Overview

The Boat House has been the go-to spot for waterfront dining in Canberra for the last couple of decades. It remains a premier dining experience.

Chef John Leverink delivers impeccably plated modern Australian dishes with the freshest ingredients in elegant surroundings. Our iconic four course menu operates in the evening with a two or three course lunch offering during COVID. A front of house team keeps the floor running efficiently with an emphasis on friendly, professional, knowledgeable service.

The three private dining rooms are superbly presented with crisp white linen, crystal glassware and direct access to a lakeside deck and gardens. The atmosphere is further enhanced by floor to ceiling windows and a crackling open fire in the West End Room during the winter months.

The extensive wine list features a sizeable selection of Canberra region wines, great labels from Australia's best regions and an impressive list of French champagnes.
