Cuisine: Contemporary, Modern Australian

Escape to this beautiful retreat in the heritage grounds of the Sydney Harbour National Park. 

Fresh and modern Australian cuisine, served in a surprisingly creative location! The Boilerhouse Restaurant & Bar is housed in the original boiler house building from the days of Sydney’s former Quarantine Station. Now refurbished into a uniquely styled restaurant, the Boilerhouse can be enjoyed while dining indoors in the mezzanine or relaxing in the outdoor terrace which has an incredible atmosphere of natural surroundings and overlooking one of the most magnificent views of Sydney. Al fresco dining is a must on a good weather day!

There’s a range of wines by the glass, beers and ciders available from the Engine Room Bar to accompany your meal. Gather close friends and family and enjoy a leisurely dining experience on the water’s edge like no other.

Getting Here: As the Boilerhouse Restaurant & Bar is located on National Park land, there is limited driving on site. We offer free parking at the entrance of Q Station and a complimentary shuttle bus service to escort you from reception to the restaurant. Please arrive 10-15 minutes before your booking to allow time for this process.

Could be a really cool venue, food was beautifully presented. Good to know that you are required to take a shuttle down to the restaurant that requires a bit of a wait so factor that into arrival time. Staff didn't seem very happy and could have been a little more attentive.

Beautiful food, excellent service, and the ambience of the restaurant was great! We brought our 4 month old baby, and the staff were very accommodating, and she was able to fall asleep with no fuss, even though all the tables were full!
Thank you for a lovely evening, we will definitely be back.

Great meal and great staff. Some quite interesting food, set within a historical part of Sydney's North. Was great to visit on Halloween, with a lot of people dressed up to go on the ghost tours of the Q station. Will definitely be back again!

Great food & service. Gourmet style presentation & ingredients. The dinner menu was a range of tapas or entree sized servings to share with your friends. Nice for a special occasion. For a Sunday night they were quite busy.

I highly recommend you to my friends & love that you're expanding your network of restaurants. THANK YOU !! :-)

We had a lovely evening at the Boilerhouse. A very special part of the Quarantine Station with an industrial vibe and welcoming staff.

We had the chef’s menu and there was a huge quantity of food with about 8 or nine generous tasting plates. Plenty of seafood, including kingfish, and king prawns, zucchini fritter, Brussels, chargrilled asparagus and ending in a cheesy hanger steak.

Leave enough time to get the shuttle bus that will take you from the carpark to the restaurant.

We had a brilliant anniversary dinner at the Boilerhouse restaurant.
Greeted with a friendly smile by Will as we arrived he was across our booking details and had us seated promptly. We were looked after by the wonderful Natalie who explained each of the menu items and the wine list. the service was exceptional and the meals just amazing. We would highly recommend the Boilerhouse for any of your special events or just a casual weekend lunch or dinner in a very unique location at the Quarantine station.

Had the Chefs Menu which was good balance of flavours and variety and filling. Good selection of drinks available. Service was friendly and not pushy.
Would like to go back in the day time and have breakfast/lunch and explore the beautiful surrounds and the history.

We went to the Boilerhouse Manly and the experience was awesome. A scenic drive up North Head, although it was dark but you can still see the amazing skyline on the way up to the restaurant. Great food and fantastic service. I've taken groups of friends there already. All credit to FirstTable. Thank you!!

Food was superb, and the staff low key effective and friendly. I liked the venue, it had a good atmosphere. With the heaters on, we had a wonderful experience on a cold rainy evening.
Be aware if arriving by boat as we did, that the gates at Quarantine station are locked well before the dinner service at the Broiler house, so best phone ahead to ensure someone is there to let you in.

This was our second visit to Boilerhouse and while the flavours were slightly different, we couldn't fault the tenderness of the steak (truly melt in your mouth) or the flavour of the barramundi. We shared the duck starter which was a delicious morsel and the roasted strawberries with coconut for dessert - Yum! The Manly Spirit botanical gin was a treat.

Lovely evening spent here after a dinghy trip in from the boat. Very special and can’t wait to bring our overseas visitors here, followed by a night on the boat.
Scallops starter a huge success. Preferred the barramundi to the swordfish and my partner loved his pork. The chocolate fondants were nothing short of heavenly. And all sloshed down with a Phillip Shaw red wine. Simply perfect! Oh and did I mention the great service? Can’t wait to revisit!

What a lovely spot just outside of Manly. With the courtesy coach taking us from North Head into the Quarantine Station it was a lovely night from start to finish. The sunset we got on the drive in was worth it alone, followed by friendly attentive staff that aren't over the top and delicious food.
Highly recommend the Angus Rib!
Already organising to go back in a few weeks time for a 40th birthday party!

A fun adventure to find,
Of the shuttle bus kind,
The Boilerhouse was
So lovely because,
Of the historical walls
With the stories it recalls,
Of the smiling staff
And the prices that were half,
The delectable food
That put us in the mood,
The beautiful wine
And cocktail of mine,
All hit the sweet spot
At 6 o'clock.
Thank you First Table,
We'll be back when we're able!

We were a table of four for lunch on a Saturday. It is a perfect venue for lunch, sitting under the gazebo. The food and service were fantastic. Thank you for such a lovely afternoon. We even packed a beach bag and after lunch we had a swim and spent time on the beach.

It was unique experience having a dinner at Boilerhouse. Accessing by micro bus into this heritage property is fun and different, kids loved a lots of photogenic spots for Instagram posting, food and service are fantastic, we thoroughly enjoyed this experience.
We seated outside area, which is better and much brighter. Inside tables are nice as well but it may suit better for couples but there are no outside views.
I realised that there is casual dining area right next door and still you can have a similar dishes ( mains & desserts) + more casual food like burgers etc.
I might try next door next time as well.
There is a nice little beach right in fron of the restaurant. Next time I shall bring Bikini and towel, too!

It was a delightful experience dining at the Boilerhouse. The ambience of the heritage buildings, the location right on the beach, and great food was a winning combination. The steak was melt-in-the mouth, and the pavlova was both unique and delicious. Great service too!
