The Boat House Restaurant & Wine Bar - Port Douglas

Authentic Ship's Wheel at the top of the spiral stair case

Shop 52 Reef Marina (upstairs)
44 Wharf Street
Port Douglas
07 4099 4955

Long term locals will remember this venue as FJ's in the late '80's
and later as Oscar's Restaurant.

Now it is a swish restaurant and wine bar with stupendous views over the marina, harbour and rainforest clad mountains.

We went for lunch on the third day:



Hahn light beer ............. $6
Gin and tonic ........ $16
Cape Schanck Pinot Grigio ........... $36
Lamb Tartlet with cucumber yogurt, lemon and paprika ........ $6
Flash fried calamari with paprika, lemon and pink river salt ....... $14
Butter fried Spanish Mackerel with steamed broccolini and bok choy ......... $30
Mixed green salad with olive oil and balsamic dressing ...... $10

Total $118

Comments:

The stand out was the Mackerel, it was simply gorgeous and was head and shoulders
over the usual for lunch in Port Douglas.
At $118.50 for a Thursday lunch we thought it a tad expensive and looking at the drinks bill, the gin and tonic was overpriced and we would have liked to have seen a house wine under $30.

The Reef Marina is bouncing back!
