Didn't start so well with two beers and half the menu being unavailable. Pizza was pretty bland and a little undercooked. Worker dudes standing around talking rather than getting stuff organised. Needs a new manager.

Interesting/ funky inexpensive place for a quick bite across the street from the beach, Choice of seating includes coaches, at the bar, table, or a counter where you face the beach. Fish and Chips where quite good as was the pork, ham, cheese and pineapple sandwich. The best sweet potato fries.

Service was great, but our slow cooked pork sandwich was very disappointing. The pork was chewy and the very small sandwich contained no more than two very small pieces of pork with much too much condiment

We see this all too often in Sydney. Businesses in prime spots that get plenty of business from passing tourists so dont feel they have to excel at anything. The wait staff were miserable and we sat for 20 minutes before being served - it wasn't busy. Smashed Avo on toast ... My usual breakfast staple. This is the first... More

Can't say much about the day time business of this place, but it's a very cool place to have a light dinner and drinks. Awesome, laid back tiki vibe, great decor and great staff. The location is great with a view to the beach and excellent people watching spot due to the open front. The place has a great collection... More

Popped in for a quick lunch - I ordered the banana prawn and pineapple salad. Worst meal for a long time. Prawns were large but hadn't been de-veined - gross. Pineapple tasted like tinned stuff. I had to return it. Waitress very apologetic and took the price of my meal off the bill. Others in my party had a superfood... More

We arrived around 4.30pm and our wait informed us about tiki time, that runs from 5pm - 7pm mon - thur. $10 mai Tai and $5 tacos, what a bargain. Tacos came out looking fresh and colourful and wow they were... More

I have been searching for a cafe on the internet for pancakes. I finally found Sugar lounge on the net and it clearly stated they do brunch from 12pm - 4pm and they served pancakes. I was eager to try so my husband and i got there and the waitress said they don't serve pancakes nor do they do brunch.... More

This place was a few steps away from my hotel -- Novotel Manly. I loved everything about it! They have an impressive menu that has something for every kind of eater. The ambiance is relaxed, happy piped in music, friendly service. Eat facing the ocean .... it makes for a beautiful way to start the morning!! I can't wait to... More
