We enjoy taking visitors from overseas for fabulous sunset drinks or dinners. High up looking out over the bay towards Sydney CBD. Nothing says it better why we choose life in Sydney

I was here for a function in their function room. It's absolutely beautiful and the most amazing outlook. The food is ok - too pricey though. But service is great. Not sure what the restaurant upstairs is like

This place trades on its location which is spectacular. Besides that the service was terrible, they charged $7 per person cake fee and surcharge 2.5% for Amex. Was so excited to be going there but won't be back after the 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
