Have been to this restaurant a number of times over many years but very disappointed after dinner with family x 8. Salt and pepper squid was more batter than squid. Vegetable curry was only zucchini, onion and capsicum which was more crunchy like a stir fry not a curry with really no flavour. Staff really lovely and tried to make... More

Went a long way for this long-time fave but seems to have deteriorated. Both fish and scallops did not really taste fresh; wine was good. There were flies hovering our table. Hope management can address these.

We've been here a handful of times and always had a good experience, so this rating is based on our latest experience as there were just too many misses. For a reason that escapes me now, my husband and I chose to order their featured meat dish. Maybe it was the accompanying porcini mash that drew us in. We started... More

We have been there before and went again recently for a dinner. We opted to return as we enjoy the food and the service is always so good. We were greeted as old friends and shown to our table and the service started. The dinks we ordered came quickly and once we ordered our food the entrée was also presented... More

The staff were very accommodating, the food was good, wine selection was limited for such a good restaurant and expensive, the seating outside was great, less noisy than inside - overall very pleased with the occassion

Faultless and amazing. Would go back in a heartbeat, the salmon (although asked for Medium Rare and was definitely over that) was amazing and nice and flaky, together with the sweet potato salad pairing. Dory was good too. Recommended!

This is truly how I feel fine dinning in Sydney should be done! Delicious fresh oysters first with a glass of fine Champagne, then a delicate entree of sautéd Moreton Bay bugs, and their signature snapper pie in a large ramekin for your main dish, both taken with a chilled bottle of white wine (Riesling), finishing with a sweet dessert,...

The service here is 5/5, the food has gone right down hill. This place used to be my go to restaurant in crows nest and best of the three garfish restaurants. Food needs to get back to quality once was. Curry poor, kids meals look like frozen fish, frozen chips? I doubt I will be back.

Thank Stephen A
