Had breakfast there with family, great food and nothing too much trouble. Nice entertaining views onto the creek watching the water activities. Recommended.

Thoroughly enjoyed dining at The Boat Shed Bar. Staff were welcoming, efficient and looked after our large table really well. The food was great and the evening enjoyed by all. Thanks for a great night out. Couldn't have asked for more.

Loved this place. Great atmosphere, good food and service. You can have a meal or just a drink and sit overlooking the paddle boards on the river.

At a recent trip to the Gold Coast we decided to stay with a friend at Currumbin. At the suggestion of a local lady Lisa from Oars Galore we decided to have afternoon drinks and an early dinner before heading home for a rest. The barman (think owner) was one of the wittiest people I've met and nothing was a... More

We stay at Currumbin a few times a year and it's always interesting to see what has changed at the Boatshed. On our first visit this time, the gas was being worked on so only light fare was being served in the restaurant (prepared by the sister cafe business nextdoor). Didn't really matter - it was a lovely day, a... More

Great location. However the food is unusual and not very nice. Strange combinations. The service was friendly. Lovely view of the river obscured by really dirty blinds. I couldn't recommend this restaurant. I guess there is a reason it was totally empty while next door was very busy.

Went for lunch - don't know if it's changed hands or not but there used to be a much more exciting and diverse menu... It's turned into a menu similar to every other place now... Eg there used to be things like blue cheese soufflé..which was excellent...shame. As it was we wandered in and found somebody at the bar who... More

Terrific lunch on a Saturday, making use of the location. A real boat shed which puts you literally feet from the water of Currumbin Creek. Friendly staff impressed from the start and a small but complete menu. The fish was great and some interesting salads made for a great lunch. Music on a Saturday afternoon encourages you to linger over... More
