What are you going to do when walking along the South Perth foreshore if rain suddenly threatens?
Here's a plan - walk into the lovely Boatshed restaurant and ask for a seat near the window for you and your friends.
Then ask for their wine list, and try either their sauvignon blanc from Margaret River or their cabernet merlot from the same region.

You've time to savour the bouquet, admire the colour and sip it quietly while admiring the view until the rain passes. The view takes in all the river from the Narrows Bridge to Heirrison Island, with the city in the background from the freeway interchange to the Causeway bridge approaches. A lovely view of a lovely river and city.

The food is good, too. Scout it all out with a view of coming back for dinner to admire the view of the city lights across the water.

This place fitted the bill for us after a very long walk around the picturesque waterside. The view was interesting, the service was friendly and I liked the Lime tart.

Went to the Boatshed restaurant for lunch today (Wednesday 22/08/18). On arrival we were impressed by both the restaurant's presentation and welcoming staff. We were given a table by the window with panoramic views across the Swan River to Kings Park, South Perth and Perth City.
For our meal we started with an entree of Garlic prawns with chorizo. The prawns were perfectly cooked and the flavours of the dish delightful.
For mains we had the market fish (shark bay saddleback snapper), potato frites and salad. We asked to have our fish grilled and this was done to perfection.
A delightful meal accompanied by a lovely Yerring Estate Pinot Noir with views to die for.

We were walking past at lunchtime and thought we would stop for lunch. Poor service and very overpriced lacklustre food. For a boatshed you would expect good fish and chips but the whole lot was nearly inedible. Cold soggy chips and overcooked dry fish with the taste of stale oil. Won't be going there again
