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.

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.

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.

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.

Gorgeous setting to walk around d the grounds before dinner and look out over the harbour. Took mum here visiting from the UK. It’s a really impressive place to show visitors. Restaurant is modern and classic. Delicious share plates so you can try lots of dishes. Great wine and service. Definitely recommend

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 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.

Easy parking, easy shuttle from 'reception' and simply divine food and beverages! The new duck item on the menu is a must, however we were thrilled with everything - food, service, location. Glad we had the voucher, as it is expensive, however for a 5-star meal for a special occasion, this would be acceptable for most on the North Shore (known for being expensive for non-locals).

I was with a "North Shore local" that has lived here for decades, and she never knew this delightful Accor Hotel existed (nor did I). Will be back!

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!

Fantastic experience, great to come over on the ferry.
Tried a mixture of entree’s, mains, and deserts and each was high quality with many flavors in them all.
Loved the mussels in Cambodian curry, Steak and desserts.
Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a night out to explore the many dishes on offer and share.
Outstanding

Great environment and fabulous food - with the discount, it really is exceptional value. Arrive early - and walk down to the restaurant to maximise the enjoyment of the location .....and if you are up to it - walk back up to the car to walk off the delicious dessert! (There is a bus for those who prefer not to walk though!)

We had such a wonderful experience at the Boiler House. Each dish was absolutely delicious, made with care and finesse. The staff were courteous and professional. They knew just when to bring out the next course but were never pushy or hovering.It’s an amazing place to go for a special night out and offers very good value for money.

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.

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 !! :-)
