It’s hard to believe that the end of the year is almost upon us but it is and that means that the Melbourne Cup is also just around the corner (November 5th). We are taking reservations now for Melbourne Cup Day.

As we do each year we’re planning something special at all three Garfish Restaurants.

Read on for more details.

Garfish Manly

Manly has a tradition of going all out for Melbourne Cup and 2013 is no different. We’ll be running some fun events throughout the afternoon; prizes for best dressed, lucky door prizes and of course some sweeps for the race.

We have a special set menu ($90 per person), that offers something for everyone, get started with a champagne cocktail on arrival to put you in the celebratory mood.

The set menu then offers a range of mixed breads with taramasalata, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Then a selection of our best dishes from the Seafood Menu as well as options for vegetarians and the meat eaters.

Move to dessert with options including dark chocolate pecan pie, coconut and passionfruit panna cotta and a pavlova. Then enjoy a Coffee or Tea and sit back and enjoy the race on the large screen TVs around the restaurant.

Bookings are essential in Manly and can be secured by completing the Melbourne Cup Event Package and returning it to our Manly Reservations team by fax or email.

Please note there is no BYO in Manly at the Melbourne Cup Function.
