Yummy and delicious food.

We have used first table for years and this was definitely our favourite!! The food was incredible and the staff were really friendly and very attentive without being too overzealous. All the food was perfect! The garlic prawns were delicious as were the pork ribs. The meat platter our friends had also looked great and the steak looked cooked to absolute perfection!! Will be back for sure!!

Outstanding food and a very nice atmosphere. We all ordered different things on the menu, yet everyone truly enjoyed their dish. Steaks ...outstanding with nice sides.

The food, atmosphere and service was impeccable! I will definitely be going back there again. 5 star restaurant. Cocktails were amazing too.

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!

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!!

It was my first experience using firsttable and it was amazing. The food at Whitewater was incredible - melt in your mouth seafood. We had water views and delicious wine as well. I will definitely eat again at Whitewater. Our waitress was super helpful and so polite.

Great service and delicious food - especially the ribs!!. Loved looking over to Manly beach. Thanks

- dined at Whitewater on

We were well looked after from the moment we arrived!! My husband ordered 2 entrees (6 Tassie oysters & Salt and Pepper Seafood). He loved them both. I had Cauliflower entree seasoned with coriander & satay - scrumptious followed by Surf & Turf - ribeye steak with a gorgeous mushroom sauce accompanied by a jumbo prawn. Ribeye was perfectly cooked, but so big I couldn’t finish it. The bonus was happy hour, so our drinks were only 5 dollars each until 7 pm. Great job Whitewater!! My only suggestion- the tiled floor is looking really tired - could use an update!! Love this place and will be back next time we visit Manly Beach.

We are Manly locals & have eaten at White Water some time ago. We were eager to try it again as feed back from friends was it was underwealming. My first impression of the restaurant was how grubby it looked. The (white) chairs were covered in dark finger prints & grime. Nothing looked clean. Well maybe the food had improved. Our prime rib looked more like a mini T bone (go to the USA for a real prime rib) & my husbands steak was nothing but grissle. The sause was tasty so what a pitty his steak was so poor. My husband told the wait staff about the steak (his plate was full of grissle) & because we had the First Table discount was pushed aside as too bad!! Do they want return locals?? Obviously not.

Happy hour was great although the service a bit slow as they were busy. Fabulous view and good food

- dined at Whitewater on

My wife and I had lovely tasty meals, very generous with the seafood in the seafood linguine, less so with the Morton bay bugs with cos cos salad. Happy hour drinks added to it being great value. And we sat right out the front and I reckon we attracted about 20 customers so a win win for us and the restaurant.

Great location. Lovely decor & nice views & good service. Good selection of wine & cocktails. Food let it down. Kids portions very small even for a toddler. Pork ribs very fatty. Probably won’t go back not great value for money even with 50% off food bill with first table.

Fabulous again!! Great food and service!!

Going out with a newborn is an adventure every single time: you never know whether it's gonna work out well with your bub cosily sleeping on your chest while you're trying to nibble things from your plate or you might have to spend your whole evening outside so as not to bother other visitors, trying to calm down the little screamer.
We came as a group of four with our baby (fussy on that day) and the staff patiently waited for us to choose a table and kindly prepared one at the back of the restaurant where we felt secluded and undisturbed.
The food is simple and hearty, portions are big, which was great for sharing, and my co-diners really enjoyed all the seafood we'd ordered. Happy hour $5 wine and $10 cocktails completed the impression.
Oh, and my little girl slept through the entire dinner. Success!

Had a delicious meal in lovely setting. my husband and I shared the amazing steak and rib plate for 2. So yummy. Getting there early too meant it was happy hour so drinks were reduced. I enjoyed a very light Pina colada. Highly recommend

Cosy and delicious.
The menu has changed a lot since we have been last (quite a few years ago). The seafood options were limited, however, the beef tenderloin was amazing!

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.

- dined at Whitewater on

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.

- dined at Whitewater on

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.

Prompt efficient service. Relaxing atmosphere.
