It is located right on Kata beach and so it was perfect to have a romantic dinner with my husband. The food (maybe we expected a little too much based on the reviews we read) was ok..we had better fish in a little diner nearby..

We decided upon the boathouse after a recommendation from a thai friend, we fancied a little luxury!

When we walked to the front area and flicked through the menu we were greeted by the head chef, who we spent several minuets talking to...... unfortunately we were dressed very casualy but he said this wasn't a problem and invited us to have a look around and see what we thought!

we decided to stay and picked a fabulous table right by the beach, the setting was perfect and people were letting Chinese lanterns go on the beach while we sat and enjoyed our meal....

The food was simply amazing! we had snails to start, then duck for main and lamb for main...... with apple pie and sorbet for desert!

throughout the meal the staff were very friendly and we received mineral water and freshly baked bread!

Just a totally amazing dining experience all for the cool sum of BHT5500 (£110)

Best restaurant in south of Phuket. Not cheap but all food and service is great. For special evening and invite customers this is best. Has a long history of cooking school and fine dining. Very recommend.

We tried their set 3 course lunch which is excellent value. We had prawns & sea bass whilst dining literally on the beach. Service was very professional yet friendly. We enjoyed the dining experience so much that we returned later that week for a 2nd time & had another wonderful experience. This time we had Vietnamese spring rolls followed by crispy pork green curry & a wonderful desert of tarte with homemade creamy ice cream. Their set lunch is a great way of experiencing the dining experience in a much cheaper way. As we were driving, their security guard outside was very attentive & traffic was stopped to allow our car to leave -little touches that add up.
