Whitewater Restaurant, Manly

It’s refreshing to see that Manly is becoming more of a foodie haven, following in the footsteps of its more famous beachy cousin Bondi, which is home to some top notch restaurants making the most of their scenic location. Whitewater Restaurant is just one of the many restaurants lining the main promenade facing Manly beach. When we drop by for lunch on a picture perfect summer weekend, we are lucky to be seated on one of the outdoor facing tables which lets us soak up the stunning view.

MoVida Special: MoVida Sydney, Surry Hills and MoVida Bar de Tapas y Vino, Melbourne

I am a massive fan of Spanish cuisine and have been waiting patiently to try the tapas at MoVida for months.

The Hudson, King Street Wharf

This restaurant is now closed.

A sleek new restaurant and bar has opened its doors at King Street Wharf and it goes by the name of The Hudson, serving up Modern European cuisine with a hint of molecular gastronomy. It’s clear that the decor is inspired by Manhattan, with the plush dark leather seats and eye-catching lights hanging vertically from the ceiling exuding an aura of luxury. The lights were dimmed when we arrived on a Friday night, adding to the glamorous ambience and accentuating the stunning view of Darling Harbour through its windows.
