We went for lunch and I think the whole restaurant was having the two course lunch special for $29 including a glass of wine. Two of us had the salt and pepper calamari, tender, tender, tender and the other had the fishcakes, very tasty. We all had the roast lamb for the main and the meat just melted. Very big portions! Definately would go back!!

Highly recommend the reef and beef, sensational steak, prawns, and bug. Very reasonable value. Great apple crumble dessert also. Service was tops and the staff are actually switched on, don't miss a beat. We'll be back here sometime.

We had spent the last 2 weeks in Australia eating at various places up and down the East Coast but our last night was in Noosa, staying virtually opposite the Boathouse at the Islanda Noosa Resort where they told us upon arrival that we could get a discount at the Boathouse. We walked over to see if we could get a reservation for the 3 of us and sure enough they could but they explained that it wouldn't be a table near the window and showed us the table we would be having. We were pleased just to get any table to be honest and you could still see out of the window so we agreed. When we came back, we were shown to another table in the window! We were delighted and although it was dark by then, we loved seeing the pelicans swimming right up next to us and the lit up boats. The food was excellent and I can honestly say it was the best steak I've ever had! I understand that the bill was quite reasonable compared with others so I can certainly recommend it. I'm sure it would be a delightful place to eat in the daylight too with so much to view on the river. Service was a little slow towards the end of the meal, getting the bill etc but as everyone eats early in Oz, I can understand that.

A floating restaurant could be a tourist trap, but not this one. We had a great two-course lunch with a glass of wine for under $30. Service was excellent despite the presence of a large Senior's group enjoying a day out.

We recently went to this Boathouse for a drink and were shown two places were we could sit. We chose the area where we could enjoy the sunset like many others so it was a little crowded. A lovely young waitress told us we could sit at a table for a quick drink however if guests needed that table for dinner we would have to move. It was only about 4.45 pm so we thanked her and sat down. Shortly after we saw a man talk to the waitress and he came to our table and told us that the table was booked and we would have to move before 6 pm. We told him that we had been told the situation, but we felt his approach was unfriendly.

Hi Laraine, thanks for sharing your experience with us. We have had the time to review the staff involved in servicing you during your recent visit and have addressed your comments. It appears that on this occasion our staff member may have prioritised efficiency in planning ahead for reserved diners over service delivery to you. We hope you were still able to enjoy the beautiful sunset views and hope to have the opportunity to see you again in the future.
