“Suckling pig”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

Pilu overlooks the ocean, Sicilian food, good service, amazing wine list. We'd normally have a pasta dish as not big meat eaters. But we decided on the slow roasted suckling pig. And it was fantastic, tender, fell apart. Coupled with a great red wine and the view, really memorable. Only criticism is the Sicilian folk music in the background, was repeated over and over and over, not relaxing to eat to. But that's a personal opinion. Certainly worth booking. After lunch walk back along coast back to Manly Beach. Just lovely.

“exceptional food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The chefs here really know what they are doing. The food is devine. The wait staff are great, with an amazing cellar, of wines to choose from.
Go either for lunch or early dinner to take in the spectacular beach view. You won't be disappointed here.

I attended a day wedding here! Amazing food, incredible atmosphere and view over Freshwater Beach. I'd love to go back for a romantic meal next time I'm in Sydney:)

The views and food are both wonderful. Try the amazing suckling pig with the best crackling ever! An extensive wine list and amazing desserts. A great restaurant for a special occasion.
