    A lovely venue but too many young, untrained staff running around. The beef cheeks were so dry they were difficult to swallow.

    As always Garfish was wonderful. The cocktail aperative (jalapeño marguerita) was delicious. I always come here for the fish of the day choices, and my barramundi was perfectly roasted. The wine list isn't great (I used to prefer when I could BYO a great wine of my choice and only have to pay the extortionate BYO charge, rather than the extortionate mark up on an average wine). The service was perfect, friendly and not too in-your-face.

    Nice food but please don’t start stacking chairs and generally dissembling the restaurant around us at 9.30pm on a Saturday. Our booking was for 8.30pm so we’d only been there for an hour. I understand the restaurant was quiet but it’s pretty rude. We complained to the manager who told us “it’s the way they’re trained, sorry”. As the manager, perhaps train them differently? Just a thought.
