Last night in Manly, Garfish played host to a group of Sydney Food Bloggers in our private dining room overlooking Manly Wharf. It was a fabulous night out, with the bloggers getting a sneak preview and a chance to review the dishes that may make it onto the new Spring menu.

With pencils, iPhones and cameras in hand, our bloggers ate their way through the evening, making notes as they went.

David James, CEO of Brasserie Bread (supplier of breads to Garfish) also attended and entertained the group with a short history of Brasserie Bread as well as an insightful discussion on the making of good (great!) sour dough.

The Menu


pacific oysters, from pipeclay lagoon, tas
kingfish & king salmon tartare
calamari w/ rocket, date, parmesan & prosciutto wrap
