Great location on the water. Enjoyed dinner and drumming on a Thursday night. Fish was delicious along with the variety of vegetables. The cauliflower was amazing! Be prepared for lots of people smoking.

The Boathouse is a place where locals and visitors mingle in an informal and atmospheric environment right on the beach. I already had excellent meals here two years ago, this year again it was a great experience, with a special mention for the fish and...seafood: splendidly fresh, cooked exactly right, not overcooked, and with lots of interesting and sometimes original vegetable side dishes.More

We were staying in Heavenly Bay, so this was very convenient for us, and we ate here several times, including on drum night. It is in a beautiful beachside position. Apart from pizzas on Sunday, the food format is a choice of mains with a...generous array of sides, freshly cooked and tasty. It is also a lovely place to sit for a drink. Sharon, the owner, does much of the cooking, and is a kind and friendly host. I have a rather difficult dietary problem, and she was exceptionally helpful (and successful) in catering for it. As with many similar local restaurants, the service is on the laid- back side, but very friendly. We particularly enjoyed the Sunday pizzas, taking half home for supper- they are enormous, with a large choice of toppings.More

We went to eat on a Wednesday evening when they had drummers for after dinner entertainment, and it certainly was entertaining! The food was mixed – the batter had fallen of my battered squid! It was a busy evening and perhaps the quality of the...food suffered as a consequence. It might be better to forego the entertainment and chose a different time to visit.More

Havng staryed in Castara for 14 nights, we tried most of the local restaurants and this is by the far the best. Their food is freshly prepared and the menu is changed every day depending on what the kitchen has on a daily basis. The...staff are friendly, the service is good. Every Wednesday they have the Drum Night which is great fun and very popular. Highly recommended as somewhere to go and spend time.More

Don’t have far to move from the beach to quench your thirst here. The home made Lemon Drizzle & Carrot cake was lovely (different ones daily) & African Drum night worth seeing.

During our week in Castara, we ate here once on New Year's Eve. Naturally, the place was packed, so we had the good fortune to share our table with 5 young people on vacation from Trinidad, which gave us a chance to chat a bit...with them. The food was good; a relatively fixed menu for the evening where you chose the main and the rest was just included. We enjoyed the atmosphere very much, since the bar/restaurant is right on the beach. Service was very friendly, despite the crazy amount of people there. To top it off, a group of gentlemen played drums to close out the evening for us. It was phenomenal. Make sure you check which evening they play and book a table!More

Drum night is busy but the food was good and plentiful and the african drumming was great. It's a very friendly place.

This beachside bar and restaurant was closed during the first week of our trip due to licensing issues but the reopened and we were glad it did. It’s a great place to enjoy a beer or an iced coffee and watch the frigate birds over...the sea and their evening meals (I had lion fish and chips!) were really tasty too. They even cooked up lobsters we had caught diving for us. Sharon was very friendly and full of local information and don’t miss the drumming and limbo nights. They can turn into quite a party . Oh yes and they do a pokey cocktail too.More

We always go to the drum night at the boat house when staying in Castara. The food coming out of the kitchen is excellent. I had a fab goat curry with a good kick. The main event is the drummers. These guy's & a girl...can really get the beat going. Highly reccomend while in the area.More

Yes! It is a walking distance. On your way to the beach house, there is a cozy coffee shop, some small shops that you can enjoy.
