Garfish - Manly
with a view to savour.
Located in Manly Harbour with a view over Manly Wharf and only a short stroll from the ferry terminal, Garfish Manly occupies an enviable position perfectly suited to enjoying Australia’s best seafood and steaks.
A standout was the service at Garfish. Everyone staff member was so attentive and efficient.
Another excellent dining experience at this Manly favourite.
Always recommend Garfish to friends as best seafood and bet value for money! Our waitress was amazing - she helped us with what to get and portions etc.
Food came out at a great pace
All food tasted great - cocktails were amazing and even better that is it BYO
Will be coming back!
Love Garfish, food is great, wine is great and always well looked after!
Our experience at Garfish was amazing! The Fruit de Mer platter was absolutely delicious and the team were lovely and accommodated our request for seating preference. Can’t wait to go back! Thank you!
Great view and great food. The Sri Lankan fish and prawn curry was outstanding.
Great place for family and friends. What a location.
Service was excellent, help given with ordering, nothing any trouble, food was delicious, great venue to spend time with friends. However, liking my wine, I’d like a bigger wine list, the range is quite limited.
Unfortunately my dining experience was ruined due to the excessively loud table next to ours, where the table of four adults were practically shouting at each other, I could not hold a conversation with my partner, as I could not hear what he was saying , this soured the whole dining experience , which was very unfortunate as otherwise the food and service were very good.
Great staff. Warm and friendly. Food very good. Would return.
Amazing as always! The staff were attentive, the cocktails were delicious and the snapper pie was ON POINT.
Stunning location, exceptional service and very good food. On the Saturday lunch time that we attended it was very full, and there were several large groups celebrating birthdays, so the noise level was quite high but it did not take away from an enjoyable dining experience.
Consistently excellent food and service with a gorgeous view overlooking manly wharf!
Good fresh food, excellent service, and nice views.
Bit noisy and a little expensive but food quality was great
I’ve dined at Garfish twice in two weeks and both were very enjoyable. The menu is creative and delicious. I’ll definitely return.
Noticeably fresh and reasonably priced good food! Great menu.
The food was excellent as always. Love Garfish at Manly.
Always a joy to dine at Garfish, brilliant dining on so many levels. Thank you
Great evening for a table of six. Couldn’t find fault - food was exceptional from the bread, oysters, squid to the curry, grilled fish and 5 different puddings. Staff were attentive and friendly - thank you for a great evening.
The food was delicious and the service was amazing.
My meal was served lukewarm and was cold not long after. I was hosting guests and didn't feel comfortable to send the meal back and complain.
Very slow after sitting down to Be asked if we would like a drink - 20 minutes. Very slow delivery of the drink, another 10. Fir a slow night this is not acceptable. Food was extremely good.
The food was outstanding - plenty of flavour! It was a little slow to receive the meals but we were compensated. The staff was very attentive and very nice. Highly recommend
We regularly dine at Garfish as our go to "special occasion" restaurant. My husband and I always share the fruits de mer platter and on this occasion it was so underwhelming, I'd rate it a 3 of 10 at best. The zucchini flowers were bland, the Moroccan mussels were a weird choice of flavour for mussels and the vegetables under the salmon were an odd mushy combo of brussel sprouts and other things.
The service was also below average, we requested no oysters and the entree came with oysters and had to be sent back and they were just replaced with more fried food. We waited an exceptionally long time after entree for 3 kids mains & our main. Also, from this & previous visits, the kids spaghetti bolognese option is tiny and not filling enough.
I'd say we would definitely reconsider visiting again in a hurry.
We love garfish and have been coming for years. This visit did not disappoint.
The food and service was great. The tables are packed in quite close to each other, which actually created a good energy in the place. The ambience could do with some work I would say. It is a great location but there could have been more focus on the "feeling" of the restaurant to make it as special as the food. In particular, the lighting.
Accessible toilet was used for chair storage! Unhygienic and disrespectful for people who need to use the space.
Range of food and beverages is very good and service is tops.
Ambience and view are right up there.
Price of main courses should not go any higher.
We have dined here many times and every time has been really good, both food and service.
This particular Sunday evening was pretty quiet which is unusual but my partner and I kind of enjoyed the peace and quiet. Food and service was still top notch regardless. The Woodfired balmain bugs are beautiful and we order them every time.
Excellent food, fantastic service.
A wonderful venue to celebrate an intimate family 60th dinner.
A local favorite - never disappoints. Snapper pie a winner and going one of the only BYO restaurants in Manly an added bonus.
Was a birthday surprise and management handled this perfectly.
Took flowers and BYO earlier in the day and everything went as asked.
Even acted as if they hadn't seen me before earlier in the day so nothing was suspected.
Service was impecable and every member of staff was polite.
We were last in restaurant and weren't felt rushed to leave like you can be made to feel at other places.
Best seafood platter ever!!!
Top food and great service
I’ve never had a bad meal at Garfish
We have friends visiting from interstate.
The service was excellent the waiter and waitress were very attentive, the food was cooked to perfection.
Definatley go back
Garfish Manly is one of our local restaurants and without doubt one of the best three in Manly. We've eaten there many times and the food is always fresh and well prepared, the menu varies depending on what is in season, the wine list is well balanced and the ambience excellent. Can't really fault it.
Great staff nice food but so busy with tables crammed very close to each other, very noisy.
I was looking for a quiet table for a romantic evening, that was a mistake! as the restaurant was too
hectic with table reservations, which is good for business!
We will not come back again for dinner, maybe lunch is a better option
Lunch on A sunny Sunday. At table with no natural light, half surrounded by curtains to dark to read the menu. Tuna was dry ather meals ok
Always consistent, great food and excellent service, with beautiful views
