Chilled out lunch spot in chilled out Stanley

For my taste there are a few too many bar/restaurants in Stanley who try to talk you into their establishments. We happened upon the Boathouse on an extremely hot day and retreated into the cool of the first floor terrace. Deliciously fresh lime soda and perfectly cooked fish and chips hit the spot... read more

Tried this place on a Sunday evening, got there around 8:30 pm. Service was OK, place has a nice feel, location is gpod with some bayside views for many of the seats. Food was OK but not brilliant. The best was the assortment of seafood as a starter for 2 people which i fully recommend. The main courses (beef and... More

We regular come here for a brunch of fish and chips or a bucket of sea food when in Stanley. The upper floors have the best views. And the staff are friendly and look after you. See you again soon!

Been here years ago and came back for the mussels and clans in white wine garlic sauce. Everything was amazing. Bri sandwich and Greek salad were great as well.

Went for lunch with a friend, great view, overpriced wine and a varied menu but heavily focussed on seafood. Ate shrimp spaghetti and got violently ill afterwards. A guest at table next to us also sent a dish back. Lovely setting but now I'm sick as a dog in my Hotel room on what was to be a short shopping... More

We went to the Stanley Main Street for lunch on a sunday afternoon and this being the first one on the strip and fully seated even at 2:30pm attracted our attention. We waited to be seated and the waiters were really busy winding down on lunch bills and it took some time for them to clear a vacated two person... More

Spent a very enjoyable afternoon drinking wine and eating Western Style seafood at the Boathouse. The restaurant is three levels, so try to sit on the top couple floors for the view. Or perhaps the first level for the people watching. The food is tasty, if a bit ordinary, but quite satisfying nonetheless. The view is outstanding.

The food seemed good quality, although a little expensive. The location is nice. Our waiter was a little impatient; his opening greeting was 'last orders at 9pm' and was visibly unimpressed at being asked to take a group picture. Not sure I would recommend dinning here as it didn't feel very welcoming.
