Sketch is Manly’s best kept secret! Sketch is my go-to for coffee, brunch and dinner. The food is always amazing (try the haloumi and the funghi korma), the service is excellent and personable, and the restaurant itself is small and intimate, and has such a nice vibe.

Definitely an amazing experience! My cousin and I were 20 minutes late, but the head chef was understanding and brought us up to speed with what we had missed (luckily it wasn’t much!). Each dish was plated beautifully, and every bite was a delicious experience. 10’s across the board!

We had a fantastic experience at LUNAS. The ladies, serving US, were very helpful and friendly. At the end of the evening, my friend lost and earing and the Staff were helpful and honest. The food was slightly diferent from what we expected, but delicious non the less. I can recommend it to anyone. Some parking available and love the fresh herbs garden beds. I will return for lunch...

D.O.C is real Italian eating and age old simplicity refreshed with contemporary flair. A celebration of heritage. A joy in sharing. Authentic, exuberant, and outrageously Italian.

About the restaurant
Welcome to your home away from home. The locals' lounge room.
Where new and old friends from around the globe gather for organic charcuterie, house-made pasta + European and Australian wine.

Owner Stu and his team enjoy meats of Europe, the pastas of Italy, and wines from off the beaten track. The restaurant comes together over a love of pork and swill (and country music).

The kitchen team spends afternoons pickling, rolling gnocchi, making focaccia and keeping an eye on our beloved cured meats and pecorino cheese wheels. By nightfall the show is on, the house is full and the atmosphere is swinging.

So come on in and let us guide you through our menu. Welcome to our Diner!!

Great food and great service. Would be nice in winter with a warm fireplace and maybe some ceiling ambient lighting. However, overall really good.

We went out for my brother in law's birthday we were so happy with the food. Food was flowing, service was very efficient. There wasn't a moment where the table was cluttered. Drinks were constantly topped up so no empty glasses.
