    The food was good and service was good, though we had to ask for cutlery. The outstanding thing is the view, especially on wild and windy day like we had. It was great.

    I organised a family party of 20 for my daughter's 18th B'day. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome. It was such a great setting with a crisp, sunny, gorgeous day and magnificent views of Botany Bay. Food was delicious, and the staff were so friendly. It was really nice and nothing was too much trouble. I will say that looking for a staff member with an iPad was a challenge at times a to get additional drinks s the restaurant is always busy but overall, can't fault The Boatshed at LaPa. Always a pleasure eating there.

    I used to enjoy coming here and wanted to bring family that were visiting from New Zealand. It was a busy Friday lunchtime and also working in hospitality I can understand the pressure that comes during service. Once we were seated, we were asked if we wanted water by two different waiters. This never came and I asked when we placed our orders. We also had to get the attention of 3 staff to place our orders as no one would ever come back. Being a cold winters day, the heaters were on out on the patio. We asked if there was anyway to turn the one off that was directly above us as it started to get quite warm, we were told it wasn’t possible then I asked if we could move somewhere else where it wasn’t directly on us. The heater was then able to be switched off. I try not to write reviews where this isn’t much good to highlight but I felt the service was really lacking on this day and am disappointed that a favourite waterfront restaurant experience has been tainted.

    Whilst the location is very good, being out on the deck on a cold and windy day away from the heaters was uncomfortable. Also with the wind, the draught came up under the exposed floor boards. There are gaps between the blinds which allow the graught to come through,

    The Boatshed is a great place. The food and service is excellent. As I wear hearing aids I find it a little noisy in the main part of the restaurant and would prefer the front area. Highly recommend the Boatshed.

    We love the location, the venue is aesthetically beautiful however, the food and menu is basic at best and you cannot add or make changes to your orders. Also, the coffee was unfortunate. Your staff are lovely though!

    The main meal of fish and chips was wonderful although one order could feed two people as it is large. The octopus an haloumi was great. The food was served very quickly, however you get the feeling they want you to eat and leave so it all felt quite rushed. We booked a table for 6pm and whilst eating our mains were told the coffee machine was being turned off (7pm) so we knew there would be no dessert or coffee! It is above average prices however this goes with our economic climate and the serves are generous!

    Pleasant atmosphere getting eventually somewhat hectic but as a repeat visitor, one to be expected. Food was not as expected, octopus salad was served cold and the Boatshed burger overcooked, hope the quality can be returned to that of previous visits. Table was reserved, however our wish to sit inside in the quieter setting was declined ?

    Nothing like before, very poor service, lipstick marks on glasses we end up using disposable cups waiter stuck her fingers in the glasses sadly very disappointed because we use to love going there not even going to mention the noise level or the ambiance, they opened a section with picnic tables and mostly bench seats.

    Deep fried seafood was beautiful- great calamari and chips and also the fish and chips. Unfortunately the rest was really bland and super expensive. Service definitely didn’t fit the price tag. Beautiful view though

    The food was great but the ambience on a winters night with wind whistling through the gaps in the side awnings was unpleasant even with the heaters. Not enough heating. To be fair, on a summers night it would be quite different I guess. In winter however, they could eaily move diners into the more protected area of the restaurant (which they had not on the night I was there) and heat that area.
