A little bit about who we are and what we do….

Open from 6.30 am our smiling team are there to welcome you with a perfect latte, beach breakfast and complimentary newspapers. Our outdoor seating is ideal for soaking up the sun and provides ample room for young mothers with strollers and of course, we provide entertainment with crayons and colouring books for the toddlers and young kids.

For lunch in Manly enjoy a crisp sauvignon blanc with our tasty chicken quinoa salad or one of our delicious burgers, indulge yourself with our grilled barramundi or share our homemade arancini balls with friends and family.

Pop by in the evening for a more expansive offering, perhaps our Seafood Platter for Two which would not break your budget and is served fast, fresh and with a friendly smile. Of course, we take bookings if you want to be sure of a table during the busy months, but whether you have booked or not and whatever the occasion we will be happy to accommodate your needs.

Conveniently located on Manly’s famous South Steyne we are a moment from the beach (sandy feet welcome), a stone’s throw from the bustling Corso and just a short hop to the Manly Ferry.

Stopped here for a quick morning coffee and was pleasantly surprised by the fun drink. I ordered an iced mocha and it came in a cute oldfashioned jar with chocolate drizzled on the sides and lots of yummy whipped cream on top.


Good food and excellent service good view over the water. We had lunch here. Great location with views of the beach. We had the lunch special - grilled barramundi which came with chips and salad. Well presented and delicious as well as good value. Staff very helpful but not a nuisance.. beautiful seafood very yummy food you couldn’t ask for a great place.


I went to Bluewater Cafe for dinner after work and really enjoyed my experience. The staff was so friendly and recommended some dishes to me. I decide to go with their recommendation of the Linguini Gamberi and it was quite delicious! I accompanied my meal with a recommended Pinot Noir and it went well with my pasta! Definitely recommend for dinner with a view. They provided outdoor heaters so it wasn't chilly!


Having been here a few times throughout my life I can honestly say this place is worth giving a go. The people are lovely who work there and the food is ace.


A trip to The Blue Water is a must for m every time I go to Manly. a great Food and service. The view of the beach is another reason to go.


I always enjoy eating at Bluewater Cafe. The food is lovely with lots of healthy, tasty options and the service is excellent. The staff are friendly and patient - we generally talk too much and take a long time to read the menu, but the wait staff never rush us. Very relaxing dining with beautiful Manly beach just outside.
