Manly’s hidden treasure sits on an enviable spot opposite the sparkling blue waters of Cabbage Tree Bay, close to Manly Beach and Shelley Beach. It’s directly opposite world- renowned surf icon, the Fairy Bower.

The Bower Restaurant is a family business, run by Hartmut and Lidia Schacker and their professional team. The emphasis is on great food and service in a relaxed setting, taking advantage of the stunning views.

The menu regularly changes to reflect the best of local, organic and seasonal produce available. You might find dory fillet with quinoa salad, mushroom and asparagus risotto, or Fumo’s famous Jim Beam smoked brisket panini. Whatever’s cooking in the kitchen, you’re sure to find something to tickle your taste buds.

Excellent coffee and a great range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are on offer to wet your whistle too.

Pretty informal cafe setting with international standard restaurant meals - perfect combination and doubly beautiful if you get there before nightfall and witness the colour changes over the ocean

The menu is limited - but there is something for everyone. We chose to share a few dishes and had a great experience. We had the oysters which were plump and fresh and the accompanying sauce was delicious. The sake poached prawns were great as well, followed by the wagyu sirloin - for me dish of the night! All this followed by the coconut pana cotta. Highly recommend the Bower for a special meal out.

Hadn't been here before and the view was as special as I was expecting. Great spot for watching the ocean, swimmers and people watching. Food was great - fresh, clean flavours and nice veg offerings. Only grumble would be the lack of dessert options. Green tea cheesecake just doesn't cut it for me. Would definitely return.

The Bower Restaurant is a great little place to watch the roaming clouds, and life happening at Shelly Beach especially on a stormy day. We got to watch people swimming whilst others were doing a mini biathlon. We got to soak it all in and have great lovely food in a great ambience of this establishment with very helpful service. I would say to people to give in try and enjoy the experience. If I can make one note that having the first table discount did help with costs as paying full price would have been a bit more then what we would have expected to pay for 2 people and the portion sizes.

Stunning place with stunning views! Excellent food. We chose the Scallops to start and the Beef as our main course and with the Pinot Rose and the Pinot Noir we needed to stop eating as our bellies were full. BUT somehow we got talked into a sweet!! The Chocolate Cheesecake was the best I have ever tasted...... We had planned a Friday night out in Manly! One glass of wine in the Hold and we gave up and went home to rest.... I would recommend the Bower to you all!

one of the best meals i have eaten out ! Everything that we had, was superb!< If it wasn't for First Table, probably would not have tried eating here for dinner, but so glad that i had the opportunity to do so. Everything was perfect, the food, the service, the ambience. Highly recommend.
