We were going to Manly for a holiday and booked this restaurant after reading reviews of how good it was. We booked a lovely table at the front with nice views. The restaurant was very busy and there didn't appear to be any order in how staff waited on tables. Our order was taken and entrees bought out too quickly.... More

As you walk off the Manly Ferry onto the Wharf, the first thing you should be thinking about is Lunch and if you love fish, the best spot in Manly is Garfish. Even if you wanted a quick pick up, Fish N' Chips are an easy grab for $15.50. Enjoy lunch or dinner while you sit and enjoy the view... More

Five of us enjoyed a special night out at Garfish. Quality food, friendly staff, great view although spoiled a little by waiting over an hour for entrees. The mains were about another hour after the entree, fortunately it mattered little to us as we were chatting and drinking. The wait could be off putting to anyone short on time. Be... More

Garfish in Manly, wow what a meal I had. I got a table even on a busy Sunday, without to have booked a table. It is located close to the ferry and it is easy to find. I had New Zealand scampi from the wood oven, salad and sourdogh bread with virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The meal was... More

We recently had a week in Manly and had a dinner and lunch at Garfish with my husband and two young boys. I have eaten here in past years and the food is still fantastic, great flavour and presentation. We loved the fish curry and snapper pie delicious. Would have given restaurant a five apart from the arrogant attitude of... More

The view alone is worth a visit to this seafood restaurant on the Manly foreshore. The variety of lunch options is a challenge as there's so many great seafood meals and entrees to choose from. We both chose Moreton Bay Bugs which are nearly as good as crayfish with a green salad and chips. For entrée there were scallops with... More

We got a Two level seafood course with a bottle of white wine, and every single piece was amazing. Is better to share between 3, is a little but too much for too. It worth every single dollar thought. Great service.

We went here one Friday evening during our holiday in Manly. We had a short wait for a table, but were eventually seated on a bench table in front of the kitchen area. The place was at absolute full occupancy and the noise level was so loud we couldn't hear each other talk. The staff seemed rather flustered as we... More

Went with a group of 16 pax so we had the adjunct room. Despite each of us ordering from an abbreviated menu with a choice of three starters, mains and desserts, the service staff performed splendidly and very professionally. The food was very good and the kitchen had an interesting traditional pizza oven which they used to bake some of... More
