I thoroughly enjoyed the baked barramundi, the skin was delightfully crispy, the flesh moist and succulent. I selected the grape, feta, snow pea leaf and quinoa salad to accompany the fish, perfect on a hot Sydney day. The meal was delicious.

Garfish always delivers when it comes to a selection of fresh, simply cooked fish. Usually a selection of five different fish and a choice of accompaniments, cooked how you like it. A good simple formula that keeps me coming back for more.

Really great place to start the day. I have been here many times for breakfast. They cook eggs, any way, perfectly. The fruit is always fresh. A perfect experience.
