About Manta Restaurant
The views out over Sydney harbour from Manta’s Cowper Wharf Roadway premises only underline this well-known Woolloomooloo seafood restaurant’s philosophy – to stay close to the source, know their suppliers, and know precisely when the fish was caught. The same goes for the other ingredients that make their way into Manta’s dishes, with owner Rob Rubis maintaining a farm to table ethos that mandates the use of produce sourced from his family’s own farm and, for example, beef from Australian Grassfed Meats, guaranteeing hormone-free and grass-fed cuts. Head chef Daniel Hughes is similarly passionate, knowing the source of everything that makes it into his kitchen, from the potatoes through to the chocolate. As for the food itself, Manta are famed for their oysters, but it’s true that everything on the restaurant’s menu has a pedigree that’s the envy of other Sydney restaurants. Perfect for casual dining or private hire, Manta is one venue that deserves every gourmet’s reservation.

Great food, very good service and a lovely setting. We always have a nice meal at this restaurant and we've been coming here for over 10 years.
The service is always great 👍 Great atmosphere great views great for people watching. The food is sensational especially the octopus and don't forget to try the lamb rack and a glass of Penfolds bin 150, you will not be disappointed.
A wonderful setting, great service and awesome food. Will put it on my list of favourite restaurants. Recommend to looking for the authentic 'Sydney' experience.
Food was delicious, the service great. Seated outside on the wharf looking over to the city was just perfect for a dinner out with out of state friends visiting. We really showed off a great Sydney restaurant!
Great food, the lobster a bit pricey, $300 for one?!? Staff were attentive aside from us needing to use the table cloth to butter our bread. Would go back.
Food, wine, service, location and atmosphere were very good. The honesty of the waiter in preventing us from double tipping was appreciated. Thank you very much.
Garfish was wafer thin and I was told aoili was on the side and it wasn't Didn't like the wine that was recommended and waitress not happy about exchanging it
The food and the service is good but when I try to pay the bill, the senior waitress wasn't very professional and polite. But everything else is good.
