Bars & Cafes
The Sand Bar is an award-winning café on the north end of Dee Why's beachfront, taking in the spectacular visa of Dee Why beach. They serve up the most spectacular breakfasts: from humble homemade muesli, to hearty maple syrup-drenched buttermilk pancake stacks, to luxurious smoked salmon and chive scrambled eggs—though the lunch and dinner dishes are just as good. The Portuguese Espatada, skewered sirloin served dangling from a metal hook, is a specialty. The top-quality food is enhanced by a well chosen wine list and some classic (Cosmopolitan or Bellini) as well as the more inventive cocktails (Bombay Bombiggity).
Stella Blu, a swish Italian bar and restaurant on Dee Why's corso, has a spacious, comfortable inside dining and bar area and a large shaded patio with great views of the magnificent sweep of beach through the row of Norfolk Pines. Visitors can hang in the bar, sampling their signature cocktails including Lychee Martini, Platinum Blonde or the Mrs. Robinson, as well as a taste of their tapas bar menu—the hot, salty, Taleggio-cheese stuffed olives are perfect with a cold beer. Or head to the restaurant for some classic Italian. The Agnello Brasato, 6-hour slow roasted shoulder of lamb, is recommended, as is the table groaning seafood banquet. From Monday to Friday, it opens at 9a and during the weekends at 8a.
The third location of Lizotte's in New South Wales, the other two being in Newcastle and Kincumber, Lizotte's Sydney is the place to head for if you are in the mood for some local flavor and entertaining music.

Overlooking picturesque Pittwater, Arms is one of the Northern Beaches' trump cards. Frequented by locals who moor their yachts along the peninsula, as well as surfers, families, big groups of friends, and jazz aficionados (the live jazz on Sundays is an institution), the Newport Arms is more like a street party than a pub. Inside, there are big, roomy, unpretentious bar areas, but the beer garden and outdoor tables are the most sought-after spots on a sunny afternoon. The bistro serves a limited but popular menu that includes pub favorites like fish and chips, calamari, oysters, salads and burgers.

Please contact the Steyne Hotel for the different timings and relevant services offered.
Shiver me timbers! There's now another good reason to set sail for Sydney's north shore and weigh anchor at the magnificent Manly Beach. The Hotel Steyne has renovated their top floor venue and relaunched it as the Moonshine Rum & Cider Bar. It's themed as a pirate's hangout, decked out in lots of distressed wood and nautical ropes. And in true pirate style, they only serve drinks fit for seafaring folk: cider and rum. This means no beers, wine or cocktails, but with more than 16 ciders on tap and 100 different rums on offer, you won't be wanting for choice. -Kashmir Brummel
Elegantly yet tropically furnished, Shore Club gives you a place to enjoy, chill out and get ready for some fun under the sun.

Hanging around on the beach was never before so much fun and replenishing!
It is worth searching out this little café amongst the hustle and bustle of the Manly shoreline. Soak up the beach side culture either at the pavement tables or in the fan cooled interior. Classic surfboards hang from the walls, one even sports the specials menu, and black and white photos in driftwood frames depict surfers from days gone. Enjoying a mixed clientele, staff are friendly and relaxed creating a most agreeable atmosphere.
