WE HAD THE 4 COURSE DINNER AND IT WAS BEAUTIFUL. THE SERVICE WAS UNBELIEVABLE - IT COULD NOT BE FAULTED. I RARELY LEAVE TIPS - BUT BECAUSE OF THE VERY GOOD AND FRIENDLY SERVICE I LEFT OVER $20 FOR THE STAFF. THE VIEW OF THE LAKE AND SURROUNDS WAS GREAT. WE LOVED IT.

Delicious food that looked incredible, however I felt that the portions were slightly too small, and I left hungry.

Booking here was straightforward to do online, with instant confirmation SMS reminder the day before. The menu concept is excellent and easy to understand. All the food was really delicious and portion sizes were perfect. Wine pairing suggestions were helpful, and nice to have a carafe option! All staff were really friendly and helpful. Overall a wonderful dining experience!

About The Boat House

A room with a view There is no better way to celebrate a special occasion in Canberra than with dinner at the Boathouse by the Lake. Water views are hard to come by in this city, but the Boathouse has you covered. Located on the edge of Lake Burley Griffin, this popular spot is a consistent winner with the locals, and it is not hard to understand why. With a stunning gourmet menu featuring options that range from Wagyu beef tartare and enoki mushroom rice paper rolls to Moroccan-spiced barramundi, you know that the view is not the only thing that will delight you and your dining companions. You have the option of dining a la carte, or you can leave the decisions to the chef and indulge in the stunning six-course degustation menu, which comes with matching wines. The thoughtful service guarantees a smooth and enjoyable experience, so you can sit back and enjoy the view. Best Dish: cured duck breast
