Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This establishment has changed ownership and this is reflected in the quality of food and variety. A reasonable wait to be served but a longer wait to receive food which was disappointing and only after I asked where our meals were. Not busy at the...establishment at the time so I question why the slowness? Probably will change hands again soon.More

Three of us enjoyed excellent food, wine and service. We all had different starters and main courses , and they all exceeded our expectations. Very good value for money and the staff were excellent.

This was our first visit to The Boathouse. If we get back to Guernsey, it won't have been our last visit! The menu was comprehensive and the dishes themselves were absolutely delightful. Most importantly, the staff were extremely diligent and attentive, also very helpful and...friendly. I have never eaten a better pizza anywhere.More

The worst experience, long wait for food, we were OK with this but my friend is a diabetic, I asked where the food was, we were sharing Muscles and Chips, they arrived I ate one and I asked what the smell was (other friends had...scampi) when I realised it was our food, I stopped, most of the shells were closed ( my friend ate about 3 because she was hungry..I complained obviously, the deducted the Muscles, I said I'm not paying for the bread or the small glass off wine..They did put up a fight..The most disappointing fact was they didn't take ownership, even though the whose restaurant could smell it at this point..Our other friends were put off their but did pay for the scampi (4 pieces) ..Never again I'm hoping I'm not ill tonight.More

Had two visits to the boathouse in a week. The first was okish. Prawn cocktails over priced and very small portions.. Had lasagna what was very nice but had to send it back as it was cold in the middle. Second visit no lasagna on...the menu as they had ran out. Had the rib eye steak, well the size of the steak was pitiful thin chewy small and awful. Was an absolute rip off for the price. Never again. Other dishes did looked ok but will not return.More

Great situation on the harbour front. Not a large restaurant but managed to seat all 7 of us as walk-ins, can’t complain at that. Great choice on the menu, tasty local dishes, good portions. Thoroughly recommend

Good food but only three vegan options which is really good for Guernsey in fairness. I had the pizza which was great and the staff were very friendly.

We were looking for lunch with a sea view and found the Boathouse .where we shared a delicious chowder and goats cheese salad. The service was prompt and came with a smile. A lucky find.

I had lunch with my teenage son at this restaurant on 22nd June 2023. It was a lovely location, fast service and great food which I think is very reasonably priced. A lovely experience, thank you.

We came here for dinner one night and after the usual "have you booked" followed by a "look" we were given one of the empty tables at the front. My chicken was OK but my wife's stroganof was not only disappointing, but seemed to be...a new invention of a traditional dish.More

We have dined at this restaurant several times when we have visited Guernsey in the past. Sadly our visit this year was disappointing. We felt there were definitely fewer seafood dishes available than previously and the food was average. The waitress who served us kept...hovering near the table to check on if we'd finished, which we found intrusive and made us feel rushed and uncomfortable. As The Boathouse is part of the Christies group of restaurants we expected a lot better. We will not be dining there in future.More

Lovely view, great food, a shame they no longer do the seafood platters seen in photos a few years ago. Good money for value.
