We spent the evening with family and friends celebrating our anniversary and we were delighted with the food and the service at Garfish. Their signature dish, snapper pie, was my favourite. We were in a separate room which was set up beautifully for the occasion and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable night.... More

We visited Garfish during the week, the service was attentive, the food was average. I suppose I just expected more from a restaurant that has a good name. We sent back one meal which had a hair in it and was addressed immediately . My fish was tasty but a little burnt. The steaks were well cooked but steak, a... More

Lovely lunch on a sunny autumn day. It was the Saturday before Mothers Day and it was packed! Loved the fish (Barramundi) perfectly cooked albeit a little over priced. The Oyster plate was sensational. Will definitely go back.

My girlfriend and I had dinner with friends. We eat out a lot and we travel a lot - but still, this was one of the best dinner experiences we've had in years. Fantastic!

Our last night in Sydney, just jump on a ferry and over to Manly - so simple. Our food was beautiful, my husband enjoyed his Barramundi steak & I had the beef steak which was on the specials board - it was so flavoursome and melted in my mouth. One of our friends had a baby Barramundi, and was quite... More

High end seafood restaurant. Not cheap but well worth a visit. Lots of blackboard specials. Great location, attentive service. One to remember.

My husband and i went here for a lovely anniversary dinner. The food was lovely, even the fish was good. I am not usual a fish eater so thats saying something. The view had the potential to be amazing aside from the fact we were here during the big storm. Would highly recommend.
