    Always nice to come home to Garfish, I know it’s just fish and chips, but they do it so well and you can’t beat the atmosphere and service.

    Parking nearby can be a little frustrating, but the excellent food, service and menu options makes you forget any parking issues in the blink of an eye! Better yet, just Uber and enjoy the offering

    A dreadful experience, this restaurant has fallen downhill dramatically from where it once was. Overpriced and terrible service. The snapper pie priced at $41 was only 3/4 full, fish was dry and overcooked. waitress asked when we walked in if we'd ever there before, not sure what that has to do with anything. The waitress was snooty and refused to service our table when I advised that I would pour my own wine (she was overfilling and too frequently) she replaced herself with another. The wine price was ok, not too bad. The fish and chips dish was served using frozen chips straight from Woolies. Overall a bad experience and we'll never be back after going there for years. The hospitality industry is on it's knees - this is why.

    The food was excellent, and service very good. I marked the "ambience" down a bit because the noise level was such that it was difficult to have a conversation. I thought I could see noise attenuation panels in the ceiling, and the noise was not as severe as in some other restaurants, but it was still a problem.

    We love Garfish Crows Nest and go there regularly. The food is consistently very good. The oysters come from a great supplier and the menu changes often enough to keep things interesting. Even though it's next to a little bit of traffic, the environment they have created even on the footpath is gorgeous. We always feel very relaxed when we are there. Excellent cocktails too. And, in a time when even the hatted restaurants struggle with staffing, this restaurant hires and holds on to some of the best. Much better staff than a lot of the hatted places. Well done team.

    we were very disappointed with the food served. I had the fish curry which was sadly lacking in fish and curry flavour. My partner had fish which was not up to the standard we experienced last time we were there. All in all quite disappointing.

    The menu at Garfish is varied with lots of choices. Our lunch was delicious:- scallops were plump and tasty, barramundi with salad was great and a sensational dessert to finish. The service was excellent. Easy council parking nearby. Garfish has been at Crows Nest for many years and is always consistently good. It can get noisy on weekends and evenings but is was perfect for a mid week lunch.
