The Boathouse was recommended to us as the best bar and restaurant in Phuket. We had a big family celebration so we thought it was the perfect occasion to try it out. Being low season there were only a few people dining but it's a wonderful location overlooking Kata beach with palm trees and patio doors to shield the wind. The staff were delightful, friendly and could not have been more attentive. Just five cocktails came to £35 so I realised this wasn't the place for dinner with three young children unless money is no object. It's a shame it's very overpriced menu does not cater for those of us on a budget. I am sure the food is good but if I wanted London prices I would stay in London. Maybe more guests would try it if they brought down their costs a little.
