About The Boat House

Surrounded by private parkland overlooking Lake Burley Griffin, The Boat House is the ideal place to relax and enjoy award-winning dining. Escape from the city life of Canberra and enjoy stunning lake views, with a dining room of rich décor, an open fireplace, white table linens and ambient lighting. Waterside dining calls for seafood, as a seasonally changing menu has been created to offer locally sourced produce used to create stunning dishes like hiramasa kingfish, daikon, sake caramel and snake beans; or apple-glazed pork tenderloin, pear, parsley and radish. For the main, delve into miso Humpty Doo barramundi, with ginger carrot, zucchini and wild rice, or beetroot tarte tatin, onion jam, buffalo curd and leek; before lemon myrtle meringue, aniseed, wattle seed sable and lemon curd.
