“Outstanding!”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

Thanks to a wonderful Christmas present from my Mum we finally ate at the Boathouse after walking past it so many times. We had the 7 course taster menu with wine pairing and it was simply outstanding!

The service was amazing, the staff are so friendly and the food is out of this world! Can't wait to go back!

“Top Notch food and service”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

This was our second visit to this delightful little restaurant and as per the first visit my wife and I selected the 7 course taster menu.
Each of the seven courses was brought to our table by a member of staff who took great pride in delivering the plates of excellence. Every fork full was a real delight and left me looking forward to the next. As this was a taster menu the portions were small but by no means did we leave feeling under fed, quite the opposite.
The drinks menu is as well thought out as the food with a vast range of Wines and spirits which must cater for all tastes.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to friends or family and will most definitely be back for more. Having somewhere like this on your door step makes living in Bangor that bit more special.

“a little gem”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

Had a very nice taster meal with my wife last night (5 courses), excellent and relaxed service, my wife chose the wine taster too with every meal, and every win was introduced and discussed which was a lovely touch. very nicely presented plates with a wide selection of dishes and tastes. Slight concern that the plates were too "busy" with flavours, so would recommend that they reduce and refine but overall a fantastic meal and some nice music in the background too. Very good value for a taster menu. Nicest restaurant we've been to in NI so far.

“Wow.. Great Night”
Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

We visited the Boathouse on 1st February.. The occasion was a surprise birthday party for a friend.. What a great evening. From the champagne and canapé reception, followed by the 7 course tasting menu. Everything was lovely.. There were over 30 of us, all served at the same time. The food was delicious and hot.. Service was spot on.. The Gin selection in the bar was a delight.. Pity, there wasn't time to taste more.. Thank you great evening..
