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.

Pefecto! We loved everything!

- dined at Boilerhouse Restaurant & Bar on

Great location, great service, very good food and wine. Highly recommend

- dined at Boilerhouse Restaurant & Bar on

This is an amazing restaurant on every level. The service, food, ambience and drinks were all top notch. We had the Chef's Menu which gave us a good range of food at just the right pace and amount. Our favourites were the mussels, brussels and pavlova, but that was a hard pick as every dish was incredible. And the location of this restaurant at the bottom on the staircase with the most amazing views is hard to beat.

The food was fabulous, and the service exemplary.We'll be going again!

What a great restaurant to try mouth watering food. The service was exceptional and the food could be faulted. If you haven’t tried the restaurant then I would defiantly recommend.

The food was delicious, particularly the brussel sprouts wiht fish sauce and mint. Service was super friendly. It was my birthday and the waiter shouted me a glass of champagne. Highly recommend it. And beautiful location to go for a walk before or after!

My partner and I had a great experience at boiler house. The staff were very friendly, the food was delicious and the restaurant was surprisingly busy for a Monday. I would definitely recommend to friends and family.

An absolutely delicious and incredible dining experience

Amazing location with a sense of history and romance but surprisingly easy to access by car or ferry. Cocktails were so good and food delicious. The building is so nicely preserved with authentic industrial remnants. Have an adventure on Sydney Harbour and try the Boilerhouse

Beautiful and food location. You cant say any more then that. I believe the menu changes every month so it does mean if you like the food then you should come back as there will be different menu items next time. The quarantine station is excellent place where it is very peaceful and has so much history. On our night you could watch the ferries go by and the stars were bright. Service was outstanding and as mention the food was excellent. Must try is the Wagyu beef - if it is still on the menu.

The service was one of the best I've experienced in Sydney and the food definitely matched the service. The roasted cauliflower is a must!

We dined here on a Monday evening, not expecting the place to be overly busy, however several other diners soon arrived and the place filled nicely.
Staff were fantastic, quite knowledgeable of the menu and helpful with recommendations.
Being shared plates we opted for:
Spiced macadamias - a generous serve of spicy/ savoury - nice amount of spice too!
Oysters in a finger lime zest - fresh & tangy.
Grilled peach with buffalo cheese - this was interesting as it didn't seem the peach had been grilled at all, but who cares, we loved it.
Then came the barramundi with a paw paw salad. If you come here, order this, it's so delicious.
The rocket & parmesan salad was a perfect compliment to the Barramundi.
Next up was the lamb fillet, followed by a delicious fried cauliflower with a hint of fish sauce and mint - delicious.
We didn't need dessert, obviously.....
Having booked a Ghost Tour at Q Station for 8pm, the staff made sure our dishes were served in good time, but not at all rushed.
We would highly recommend The Boilerhouse as a lovely restaurant with attentive staff and delicious food. The location is a hidden gem of Sydney, set in the expanse of Q Station, Many National Park - steeped in history.
We do hope to return again soon, and save some room for dessert.

- dined at Boilerhouse Restaurant & Bar on

From the time you are transferred to the restaurant through the special surroundings of the Quarantine Station till the time that you are transported back to the top the experience is amazing.
We had 6 different plates- macadamia nuts, barramundi, pork belly, and kofta.
All dishes were delicious, but the 2 best were the mussels in a Cambodian sauce and the amazing cauliflower.... Never thought that I would rate cauliflower on the top of my choices.
The suggested white wine complemented our meals and added to a perfect night.
Thanks.. Can't wait to come again and try some different plates!

Had a fantastic arvo/night at Boilerhouse!!! Great venue to relax and chill out! Great views and loved sitting there watching the afternoon and ferries go by!! Also do a bit of history taking of the grounds.
And what was even better was the service and food at Boilerhouse! Everyone went above and beyond our expectations! Everyone was really friendly and helpful and the chefs did extraordinary! We ordered 4 dishes and 2 desserts and it was the best and soo tasty food we have had in a while
We will def be coming back to visit!!

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.

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!

We went to the Boilerhouse for my husbands birthday and everything was perfect. We started with olives, zucchini fritters and Betel leaves, yummo. Then we shared the Ricotta gnocchi, duck and barramundi with broccollini, wow what a feast. The service was excellent from the moment you arrived till you departed. The only comment i would say was the wine selection was not to my liking. Will definitely return.

An absolutely delicious and incredible dining experience

Sensational !!!! ( I really wanted to use caps lock here)
How have I lived in Sydney all my life an not explored 'Q (Quarantine) Station' precinct?
We were a little confused by how to access the restaurant but all was explained by the very helpful receptionist at the Boom gate/reception area.
As this precinct is very busy with conferences/accommodation and also the 'Boilerhouse' it makes perfect sense that guests are provided transport to their respective venues via a shuttle bus- SO allow a little bit of extra time to reach the restaurant for your table booking.

Food and service were sublime! Shared dining concept is a delight with treats such as spiced macadamias, crab in betel leaf, oysters, prawn toast with onion/capers, my carnivore dining companion raved about the steak, as a non meat eater I loved the variety of sides which I had as a main.
Loved the wine list - great NZ whites and fabulous Shiraz from Phillip Shaw in Orange NSW.
The staff were amazing and knowledgeable about the restaurants history, the menu and also didn't hesitate in very quickly and openly advising that the kitchen had an unexpected staff departure and hence meals weren't arriving as quickly as usual.
We will be back

Not the cheapest night out but certainly one to remember. It's a shame we went in darkness because the views from this lost corner of the harbour would be amazing and seldom beheld. Strange 'secret' location (complete with ghosts!) adds to the mystique. International standard food, delightful flavours. Just remember they are 'shared plates' - another word for small portions - so a couple will need to order 4-5 dishes.

Such a lovely location, nice atmosphere. The food was really good, gnocchi was sooo yummy! One of the dishes came quite a while after the rest with no apology but it’s a minor detail and did not ruin the beautiful experience. You should follow the recommendations of 5-6 dishes for a couple to make a complete meal.

Dined on 27th February and had the shared menu. We had the oysters,spanner crab,and then the smoked trout. All were delicious especially the crab. For mains we lad the lamb rump and the mussels with focaccia (unfortunately this came late but our waiter James made sure it was coming and went out of his way to fix it.)What a happy place , the staff are so friendly and obliging.Could not fault food or service, would definitely recommend it.
