“Nice lunch at the boathouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Lovely lunch at the boathouse , my husband had the spider crab which was lovely if not very messy, and I had the lobster and crab pasta. Nice atmosphere in a lovely part of the harbour.

“Simply amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

Finding a proper seafood restaurant (not a chippy) is pretty difficult anywhere in the UK. The Boathouse is a real seafood restaurant where fish is beautifully prepared with inspiration and attention to detail and the service is courteous and professional.
We have had a great evening and we look forward to go back next time we visit Newquay.

“Nice Views Fresh Lobster”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

Great Food, with amazing views across the harbour friendly service.

We was greeted to the entrance by some lobster swimming in the pen outside This place does not look much from the outside, but once you enter it has a lovely cosy atmosphere. We had starters and mains and we cannot fault the food. We was greeted to the entrance by some lobster swimming in the pen outside.

Would eat here again

“A lovely evening and amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

We were recommended to visit here by a local and we were not disappointed. We called and booked and managed just to get a table on the same day.
This place does not look much from the outside, but once you enter it has a lovely cosy atmosphere.
We had starters and mains and we can not fault the food. The service was great and we felt very welcomed. The Cullen skink was a lovely starter and the Pollock fillet and ribeye steak was lush. We were a party of 4 adults, very impressed and will return when we go back to newquay.
