The view here is one of the best in Botany Bay.At high tide,you actually are out on the water,giving the impression of being on a vessel.The food is good quality fare,which has been run by this family for a long time now.A must do!!

The Boatshed Cafe at La Perouse has been a favourite for some years with its great position and fairly simple menu of freshly cooked seafood - mostly fish & chips.

Been thrice or more to this wonderful 'floating' restaurant. Each time I've enjoyed great tastes, friendly service and that dine aboard feeling.
