Foodie Destination: Manly

The sky was dark and moody and the surf was up.

Magic light on the Norfolk Pines

Book an ocean-view room at the Sebel Manly Beach and enjoy a cocktail in the quirky downstairs bar/restaurant Manly Wine. I'm in love with their lush rainforest-inspired vertical wall.

Dinner was at the new foodie hotspot -The Manly Pavilion 

With views like this no wonder its being compared to the Amalfi Coast.
Dinner was better than the view (if that is posssible) - sydney rock oysters, pea and basil gnocchi with crab and burnt butter and roasted pork belly.

The morning tide washing over the ocean sea pool

a morning walk to Shelley beach...

And then lunch at the Whitewater Restaurant.... tuna and salmon salad with mandarin,shaved fennel, jalapeno pepper and finger lime..

and a middle-eastern inspired tomato, goats cheese, pine nuts and caper salad

 Supped and rested... and a ferry back home...
