“Have a drink by the river”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

This place has good food, good coffee and if you can sit on the deck and watch the river, it's even better. The bistro/bar is great for a casual get-together, or there is the fancier restaurant with windows all along the room overlooking the river. Service is always good too.

“Rustic unspoilt and great seafood”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

We enjoyed a fabulous seafood meal here while on holiday along the Great Ocean Road. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the seafood was fresh and beautifully cooked. We chose to sit outside on a Friday evening in this perfect unspoilt spot on the river.
The boathouse is rustic and if you enjoy a pretty natural setting...... it is magic!

“Sensational Meal”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Go there regularly for both lunch and dinner and never had a bad meal. Service is sensational and food simply outstanding. Just the best place to have a quiet meal for 2 or take the extended family. Never changes always perfect.

“Great food & views!!!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

We went for lunch on a blistering 40 degree day. We sat upstairs as downstairs did not have A/C. WOW! What a lovely lunch. Between the four of us, we ordered the seafood platter, garlic prawns, chilli prawns and a chicken salad. The other dishes were great but the prawns were INCREDIBLE!!! The views were also great. You can watch people water ski from the balcony. Highly recommended for lunch.
