With a choice of three adjacent restaurants, and the obvious competition between them, we chose the busy one. We couldn't have been more wrong. From the grumpy server, to the terrible fish of the day and the noise the whole experience was disappointing. The FOD...More

I hadn't been to Jellyfish before and was very pleased with every aspect of our visit as while there is tight competition on the Steyne strip it's a place ripe for a tourist trap. It's was good cafe food with quick, friendly service on the...More

First off, we went at a very busy time. Secondly we were warned that there was a delay in the kitchen. With those 2 things said however waiting almost an hour for food on a lunchtime is unacceptable. There were lots of staff walking around...More

I must have reviewed Jellyfish 8/9 times over the years and have always sung its praises but this visit for dinner was very dissapointing. I do hope it's just a one-off blip but all the signs pointed towards a change of management. I have never...More

On a friend’s recommendation we took the ferry from CircularQuay to Manly and strolled along the broad walk for 15 minutes to the restaurant. A mixed menu (I had sesame salmon then the Thai curry) with very good food and very helpful and attentive staff.

Fantastic service and great food, lamb shoulder was superb, seafood linguine awesome, and kids fish and chips was perfect. Love this restaurant just has a really good vibe very busy but just so good and fresh.

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
