Good seafood and great outdoor seating

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... read 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.

Mixed views. Dry chicken , ok squid. Took an age to get drinks. Our waiter was shocking. Won't be back. Perhaps just too many people go to Stanley so they don't have to try too hard.

We went here one Saturday at the beginning of February and were lucky enough to get seats on the balcony. In the past we had thought about eating here when we visited on weekends, but it had always been bustlingly busy. This particular weekend we saw a balcony seat available - a rarity! It made a huge difference. Overlooking the... More

Stanley Market has many places to eat all in a row along the front. The Boathouse is on the Right Hand end when facing them all. Having walked up and down we choose this as the food looked good. Not disappointed by the wait. The food was well cooked, presented and tasty. It did help that the sun was shining,... More

The Boathouse is one of many restaurants on Stanley promenade. They all seem fairly similar and my dining experience here was definitely on a par with the other places I've visited in Stanley. The food isn't cheap by any means, but again that seems to be the way with such a touristy place so I didn't balk too much at... More

We went on a beautiful day with clear views of the sea, we sat upstairs by the window and had an amazing view, the food was good quality at a reasonable price. The table next to us had a seafood tower which looked amazing I would definitely go back and order that next time. The food portions are of a... More

Right on the front of a promenade which is very pretty - good enough food - not brilliant but not bad at all - not cheap but Hong Kong is expensive. We went for lunch and it was well presented and good food. If you want a dreamy spot for lunch and watch the world go by this place will... More

A lovely sunny winters day to sit on the balcony with a crisp cold wine and some great lunch. Friendly service, nothing was too much trouble. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
