    Beautiful setting and service was terrific at the beginning. It was never bad service, just lacking towards the tail end of our night. The food was fresh and thoroughly enjoyable. I will definitely return.

    Manta is my favourite restaurant in Sydney. The food is always top quality as is the service, topped off by the picturesque harbour-side setting.

    As always extraordinary oysters—Pambula and Merimbula are the absolute best! The crab lasagna is delicious; and the selection of French and Italian wines impressive.

    Great location for a casual dinner on Boxing Day after a day on the harbour. Freshly shucked oysters (four different varieties),platter of raw kingfish, scampi and scollop ceviche and a bowl of spammer crab pasta. Doesn’t get any better than that. And off course something from the excellent wine list. Put on your list of must does.

    Great food, excellent professional service in an alfresco setting on the water. Manta is a favourite of ours and never fails to deliver. Try the oysters, scampi and toothfish if you love seafood.

    Food was really nice but the service was not great. "Ready yet" were the first words out of the waitresses mouth. Then she proceeded to hover until we placed our order. When the Veuve is $27 by the glass, the waiter really shouldn't clear the table and take 1/2 a glass with him. A dinner for 2 at $337, look elsewhere

    The staff at Manta were extremely welcoming and helpful. The food was excellent as always when I’ve dined there, and the portions generous. Love the location at Woolloomooloo wharf.

    Blue swimmer crab lasagna was delicious as per previous reviews. The kaffir lime pannacotta was also great. Did make a request for a birthday message to be put on dessert but this didn’t happen

    The food quality was ok but not what you expect for the price paid. Portions are really small and takes a very long time for the meal to arrive.

    I had the barramundi and it was cooked to perfection! The team were also very accommodating in finding us a table outside too. Love coming here!

    Manta was a superb experience. Great views of the water and the city. Welcomed to our seats in a warm manner. Food was exceptional and good portions. Would definitely recommend it to couples, families, or for a corporate meal. 10/10 would eat again
