    Great fresh seafood cooked perfectly. Crab lasagne is always my favourite and nothing else out there can compare (order a side of chips or bread to soak up the sauce).

    The service was slow. It has been much better before. Certainly a decline

    I made a Christmas dinner reservation for Manta via the fork. There was some confusion initially because they lost our reservation... however this was quickly rectified. The staff were very attentive and friendly, very knowledgeable and lovely to deal with. The food was delicious and fresh (the prawn spaghetti with truffle is highly recommended). Everything was delightful and would certainly recommend dining here for a special occasion. The outdoor tables on a lovely warm evening are splendid. Thank you team!

    Beautiful fish as always and great service. Love the scallop entree, Murray cod and berry flavored mocktail. Menu is smaller due to covid but all fresh ingredients.

    My favourite restaurant in Sydney. Consistently good food & service, an extensive wine list in a sunny harbourside setting. What's not to like?!

    A superb Sydney restaurant with lots of regular diners and a great atmosphere. We were welcomed after a two week gap when we decided a return visit was a must. Excellent fish and shellfish selection, all prepared and served with imagination. We celebrated my partner's 70 th Birthday and enjoyed a truly memorable evening on 4th March. Manta will be a must on all future visits to Sydney. Thanks to the staff for a great welcome and super service.

    Great restaurant, with excellent service, tasty food and Sydney put on a magic lightning storm as a back drop. The menu is fairly extensive and will cover most tastes. Wine list abundant with choice, including wine by the Farr family of Geelong (their chardonnay was delicious). Will definitely return

    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.
