Great views and great food. We dined on Tuna Tataki , prawns in a tomato sauce. The prawns were so tasty! We then opted for fish and chips-again delicious with side salad and chips. We were very impressed with the food. We suspect our waitress was new , so was not as knowledgeable about the menu but she was trying her best.

I found the service quite poor. Often throughout my time there, I had to repeatedly wave down a waiter & was told to wait. However there were three waiters and at the most, 10 patrons. For a high end restaurant, more pleasant and attentive staff is expected.
The food was delicious but very surprised their famous cauliflower dish wasn’t available.
Overall disappointed considering it was a birthday celebration as well.

We had a business meeting/dinner and sadly the quality of the food was very different to our last visit. Small dish sizes and meat not cooked to desired texture.

Have read good reviews so we were looking forward to celebrate 2 birthdays, but that was not the case the food was ordinary not bad but not great either we ordered an entre that did not arrive, seafood platter was served no water bowl for fingers. Paid the bill expected first table discount to be automatically applied, it wasn't so then phone calls and emails sent to have it rectified 2 days later. A little disappointed

Nice atmosphere, just ok food... our entrees were decent mostly except for octopus that had no flavour. Mains had little flavour. Gnocchi was hard/tough. Service was terrible - a bunch of tourist kids with little idea about good or wine or food service.

The food was sensational! We had the seafood platter for 2, which was really fresh and cooked to perfection. A great location opposite Manly beach, provides for a dreamy atmosphere - you don't want to leave. The staff are friendly and attentive, which topped off our dinning experience. We'll definitely be back.

Whitewater exceeded our expectations in both food and service! We had a window seat, so had great views of the beach. Staff were friendly, yet professional and attentive. We shared a tuna tataki., this dish had a great balance of flavour and was beautifully presented. For mains we had tuna, fish and chips and lamb cutlets. All mains were delicious. Portions were perfect. We will definitely be back - thank you!

Outstanding service and great view from the restaurant. Had the arancini balls with salt and pepper squid for entre which were delicious!! The mains of steak and chicken were beautifully cooked. I had the ribs which were big in size but small in meat value. Overall was a great night washed down with some nice champagne and wines.

We ordered the arancini balls as an entree and they were delicious. Our main was the seafood platter for two and it didn't disappoint! From fish to octopus it had everything you'd expect and tasted amazing. Would definitely recommend it.

Really good menu choice and quality food and our service was good although it was clear that some staff were obviously new and a little uncertainty did leave a wrong order on the adjacent table, but great value.

Hands down the best restaurant in manly! It was my birthday and after being spoilt shopping at the mall with my husband and daughters we arrived early for our booking. We were meet with big smiles but still very professional service. I’m super fussy about table position and it wasn’t a problem at when I requested the booth seat at the back. Still had a view but the lightening was darker and we got to see the awesome chefs at work in there open kitchen. The Kilpatrick oysters and squid for starters were to die for, didn’t want to share with the kids but had too hahaha.
We all had something different of the main a la Carte main and all were 10/10. We didn’t have dessert as my girls bought me a big pack of donuts to have when we got home but I got a coffee, which they happily put in a take away cup for me, and it was a top notch cappuccino

Service was quick and friendly, the seafood platter for 2 didn't meet our expectations with the prawns, octopus and tuna overcooked. The dory, mussels and battered fish was cooked well. Serving size was small. Location which is good is really what you are paying for.

Celebrated an anniversary dinner here and we were absolutely pleased with everything; Service, food, drinks, atmosphere and view!
We ordered 3 mains between 2 of us (cause why not) - the mushroom and chicken risotto and the seafood hot pot which were both full of beautiful flavour, however sadly the pork belly we ordered was a bit dry. The portion sizes were much bigger than we expected and so worth it even at full price.
Thank you to the waiters and manager for being so attentive throughout the night. Will definitely visit again!

We had the best dinner here, we were cold in our first seats and the staff were more then happy to move us to wherever we chose.
First up we ordered Oysters Kilpatrick & this is why I booked here as no where else in Manly could I find a restaurant serving these and omg to say the least you will not be disappointed here!! We also had the garlic bread was not overpowering and the crust nice and crunchy just how it should be and then our main meal was the Meat Platter for 2 omg omg omg to say the least!!! Served with a side salad, Beautiful crunchy chips and mash potatoe which was the best mash I have ever had!!! There was 2 slabs of approx 6ribs that was so meaty and tender, 2 French cutlets, Ribeye steak and a pork lion all this had flavours of their own and so tender and juicy - this is a must BUT we could not finish it all!! The service was just beautiful ensuring that we were happy with everything and the wait between entree and main was adhered too, our empty dishes were collected in a timely fashion and not left just sitting on our table - service was very friendly & you are made to feel comfortable- I will definitely be coming back here!!
