Nice but service a bit slow

Nice enough pizza restaurant staff friendly but a bit slow on getting our bill. Had to ask twice then 20 mins to pay it. Pizza was good but over priced but I guess you pay for the location too

Despite the restaurant being busy we were seated immediately as a family of 4 with young children and given great service. The food as wonderful, I had the sea bass which was cooked perfectly and was an absolute delight. My wife had the risotto and she found it just as enjoyable. This was our second visit after a previous holiday... More

We tried several times to get a table with no success; no bookings were taken after half six. However once we were in it was lovely. The food was gorgeous and the waiters and waitresses were very attentive. Would definitely come again.

We came to Fowey for a quick Easter getaway and were amazed by its beauty and what it had to offer. However, on our final night we tried to book The Boathouse and it was confirmed by the person on the phone as somebody who worked for the restaurant as a firm booking. That day we were really looking forward... More

Discovered the Boathouse completely by accident when looking for somewhere to eat on holiday this week. It seemed moderately busy, with families and couples so we went in and were offered a table and menu by friendly staff who immediately took drinks order and allowed time for menu selection. Starters and main course (we had sardines and bruschetta for starters,... More

This restaurant is mainly Italian food with lovely oven baked pizzas but sometimes it converts to Indian food in the winter months. Both are excellent in their own way

Lovely surroundings with welcoming and connective staff! The food was also delicious. Can't wait to return seeing as it was the secound night reopening we thought what a success is must have been bringing back the Italian and Mediterranean menu

Went for dinner here yesterday evening. In the winter this becomes a "pop up" Indian restaurant. I went here last summer when it was a rather mediocre Italian. Boy is it a whole lot better as an Indian! Front of house service was rather brusque which was really my only criticism. food was great however, the poppadoms were lovely served... More
