We were fortunate enough to have a mid week ‘ladies luncheon’ the Boatshed was spoken of very highly and we were not disappointed! The outlook was relaxing (and in some cases entertaining watching the beach goers floundering!) A pretty casual environment maintained by professional and experienced staff.
Our waiter was well humored, efficient and likeable. Service delivery unprecedentedly fast! Big surprise considering how busy the restaurant was. The Drinks and food were a masterpiece of presentation, highly recommend the chickpea salad and platter for 4, while they appear to be on the pricey side, the sheer volume of food does 6 comfortably.
Will definitely return.

My friends and I were at the Boatshed La Perouse for a birthday luncheon. We found the noise level to be excessive. Because the restaurant has glass windows and wooden floors and ceilings that reflect sound, we decided next time to go for Brunch when it isn't so noisy. The food was superb and the service outstanding. The views were wonderful .

Seems that some of the staff weren’t very interested in helping and it appears there were a lack of training. Bit of a shame since it’s such a great location. Food was ok, nothing extraordinary.

Bit disappointed to be placed on a table without a water view seeing that we were celebrating a 50th birthday. Service was hotpotch, we were seated less than a minute when a waitress asked us what we wanted to order 🙄
Another waitress serving us drinks gave us the wrong wine (she mixed up the Riesling with the Sauv Blanc. Shame wine is so pricey too. The mussels which we have had before lacked chilli and there were fewer of them. All in all lacklustre.

Such a great spot for a relaxed Sunday afternoon, late lunch/early dinner over drinks, watching the sun set. Seafood platter is great value, delicious and beautifully presented.

Good food, although the BBQ octopus shouldn't be called "baby octopus" when it isn't. The venue got really hot inside they need to invest in getting some ceiling fans.

A pleasant outlook over the bay, especially at a window table. We ordered lobster linguine and linguine marinara, both of which were tasty and a good portion. Service was a bit lacking, especially since the restaurant was almost empty. Closure at 8pm on a Tuesday night seemed a buit early & the meal was rushed as a result.

We went for breakfast, it was a slightly overcast cool day but the experience was so relaxing and serene. We loved the eggs Benedict with salmon and side of halloumi, strong latte and cappuccino. The view was excellent we could see schools of fish swimming!

The food was plentiful ( we had the seafood platter for 4) and pretty good. The only let down was the battered fish which was slightly over cooked. All in all the meal and service were good and we would come back. Some fans or better airflow would be nice as it was quite hot inside. I wouldn’t eat there on a day when the temperature is over 30.
The wine list could also do with some improvement. Get a good sommelier to look at it

Do the seafood platter. Everything on the plate was great. Nothing too oily or soggy.

The mojito was too sweet.
