The Boathouse Shelly Beach
Time Out says
Giving us one more reason to board the ferry up north
This spot is tucked away right around the bend from beautiful Manly Beach, and it's a triple threat: kiosk, café and restaurant in one. The Boathouse duo of Pip and Andrew Goldsmith added this spot to their existing trio of eateries in Palm Beach, Balmoral and Whale Beach. Wood-fired ricotta with honey, cucumber and buckwheat; autumn ravioli of duck, potato and rhubarb; and the famous Boathouse beer-battered flathead and chips are highlights of the café menu.
The venue is open all day for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and it incorporates the previous Shelly Beach kiosk, which was given a polish and reboot – it now boasts an open kitchen, a tropical-tinged proportions and a wood-fired oven to bake seafood and bread to succulent perfection.
