Pork ribs were excellent and with the fries and salad it was a thoroughly enjoyable meal. Tuna steak with fries and salad was also very nice my husband confirmed. Great location on the esplanade. Very busy and noisy. Staff Very friendly.

We went to the Manly Grill after reading from this great comments on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately we were not as happy as we expected. The staff was ok. But our dishes were really not good. We ordered for times the filet and three dishes were not right from the cooked level. This is really not okay for a steakhouse. The staff... More

I drive from Bathurst 2-3 times each year just to eat here and at Hugos. They are equally my favourite restaurants of all time.

Dined here with a couple of friends. We ordered the surf n turf, yellowfin tuna and chicken Caesar salads. The surf n turf was absolutely incredible! The steak melted in your mouth. Only let down was the number of prawns that came with it. 3 prawns. Maybe a few more would have made this meal even better. The tuna was... More

Been here once before so we knew it was good. The Ribs are excellent, the place is always busy however the service is erratic, the lights are so low its hard to see the menu. The candles on each table are LED so sit closer to the front of your eyes are not so good. Toilets dirty both male and... More

We went to the grill just after the lunch once the rush which was great because the place was a lot emptier which meant we got served a lot quicker. The selection of food was very good and the quality was excellent.

A group of three, we were fortunate enough to get a table on the front line without booking. As a mix of meat eaters and non meat eaters we were happy to choose the regular burger as well as the veggie burger. All were served with a pickle and French fries and were good. Service was excellent, a bottle of... More

I had never tried Kangaroo steak before, but without a doubt, the Kangaroo steak that I had here is the best steak that I have ever had. I had mine how it is normally offered, medium rare with no extra sauces. The steak was very juicy.

It was New Year's Day when we went, so it was very crowded, which was to be expected. We were found a table for lunch, but it had to be inside. Service was excellent given the numbers in the restaurant. The food was average only. The crab cakes "special" didn't taste much like crab. The beer-battered fish with chips was... More

Staying in Manly

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Harbour 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 as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.
