“If only Hugos would update the menu and wine list”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Good atmosphere although a little dark. Hate having to use an iphone to light the menu. Can be excessively noisy especially if dining after 8.30pm. Service efficient and friendly. Food always fairly good, but the menu hasn't changed much since they opened years ago, so it feels like the same old same old. I really like Hugos and if only they updated the menu I would be there much more often.

“Poshy but a tad cold”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

The view is stunning, it's a good place to catch the vibe of Manly but because it had such good publicity, sometimes the service could be a bit pretended. The snobbishness of some wait staff left little to be desired for... someone need to remind them they aren't Rockpool.

“Great Pizza, but pricey.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Came here for dinner with friends on a rainy (Sydney) winter evening after work. Glad we had made a booking as it seemed completely booked out when we arrived at 7pm. Good location and atmosphere but a bit loud and only a small table for the three of us, also very close to table next to us. Food (I had the ham pizza) was delicious and they offered gluten free pizza bases, which was great. The angel hair pasta looked good but the portion seemed a bit too small. We had a good evening but moved on after eating our meals, as the meals and one bottle of wine were already quite expensive.

“Like a breathe of fresh air 'A Must Go Here'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

After a going to a very disappointing Italian Rest in the Corso Manly, going to Hugo's was amazing. On entering, the atmosphere was fabulous, ambient, low lighting, welcoming. Staff were immediately attentive and friendly, taken to our seat the waiter brought chilled water in crystal clean glasses. We ordered Pizza's just because but noticed all other meals very generously portioned and looked fabulous. Our pizza's were outstanding and the pear and rocket salad was crisp, fresh and flavoursome. Staff were attentive and couldn't do enough for us. Meals came quick and place could not be faulted. 10 our of 10. Will definitely come again when next in Manly.

“Pricey but good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Had lunch here after having been recommended by lonely planet. As every restaurant in Sydney, was quite pricey. had a pizza and a salad, at the end turned out to be 40 dollars. Maybe it was also the price you pay for the harbor view.
