The sparkling waters of the harbour are the backdrop to your meal at Manta Restaurant and Bar.

There are little things as captivating as the glistening Sydney harbour, and there’s no finer way to appreciate it than by indulging at Manta. Here, the dining room opens right up to the iconic Woolloomooloo wharf, allowing you the ultimate in the harbour and people-watching pleasure—that’s if you can tear your eyes away from the striking culinary creations on your plate.

Executive chef Daniel Hughes and Head Chef Steve Hetherington have put together a menu featuring the finest seasonal seafood dishes. Grass and grain-fed beef are also popular choices, with meals sourced from only the best Australian farmers.

Manta also stocks a variety of current and aged wines, some from well-known vineyards and others from boutique producers you’ll soon know and love.

The food was absolutely amazing! We ordered the Tasting Menu and every single dish was devine! So fresh and so tasty! Not to mention a lovely atmosphere sitting outside while the sun went down. I highly recommend Manta!

Faultless Fish!
Could not have asked for a better meal with friends. Service from our waitress was amazing, I have rudley forgotten her name but it was a lady from the south of England, london/brighton possible. She deserves a mention, thank you for the laughs and chats.
The food was everything and more, we had the raw platter to start/share, the natural oysters and the baked. The fried king prawn was the best looking thing i have ever seen and tasted in my life! Huge meaty tasty prawn.
We also had a half shell scallop too.
Mains were tough to decide as every plate that passed us on the way to its table threw a spanner in the works and made the four of us change our mind again.
We decided on picking a few and sharing as the decision was too difficult. I chose the rainbow trout which was beautiful. The steak was the perfect piece of meat- cooked to perfection. My favourite was the barramundi! I will be rushing back for.
The angel fries are a must have edition to the table along with the steamed greens.
The most polite young french man tended to our table to ensure that our glass was always full.
A superb evening at a gem of a restaurant with amazing views.

Really enjoyed the crumbed Whiting and the Miso Toothfish. It was nice to sit outdoors for lunch and look out over the wharf.

Environment and food was good. Service was good too except for the fact that they cleaned the table while we were still munching on the chips.
