Every year we visit Manly and have our anniversary dinner at Garfish. The food is always excellent with exceptional service from the staff. The views and atmosphere are wonderful which helps to make our anniversary very special. Thank you once again.

Great food, great view, great service. Cocktails are a must. Menu upmarket but not over the top. Staff lovely and welcoming. Tourists and locals can be found here any day of the week. Highly recommended.

I've tried fish and chips just about everywhere you could, including Doyle's in Watsons Bay, and I have yet to find a fish and chip dish that even TOUCHES Garfish's. It is truly second to none. Take a trip to Manly just to try that...More

Thank you for your review. We do take all feedback very seriously as this allows us the opportunity to improve upon and maintain the high standards of both food and service that our regulars have come to expect. I am sorry that we fell short...More

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
