Everyone’s favourite part of the festival, food. Come by and support local restaurant’s as they deliver mouthwatering dishes. Here’s a little nibble of what you can expect this weekend:

Hugos Manly: Manly’s local gem, Hugos’ Manly offers home-style Italian cuisine for all you pizza lovers (They’ve won Best Pizza restaurant in Australia multiple times…)

Daniel San: Already a familiar face on Manly’s beachside front, Daniel San is the coolest restaurant on the block. Putting the twist in Japanese food, their festival menu is made with enticing choices such as chicken Yakitori and a smoked beef dish called ‘Mr Miyagi’.

The Bavarian: The perfect cuisine for the not-so-ill hearted, The Bavarian packs a punch with German classics. Be prepared for a food coma with their chilli wagyu dog, buffalo wings and roast pork belly roll. Want to dine in the true Bavarian way? Have a cheeky beer or two.

Mex & Co: With food full of flavour, you cannot miss out Mex & Co’s famous nachos! Salivate over corn chips filled with melted cheese, jalapeño slices, pica de gallo salsa, source cream and homemade gucamole. If that’s nacho type of thing, they always have the classic tacos!

Wait, there’s more… expect more deliciousness from The Herring room, The Hot Dog Man, Ruby Lane, Manly Grill, Hotel Steyne, Fish Shack, Manly Wine, Maestro & Co and more!
