Well we definitely felt like we were using a coupon. You tend to get treated a bit differently. When we arrived we were offered a table right at the front door in a cold night. I asked if we could sit near a heater as it was cold. The pork belly was really fatty, always thought the fat was supposed... More

Jellyfish cafe is an excellent venue for a relaxed meal. Breakfast choices are to die for & appeal to all age groups. Lunch is always delicious, try the salad of beetroot, walnuts, cheese, leaves & wonderful dressing. Perfect position on Manly front to watch the world go by!

Located right opposite the beach, Jellyfish was a perfect location for a work group dinner in Manly. With 14 of us to feed, the food came out hot and fresh, and tasted amazing! Though it took a while to get our food, for a group our size it was understandable. Dealing with the cafe prior to our night out was... More

We stay at nearby apartments once or twice a year for the long weekend and have tried out the 3 cafes that are in this block. Of these, Jellyfish is definitely the pick of the bunch. This time I had pancakes on one visit and eggs benedict with salmon on the other. Both times I had a hot chocolate. The... More

If you are looking for a restaurant right in front of Manly Beach but removed from the crowds of The Corso, this is a good option. The menu is quite small but food is tasty, service is good and prices are reasonable. Restaurant is BYO.

With a young family we found ourselves out on scooters, skateboarding & walking the beachfront just about every day and Jellyfish was just enough out of the hustle & bustle of... More

We had dinner for 2. Two courses with plenty of drinks came to about A$150, which seemed very reasonable. The restaurant opens out on to the road along the beautiful beach in Manly. It's pleasant rather than smart, which perfectly suits the location. The menu is quite large and the food takes a while to arrive, but again this suits... More
