    Good quality food, especially the seafood, but antipasto plate seemed a bit small. Service was efficient. Shame the weather wasn’t better to really enjoy the waterfront location

    Hugo's is always a special night out. Everything about the place is beautifully balanced. The wine selection, the food and the staff are all excellent. We'll be back soon.

    I have had lunch at Hugos a number of times with business guests. Always consistently good service and food at a pretty reasonable price. Can't beat the setting either.

    As always Hugo's was reliable with good food and service and a superb setting even on a rainy day. The prices are a bit above the average but it never disappoints.

    I just love Hugo’s, when coming to Sydney we always travel to Manly to dine here. The reason for this is the incredible service, atmosphere and the amazing food. Yesterday we dined at Hugo’s for lunch and I was so disappointed with the service only, we were not offered desert menu or coffee, or even asked for more drinks! Maybe the service is not as good during the week as it is on a weekend. I will be back though as it is my most favourite place to eat .

    Food and service were good. We enjoyed the meal. However, the restaurant was so crowded. The tables are set so close to next table. We were lucky that we got a table in the corner, and had a bit of waterview. Overall, not bad experience.

    Amazing service and beautiful food. Really loved everything about it. The manager ensured we had any choice of table we wanted, offered my girlfriend sunglasses for the afternoon glare and served the delicious food super quickly. We’ll be back for many years to come
