Love the Bavarian. Right next to the ferry. A great size bar you can sit in or outside. Also does food. Staff were great and gave kids pens and colouring. Great fun- to order shots - you get a ringing cowbell to announce there arrival!!

The BBQ sauce you get is spicy but I love it!!! They do serve German beer and dishes so we also went and got the... More

Christmas Day at one of the few places that were open in Manly so you would expect it to be busy however it was manic ! They had taken far more reservations than they could handle & were allowing people in for drinks to make matters worse. The service was shocking, we had to prompt them many times for orders... More

This place is always busy with locals and tourists. The food was usually good but we come here for German specialty of beer. Especially in December it is a great site when a snow is replaced by a sandy beach. Wonderful relaxing place!

This place has everything you can ask for! Big meals, big beers, perfect view on the corner of the famous wharf, waitresses are so sweet and traditionally dressed, service is fast!! Make sure you ask for a BUTTERSCOTCH SNAPPS. You will get a surprise.... I'm there every visit every year from Alice. Enjoy :)

Popped in for lunch after a spur of the moment trip on the Manly ferry. There were other cheaper options on the wharf and further down towards the beach, but I was after a quick meal. It would have been nice to sit outside and watch the activity on the harbour, but the tables all seemed to be reserved, although... More

One of my favorite spots EVER! This beautifully done restaurant/beer house is nestled right in manly wharf with glistening sunrays off the water and a light salty breeze by day, grab a cocktail or stein as the sun sets and in the evening the fireplace comes on offering a toasty scent along with flavours beyond good with the many traditional...

having passed this place several times during our week, we actually took breakfast there despite the attire of the waitress ( german style shorts etc) we enjoyed a good breakfast. the hot cake stack was huge and obviously home made - the breakfast in a skillet looked amazing. great place to sit for a while and watch the boats at...

We had a beer whilst waiting for the ferry back to Sydney. The bar is situated next to the jetty with views of the beach. Great view and nice beer!

Wonderful location, great staff & great food. Thankyou to the staff as we were running late & even though they were busy they kindly held our table. Very fun vibe & it was a great place to take our staff for our Xmas celebration
