Cup Day is less than a month away on Tuesday November 4. If the race is on to find a venue to enjoy the event, Garfish can help. We’ve hosted many a successful Melbourne Cup Day in previous years and this year we’re gearing up to do the same.


Manly always enjoys getting into the spirit of the event and 2014 promises to be no different. We’re offering a special set menu at $90 per head catering for all tastes.

Fish lovers will be treated to a choice of delectable entrees including beetroot and citrus cured atlantic salmon or seared scallops with green papaya, thai herb salad and nam jim. The choice of mains promises to be just as enticing, and the sweet finish to your meal won’t disappoint with desserts for chocolate lovers and fruit lovers alike. And if you’re vegetarian or in the mood for a meat dish, Garfish has something to satisfy with our non-seafood set menu.

Did we mention it’s an event? Every guest will be treated to a glass of Chandon sparkling on arrival (included in the set menu price), and there will be prizes for the best dressed male and female guest, the coveted Garfish cup, a lucky door prize and sweeps throughout the afternoon. We’ll ensure you won’t miss a moment of the cup action, with the race being broadcast on the screens within 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.

For more information please contact Manly’s reception on 9970 0707.

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

Crows Nest

If you’re after a relaxed approach to Melbourne Cup Day, Crows Nest Garfish is the perfect option. The race will be broadcast on our big screen and you can choose the dishes to best suit your mood on the day from our spring a la carte menu.

Reservations are required and can be made by phone with the Crows Nest reception: 9966 0445.


Don’t fancy yourself a Melbourne Cup fan? Kirribilli will be open for lunch on Cup day serving our a la carte menu but we don’t broadcast the race. So if you’re looking for the opportunity to enjoy a quieter lunch, you’ll find us tucked away just under the Harbour bridge in the heart of Kirribilli.

Please contact Kirribilli reception on 9922 4322 if you wish to make a booking.
