    Really lovely location. Wonderful and attentive staff. Food was amazing. Small improve would be when we arrived we were not sure if we had come through the correct door as there wasn't anyone in the foyer at the time. Everything else was awesome.

    Lovely last date night before we come a family. We had a great table with a lovely view across the lake and of Parliament House. Service was friendly, well informed staff, but not pretentious or over the top. We're easily able to cater for dietary requirements without any issues. Would highly recommend.

    When asked if we were celebrating that evening, we reply our 50th wedding anniversary. At the end of the night a surprise plate inscribed with 'Happy 50th Anniversary' with mini chocolate magnums was delivered.

    One of the most amazing restaurants in Canberra! Fantastic dining, service and atmosphere. Food was amazing, especially the basil cheesecake (menu changes nightly). Staff were attentive, friendly and knowledgeable.

    Been here a few times and always seem to get the table in the corner with no views. No matter how early I book nor what the occasion is.

About the restaurant

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.
