We decided to splurge one night and have a fancier dinner during our holiday. As we were staying at the Boathouse we decided to try the Wine and Grill and it was fantastic.
We had 3 courses and matched wines including:
Entrees - Goong Saroong (prawns wrapped in angel hair) & Mushroom Fricasse
Mains - Lobster ravioli and chicken breast
Dessert - Chocolate Souffle and creme brulee
The food all tasted amazing- well balanced and seasoned.
The service was very attentive as it was low season and there were plenty of staff for the customers.
Definitely better than another nearby fancy restaurant at similar prices!

We always had wanted to go here, the location is great and the service was good, but the food was average for the price you are paying, maybe it was an off day!

Dinner for two at the Boathouse on a birthday night was perfect, we enjoyed Thai food at it's best with the beautiful backdrop of Kata Bay by night as a bonus. Wine selection was good and we enjoyed a fine bottle of red from Argentina. Atmosphere is very relaxing, food is tasty, colourful and well presented. We enjoyed the Boathouse experience so much that we signed up for the cooking course. This was a very good idea as we were shown the rudiments of Thai cooking by the restaurant sous chef, Mr Kampol Lohaphong who patiently explained each ingredient and also helped us with tips and tricks when we began cooking. The menu we cooked was extensive, well balanced and thoroughly enjoyable perhaps an even more in depth introduction to Thai food than our restaurant meal. All in all we recommend the Boathouse for any occasion.

The Boathouse is a wonderful restaurant. The staff are all very well trained and very friendly, the food is incredible and the setting is just beautiful- right on Kata Beach. In the evening it is beautiful to watch the all the lanterns being sent up into the sky from the restaurant. I've never had a bad experience here.
