    I think they need to find a new way to take orders. The music was so loud the guy taking my order clearly couldn’t hear my order so ended up getting it wrong. I’m ok with loud music (I’d go somewhere else if I wasn’t) but they need to automate the order system. They were great when I realised there was an error but it meant half the table had finished their meal by the time the other half meals arrived.

    The two others had the bottomless chicken wings which was a great success, I had the poke bowl which I personally thought was average. But the atmosphere was great

    Went to Daniel San for the cherry blossom festival. It was really nicely set up, and the limited edition menu looked really cool. Unfortunately we were seated in the area where there was no cherry blossom set up which was a little disappointing as that’s the reason we had booked for our group of 6. The food is alright, it’s not authentic Japanese cuisine, but it was visually appealing and tasty. Another thing to note was that the service was strange - drinks and food are to be ordered from the counter but no one informed us. Additionally, when our drinks were ready, we didn’t know it was pick up as if you were at a local pub/club. So the staff came and pointed out that out drinks had been sitting at the counter waiting for us. I think staff may need to ask if we have been before, and if it’s our first time to point out that it’s order from the counter and pick up drinks up front. Not a bad a experience, but not the most seamless. Would recommend if you’re looking for a cute/pretty lunch set up - mention in your booking that you want to be located under the cherry blossoms!

    Great atmosphere with good music and open seating, PITY they gave us a dud voucher!! Food was great and wait staff were very efficient & friendly in removing finished sharing plates. Only gripe was they gave us a Father’s Day drink voucher which said it was for beer, wine or soft drink but when my hubby ordered a house red, the voucher was only available for beer. He’s gluten free which means he can’t have beer and they wouldn’t a offer a soft drink or apple cider as an alternative. Pretty lame given we were there for his Father’s Day lunch and our table bill was more than $150 for 2 adults and 3 kids under 7. Given we are locals, this left us with a bad taste of the place. It’s a shame it didn’t cost much to give a free drink and we paid for the wine anyway!

    Great experience as we went with my daughter and her friends. The food was fantastic and reasonably priced for Manly. Staff were very friendly and informative and made our first time experience very enjoyable. Will definitely go back again.

    Food is excellent. However the little things like having the tables cleaned and high chairs with straps that work and enough cutlery should not be happening. View is obviously great but the service and energy of staff was underwhelming. Pls fix these little things

    Nice location but the food was a bit disappointing - generally things were over-sauced and this detracted from the otherwise potentially delicious food hiding underneath

    We booked a table and when we arrived we were told to 'just sit anywhere' the staff got our order wrong twice and were disinterested in serving us. The food was great as always, but the service was really disappointing and rude in my opinion. I have been to Daniel Sans 3 times and this was the worst service by far.

    Love the atmosphere there and the food was delicious! Particularly the KFC and the Large Sashimi. I also love the cocktails there. Bar service was easy and the cocktails didn’t take too long.

    Food was fantastic! Good atmosphere. Just hate sitting on tall bar stools with no back support. More tables and chairs for the oldies!

    I waited an hour to get my food. Then I got the wrong one. Then they had to cook the fish and had to wait another 15monutes. My husband ordered a meal and got the wrong one also as they didn’t have any left. I probably wouldn’t recommend this restaurant. However they did compensate us with free drinks and only paying for one meal.

About the restaurant

Mr San will see you now...

Combine a Japanese gaming arcade, a hard core rock and roll bar and a beachside bungalow and that’s an indication of the craziness that is Daniel San. This restaurant is a bit of an all rounder which can transform and reinvent itself depending on what is required. Daniels San’s Japanese street food is fresh, unique, fun – and above all, totally delicious. And better still, everything’s served with a spectacular beachside view. Whether you're popping in for a snack or lingering from day to night you can gaze while you graze.

Best dish: sushi boat.
