    Great location, food and service to match. This is our second visit for lunch during our 3 week holidays and we agree this in the best restaurant we have visited. Ocean trout was amazing, so fresh and lite. Perfect location to watch the world go by over a bottle of wine on a summers day. Great experience will be back next time we in Sydney. Well done team Hugos.

    Delicious meal in an unbeatable spot - sit and take in the view. Service was faultless, attentive but not intrusive. Good selection on the kids menu. Highly recommend.

    Really enjoyed our meals and drinks at Hugo's. The atmosphere and venue is great. Only complaint is that the waitress never came back to take our dessert order so we paid up and left without having it.

    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.
