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

Good location just in front of Manly Beach. Very friendly staff available to help you with your needs. Quick service and polite people with reasonable price for the food and drinks.

Brunch is always a favourite, this restaurant is in a lovely location with great food but as it is one of the most expensive big breakfasts in Manly their maintenance is appalling. Exposed electrical wiring on one wall pool hidden by a trolley, scuff marks on the fixed seating and the toilets are just a disgrace, clean at least.

I was treated horribly by the staff. Very rude, zero customer service skills. Toilet has run out of toilet paper and after being ignored by the staff for a long time, I was humiliatingly interrogated three times just to prove that I was a customer there before they placed "thick, brown, dining napkins" in the cubicle as toilet paper replacement....

Ate brunch in a sunny spot with 2 children and we all decided on pancakes which were very thick and well-syruped (?) With yum fruit compote and good coffee- what more could I want? Friendly staff and seating to enjoy people watching! However, bill had an item I never ordered and kid's meals $2 more than menu in front of... More

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
