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 a breakfast pizza, and sweet offerings such as banana pancakes with whipped date butter, cinnamon and walnuts, or breads from Melbourne's famed Phillipa's bakery. For lunch and dinner, dine share-style on mezze and wood-fired pizza, or opt for a hearty main of Tuscan braised beef with black cabbage, or grilled fish with seasonal fresh salad. Gary's cheesecake or The Boathouse banana split is a guaranteed sweet finish.
The Boathouse has a 150 seating capacity along with an outside courtyard, and caters for everything from corporate events to product launches, fashion parades, weddings, birthdays and baptisms.
