Our daughter who lives in Sydney took us to the Boathouse on a Saturday night - we had a perfect night out. The restaurant is on top of Sydney Uni boathouse so is right on the water and darkness of course lends enchantment with twinkling lights and shadowy water. We had a window table and noticed noise levels were contained- so nice to be able to talk without straining ! Great list of aperitifs - do try one of the special gins ! Service was attentive without being intrusive - not many restaurants achieve this - the Boathouse did it well ! Water, warm bread and aperitifs promptly arrived. Our starters were blinis and caviar, sashimi and the oysters - my oyster loving husband was in seventh heaven with the Wapengo oysters. We had all ordered the fish pie - it is lovely to have a bit of theatre in a restaurant - the pie arrives on a trolley and each person is served a portion of their individual pie and then the pie dishes are put on the table - absolutely heavenly fish pie !!!! The side of beans was perfect (beautiful mashed potato accompanied the pie) - crispy hazelnuts on top and the beans perfectly cooked - gorgeous. Pannacotta and berries was a delightful light finish to our meal. Some items on the menu are pricey but our meal was on a par with Sydney prices - AND it was so worth it - great food, gorgeous views and the ability to be able to converse plus professional service. A wonderful special night out
