Welcome to The Boathouse on Blackwattle Bay. We love all good food, but we are especially passionate about Australia’s wonderful array of local fish and seafood, freshly caught every day. Oysters are one of our obsessions.

And while you are exploring our daily menus or simply sharing a plate of oysters in The Boathouse Bar, you can also enjoy magical views across Blackwattle Bay to the Anzac Bridge and Sydney Fish Market from our historic boathouse home.  You might even spot a few Sydney rowers gliding by.

It takes just 10 minutes drive from the City centre, or a water taxi ride to our door, to experience this spectacular flip side view of our amazing city. It gets better year by year; we’ve been enjoying it for 22 years, so far! 

happy new year


We hope you enjoyed the festive season, and wish you all the best for 2019.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Boathouse again soon - long summer evenings are a great time to enjoy our sweeping views across Blackwattle Bay.

Australia Day is always a great day for dining out in Sydney and we are open for dinner on Saturday 26 January, lunch and dinner on Sunday 27 January, but closed on Monday 28 January.

And then in February we have Valentine’s Day, Thursday 14 February…with special sitting times of 6.00 pm to 8.15 pm, 6.30 pm to 8.45 pm and then 8.30 pm and 9.00 pm. No set menu…just choose from our usual fantastic a la carte menu which changes day by day. You can book with The Fork or call Jaime on 02 9518 9011.
