiting family in Sydney and on the day of arrival went to Manley. Had a great steak with large salad, really enjoyed the meal. Some of the family had hot dogs, what a meal. Would recommend this place for the lovely location, food and certainly the service. Had a great German beer to help things flow!
