We are tourists from Germany and stayed in Manly for 6 nights. By chance we dropped into the Jellyfish on the first evening and came back for breakfast nearly every day and three times for dinner. All we had was very fresh, tasty and also quite creative. I would love to have such a great place around the corner Back... More

Stopped here for lunch, while taking a walk along the promenade. Nice little, casual place overlooking the beach. The menu had a good selection to choose from and the quality of the food was good for the price. Looking around at other tables with plate envy, all of the dishes looked tastey and good portions. Service was also good, with... More

We bought a voucher for 4 people to dine in Jelly Fish Café Manly Sat 7 June. The food was excellent and the service was great. What really impressed us was the quality and quantity of food. Unlike some other restaurants which do discriminate people who use vouchers, Jellyfish's choice was great. We basically were allowed to choose any main... More

We had a wonderful lunch here. The chicken panini was one of the best I have ever had. We just wandered upon this cute cafe on Manly Beach and were very pleased that we found it. The staff was friendly with good service. The food was delicious.

We have eaten here for dinner a couple of times and found the food pretty good keeping in mind that it is a cafe not a five star restaurant. Things have changed. Last night we had served to us what can only be described as slop. Clearly the kitchen staff have changed and they clearly have no clue how to... More

Had dinner there as it was just next door of my hotel/appartment. Service was friendly and attentive. Had some pasta with shrimps and it was excellent. Price was okay for a restaurant at the beach.

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...

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... More
