This is a good one in Northern beaches. We tried a few foods here and all were delicious, especially that Moroccan chicken and saffron. The structure of the the restaurant is also a bit different, so traditional and really beautiful.

On a rainy evening after having arrived in Manly with the help of a ferry, I found myself famished and wet. Lo and behold, as I was walking towards my friend's apartment I stumbled upon a white and gold sign that said "Out of Africa"....More

Nothing like a zoo or animal park. We are from Los Angeles and this was such an amazing experience....

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
