Delicious seafood & dining with a view to match
Arriving as dusk settles over Manly Harbour Marina, we enjoy the views and the village life of walkers, joggers and fellow diners as they settle into another evening at this lovely seaside community.
Keith's on Cambridge is the perfect setting to take in this beautiful vista and enjoy the twinkling lights over the harbour and in the village trees. The restaurant's casual ambience is perfect for those wanting a romantic lunch or dinner or simply to enjoy a relaxing drink overlooking the marina.
The restaurant befits Manly's style of casual and unpretentious, with attentive and welcoming staff. The nautical air tempts me to choose the seafood basket, whilst my dining companion enjoys a lighter tapas meal. The seafood basket is a feast of crumbed fish, coconut prawns, calamari, garden salad and a hearty serving of chips.
The tapas menu is far more extensive and varied, proving difficult to make just one selection. Keeping with the nautical theme, we opted for the Pan Seared Scallops with cauliflower puree and crispy speck. The choice of accompanying salad was a magical juxtaposition of sweet strawberries and cranberries with the bite of goat's cheese. It was proclaimed as 'one of the best salads' eaten in a while.

Other choices for shared tapas, or for lighter eaters, are Mexican Pulled Port Quesadilla, Baked Brie, Pan Fried Mushrooms or Crumbed Goat's Cheese Olives just to name a few. There's a selection of Shared Platers for those who can't decide as well.
