“Always a place to go but has just gotten better...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

Jellyfish is one of thuse places which is a bit of a no brainer when looking for beachside lunch or dinner. Parking is great being at the fat north end of Manly beach and it's just across the road from the beach which is the only way to lunch be it summer or winter.

Tried the burger on this occasion and not disappointed. great flavour and not overwhelmed by too many soggy chips.

I've never been a fan of breakfast at Jellyfish but the coffee IS good. find breakfast a bit underwhelming considering what you CAN get around here for $20...

Regardsless... location, ambiance and service is always great so makes for a good experience.

“Consistently Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

We live locally and have a choice of cafe's but always go back to Jellyfish. The food is always fantastic, coffee good, the service great and they are the best with kids. I am never dissapointed whether it is breakfast or dinner. They offer a great menu for both adults and children, give the kids colouring in to do on arrival and ensure they always get the kids food out fast. And the cafe is large enough that the staff seem to be able to separate the families with kids from adults dining alone so everyone is happy. They often have a line up out the front on weekends but they take your name and it moves pretty fast and is definatly worth the wait.

“Great little place friendly service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Walk in one lunch time. Casual and friendly atmosphere. Well cooked fish based menu. Swordfish and chips particularly good. Risotto a bit overpriced for what it was. Lovely waitress.

“Consistently good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

I love Jellyfish. Far enough away from the tourists if you're a local and the food and service are always great. A Manly staple offering all day brekky options, a nice little tapas menu and some delicious cocktails.

Definately worth a visit if your in Manly. Was told by a few friends to go here and wasn't disappointed. Good service, well priced, would go back again.
