Lovely, attentive service and the food was delicious
Been to Garfish multiple times and is always excellent value. Staff are professional and food is always great.
Since finding out a few years ago I was
ceoliac up until now I have been very praising of Garfish's gluren free friendly menu and staff attitude. It was disappointing to find on Tuesday you had no gluten free beer, the citrus sauce on my favorite salad is not gluten free (anymore!!) and you could not serve me a desert coffee with ice cream because it had gluten in it. It is not difficult to get gluten free ice cream at arguably the same cost and taste as gluten containing ice cream.
I will be coming back soon with my partner for her birthday. I hope I do not come away disappointed again. Garfish has been our go to restaurant for 9 years . I hope it continues to be.
Best seafood platter I have had in a while no battered food all fresh. Staff were friendly, will definitely be back.
Amazing ! Loved the food and service ! Really enjoyable experience
Always excellent food and service. Highly recommended.
Excellent Service - lovely staff and great food -highly recommend this place
The food and service was great. The restaurant is just next to Manly Wharf, the location is very good as well. From my seat, I can see Manly view. very good experience.
Definitely lives up to its reviews, the seafood was fresh and service was very accommodating. 👌
We had a lovely meal at Garfish. The Lobster was absolutely immaculate.
Excellent dinner and drinks. Service was fantastic. We always love going there
Great tasty food and attentive staff made for a lovely night.
Fantastic Restaurant with good food and wonderful staff.
Food beautiful as usual, great ambience, and excellent service. Long time between starter and main course but we enjoyed the break between courses and it was nice not to be rushed out.
Service is always amazing and the food great. Not over crowded.
Much better than our last recent meal when we requested to move a table away from the dark curtain surrounding our table at the back of the restaurant.
This time we looked straight up the harbour on a beautiful day!
We were blown away by the menu choice, the quality of food and the friendly, knowledgeable and attentive service - we loved our Garfish experience and can't wait to come back!
Garfish is always a fabulous experience - food and service both excellent!
Thank you for the love, Justine! We are beyond happy that you always enjoy your time here. Hope to see you again soon! Danen Restaurant Manager
Always love, love, love Garfish and were so looking forward to dining again but just felt that the wait staff were a bit too attentive and unfortunately rushed us. I understand that with Covid it is a difficult time and tables are on strict time limits but it's been quite a while since my husband and I dined out so on this occasion, we were a sadly little disappointed. Kind regards Linda
Hi Linda, Thank you for your time and feedback. We are very sorry that you felt rushed on the night as this is never our intention. Our 2 hour seating times were implemented as a government COVID guideline (to minimise risk of transmission), but also as we are operating at less than half our restaurant's capacity, to maximise the number of guests we can accommodate. If you would like to discuss further please do not hesitate to contact me. Warm regards, Danen Restaurant Manager
The location was amazing with the sunset. Food was fantastic and the service was beyond professional.
Thank you Lisa! The sunsets are just one of the many things to love about Manly! The team is delighted that you enjoyed our food and service. We hope to see you again! Danen Restaurant Manager
Very impressed with the service and meals. Will definitely be coming back.
Thank you again for a great experience for my girlfriends 30th birthday!!
Thank you, Ant! The team loves making special occasions memorable, so they will be very happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us. Can't wait to welcome you back! Danen Restaurant Manager
Staff were very friendly and went above what they needed to do We were there for a birthday but hadn’t said anything, the waitress over heard and when went received our dessert they had candles and a happy birthday message on them.
Thank you Tania! We strive to go above and beyond to make your experience a special one. We're very glad you had a lovely time for this birthday celebration! Hope to see you soon! Danen Restaurant Manager
Great food and service....knowledgeable and helpful staff.
Was a gorgeous day and I wanted to feel on holiday!! So I organized with a friend to go to dinner as you do when away .... my go to is always the grilled salmon with mash. This time we also added mixed oysters and sav blanc! Also had the salmon pie before too bit too hot that day. Sooo consistently good! Added bonus is I live on West esplanade so only a short stroll home ... like on holidays!
Fresh food, great service, lovely cocktail list. Especially a great experience when it’s warm and the windows open to help control the noise levels. Always a favourite place.
Good business lunch venue, although quite loud. Good food, wine and service.
Great service and so delicious! Love the zucchini flowers so much!
A great night out. The table spacing adds to a relaxed quiet evening, please keep it up.
Absolutely fantastic food and service, great cocktails, the food was well paced and the staff really went above and beyond to give us a great experience. I booked for an impromptu wedding the day before and they managed to give us a great table and some lovely extra touches to make it special. Thank you so much!
It was our pleasure Suzy! Glad we could accommodate on short notice and make your evening a special one! Our team has been working hard to show why we are one of the best in Manly, and feedback like this puts smiles on our faces! So thank you! Hope to see you soon. Danen Restaurant Manager
We loved it the entrees were outstanding which we shared, and the mains were also excellent and proved to be more than we could eat !
We go to garfish often, we love they food, it’s always great!..It was my bday dinner and We ware leaving happy, full and satisfied, even 2hours Civid 19 restrictions, still great value!..and service-outstanding!
Once again the cuisine, ambience and service met or exceeded our expectations. We cannot single anyone out because they were all great. Knowledge of the menu, wine list and bar offerings was offered in a friendly and informative manner. Everyone smiled.
We left happy and will return often
Thank you for your wonderful words! Our team puts in a lot of time and effort to be as knowledgeable as they can be, so it's great to hear the hard work is paying dividends. Can't wait to see you again! Danen Restaurant Manager
The food here has improved since our last visit many years ago and you must try the mixed oyster plate. Really delicious. Well be back.
Thank you Robert! The kitchen has been working very hard to bring our food up to the next level. They will be very happy to hear the hard work is paying off! Thank you for your feedback. Danen Restaurant Manager
Fantastic dining experience with 3 work colleagues. Ordered several starters including the Natural rock oysters which didn’t disappoint.
Mains were beautiful Crab Linguine, Rainbow Trout were the standouts and the wine was nice and had several affordable options which was refreshing.
We were very disappointed with this restaurant. Had been here a few years ago and loved it and were looking forward to returning. But found the food tasteless and over priced. Fish pie was overcooked and our piece of fish had no flavour. Not impressed for the price we paid.
We're very sorry you didn't enjoy your experience upon returning after so long. Our team has been working hard to provide everyone with an exceptional experience, so we're sad we missed the mark on this occassion. If you would like to discuss further please do no hesitate to email the restaurant. Kind regards, Danen Restaurant Manager
Such a lovely experience and the food was amazing
Food & Wine very good , great table next to the window
Nice food and great cocktails, service was good and friendly
The food and staff were fantastic and overall a very pleasant experience. The salmon ceviche was amazing. I'm going back.
Always enjoy the food, level of service and the beachfront position.
