Three of us traveled to Manly one night for a dinner overlooking the Pacific Ocean. My son had visited the Manly Grill before and highly recommended it. Our meals were all excellent including the appetizers. I had a Barramundi fillet grilled and it was excellent. We also ordered a filet steak and a King Crab Dinner. Both were very good... More

I had the kangaroo filet with sweet potato fries and a caesars salad. Even I wanted it well done, the chef did a great job with the sauce and it wasn't hard or unchewable. Tasteful and enjoyable, with a nice view.

We love Manly Grill, both as a family restaurant and as a place to go With friends. The restaurant is always very busy so I'd recommend book first. Meals are large and obviously meat oriented. Restaurants is situated on the beach front. Great for people watching if you can nab a table at the front!

Looking for something quick to eat and not expensive. Manly Grill on the front with oceans views fitted the bill. Food was simple, nothing flash, but it was only a beachside café and food was fresh and adequate for a day out at the beach. We just went for the fish and chips for $19.90 pp which consisted of lots... More

Nice little restaurant with a world class view. Excellent friendly service - the wait staff were really on the ball. There's out/inside tables. Plenty of choices on the menu and drinks list - we enjoyed a bucket of prawns, and smoked salmon on blinis, with creme fraiche. Wet serviettes were supplied with the prawns - nice little touch. Well worth... More

A work dinner. People arriving at different times. No problem. They changed how they rolled out the meals. All food was great and good value. Service was excellent. Happy to go back with a group.

The Manly Grill is one of the larger restaurants overlooking the beach at Manly and offers seating both inside and outside. We visited for Sunday lunch and managed to get a table without a reservation which might have been a little lucky. The restaurant is obviously popular and very busy. The menu is wide ranging with something for everyone, meat,... More
