We were recommended The Boathouse by our Accommodation owner, Sue, from Marty's at Little Beach. We went for an early dinner on Saturday evening with our 3yo and 10 month old.
Our waitress was fantastic and I wish I had remembered her name so I could share with the owners how lovely we thought she was.
The food was absolutely delicious. We had mixed Oysters (that the 3yo ate most of), scallops, swordfish, and Salt and Pepper Squid for our entrees and mains. We were so impressed with the flavours and combinations of all of our dishes. For Dessert we had white chocolate creme brûlée, and the chocolate and vanilla sundae, both were amazing.
The view was perfect, the atmosphere was great, and we found all the staff friendly and helpful. The only thing that we could even remotely criticise is price of the oysters, the oysters are locally sourced but quite a bit more expensive that we pay in even some of the more exclusive restaurants in Sydney. We thought all the either pricing was really quite reasonable, We actually expected it to cost a bit more than it did.
We definitely recommend The Boathouse Restaurant to anyway in the area looking for great food, great view, and a great atmosphere. We will be back!

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.

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.
