Charming Building and Location

Visited here one cold winter's day. We were not allowed to sit at a table in the front section with a view of the bay as we were only having coffee. The coffee was good and hot but the reception was a little cold. La Perouse is a lovely spot to visit.

Had coffee and cake here. Beaut location....had wanted to sit inside to take in the view but as we had only wanted coffee we were only offered a table in the back area...despite lots of vacant tables. I think had we wanted a meal we would have been offered a prime spot. Coffee was nice...staff could be more welcoming though.

We went there for two coffees, it was not a busy day. One of the young customer service was nice, allow us to sit outside(there were 3 tables vacant at that time) but the older waiter was not allow us to sit out there. The young waiter still prepare the table outside for us(allthough we had decided to sit inside).... More

This place has terrible service, went there with my son and we were told there is no table available. Looking around the place was not even half filled. The waitress was so rude, I politely asked if they spare a table for us and was told by waitress no table and walked away. Another family of 5 after us and... More

Had a nice lunch yesterday at The Boatshed at La Perouse which was very enjoyable. Situated right on the beach at Frenchmans Bay La Perouse so nice location. There is several alternatives for the non seafood eater which I thought was good. I also liked the fact that the windows are tinted which cuts out the glare but does not... More

Expensive but because they weren't busy they were happy to cater to simple requests. Would be a nice place for an evening meal. Right by a cute beach - you could easily take your own picnic seats /rugs and get some takeaway. Not sure about swimming in Botany Bay but manager insisted not polluted!

I went here for lunch on a Sunday. It's an Italian seafood restaurant with friendly Italian staff. There is a restaurant dining area at the back with water views and a cafe area at the front. The food was good, battered fish & scollops were cooked beautifully, generous serving size, good kids menu. I really enjoyed my desert which was... More
