Good food, lovely staff, and wonderful location. We had a relaxing lunch with some lovely local wines, and a Jansz sparkling cocktail. Delightful.

We were looking for somewhere relaxing with good food and wine and not too noisy it was difficult to find with a number of good restaurants closed on a Thursday in February. We were delighted that we chose this well presented and ideally located restaurant five minutes from Hobart centre with views across a lovely bay to the bridge. Friendly helpful attentive service staff provided efficient and professional service. Menu unpretentious and included many local ingredients, oysters were fresh and tasty and there were plenty of Gluten Free options. Wine list included plenty of local wines at good value. Prices very reasonable. Recommended

After searching on tripadviser for restaurants, we found The Boat House. With several glowing reviews we were hopeful our meal would be worthwhile. Let me say, we were not disappointed. The ricotta, apple and pesto soufflé was to die for, and my partner who was adamant he doesn't like oysters absolutely raved about the oysters we were served. The snapper special of the day, and my sirloin steak were two of the best meals we've ever had! The service was excellent and all wait staff were friendly and quite happy to engage in conversation.

I couldn't rate this restaurant highly enough!!!

I rang and arranged a window seated table for the evening before my wife's birthday on Saturday 15th of February and from the minute we arrived, we were made to feel very comfortable and welcomed by every one who looked after us that evening. All we can say is that the wines were great, even though it rained into the night, the views of the Tasman Bridge were great and the food was to die for.
By Sydney standards, the cost was pretty reasonable given the quality of the meals and wines we enjoyed during what was made by the staff to be, a very special occasion for a romantic dinner for two.
Next time we visit Hobart, a return to the Boat House restaurant is right up there on the list and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend enjoying a meal here, to anyone.
