Boardwalk Cafe @ North Lakes Hotel
Coffee and Cakes
Multiple dates availableDuring this time, our kitchen is closed and will only be offering our "coffee and cakes" menu.
No food served between 11 and 11:30 while changing from breakfast to lunch. Would suggest having some toasties or wraps in the cabinet for this in between time as an alternative to cake.
Coffee is good.
Our little group meet there at least twice a year
The menu needs changing & upgrading
It is odd you have to go outside to order coffee and / or desserts. The staff did happily bring our order in to us.
Wonderful place to sit and reflect . We found only by looking for a halfway point for friends to met . Little did we know we found a true Gem . Beautiful settling , excellent food and the smiles from the staff said it all . Will definitely be back . Thank you ladies for looking after us
We really enjoyed the food. Prompt service. Helpful staff. Fantastic wine
Look forward to coming back. Lovely venue, great service
Lovely place for Sunday breakfast. Meals came out quickly and were tasty... I would go back again.
The food was average; not overally hot, vegetables were just a few stalks of broccolini, and some "fancy" small carrots, the mash was just warm. I had the stuffed chicken but there wasn't a lot of "stuffing".
It also took too long for the meal to be served.
I probably wouldn't dine here again.
The staff are gracious, personable and helpful and the food was delicious. Timely service and being able to watch the bird life on the lake, added to an altogether lovely day.
My food was cold and served on a cold plate. Shame. It would have been lovely warm. Lovely venue but a shame you have to go outside to order drinks and food when dinning inside. The staff were very pleasant but we had to ask for plates and glasses to be cleared, when the next course was brought to the table.
Fantastic View, Great service Great Menu Selection and Lovely enjoyable food
Food was terrible! Calamari was inedible, worse than frozen calamari from the supermarket and expensive!
Lovely spot to sit but won’t return because of how bad the food is.
The meals took longer than expected however they were good when they arrived. Prices were very affordable and the venue itself was very pleasing.
Lovely view and atmosphere friendly staff. Food took a long time to come out and we got ours after people who came behind us. We had to get waitress Togo chase it up. Only 4 pieces of ham on the whole pizza
Really well looked after, beautiful place to enjoy lunch with friends. Everyone's meals looked great and mine certainly tasted really yummy.
We had a walk around Lake Eden to enjoy nature and the various wild life.
We did book for lunch as it does get very busy at lunchtimes.
The table was outdoors in the Cafe area overlooking the lake.
Our food choices were delicious and service friendly and helpful.
We will be regulars with our visitors.
Pleasant atmosphere. Great parking good food, average service.
The food was nice but the staff did not know the menu and the food took a while to be served.
Only one little negative was my steak had hard gristle but cooked right and everything else was all good.
We waited an hour for food and it 3 of the 5 dishes come out cold.
Waited over an hour for food to arrive at the table.
Lovely quiet spot over looking water.
The 3 staff were efficient & professional but definitely need more staff. So there was quite a wait for the food but it was worth it & such a nice place to spend some time if you're not limited
staff assisted us to a more suitable table, very helpful and friendly
3 out 0f 4 meals were enjoyable, my prawn and chilli pizza was overcooked dry and very little topping of 8 slices only 5 had a single prawn was dry and just not what expected, because overall ok
We waited nearly an hour for our breakfast which was disappointing and there was no apology. The food was good but two dishes were cold 🙄 don't know that I'll go back.
The staff were friendly and helpful, and the food was very good and priced well. The decor and location of the restaurant is very good. It is wonderful to sit and look out onto Lake Eden and the surrounding parkland, and to see the wildlife. I thought the restaurant may need more waiting staff to serve and to attend to the customers, as there was an extra wait for our lunch to be served.
Wonderful place to et and catch up with friends, right on the edge of Lake Eden
First time at the board walk restaurant, we had a good value meal in a clean, well presented restaurant.
Thy food was reasonably priced and had no complaints from our party.
Had a lovely, relaxing after work drinks and dinner.
We had a really nice night out here - a table of eight friends. The food was delicious and very generous. The meals all came out together. The staff were very friendly and efficient.
I had a beautiful lunch with my family, the view of the lake was so peaceful while eating
An attractive restaurant with a pleasant lake view. The food was excellent and plentiful, the staff were very pleasant, but the service was abysmal.
The meals for the 5 people at our table were ordered at the same time. We were warned that we would have about 30 minutes to wait for our meals, which was fine.
However, there was about 5 minutes' gap between the arrival of the first two meals. It was at least another 10 minutes before the next two meals arrived. The fifth meal (the same menu item as the first meal) arrived about 30 minutes later - after the rest of us had already finished our meals.
In earlier years the service had been excellent.
The service had been very poor on our previous visit, so we had been hoping for an improvement this time.
As much as we enjoy dining at the Boardwalk Cafe, I doubt if we will go back again.
Ordered beef burger, fish and chip, grilled fish of the day and carbonara. Unfortunately the beef burger was dry and the rest was ok. We had a nice window seat overlooking the lake. I think we will go again for a drink only, just because it’s nice to sit by the lake on a nice day.
We really enjoyed our visit to Boardwalk cafe. It was a large group event and the staff were very accommodating and looked after us well.
The food was great and actually came out quickly for a large amount of people. It is also in a lovely location overlooking Lake Eden.
Highly recommend for a nice atmosphere and a big food selection at a reasonable price.
The food was very disappointing, overcooked and not good quality at all
Food great, service good. Coffee cold. Nice view. Will go back
3 of us ordered steaks cooked medium and unfortunately they were cooked well done and were not nice. We did not send them back as it took 20mins after everyone else at our table received their meals already and didn’t want to wait again. Very disappointed for the price that we paid for that steak. Unfortunately we won’t be returning.
I had the salmon Buddha bowl and appreciated that the meal closely reflected the menu description, ingredients were fresh and tasty!
We waited too long to get our food. None of our food came together. We had finished eating our breakfast before we received our coffees. No breakfast menu for children. Totally disorganised staff seemed confused and the 2 men seemed flustered. It was such a shame because it's a beautiful setting. On open table it said if we didn't arrive within 15 minutes of our booking we would lose our booking and yet when we arrived on time we had to wait for our table to be ready!!! It works both ways!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great overall and thank you for installing a ramp at the car park entrance. My friend can now easily manoeuvre her walker up to your Cafe, which is her favourite.
Had a good lunch and meeting up with friends. The lake atmosphere added to the enjoyment.
My family and friends have dined at Boardwalk Restaurant many times since it opened and have usually enjoyed our meals. However, recently we have found the food is not the same quality and four out of the six of us who dined there for lunch on Saturday 26 June have said they will never eat there again. The calamari and fish meals were considered terrible and tasted like they were made from frozen product.
