Popped in for brunch on a busy Sunday. Had yummy Zucchini fritters- delicious. Other half chose Pancakes and said they were good. Service was up and down but overall good. Atmosphere was great, a good spot to people watch.

Lovely bar / restaurant overlooking Manly main beach. We had an afternoon snack and a drink. King Prawn Tempura was fab. Plenty of prawns , piping hot. Reasonable priced.

I have been to the Sugar Lounge twice and both times encountered overcharging on the bill. The first time I discovered we had an extra breakfast on the bill and was able to return a few minutes later for a refund. Today I was in a hurry and did not immediately notice three extra items on the bill we did... More

Kieran & the crew have the best cocktails in Manly hands down! If you are after a beachside tiki bar with great bar bites this one is for you. Aloha

Our food was tasty, but we thought was pretty poor value. Amongst our order were some fish tacos. There were two tacos per serve, and each taco featured a small, solitary piece of fried fish covering a tiny area of the taco. Tasty, but oh so disappointing...

We found the food & drinks menus a bit too busy. When we asked for variations to the menu, it was difficult. Atmosphere & location were great. Staff were friendly but confusing at times, especially when we had at least four different staff take & deliver our orders. Regardless, iconic and unique restaurant / bar. Would go back.

We didn't eat there but just popped in for coffee. I had my first iced coffee, which was lovely. The staff were very pleasant and the location is great as it is just across the road from the beach.

Super chilled out atmosphere. Great music and staff. We had a few mojitos whilst overlooking Manly beach. Great spot for a drink with friends.

Staying in Manly

Neighborhood Profile
A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is a great way to experience Sydney Harbor Bay and the Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.
