All aboard the Boathouse in Balmoral

The Boathouse Balmoral Beach2 The Esplanade, Mosman, NSW, 2088

I feel like the Boathouse is this place so many people talk about for the atmosphere and the relaxing feeling you get from your view of the water whilst you enjoy your meal. I must admit that going on a Tuesday morning at 8am definitely helped with getting the best seat in the place!

I must admit the atmosphere definitely had something special, even though it was a cool Sydney morning there was nothing quite like sitting so close to the calm sea. The food left me with some mixed feelings – From the menu, I went for the Quinoa and Coconut Bircher plus the Poached Eggs with a side of Bacon, Avocado and Tomato (I felt the need to splurge a little!).

The Eggs were cooked perfectly, mixed with the avocado smashed on the toast, the oh so crispy bacon and the juicy tomato all complimented each other to make for a stand out dish. It was the Bircher that I was a bit underwhelmed by, it felt more like a fruit salad and the bursting flavours I had tried once before just weren’t there. The coffee was creamy, the view was spectacular and the warm meal on a cold day all made up for the one dish that obviously had Tuesday-itis.
