The verdict

Manly Pavilion is waterfront dining at its best—sitting on the wharf side of one of Australia's most iconic beaches and uninterrupted views allllll the way to the heads. Manly Pavilion is the perfect place for afternoon aperitifs as the sun begins to set, a long Sunday brunch or your next big event. Oh, and did we mention the view? Because it’s damn good.

In 2016, the venue underwent a substantial revamp, restoring a lot of its original heritage appeal. Boasting a sleek dining space, an open-air balcony and elegant lounge bar, the venue characterises old world charm and offers an abundance of choice for diners with their modern Italian fare.

Head Chef Andrea Corsi is fresh on the scene at Manly Pavilion and he’s brought all that he learned growing up in Tuscany, plus years of experience on Sydney’s fine dining scene with him—and the result is more than a little bit delicious. We have many top picks on his menu, each made better by the addition of wine (obviously), but one must order is the gnocchi. Pillowy soft potato gnocchi is topped with a rich pork ragu and ricotta—you’ll have polished off the plate in two minutes flat. 

We suggest you head here for an early lunch, ease into things with a coffee before quickly transitioning into an Italian lunch feast and then topping it all off with an espresso martini as the sun sets.
