Manta Restaurant & Bar offers diners the chance to experience Australia’s finest produce.

Executive Chef, Daniel Hughes and Head Chef, Steve Hetherington work with local farmers and artisans to ensure only the best is sourced for our customers. From 100% grass fed beef grown on the Rubis’ family farm in Queensland, to the sustainably caught local seafood – Manta is committed to showcasing the best that Australia has to offer. On the iconic Woolloomooloo Wharf and boasting some of the city’s best Sydney Harbour dining experiences and city skyline views, there is not a finer location to drink or dine. We look forward to welcoming you.

Our Executive Chef

Daniel Hughes

Daniel places huge emphasis on fresh produce and, as with the seafood and meat, he knows the exact source of everything that passes through the Manta kitchen – from the potatoes through to the chocolate. ‘At Manta we are all passionate about produce. We have searched Australia to find the most unique, beautiful and local produce available’.

Our Head Chef

Steve Hetherington

Steve joined Manta as Chef de partie and has worked passionately alongside the Executive Chef, Daniel Hughes. Steve has always been forward thinking with his menu choices and after Manta’s full refurbishment, his fresh approach to Manta’s menu sees the appointment as Head Chef as a much deserved one. @chef.stevehetherington

Manta’s focus is on seafood that is both sustainable and very fresh. We know the names of the fishermen who catch our fish, and we know exactly when the fish was caught. This way, we can ensure the absolute freshest and best seafood for our customers with confidence and certainty.

At Manta, we focus on the quality of our meat and our customers always know exactly where the meat is sourced. Our premium, home-grown beef means we deliver a farm-to-table dining experience for all of our customers, giving an unsurpassed taste that’s both quality-driven and exquisite.

Owner Rob Rubis feels passionate about the topic considering his 35 years in the hospitality industry and involvement in over 37 restaurants. “Manta prides itself on good quality produce sourced from reputable suppliers and the Rubis family property, MSA approved Australian Grassfed Meats” says Rob.
