We recently held a function at the boathouse, and nothing was too much trouble for their Chef, or their professional staff. From their want to seat us in a good place (Views are amazing anywhere in the restaurant), to their accommodation of dietary requirements, they could not do enough to make sure the night was perfect. (which it was) We... More

We had the opportunity to go out for a dinner just the two of us stupidly thinking this restaurant was somewhat intimate and geared towards couples, no way! Whilst we had a table for two overlooking the water on one side we had screaming kids and on the other side a table of obnoxious drunk loud 65 year olds screaming... More

We had dinner here on our first night in Noosaville staying in Rimini Apartments. We shared calamari for a starter, it was the size of a main course and was excellent. There is a good variety of fish on the menu and sauces to accompany the fish. Before dinner we had cocktails in the bar to watch the sunset, which... More

We opted for the set lunch menu - 3 courses for $35 with a beverage included. Our children dined from the kids menu & were accommodated with colouring in supplies!
