    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

    Been to this restaurant a number of times and never disappointed each time. Presentation of dishes are superb. Hoping the fork will continue to give out offers.

    Great food overlooking a great view. Been a few times and really enjoyed it. Definitely go back again. It's one of the best seafood restaurants in the eastern suburbs in my humble opinion.

    Awesome love the food and the service is fantastic. As I say in all of my Manta a reviews, the wine prices are legend could finance a whole new neighborhood, buy a cruise ship, fly to the moon, lots of things but cant afford a bottle of vino.

    The food is good but overpriced for what you get. Portions are getting smaller Service is always attentive until you want the bill then you cannot get anyone’s attention.

    Beautiful seafood and succulent fish, sauces were made to perfection. Service very professional despite it being very busy at the time of my visit.

    Went on a Fork promotion which made this restaurant a great deal. Gorgeous location sitting on the pier looking across to the city lights. Plates were delicious and the shared raw entree a standout dish. Sadly our waiter was absent most of the time when water or service was needed. That said a young lady came to our rescue and continued to meet our needs for water despite her being attached to a different part of the restaurant where a large party were dining. Our wine was also whisked away by the first waiter and set away from our table. I rescued it as we would have waited on long time for our glasses to be refilled had we relied on his attention. Despite the slap dash attitude of our first waiter the occasion and food were delightful. Shame in a restaurant of that calibre that a service staff member should be so unprofessional.

    this was our first time and I want to go back today. The food was the best I have had in a long time. The service was incredible as we had a short time to eat as we were going to the theatre. I truly recommend this restaurant ... The lobster sliders are a MUST
