    There was a nice vibe down on the water at Hugos! The food was very nice, and drinks were delicious. The staff were very helpful and made sure we were looked after. Great for a group of friends/family!

    Hugos is hands down the best place in Manly for great food, excellent service, and a truly amazing atmosphere ...and you can throw in the beautiful setting on the water (with devine sunsets) for good measure. A special mention to Matt (head barman) who makes sensational cocktails! ????

    Great views, really nice to relax and really good food. Felt like we were being pushed to decide on dessert and it was Thursday late lunch at 3pm. Plenty of free tables for others

    My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our first time at Hugos. The atmosphere was bright and buzzing but not too loud, the service was impeccable, food delicious, and the views are amazing. Our waitress was super friendly and helpful. I'll definitely return.

    We had dinner at sunset and it was stunning, the best sunset over the water view. The food was delicious too, I cannot wait to come back. It’s a great place to bring visitors in Sydney!
