    Been dining here (both breakfast or lunch for several years) family owned, very friendly service, great outlook over the water and of course the food is always excellent.

    Even though we’d made a reservation, there was not a table set up for us - the surprised staff scrambled to put tables together, seated us and forget about us for 20 mins. A bottle of water finally arrived and orders taken. However two of the four meals brought to our table were incorrect but were quickly sorted. Food was average - I wouldn’t hurry back.

    Poached eggs too firm, scrambled eggs boring and beans dry

    Lovely location, easy parking (weekday lunchtime) friendly service and good food and coffee. We had the prawn burger and it was delicious and filling.

    We had fish, but it was tough. After we told the waiter about it he consulted the chef and said that it should be as served to us. I ate mine but my wife left most of hers.

    We dined on Mother's day where the menu was limited to what is normally offered on their website. We discovered to our disappointment after we left the café that we had been charged a higher, incorrect amount for what was listed on this menu for the addition of bacon to one of the plates. We were also disappointed to find that the bottle of prosecco listed on the wine list found on line had been replaced on the day with a far more expensive alternative. Clearly this was a case of taking an advantage of the customer and cashing in on Mother's Day.

    We were seated outside as per our request, however after being there for only 5 minutes all of the water from their outdoor roof poored onto us and drenched us. They didn’t offer much assistance at all. Very disappointed in the service.

About the restaurant

Coffee and uninterrupted views

Few things can beat the picture perfect scenery that you get at The Boatshed Cafe and Bar - except maybe their chilled chia porridge washed down with a green smoothie and a latte. In fact - nothing can beat that combination. Set on the Narrabeen Lake this cafe allows you to enjoy eggs your way in an uninterrupted unique setting, surrounded by bush and the beautiful lagoon. Every chair in the cafe has a view of the lake allowing you to watch the kayaks glide across the water as you sip on your morning coffee. Open for breakfast, lunch and private dinner functions The Boatshed Cafe is a spaciously designed venue that's great for family gatherings, coffee with friends or as a place to perch with your pooch after a morning stroll. Start your day off on the right foot with a visit to The Boatshed.

Best dish: chilled chia porridge
