Beer battered Hoki & chips. Doubt it was Hoki. Overcooked fish, dry & barely there between burnt & greasy batter. Same with so called beer battered prawn cutlets & chips. We asked for a split bill as we ordered, got a combined bill of $43.80,...More

I will not advice to go to eat a Fish Shack. Even if the location is great, the service is really bad. The waiter was not smiling, I had to ask him 3 times to bring some water to the table. Regarding the food, it...More

McDonald’s has better food. Burgers were not fresh. Fish tasted like a foot. No good customer service whatsoever. We told them that the food was bad and they didn’t want to do anything about it.

Stopped off for fish and chips while at Manly Beach...very good fish...definitely. Service was OK...waiter was a bit quiet and reserved but still provided good service. Prices were good and I had a table overlooking the ocean...great view!

It is a glorified fish and chip shop on the seafront. The fishburger was well filled and tasted good. My wife's salad was "OK but not special" Zero atmosphere. A place to get some reasonably priced food but not an eating out experience.

My girlfriend ordered the mussels which were cooked well but had a bland sauce and hadn’t been debearded. I ordered the barramundi fish and chips which was way over cooked and dry. The waiter was indifferent and borderline rude. We don’t recommend...

Reasonable fish & chips. Pretty good service & reasonably priced. Choice of local Australian sourced Snapper Barramundi. Hoki from NZ & Hake from South Africa REALLY? Being an island nation you would think all fish would be sourced from Australia to help the local seafood...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
