“Wonderful wine, wonderful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

A great spot to enjoy either a wine from around the world or a fabulous cocktail. Fabulous interior & indoor outdoor flow.
Share plate food sensational! A must see in Manly for lunch or dinner. Great for groups or for a wine with a friend.

“Not worth the trouble”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

It was very busy when we went, had tried to book but told they only take bookings for 50% of establishment but advised to be there by 6.30 and would have no trouble getting a table. The male host who greeted us was rude and dismissive. Told he MIGHT be able to give us a table at 9pm whilst looking us up and down. Really?! We went to bar but couldn't get service so left. My advice to everyone is go elsewhere, even if food and atmosphere is good, the service is snobby and non existent.

“My daughter said"I forgot what it's like eating real food"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Situated right on Manly beach, we stopped for a glass of wine and wound up having a snack. I was coming off a 16 hour flight and a full day in Sydney, so I had a very light meal of crab toast-big chunks of crab, nicely done. My daughter had the chicken and avocado salad , which was good enough to have this picky eater practically inhale it. She said the chicken had a faint Indian flavor, and whatever the dressing was, it complemented the chicken nicely. Service was unobtrusive and efficient, and of course the big draw was the location with the ocean not 100 yards away.

“Great food and beautiful view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Went there with a group of people recently and ended up having a really great time.

The interior is very vibrant and different to what you are used to, with sculptures of birds, big cage area inside which there is a seating area, very spacious overall having this tropical feel to it, and ohhh...the view is almost unobstructed through the big windows...The wall seats are made like a lounge and there is plenty of cushions around to make yourself comfy.

Believe it or not though, it was the food that I was most impressed with, could not fault it. Perfect steak, sooo tasty, and the brownie....to die for...You seriously haven't tried a brownie until you have eaten this one! I mean it!

I only thought that service was a little bit of a let down in the sense that we had so many different people serve us, and not just one that was allocated to our table...Nevertheless, the food came out quickly and they brought all the orders correctly.

It is tiny bit pricey, but then you'd expect that in Manly...

The place plays music in the background, and even when it gets packed, it is not hard to talk at the table, we could hear each other and carry on the conversation very well.

Overall, will definitely be going back!

“Monday Night is Steak Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Double Steaks are served on Monday nights. The service was fantastic! As soon as we had finished our first steak the second arrived - both tender and tasty. Great quirky atmosphere.
