We offer you eat in and take away service
Enjoy an idyllic location to eat breakfast or lunch by the water, pick up a take away for a picnic or during your walk in Ku-ring-gai Chase National park near Turramurra, or pull in on your boat.

We have weatherproof and open shaded waterfront tables and tables inside too so you can sit by the water in Sydney’s North Shore at Waterside Bistro whatever the weather.

Located within the impressive yet welcoming Empire Marina Bobbin Head in the pristine 

Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park,  our location is second to none.


Our location allows you to grab a takeaway on your walk/cycle/kayak or for your picnic in the park, on your way to your boat, when out on your boat,

or enjoy breakfast or lunch with us overlooking the water.


Our menu is tasty and generous in portions, and our coffee is created with love

by trained baristas.

Casual berths are limited but sometimes available to stay for breakfast or lunch and you can even pay a fee and stay overnight in your boat to attend one of our special evening events if we have availability.

As the marina is so popular though, we recommend arranging well ahead, not on the day of your visit.

We recommend you book these well ahead by calling the marina on 02 9457 9011.
