    We were lucky to get an outside table - a few mozzies around though!! As the evening cooled a blanket would be a nice touch. What a fantastic location though.

    The food was great, great technique strong flavours however it's all been seen before. The dishes have been floating around Sydney for 20 years. The service was polite but nothing memorable. The wines by the glass had all been open too long. They had lost their acidity and zip. The atmosphere was good until the dj came on at 1.50 and started playing thumping duff duff music. A complete buzz kill for dining. It would be an awesome place to listen to a dj from 330 to 6pm looking out over the water drinking cocktails, or if it was a bar. But a bistro with such great food gets lost in the thumping bass. In a sea of great venues now on the northern beaches, this won't be back on the list this life time.

    A great alternative to the corso and main beach. Lovely setting with comfortable seating and harbour views. Loved the calamari and scallops in particular. Waiters courteous and patient. Highly recommend

    One of the best restaurants in Manly if not the best. View is wonderful with service to match. This is a family favourite for birthdays or just drinks to relax. My favourite meal is the pork belly but my daughter is a vegetarian and she is catered for as well. Or just grab an antipasto and a bottle of wine and watch the water. A beautiful way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

    Can't fault the Manly Pavilion. Beautiful setting, amazing service and the food is very very good. We had a Christmas Eve family lunch here and everyone loved their food and the overall experience.

    Great location, not noisy a big plus, but main course veal schnitzel was not to my taste very salty and seemed to be battered not crumbed, not a batter eater

    It’s a beautiful restaurant with an amazing view and food but seems that they were short of staff. Regards the acoustics the place is so noisy we could barely here across the table.

    A lovely spot to eat and drink the afternoon away with friends. Great sharing boards/platter option to start. Love the fact have choice of small or larger portion size for the pastas. Some great cocktail twists available. Would be good if the schnitzel came with some sides, rather than having to order all separately. The pavlova is devine - highly recommended!

    Awesome view, great food and service! Highly recommended for a Friday lunch venue. Food choices were fresh and well presented and they have a comprehensive drinks menu to compliment the food!

    This is our local! Blissful views and wonderful food. Go for the antipasto and grilled prawns followed by pavlova. We often just sit at the bar for dinner and watch the sunset and lights come out on the harbour.

This waterfront wonder has an unbeatable location oozing elegance, with contemporary décor and stunning views of the harbour.

The view speaks for itself, and the menu is equally appealing. Expect delicious Traditional Italian style dishes created by Tuscan executive chef Andrea, that range from Antipasti share plates to house made pasta's to sophisticated mains. Highlights include the delicious Gnudi di Ricotta (Spinach & Hastings Valley Ricotta Gnudi, Tomato Velouté, Fresh Basil) and the sensational Signature dish of Maialino Arrosto con Patate (Suckling Pig with Roast Potatoes).

They've also some great desserts that are just waiting to be sampled. Good luck to the person that tries to get between us and the Tiramisu!

Come and explore this stunning Sydney mainstay! Alfresco dining in the summer is spectacular with the relaxing sound of the water, views of the harbour and a great cocktail, wine list to choose from.

Best dishes:

Spaghetti allo Zafferano con Vongole e Bottarga Fresh Saffron Spaghetti with Vongole, Garlic, Chilli, Local Artisan Bottarga

Filetto di Manzo ai Funghi

Grain Fed Beef Eye Fillet, Polenta Taragna, Cavolo Nero, King Brown Mushrooms, Port Jus
