Had a 'take away' fish and chips from the Fish Shack. I was not disappointed, had a generous portion of chips and 2 battered fish steaks. Nice and tasty

No complaints about anything we ordered-the beer battered hoki and chips with sweet chili sauce and the grilled Atlantic salmon with a side salad. The salmon was cooked perfectly for me. My friends recommend the sweet chili sauce.

We ordered seafood platter and at $32.90 seemed reasonable, except only small pieces of fish, two oysters a prawn stick all covered in thick horrible batter. Try another cafe plenty to choose from on the strip

No doubt, there was an abundance of fish and chips in my take away, and where better to go than to sit right across the street to enjoy the beach, the waves, the surfers and the dusk? I'm 7000 miles away, and the taste and...More

Give this place a miss! Boasting the best fish and chips? Cold, greasy and over cooked. Cardboard comes to mind. And since when is a Caesar Salad a bowl of lettuce? Only paid for drinks and walked out! Straight to Manly Grill!

Don't bother eating in. Staff are all over the shop and very little experience by the looks of things - who brings entrees out at 10 mins after the main meal? Fish average at best - funnily enough the entrees are better than the mains....More

The prices were a little bit expensive but that's understandable considering its location. Good view of the beach along the strip. The food was fine, no problems there but wasn't spectacular either.

We ordered a fish and chips to go and went and ate it down by the beach, it was a nice snack for two to share. Only $12.90 for the Hoki with two large pieces of fish and lots of fries. This was a good...More

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
