Tripadvisor did it again, directed us to a wonderful new restaurant. The Boathouse opened in December and by the number of customers they had at 6-00pm on a Saturday night it has been well and truly found by locals and visitors. The food is fantastic, service wonderful - what more could you want. We have been looking for a restaurant like this in The Bay for years. I hope it doesn't become too popular otherwise we may not get in. Highly recommended. Well done.

The food was amazing and such a beautiful spot. The salad was probably the best combination of flavours that I have eaten for a while.

We only went for coffee and to try the place before booking in for a meal. The service was quick and friendly. Coffee was excellent, but the vanilla slice was just a little sweet for our taste. The venue is being renovated and will be absolutely outstanding in a week or so. This is a must do on our bucket list.

A remarkable change to the ordinary cafe that occupied this site many years ago. Small but Interesting menu, but a very good wine list. Young and attentive staff, great view and quality food and wine.

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!
