A wonderful location with an excellent outlook. The menu, food and wine list are both very worthwhile and the staff among the best we've ever had.

Food was nice but the restaurant was very small and cramped. This was because it's very popular and was super busy at breakfast time!

My husband and I decided to go for a Sunday drive and ended up in Tea Gardens at lunchtime. We saw the Boatshed and thought we'd try our luck. Even though they had quite a few bookings they fit us in. We ordered a dozen ponzu oysters, the Thai fish cakes and bruschetta. It was all delicious especially the oysters.... More

Hi BeechFamily83, We are glad to hear you had a great time and enjoyed your experience. Unfortunately, we can't take praise for this lovely review as it is, most likely, meant to be written for The Boathouse, not The Boatshed. We are a restaurant and don't have accommodation :) More

Not that helpful when we want to pay separately and staff could have been a little friendlier. Coffee cups now smaller but same price.

We ate here on a special occasion. We were unaware that they were having a special 7 course tasting menu. We are not big eaters, so normally wouldn't go for this, but were pleasantly surprised by the serving size and flavour. I am a bit fussy with some flavours, but found each course to be delicious. Overall, I was most... More

The café is in a wonderful location. We mainly enjoyed light breakfast style meals and coffee. The staff and their service was good, nice laid back atmosphere and while we were there, same customs each day.
