“Fantastic”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

I'd heard so much about this place over the past few months so decided to take my friend here for a birthday lunch. It was fantastic, we had a table at the window with a great view, mind you not a bad table in the house, staff were attentive, laid back and casual, there's nothing I hate more than overly attentive staff who don't leave you alone, anyway they were great here. Food was just lovely, non fussy and beautifully presented. We had the calamari and tempura prawns, both served on a wooden board (v trendy!) both dishes were very tasty, the fries were lovely and also the salad. We thought good value for such a lovely place to be honest. If we hadn't have run out of time I'm sure we would have scoffed a pudding or two. Can't wait to go back for dinner, the sharing plates look very interesting, can't wait to try them. Thanks Boathouse, glad to know you're there, The Bay definitely needs you and although I would like to keep you a secret I should really share. PS this would be a very lovely venue for a special occasion.

“Beautiful venue and meal”
Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

What a find! Located in a beautiful location and tastefully decorated this place is fabulous. The menu is great - try the '3 pigs' board as a entree. They catered well for our small children, even having a 5.30pm sitting. The staff were very attentive. This place is a real gem and we're already planning our visit again next year.
