Superb setting, great staff & lovely food at quite reasonable prices. My wife & I booked for the sunset dinner, a set 3 course menu ( 2 choices) at a reasonable 900Bht per head. The food was lovely, I had sat says & scallop as starter, braised lamb shank ( could have done with maybe some rosemary seasoning) for main & poached pear & ice cream for dessert. All lovely & perfect portions. My only gripe was that they seem to charge around 400bht for a local beer unless they charged for the bread they brought us. All in all god excellent, beverages well over priced

Dear Aussiepomcouple,

Thanks for your superb review and I am really happy to hear that you have
enjoyed the sunset menu. Also thanks for the rosemary comment, we'll have a
look and check with chef if we need to add some more.
However, I do want to clarify that our local beers are at least half of the
price you mentioned. I will ask you to please check your bill again and do
get in touch with me should there had been a mistake in the posting and we
will refund you the money. Bread in our restaurant is
complimentary along with many other homemade treats.

I hope to be able to welcome you to the Wine & Grill again soon!

My e-mail is eam@boathousephuket.com.

Yours truly,
Santiago Lopez
Executive Assistant Manager

You might think that this restaurant just has an amazing view on the beach and sunset to offer along with average food, but it is actually probably only truly good restaurant in Kata — or maybe Phuket. Everything was super good and fresh and the wine list is pretty impressive. Service was impeccable and very friendly. We had dinner there probably three times has we stayed three nights at attached hotel and have never been bored with the menu. Call them ahead to book a table outside with the best sea view you can get, you don't want not to get that when you arrive there.

Delicious food in a wonderful setting! We had a fabulous evening here, seated with a perfect view of the sunset. I would definitely recommend a visit. The food is more expensive than other places in Thailand but no more than a standard meal in the UK and well worth every penny! You are really well looked after and they even provide a taxi service to and from your hotel.

Perfect way to celebrate our anniversary. The view over Kata beach at sunset is amazing. Service was spot on(even picked us up and drove us back to our hostel) Food is delicious, at first I thought the portion size was going to be too small but I was stuffed by the end of the 3 courses. Great selection of wines although we opted for cocktails instead. I would highly recommend the Boathouse if you're staying close to Kata beach.
