The food, drinks and service was amazing! Between 5-7pm is happy hour, you get to make the most of 2-for-1 cocktails and $5 wines and beers. Highly recommend.

Second time going to Donny's Bar, as usual a great night out. The meal was delicious, we were able to choose a few smaller share plates then shared a main. It also coincided with happy hour and live music, which made it even better. The staff are lovely and the cocktails are great - would highly recommend

Great music, great vibe, fantastic service with very good recommendations on wine and food. I had the steak - incredible! Cooked to perfection - great flavour in the sauce. The salmon looked amazing too as did the burger! Will definitely be going back - could not fault the evening.

Great meal, great value, great atmosphere. We have dined here before and the food was better than we remembered. We probably slightly over-ordered as you can never be sure how big "share plates" are going to be, but theirs are definitely on the generous side. Added bonus of live music and happy hour - we will definitely return!

Wow - the service and food exceeded expectations. Donny's have struck a perfect balance between funky casual and attentive friendly service. The beef carpaccio and cauliflower salad in particular were delicious, paired with a beautiful selection of wines.

I had an excellent night starting with great service and ending with great food and drink. House beer is always a safe bet, and there's a broad choice of other drinks available if you like other things.

The grilled Chorizo & Leek & Manchego Croquettes were recommended by the waitress and they didn't disappoint, super yummy! The salmon was a decent size and perfectly cooked - definitely worth ordering. Wasn't a a complete fan of the Zucchini salad (hence a 4 instead of a rating), I liked the corn but the sauce & loads of onion didn’t win me over- and it's more that I don't like onion.

A great place for dinner, drinks with friends with a wide selection of dining available upstairs - if the outside tables haven't already been snatched up.
Will go back for food again!

Been to Donnys before, and liked it so much I went back for more! Double bonus if you get a First Table booking as it's then happy hour.
We had yet another great night with fab food and friendly service. Specially love that the mezzanine restaurant section still gets the vibe and great live music from the bar below, And that there's a big mix of customers - so all ages feel welcome.

Amazing food, amazing venue and vibe, the staff were so accommodating and attentive and most importantly the happy hour smooth cocktails were on point. We chose the 'staff picks' option of sharing food and there was so much great variety from different meats, seafood and vego options...everyone was happy! A must go!!!!

Love going to Donnys Bar. Great atmosphere with live music. Friendly energetic staff. Quality food and drinks with lots of choices.

Avoid the 'super egg' on the menu. Not a go to choice. Especially if you are ordering share plates

Great atmosphere in this cosy restaurant/bar in Manly. Subdued lighting and rustic decor add great ambience. Happy hour is 5-7 and First Table is for 6pm, so you get the best of both worlds. We started off with cocktails - two for the price of one - and then started on the food commencing with the pumpkin dip - which was a generous serving. The toast was hot and it would have been nice if the dip was warm or at least room temperature rather than fridge cold.- a minor gripe. For the main shares (ordered one at a time) we had the skirt steak followed by the salmon. Given the generosity of the pumpkin dip, we were a little disappointed that the steak consisted of only 3 strips. It is designed to share, so 4 would have satisfied more. The salmon (again, 3 pieces, but by then we were getting sated) and spiced brussel sprouts - delicious. Music was being set up as we left so next time, we would hang around at the bar. We will definitely visit again.

I shared a few dishes with some friends. I loved the chorizos, croquettes and the steak the most however everything we had was nice. We were nicely surprised by the brownie too! Very yummy! First time I tried the menu as I usually go for drinks and the wonderful live musics. I highly recommend to go there for dinner.

Everyone knows if Donny's for live music and great cocktails but it's not somewhere that we had thought to eat in before. The food was excellent. Quite a short menu but definitely a good variance. We had the Chorizo, Skirt Steak, Chicken Skewers, Asparagus and Sweet Potato Chips. Everything was incredible and the portions were great value for money. I only wish we could have stayed for dessert. The service was excellent too! We will definitely be going back!
