The food was excellent, service good and ambiance very luxurious. Having lunch on a boat is different and there was no swaying! Extensive wine menu. A great place for a special occasion.

Faultless restaurant in a great location on the Ipswich waterfront. Everything about the service was designed for customer satisfaction as only the French seem able to do. The wine list is extensive , the food perfectly cooked and the menu is inspired. We turned up on Valentines evening , the restaurant was full but the staff were very efficient ,... More

A horrible , miserable , rainy day in Ipswich was lifted with a wonderful lunch on this stunning restaurant boat. The interior and design is really classy with a wonderful French feel. The lunch at around £15 for 2 courses and £20 for 3 is fantastic value for money. Presentation of the food is second to none and the service... More

We found the choice of menu a bit restricted and nowhere near as interesting as their sister Restaurant Maison Bleu in Bury St Edmunds. The staff made us very welcome and the atmosphere on board was good. We were disappointed not to be served the "little extras" such as an amuse bouche, pre dessert and petit fours that elevate a...

This is one of the most consistently good restaurants I have ever dined in. The Pate was exceptionally good ( made by the Chef) and the seafood gratin was beautiful. The Dover sole was perfect, all beautifully served.

Description
Within easy walking distance of the town centre, Ipswich's most original restaurant, II Punto, is an antique Dutch customs gunboat, moored along Neptune Quay. You can relax in its wonderful atmosphere and its polished brass ambience. From a quick snack for lunch on the upper deck to a romantic dinner on the lower deck, it is the perfect place for an evening on the sea front.
