Dinner with two friends from Marubra was superb. The four different fish choices were all delicious as we're the oysters and octopus starters. Our early arrival (6:30pm) meant we had a lovely window table and attentive service. A special treat indeed!

We had a gorgeous sunny Sydney day for our lunch but I'm sure the views are equally sparkling at night.

Excellent oysters combination and scallops to start and superbly prepared fish and other seafood. Could not resist the cherry ripe deconstruct for dessert!

There is a very good reason why this restaurant rates so highly on the Sydney restaurant scene- consistent high quality of the food, great wine choices, the views and unhurried service.
Went as a foursome and raved at the house recommended plate of assorted oysters, all so different from one another, followed by good fish choices and cheese to conclude. Faultless food. Excellent S.A Riesling.

I like the Boathouse. Staff are friendly and helpful, without being irritating. The menu whilst having lots of seafood has quite a bit of variation and, critically, 'imagination'. The Snapper Pie is to die for and has been consistently excellent since Eric Simms was fullback for the Rabbitohs. If you have room, or are disciplined, leave room for dessert - the souffle's are exceptional!
