“A forty minute wait at a bistro? ?”
Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

We canceled our order after being advised at least a forty minute wait. Bar service was very slow and we thought the menu was pretty pricey too.

“Awesome $10 steaks and magnificent views”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

You can't go wrong with a $10 steak for lunch (comes with chips/mash and salad/veggies)! Cooked quite nicely and fairly quick.

Also head to the roof top to enjoy the sea views on a sunny day.

“Good place for a beer & light lunch”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We ended up here after a day of walking around - had to be instructed as to the food ordering instructions (not from the bar) and the separate drink ordering (at the bar). Had to pick up our own food. Food was not bad (chicken salads). Restrooms are in a very dark corner downstairs. Wasn't a bad experience but nothing worth remembering.

“Do not go here!”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

As a Manly local went here today for chilled Sunday lunch. First experience was the glasses that the drinks came out had a sticky red substance all over them and hadn't been washed properly. After waiting a while for food we watch some groups around us start complaining to staff, turns out they had been waiting forever for their food and when it finally arrived the fish was still partly frozen. They were given 50% off their meal. Another group's parking metre had run out by the time their food arrived, they'd waited an hour and a half!!

After an hour of waiting for our meal we asked when it would be arriving...it took another 15 mins to get possibly the worst meal you could get anywhere in Manly! All up 75 mins waiting for the worst meal possible! Staff were unhelpful and wouldn't ever bother stepping foot back in there ever again.
