    The location is excellent. Looking out at the water in Woolloomooloo Bay with the city scape in view is just wonderful. The food is excellent. Today we shared braesola and then crab pasta for entrees. Main was a whole grilled flathead with rocket salad on the side. Service and food are great.

    Best tasting menu for us. Because it was mainly seafood, no meat and no carb, so we didn’t feel too overeaten when we finished. The wine menu was excellent too.

    Great location and always exceptional staff. We had barramundi with crispy skin, Murray salt chips and beetroot with mandarin ( which was a small serve if sharing) Barossa Grenache was crisp and dry. Hard to fault and a favourite choice for lunch as never disappoints.

    Great to be back. Food and service still as good as it gets. Unfortunately, my Maui Jim’s from a previous birthday party could not be found, but all concerned tried their best. Best food and service on the Wharf. These are good people who will look after you. Graham Gardner

    the food menu is interesting. The crab lasagne entre is very good. lots of hot spices/peppers which i donot like particularly with seafood, but they left that out. choc fondant dessert is world class.. worth the trip! Wine menu extensive, but a bit light on italian wines. Caviar on menu looked good too!

    A Saturday lunch, Manta has a great position on Finger Wharf looking out at the boats. We sat outside, well laid out. Service was excellent and very attentive. For starters had the raw fish selection and octopus all well prepared. Followed by Toothfish, Barramundi, John Dory all nicely cooked. No issues.
