We were looking forward to our meal at the Boatyard and walked down the beach, in the dark, avoiding crabs and other sea life on the beach. We arrived and were seated. My partner asked what the special of the day was or what fish they had and they informed us (after we had been served our drinks) that they... More

When you are on a summervacation, what do you want more than sun, sea, beach, good food and drinks? This is all combined at the Boatyard for an honest price! We stayed at the Kantary Beach Resort and walked several times (+/- 250m to the left) to the Boatyard to eat. It's simple, but good. We enjoyed it very much!

It was low tide at night so the walk was easy the lights from the Boatyard lit the beach up sufficiently. Great Penang carry, even better Green... More

We recently had weveral lunches and dinners at the Boatyard at Kantary Beach. The history of the place makes it interesting in itself. In addition the staff is very friendly and the food is excellent. Dig your toes into the warm sand and enjoy.

We were staying just up the beach and it was a short walk along the beautiful beach to the restaurant, Starters of satay and pork canapes (minced pork on toast) were great and tasted fresh. I picked the fish that i wanted from the choice in an... More
