The food was spectacular. I had smashed avo, feta and poached eggs on toast. Their fruit juices were great. I had watermelon and my guest had the full mix of juice options and toasted banana bread. Service was great and they handled a very full restaurant really well. We didn't have long to wait for our food. Good value for... More

A great position along the beach front with friendly staff. We had a late breakfast here. The eggs in my Eggs Benedict were a bit under, with runny white, and service took a while but otherwise it was okay. It was fine, but with so many other great places to choose in Manly not sure I'd go back.

This Manly (North Steyne) classic offers meals all day. We enjoy weekly breakfast with many healthy options and good gluten free choices. Daily black board specials reflect sophisticated skills of the kitchen. Tapas style and a la carte gives huge variety. Licensed and BYO wine also means a family meal out can be good value. One of the best in... More

Came here with a bunch of friends for a delicious lunch! My friends said the mocktails were some of the best they'd ever had! Lovely location too

I ate here with my partner a few weeks back and was surprised at how good the food was. The place was jam packed being a Sunday I expected slow service but food came out quick, staff were attentive and prices were excellent, family and dog friendly. Will be back

What a lovely find this was. We went back 3 times. The food was excellent & staff great. All of the food was really good. The layout is cleverly placed to seat any number.

A very hospitable venue, with very friendly staff, who remember you. They understand that you need to order fast for kids, and get on with it immediately. They have a box of kids toys and books, and the layout allows the kids to move around and get toys without being in anyone's way. The menu is delicious, especially our favourite... More

The diminishing availability of BYO restaurants is compounded by many of those that do provide BYO, offer mediocre food. Not so at Jellyfish. We were there as part of a larger group. The food was very good across the board. And the service was friendly and efficient. And of course it's a great location.

First time went to this restaurant and it lives up to every positive review written about it. The location is just across from the beach, the menu is very good, caters for all tastes and the prices are reasonable. The food was very good, starting with the tapas then to the main course. The lamb was delicious and coupled with... More
