Also seafood pasta and chicken Parma And desserts all good .... Loved the atmosphere but think the meals for what they were are overpriced .....

Hi Michael

Thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately management did not receive any negative comments regarding meals or service on our Salsa night so it is difficult for us to address your concerns. Should you wish to elaborate on your experience and also the meal that you had please feel free to email us directly on info@boathouserestaurant.com.au as we would love to have the opportunity to review your experience in a positive and contructive way with our team.

“Not what we hoped for...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

The oysters kilpatrick were small, but the sauce tasted great (quite spicy). Bread was expensive. The mains were a reasonably limited choice, as we avoided the $95 seafood platter after seeing someone with it. All dishes we ordered - linguine, barramundi and bugs - were average.
Location is gorgeous. Service was quite slow when we dined.

“We will definitely return.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

Visited the Boathouse on 25 Sep with my husband and two children (5 and 3). The food was absolutely beautiful - bug salad and herb crusted barramundi for the adults; bolognese and fish and chips for the kids. Great location and brilliant value (kids ate free 5:30-7pm). Can't wait to go back.

“The Boathouse Noosa - tastey food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

My wife and I (by mistake) stumbled over this floating restarunt on the Noosa river. As self confessed 'food snobs' we were pleasently surprised to find great steak, great fish and a view you can't find at any restarunt on the sunshine coast. Magic! Thanks for a fun and tasty night at The Boathouse guys. We'll be back for cocktails on the top deck next year :)
