The restaurant is in a great setting on the river. For my lunch the service was prompt and professional with drinks and orders taken in good time. Glasses were refilled and the waiter offered advice. The meals arrived quickly, looked great, were a decent size and were very good. Everyone in my group enjoyed our meals.

We visited as a group of 7. Service was fantastic, as was extensive wine list. We had the chefs special swordfish which was amazing and others had risotto which was apparently just ok. Other half had the beef cheek which was cooked to perfection but the salad on hot was extremely spicy which almost ruined the dish. Food was all... More

Attending a function for over 60 people, I was pleasantly surprised with the choice of food, quality and presentation. Due to the size of the party we were on the upper level, which offers a fabulous 180 degree view of Noosa River.

Hadn't been here for years and my memory of last visit was that it was like a glorified surf club. However went for lunch on the $28, 2 course + wine special and was very impressed. Excellent food, service and sat right on the waterfront. Will def. Go back again for lunch. Highly recommend.

We went on the ferry for subset cocktails which were very nice and had booked a table for dinner. However the food was not great and the service was not good at all. We waited so long for the dessert menu that we got up and left.

We dined for lunch at the Boathouse Bistro located at Noosaville on a recent stay in the area. We had dined there on a previous visit a few years ago and chose to return for another visit, as its location is outstanding, situated floating on the river. The location of our table with an outstanding view and cooling breeze, was... More

I try to visit all the restaurants in Noosa and Noosaville. My meal at Noosa Boathouse was ordinary. Greeted by staff member and seated. Prompt taking of orders. I ordered entrees of calamari (fantastic and tender), fish cakes (bland) and prawn salad (average). Main of fish and chips also very average, with the fish neither succulent or tasty. Sadly even...
