OK, I was optimistic just after 6pm on a busy Saturday night asking if the restaurant would take a reservation for 3. To my surprise I was able to get a table at 8:30pm. So we went and had some drinks and talked in the outdoor bar of the Regatta Hotel. The place was humming with people everywhere and a... More

For $87 we had an entre, two mains (ravioli and steak) and two alcoholic drinks. The food was lovely, my partner said his steak was perfect. Portion sizes are a bit smaller than usual but in my opinion just the perfect amount to fill you up (you won't feel ripped off for what you get). The venue is lovely, the... More

We have been regulars here for ages and have always loved it. Our family went for dinner on Sunday for Mother's Day and it was lovely...though I noted that the chips were not up to their usual standard and the all plates were minus any garnish. Unfortunately, when my husband and I returned for dinner on Tuesday night it was... More

Great Service, friendly staff who really knew what they were talking about when describing the steaks. Nice ambiance and plenty of space, so if you're with a large group it's a nice place to visit. Only negative feedback is the cream/white chairs in the restaurant need replacing asap as they are all grubby and very badly stained. Does not reflect... More

We had a late lunch at the Boatshed on a weekday, so the restaurant was uncrowded, and the service was prompt. The dining room is modern and attractive, with lots of glass and wood, and an open kitchen overlooking it all. I had the fish and chips, which was a generous serving, with good fries and a small green salad.... More

Have been here for dinner on and off over the years (post floods) and the standout feature is it's consistency - at a good standard. Parking is difficult because of the neighbouring big box liquor store - so just as easy to park up the road near the park. Dining room is huge yet still has an intimate feel. Tables... More

Arrived on time at 5.45 last night, hostess very uninterested, rushed off in front of us and was waiting at the table for us to get there. Dumped us and left us to be seated. Looked like we were an imposition. Meals arrived promptly, too quick really. Wine list extensive and expensive. Odd to order ...taste, half glass or full... More

I expected much more. Food was OK and service slow and lack lustre. Staff in the open kitchen looked disengaged and floor staff unmotivated. It was high quality steak, but not cooked as asked. The wine list is great. We did not have the patience to wait for sweets service.

The restaurant is attached to the beautiful Regatta hotel. We went in a large family group and had a really nice evening. There is a decent wine list, and great cocktails. They specialise in steaks and these were beautifully cooked, but there is also a wide selection of seafood, chicken and other meats. Highly recommended

We were part of a family group of 19 and were seated at two adjacent tables quite early, at 5:30 pm. The large room was virtually full by 7 pm and the noise level fairly high so this is not a place on a Saturday night for a quiet romantic meal. That was not a problem for us because we... More
