DETAILS

Despite being co-owned by one of Australia's most recognisable chefs, the boathouse retains a friendly, casual ambience that moves seamlessly between lazy brunches and intimate dinners. Charming decor references country Australia, with natural radial cut weather boards, a stone fire place, tin sidings, a polished concrete floor and a ceiling of exposed straw. Dogs are welcome to reside beneath al fresco deck tables.

FOOD & BEVERAGE
The Boathouse boasts the kind of menu that draws crowds for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. Mornings see multiple incarnations of the humble egg, including our popular Avo n Egg, and sweet offerings such as buttermilk pancakes with caramelized bananas & honeycomb butter. For lunch and dinner, dine share-style on mezze and wood-fired pizza, or opt for a hearty main of Wagyu burger, served on a brioche bun with bacon, onions and pickle, or beer battered fish & chips, with tartare & pickled homemade pickled onions. Gary's cheesecake or Matt’s cracking tiramisu is a guaranteed sweet finish.

FUNCTIONS
The Boathouse has a 150 seating capacity along with an outside deck area, and courtyard. The Boathouse caters for everything from corporate events to product launches, fashion parades, weddings, birthdays and baptisms.

Dinner at Boathouse last week with the entire family. Definitely a good choice for a family get-together. Very kid friendly! Nice food, good service, amazing location. Will be back to give the breakfast a try.
