My partner and I decided to give the boathouse a go and it was just amazing! Could not fault it what so ever. From start to finish it was incredible. Food full of flavour and cooked to perfection.

Our first visit, to celebrate my husband and sisters birthday and it didn't disappoint. Each course was visual masterpiece which had the taste buds exploding. We will definitely return!

My wife and I visited The Boathouse for the fourth time. As on our previous visits we were not disappointed. We had the 7 course tasting menu with wine pairings and yet again it was surprising, innovative and absolutely superb from start to finish. The service was friendly, efficient and well informed and perfectly contemplated a great meal. This place... More

This is an excellent restaurant. It is located in the very centre of Bangor's marina. I would certainly recommend the tasting menu. It surely lives up to its reputation as a daily surprise of exquisite dishes made from local ingredients, cooked with great skill and presented beautifully. There is an option to have the matching wine selection, which matches perfectly.

This was a faultless experience. Fresh, local ingredients. Both the maitre'd and the chef fully attentive in explaining each dish and looking for feedback. This felt like a private dining experience and the main course Lamb was truly outstanding. The food was packed full of flavour and there was impressive texture range to keep the palette guessing about what's coming... More

I took two work colleagues here recently and booked a table at short notice which wasn't an issue for them. After looking through the fantastic menu we decided on the tasting menu which took us almost 2 1/2 hours to savour all 7 courses. Each one was a delight with extensive local ingredients expertly prepared with skill and imagination. The... More
