“Slow, lousy service.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Slow, lousy service. Overpriced. one hour to serve a simple fried fish meal. Breakfast soggy toast, weak tea and runny old eggs. Go next door to Steamboat Restaurant.

“Lousy place.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Have eaten here once and will not go again. Ordered the lamb chops and got some sort of stew, that was very unappetizing.

Service is also slow.

“Great fish, lovely location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Sat out on the beach and had great food on outr first night. At these resataurants the fish is laid out and priced - you pick what you want and then they cook it for you - beautifuly! Great value - a huge plate of prawns, and a whole grilled fish - plenty for 2 of us for about £10. Can recommend and I would go back.

“Great location - right on the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Sit with your feet in the sand and enjoy some delicious seafood. Boat Haus also has in the past had a giant TV screen showing Cricket matches that have been on whilst we have been visiting. The seafood is highly recommended and comes out fresh and tasty!

“Poor service & choice”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

Took forever to get breakfast, not a good selection and everywhere smelt of fish, which encouraged the jackdaws.
