After reading the reviews thought we would give this place a try. They have shut up shop and a for sale board up, never mind.

This is about 15 minute tuktuk ride outside Ao Nang center, but it was good to get out of the hustle and bustle one evening. You eat in the belly of what looks like an old pirate ship. theres also a patio/terrace for those who feel claustrophobic inside a ship belly. Oh yeah you can eat above deck. Tasty food... More

During our stay, we have visited The Boat on many occasions and each time we have been personally welcomed by either Laurent... More

The Boat is a newly (re)opened restaurant, with an energetic management, that delivers great food and an ambience that beats most if not all of the restaurants in the centre of Ao Nang. Being slightly off the centre, it's clear this restaurant made the right priority with quality over quantity. The restaurant seems to be frequented a lot by locals... More

The boat was a nice place to eat with a very unique style, and pretty OK food, but it's closed down now, and from the look of it won't be opening uip again any time soon... so you missed it. :-(

Hideous food served in a cool atmosphere. We went to the boat last night for dinner. The boat, and the location are cool, but the food was lousy. I ordered a duck confit, which was burnt to a crisp and served with instant mashed potatoes. My girlfriend ordered beef daube, which came out terribly overcooked, presumably to mask the old... More
