“Atrociously amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

If dinner at this restaurant was the only experience I will ever have of Singapore then I've found heaven on earth. The menu is very small, about 6-8 appetizers and 3-4 fish and 3-4 meat dishes which made the decision even harder to make because it all really seemed delicious. I had the bouillabaisse which was beautiful and the salmon for the main, and I finished it off with perhaps the greatest chocolate dessert I've ever had. A 66% dark chocolate with white chocolate in a terrine style. Out of this world! Cannot recommend it enough for any occasion from romantic older family or just an evening with friends. I recommend to first grab a drink on the roof which overlooks the Marina Bay and provides a splendid view of the Marina Bay Sands hotel and a great viewing point for the light show as well. Cocktail selection is also good. I really cannot recommend this enough!

“A delightful dining experience :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

The food is simply delectable and the music playing at the rooftop bar is pretty decent. However, credit has to be given to their team of attentive and affable service staff (CK- restaurant and Steve-bar) that made our time there a truly pleasant experience. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and will certainly return.

“... exquisite dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

My second visit to Boathouse affirmed the consistency of their quality service and food.

The restaurant's hospitality, attentiveness and sincerity were personified through the Maitre'D, CK and his team. Their professionalism and care of details had made our evening there for a birthday celebration so much more enjoyable and special.

From the brilliantly prepared food - we had the four course with wine pairing - to CK going the extra mile to cater to our requests, Boathouse has delivered for us an exquisite dining experience.

“Quaint setting, romantic ambience, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Was looking for a place to celebrate our anniversary with my partner and decided on the Boathouse because of its gorgeous colonial architecture, which gave the restaurant a very quaint and romantic vibe. We also wanted some place that was nice/almost fancy but not too formal, and the Boathouse offers that perfect in-between ambience. We visited on a Friday evening and had the 4 course set menu at $69++. Some hits and misses with the food items, the salmon appetiser was great because it was very fresh, but the Provencal fish stew was a tad too salty and fishy, while the bouillabaisse was just right.The red snapper was excellent and perfectly cooked. The chocolate mousse for dessert was pleasantly sweet and easy to eat, as normally chocolate tends to taste a bit too rich for me. The staff were very attentive, polite and offered first-class service, and were very knowledgeable and helpful. I would visit this place again.
