Manta – Seafood, Steak, Sophistication

We know the names of the fisherman who catch our seafood. We know the names of the farmers who raise our steaks. From pasture to plate, from the fishermen to the table, we know everything about our produce. It’s guaranteed to be sustainable. It’s guaranteed to be fresh. It’s guaranteed to be exquisite. This guarantee starts with our owner, Rob Rubis, who boasts 35 years of hospitality experience. Our grass-fed meat is sourced from his family farm.

This passion doesn’t end in the kitchen. Manta’s wine cellar is a product of immense effort and pride. Together with Executive Chef Daniel Hughes, we work to bring our diners a perfect marriage of outstanding produce and the best of local and international wines. Our team is always on hand to ensure that each diner enjoys the extraordinary synergy of location, food and wine on offer at Manta.

We look forward to welcoming you to our home on Sydney’s spectacular Woolloomooloo Wharf. Whether it’s a family celebration, corporate function or intimate meal, the water and skyline views provide a fitting scene for a memorable dining experience on the world’s most gorgeous harbour.

“Australia has some of the most amazing produce in the world, from cold-water species right up to the warm water pelagics and reef fish, and some of the most amazing shellfish in the world. It’s an absolute pleasure to work with some of the best produce the country has to offer in the Manta and MOLO menus.”

James brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience, having worked in the kitchens of acclaimed restaurants across the USA and Canada. As well as more recently working for Matt Moran at the famous North Bondi Fish.
