We were very disappointed with the service at Garfish last night. The food was lovely but the service really impacted this. On arrival we were ignored by the Host, the service was erratic and arrogant, and not at all personal. As we finished our meal,...More

We arrived spur of the moment on a sunday night - the staff were very helpful finding us a place in the terrace bar before taking us to our table. Attentive service, very good oysters and fish.

I really enjoyed my prawns from the grill. The service was very good. We had a table with a view which was nice. It maybe on the expensive side but I really enjoyed it. Thanks

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

There are a few parking stations in Manly including Whistler Street and some parking under Manly Wharf. Parking is not cheap and I’d recommend public transport for less stress.
