Our friend who lives in Boat Lagoon invited us to Hardstand: drive past Villa Market, it's on the right-hand side. Positive: 1. there is parking. 2. the outside terrace is quiet and you could have the port and yacht views. 3. Brief and good collections of food. Our friend mentioned their breakfast is pretty good: the bread, eggs benedict. Too... More

The biggest challenge was to find the restaurant! there are several small restaurants/Cafes nearby within the Boat Lagoon Marina complex and we had to ask quite q few people until we found the small sign and the restaurant. We were not disappointed! I ordered the special of the day - a lamb curry with Jack fruit in it, which tasted... More

Friends recommended the place for breakfast so we gave it a try. It hard to find if you're not familiar with the place but worth looking for. The service is friendly, the prices reasonable and the food is good. Big portions and great coffee is served. Thumps up for the handstand. We'll be back

This coffee shop cum eaterie is a good find. First class coffee and baking (croissants etc) and a lunch which will fill you up. The menu is varied with daily specials. Good and friendly service with a choice of seating inside or out. Highly recommended food.

The Hardstand has a nice quiet terrace, it feels like holiday to me when I'm seated outside. You can have sandwiches here which are good filled and the bread is good too, crunchy and with a bit of seeds (not the white tasteless Thai-bread :-) ). They serve breakfast until 11:30 so if you're around The Hardstand that time, try... More

As the name suggests, this cafe/restaurant is located right opposite the Hardstand at the Boat Lagoon. Though it is rather small, there is plenty of space to sit outside and enjoy looking at the variety of boats and feeling the leisurely pace of life around you. Many of the regulars here actually live on the boats moored nearby. They include... More

Been to The Hardstand several times. Good coffee, but the real highlights are the many breakfast choices and the sandwiches. The Eggs Benedict are superb. Friendly atmosphere and nice staff. Great weekly Bar-B-Q every Friday night with many people from the Boat Lagoon area.
