We had a lovely waitress but the food wasn't as great as I was expecting. We enjoyed our dinner but not quite what we had imagined. Good selection of drinks.

Reviews claiming that the food here is authentic or in any way Spanish are clearly misguided and clearly have never eaten food in Spain. I should've trusted my instincts when I read the menu - very poor. Our waitress was perfectly pleasant though.More

Hi Matthew, I am sorry that you thought our food was absolute rubbish as this is very disappointing to hear when we take great pride in our menu with locally sourced, sustainable and ethically sourced ingredients. Many of our dishes I have eaten in different...More

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
