We were looking to have a brunch somewhere and wandered upon this place. It was quite busy but we managed to get a table. We both ordered the eggs benedict which was quite good and eggs were cooked perfectly and the smoothies were very good.

We stopped here for coffees,but really, we should have looked for somewhere else. The service was bad, we had to wait to order, as nobody was interested in taking our order. Then, when our iced coffees finally arrived, they were in plastic cups. And the drinks were only just passable. Definitely will not come back here.

Food is cold, expensive and just plain blah for what you get. Coffee isn't what it used to be. Service is painful and long plus they dont clean up off the tables quick enough so sometimes you have to do it yourself.

Barista made coffee was tops. Staff were attentive and friendly. The setting was very beachy, trendy and comfortable. Lots of tastebud tantalising cakes and a great lunch menu. Situated in a breezeway the Boatshed is a great place to relax, chill, catch up with friends and enjoy the views and the ambience.

Ridiculously overpriced for average quality breakfast. Very average for cost. What was served was acceptable. Service is delivered with answers by staff who like looking down rather than to you.

Inefficient system to place order...queue snaking out the door! By the time the order is placed you've had enough! Food average, coffee on the cold side. Disappointing.

Lovely place. Only had coffee. The food all looks good be sure to check the board & note the surcharge public holidays & weekends. The average rating is only because I didn't order food. That's up to you :-)

Busy cafe with superb marina views. BUT just not worth the waiting time and bad customer service. I was there with some friends just for coffee and got a table close to the coffee serving area. Waited a total of 40minutes (we were busy chatting away before so we didn't really mind as we understood they are busy) But when... More

We reside in Darwin and have been to Boatshed multiple times. We haven't been in sometime so took the family for breakfast. It was disgusting! Our meals were obviously pre-prepared tasted so bad we could eat to be charged $100 for 2 adults 2 kids including a weekend surcharge for inedible food added more disappointment. Not to mention the floor... More
