Cuisine: Australian, Cafe, French

Hemingway's is a solace by the sea that offers the best coffee, breakfast, lunch and of course dinner.

With bookshelves lining the walls, the low lighting and the portrait of the gentleman himself, you’ll feel as though you’re in Hemingway's library.

The modern Australian bar menu comes attached to an encyclopaedia, a dictionary or a children's book, listing the likes of chips with oxtail gravy, gourmet fish fingers and chicken schnitzel sliders.

This cosy cafe/bar is the ultimate writer's den - seemingly a world away from Manly’s sunny beach culture.

This funky little place is a Manly favourite and a must try!

Lovely place with a great view. The food was tasty with decent sized portions but some of the flavours were a bit bland. The service was a little slow despite it being quiet.

Good fish and chips. We ordered the sweet potato wedges instead of the chips and it was amazing. All 3 of us really enjoyed the meal. Staff very helpful and friendly. It was good to sit inside. Bonus was to get there early about 6.30pm for dinner as it's not too noisy and then stroll along the beach. Great easy going night.

We had for starters the 3 Hemingway's special - the chicken nuggets and cauliflower nuggets were delicious! For main my wife had the 4 cheese pizza, she said it was ok nothing special and I had the sirloin steak with sweet potato chips and mushroom sauce - steak was cooked perfectly and the chips were really good, the sauce was a bit boring but the only think that really disappointed me was eat the steak without a steak knife - not fun!
We had chocolate mousse and creme burle for dessert and they were delicious! Overall experience was great!

This is a return visit - last time was mid-winter so we wanted to try a summer visit and we enjoyed the cauliflower nuggets and truffle parmesan fries so much the first time, we had them again - didn't disappoint! We added the chicken nuggets and falafel share plate which was good too. Unfortunately the chorizo pizza was off the menu - run out of chorizo!? - but we tried the mushroom pizza which was yummy, just not what we were hoping to try.Very friendly staff.

We arrived at Hemingway's after a lovely stroll on Manly Beach, catching the ferry across from the city is a real treat to someone who doesn't really live around the area. But we were delighted from the beginning at Hemingway's with the uniqueness of the restaurant, great location and delicious, different types of food.
The service staff were friendly, and gave you the coolest style of drink menu I have ever seen, stapled to older books we got more distracted reading the book than reading the menu!
The overall highlight was definitely their unique chicken nuggets, would go back regularly just for these!
Thank you Hemingway's for a lovely evening.

I have been dining here a couple of times, the most of the food is quite close to some french dishes and steak tartare is great. However, there is not much variety in the entrees, only 3 french starters. Wine and drink list is reasonable.
I would come back again, the only negative point is that the waiting staff always ask for the tip when paying the bill which is uncomfortable.

Fabulous atmosphere in this little gem of a restaurant/bar. Love the décor, drinks and food options. Staff were friendly and welcoming, particularly given the fact we dined with a couple of wild children! (Def wish to return without the kids and some friends instead one time and sample more of the drinks list!) Recommend the nuggets and the falafel from the starters list - yum!

Sit next to the big bookcases filled with mood lighting and soak up the atmosphere reminiscent of a bygone era with a touch of today. Enjoy great food and cocktails whilst watching/listening to live entertainment.

We had not dined in Manly for quite some time, so this was bit of an experiment. Our choice of restaurant was also a bit of an experiment. We are seniors and did not know how we would go sitting on metal stools for an evening. It was the theme of the restaurant that attracted us. Overall we had a pleasant evening, but it is much more suitable for younger people.

This was a fabulous experience! The food was exceptional, we shared the 5-cheese platter and then tucked in to a steak with spicy wedges & the lamb stew. Everything was cooked to perfection! The champagne and wine was delicious and the service first class...... Finally, the atmosphere was enhanced by live music which suited the location perfectly! A night to remember in a great venue!

Amazing food and a great atmosphere! We had 2 share plates cauliflower nuggets (a must have) and salt and pepper squid, this was a big entree but we couldn’t stop there.for main we had the steak and sweet potato fries and seared tuna salad (I would recommend the steak for anyone who is really hungry). Dessert we shared the chocolate fondant (Amazing!). Overall a great experience and we will be back with our friends again soon!

A delightful candlelight setting amongst walls of books. It was a fun surprise to be handed our menu inside a children’s story book.
The service was professional and fast with delicious food in a warm and welcoming atmosphere in one of Manly’s best locations.
Will definitely go back again.
