Had a great lunch today at The Boathouse. Lobster salad was great as was the tuna tartar. Nice bottle of Pinot Grigio THB 2200 very reasonable. Sat overlooking the ocean and had a relaxing time. Staff in the restaurant are some of the best in Phuket. We visit this place a number of times each year in the off season... More

Glossy and seems to value style over substance. The decor has been revamped since my last visit several years ago, but the food didn't really live up to its top billing. It is, at best, a decent international restaurant, although service was average.

We enjoyed a fantastic and romantic dinner, sitting on the terrace in first row to the beach enjoying the sunset. Very good dining experience and good wines. We can absolutely recommend this for others wanting to have a good dining experience at Kata Beach. Jens Christoffersen, Denmark

The location and setting of the Boathouse is amazing, a little disappointed that that the food and service didn't match. We chose the Thai set menu thinking that it would represent some of the restaurant specialities but unfortunately we were very underwhelmed by what we received. The food was nice but not outstanding or worthy of the price tag associated... More

Boathouse Wine and Grill is bang on the beach and ideal place if you want a romantic night out. They have a good collection of wines and live music performance every evening. Good place to go for a romantic dinner date.

Went there for our first wedding anniversary. The location is defenetly worth a visit but during the night we had several issues. Firstly was really hard to order as we were asking information about specific french dishes and all three waiters that we asked were unable to give a description or explanation of the dish. Once we ordered and got... More
