Walking round Stanley Market can be tiring. And you are not quite sure what you are buying. The Boathouse stood out from the picture menu cheap cafes and Costa Brava-style Britpubs around it, looking elegant and confident. A Plateau de Fruits de Mer type place, advertising just that, as well as mussels, clams and prawns. We chose the Gambas (king... More

Great seafood served in a lovely setting. Try a little French Rose with great shellfish on a terrace overlooking the water. Nice service. My favorite place for lunch while shopping Stanley Market !

After reading a review from the Guardian on top seafood restaurants in HKG. I had to try this place and it didn't disappoint. The bucket of mussels were suckulent and full of flavour, the prawns were amazing but my fav dish had to be the prawn jambalaya! Loved it...wasn't cheap but well worth the money!

I was a bit dissapointed of this restaurant which seems more tourist restaurant. We will choose another eatery next time in Stanley. Salmon ravioli was served cold and the taste was plain thou it seemed home made??? Vegetable tart taste was ok but the tart base was ready made and dry. I would hope more like home made quiche style.... More

Finally had a chance to try out this restaurant even though it had been in existence for many years. The restaurant was very clean and we were seated on the 1/F. When we made the lunch reservation, we requested for a table by the window. However, when we were being led to the table, the sun was really strong and... More

Great location at Stanley Bay. Ordered seafood as a starter and ribs as main course. Simply finger licking good. Great views on Stanley Bay. Staff (some originally from The Philippines) was friendly and very relaxed. Suggestions: 1) Ask for a window table (indoors) or make sure to have a table on the terrace overlooking the bay. 2) Make sure to... More
