Not that helpful when we want to pay separately and staff could have been a little friendlier. Coffee cups now smaller but same price.

We ate here on a special occasion. We were unaware that they were having a special 7 course tasting menu. We are not big eaters, so normally wouldn't go for this, but were pleasantly surprised by the serving size and flavour. I am a bit fussy with some flavours, but found each course to be delicious. Overall, I was most... More

The café is in a wonderful location. We mainly enjoyed light breakfast style meals and coffee. The staff and their service was good, nice laid back atmosphere and while we were there, same customs each day.

I love going to dinner at the Boatshed - besides great food you can hear the water lapping up against the sides of the restaurant. On a Friday or Saturday night they have lovely white tablecloths and long stem glasses. Very Classy.

Panoramic setting, made all the more beautiful with stunning rainbows. Whilst we were expecting lovely food somehow on our night there just pre New Year it was a bit off. Maybe tired, everyone was ok but not what we had been led to believe

Wonderful food delightful staff Found it unusual that there was no seafood options for main meal but gave me the opportunity to enjoy the diversity of the menu by having two entrees. Try it you won't regret it

Great food, great service, but no local fish option for a main?? There was awesome oysters, scallops were a bit meh, baby Barra was real good, but how can a restaurant on the water in a seaside location not serve local fish as a main??

We have enjoyed breakfast at the Boatshed but found the dinner to being restricted to Wed to Sat. It is very expensive for wines etc and hence the bill mounts up.

After making the necessary booking, we visited The Boatshed for a one-day-late birthday on Thursday 12th January 2017 and were immediately impressed by its absolute (and I mean absolute!!) water frontage. The waitresses were very friendly and attentive, and the speed in which our very delicious meals were delivered was phenomenal - one of the quickest we have witnessed. We... More
