“Nice setting but needs better food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

I seemed invisible for a while but when service arrived it was pleasant. I had Italan soup which was more peppery than flavoursome . Expensive for what it was.
The view is good and watching half the clientele move outdoor seats to avoid the smoke from the smokers they allow provided added entertainment but really there are much better places to eat in Queenstownn.

“A wee gem”

Lunch at the boatshed cafe was great. Food was really tasty, service was spot on and the coffee was excellent. Watching James interact with everyone was a pleasure - well done. Highly recommend the boatshed!

“off the beaten track!”

Service & food excellent! Off the beaten track but very accessible and near to town, and I think we were the only tourists.

“Great Service, great food, incredible views.”

One of my favourite spots in Queenstown for a coffee and some breakfast. Friendly staff and stunning views and not too mention the great food makes this a popular spot among locals.

“Awesome View !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

Stopped by for lunch after we were recommended to come here by a local. The view over the lake is really something special. Food was really good and very reasonably priced. Our waiter was very knowledgeable when we asked him on things to do around Queenstown and also made one of the best coffees i've ever had !
