Dropped into Jellyfish cafe for lunch & ordered a lovely fresh salad 🥗 & coffee. Both were excellent. The cafe is located across the road from North Steyne Surf Club . The decor is fresh , warm & casual which makes an ideal place for a relaxing lunch or breakfast. Overall - casual relaxing cafe with excellent staff.

This beachfront cafe was just a short walk from or hotel on Manly Beach. Recommended by one of the staff at the Novotel we were drawn to the prospect of a "very good seafood menu" and open until 11pm. Indeed, it was more than we had hoped for with so many choices. We settled on the roasted field mushrooms (stuffed... More

As a Northern Beaches resident, I'm a bit fancy when it comes to a good service. JellyFish doesn't just serve a good food at fair price as the staff service it's just EXCELLENT. I feel so welcome every time I walk in and they have my family and I with a big smile. I would like to emphasise the manager... More

We went Easter Sunday as a family of four. The service was first-class from a very nice, casual waiter. He was extremely thoughtful and attentive. The food came out at excellent intervals, we never felt rushed or like we were waiting. The quality of the food was amazing, better than any other place in Manly. We are locals and have... More

Whenever I go to Manley I make jellyfish my place for breakfast. I always have the same food as it's so good. The eggs benedict is beautifully cooked and their coffee is the perfect pick me up. It gets very busy so service can be a bit slow to place your order but food comes quickly after. It's also quite... More

I've had 2 oustanding meals here. The Lamb shoulder (Scrumptious ) & their Barramundi . I found the Barramundi expertly cooked but the sauce which included Chorizo & calamari a bit spicy for me. However my dining companion found it perfect. I'd highly recommend this restaurant as everything is delicious & best cappuccino by far in Sydney. I'll be back... More

Visited Manly on business with a group, found this place for breakfast. Had an omelet, very well presented and tasty. The coffee was good and the service quick. Good effort, Jellyfish

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.
