Last Fridays dinner:
If everyone is dressing for dinner? The waitress should slip out of her denim shorts and put on something more appropriate!
I am paying a considerable amount for cocktails, Please do not think the tide is out and give me 3/4 full drinks!
As much as I love and own dogs, Being seating next to 2 large poodle/moodle/strudel dogs is bazaar and probably against health regulations.
I hate having to pay for vegetables, they should be served with the meal, they are not an accoutrement, they are part of a meal and they should not be rock hard! If they state wok tossed on the menu? That's what they should be.
Service could and should be better, You know people are coming so you need to staff the floor accordingly.
The location is good and parking is pretty easy out the front.
The slow roasted lamb was lovely not amazing but very good.
The soft centred chocolate Belgian Pudding (fondant) was too runny, More of a raw batter than a lovely pudding with a soft chocolate oozing out.
The sticky fig was really good.
Overall it was a pleasant night with disappointing service and food that almost hit the mark.
Would I go back? Probably not, there are so many choices in Manly and why waste a night out for average.

We've had a lunch and dinner here whilst staying close by in manly but our dinner was absolutely fantastic. my wife had a lamb shank whilst i went for the seafood plate. the tastes were out of this world and certainly the best meal we've had during our month away from the UK. it was a little more expensive than we would usually go but well worth it and made cheaper by BYO alcohol. definetely recommend giving this restaurant a try.

I love Jellyfish. Far enough away from the tourists if you're a local and the food and service are always great. A Manly staple offering all day brekky options, a nice little tapas menu and some delicious cocktails.

Excellent food and service, good atmosphere.
Busy little place away from all the hustle and bustle in the centre of Manly.
Definitely worth a visit and we would go back again.
