Steaks and great food ahoy in Manly
A succulent rump steak was my meal of choice for my free birthday meal at the Manly Hotel Sails restaurant. Tasty, it definitely was accompanied by mash and seasonal vegetables, with chips and salad, another option.
The day and evening menus has a lot of traditional fare with welcome additions including Grille Haloumi Salad; a Potato Gnocchi Vegetable Medley, Lam Rogan Josh and seafood including a Macadamia Barramundi. Children are catered for with several dishes ranging from $7-12 for Manly Reward members.
The restaurant is light and airy with vibrant art from a local Manly artist adorning the walls. It is situated separately from the main bar allowing diners a separate dining experience from those enjoying the bars, including a craft beer bar.
The Manly Hotel is at the heart of Manly Harbour Village, a short walk up from Manly Harbour and is known as 'The Hotel by the Sea' and the 'Manly' to its regular customers. A family run pub it has been serving cold drinks, quality food and a live entertainment since 1955.
As a Manly Hotel Rewards member I was entitled to a free meal for a few weeks after my birthday and had enjoyed this at many times over the years. Rewards members get a discount on meals and are sent regular offers.
The Manly is open 7 days for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For more details go to the Manly Hotel website or call on (07) 3249 5999.
