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.

With just a few days notice I easily made a booking by phone for a Sunday lunch for 10 people at the Jellyfish Cafe . Not an easy task in Manly. Warm greeting on arrival with a long table set up undercover at the front of the restaurant. The menu was expansive and was able to cater for both the... More
