The Boathouse Café and Bar is simply a 'must-do' Waiheke Island experience. Take in the expansive ocean views from our incredible beachfront location while enjoying our fresh, tasty food in a vibrant and fun atmosphere. We combine two of life's great pleasures, being by the ocean and enjoying a delicious meal in the company of good friends.
"So close to the sea you
can taste it."
Why The Boathouse? Well, to us that's a place where the sea and the shore meet. A place where, once the boat is safely stowed, one can look back on the day spent, share some time with friends and whanau and give thanks for all the sea has given.
"Any closer to the sea, lifevests
would be compulsory."
Wherever possible, we source our ingredients locally including award winning artisan products. We serve fresh seafood, free range bacon and eggs and our pizzas are made right here, everyday. Our menu includes a variety of meat & vegetarian dishes and be sure to check out our daily specials board for our chefs creations of the day. Our bar specialises in local wines and beers brewed on the island plus a fine selection of other wines and beers from around the world. Allpress coffee and a range of home baked muffins & scones are available daily.
"Sometimes the crashing waves
can make conversation difficult."
"Came here for Breakfast our first morning as it was one of the only places open that early and we liked it so much we came back everyday we were there. Great ocean side location with great views. Good food, great Coffee and even better prices."

"Went to The Boathouse Café and Bar for a second time for dinner last Friday and it was even better than the first time which was also pretty incredible. Oh and I forgot to mention, they make the best coffee on Waiheke, if not in Auckland."
