We just had a coffee at the cafe. The large coffee comes in basically a bucket that is pretty nice. Coffee itself was not bad and the scenery was fairly relaxing.

We went with a group of Adults and a few kids. We had a really relaxed time with some very good dishes. Notably the Asian salad was worth a mention on its own. The kids were given a bread basket to feed the fish in the marina and then kept them self busy in the air con kids room. So... More

We were looking to have a brunch somewhere and wandered upon this place. It was quite busy but we managed to get a table. We both ordered the eggs benedict which was quite good and eggs were cooked perfectly and the smoothies were very good.

We stopped here for coffees,but really, we should have looked for somewhere else. The service was bad, we had to wait to order, as nobody was interested in taking our order. Then, when our iced coffees finally arrived, they were in plastic cups. And the drinks were only just passable. Definitely will not come back here.

Food is cold, expensive and just plain blah for what you get. Coffee isn't what it used to be. Service is painful and long plus they dont clean up off the tables quick enough so sometimes you have to do it yourself.

Barista made coffee was tops. Staff were attentive and friendly. The setting was very beachy, trendy and comfortable. Lots of tastebud tantalising cakes and a great lunch menu. Situated in a breezeway the Boatshed is a great place to relax, chill, catch up with friends and enjoy the views and the ambience.

Ridiculously overpriced for average quality breakfast. Very average for cost. What was served was acceptable. Service is delivered with answers by staff who like looking down rather than to you.
