The Boat House
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. Their 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, emphasising 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.
