Popular but could still do better

Boat House is quite popular and gets crowded often for dinner time when they serve only Creole-buffet table at around 30eur per person. It's quite ok but in my opinion bit high in price. They made excellent cocktails what we tasted few times. This restaurant is lacking fans from ceiling and it was... read more

The food was good but nothing out of te ordinary and a little overpriced for what it is. We had crepes and they were not great although the other dishes looked better.

We tried the buffet and the food was so delicious and tasty specially the mangos salad. I also loved the band. I would just recommend adding more items to the desert items and adding shrimps dishes to the menu in general.

Best place for some good creole food! The buffet is the spot to try and taste the different fish and meat dishes, the deserts are delicious.

Pulled into here on my day off and I was not disappointed. The service was good, and the food was fresh and tasty. Lots of local dishes and some others that I am not even to sure what they were, but also very good. It was a little pricey but overall worth it. Great location, right across from the beach,... More

Very good authentic Creole cuisine prepared with local ingredients, freshly cooked. Every night at 7:30 p.m. they do buffet dinner for 425 Rupies. There is a big variety of different curries, BBQ fish, vegetables, salads, rice, potatoes and desserts. It is eat as much as you can, which is very good value. Very busy place. Staff was very friendly and... More

The food here was great. It was a shame we found it towards the end of stay but glad we did. We went there for lunch twice and the food was great. Well priced and tasted good. The staff were very friendly and they have a range of different food but not too much that you don't know what to... More

We went there on a sunday as most of the other restaurants where closed. They do buffet dinner every night. Good food but most of it was too spicy for my daughter. Boat house is understaffed and it was busy. We waited so long to get the drinks menu but then once this nice waiter took our order things were... More

One issue, the food isn't tagged so you don't know what you are eating in the buffet...can be dangerous for people with allergies!
