“A must for people with food intolerances”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

This is a true Gluten free and lactose free restaurant in Malta. If you have any food intolerance, there is no reason for depriving yourself of a good pasta or pizza dish. This restaurant only serves self made pasta and pizza dough to ensure strict non contamination with any gluten. Moreover the pasta dishes are very tasty.

Location is unique by the water's edge. prices are reasonable and in line with other restaurants in the area.

“The first restaurant exclusively Gluten Free in Malta”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Under new management, recently refurbished The boathouse restaurant is now simply unique with excellent service. The staff is very friendly and the chef (who is sicilian) even came over to greet us and explain all about the gluten free food they are now offering. For the very first time since being diagnosed celiac, I was able to choose anything I liked from the menu. The best thing is that everything is homemade from the bread to the ice-cream. Above all the location and the atmosphere are superb. Highly recommended for anyone with any food intolerance or allergy.

“Great Food, Beautiful Place”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

Been at this place many times before, as the location is simply unique, you can't have lunch or dinner closer to the sea than at this place. This week we went for the first time this year, and noticed some changes in the menu and the staff. There is a new sicilian chef who came to say hello during our starters, the food was delicious. The chef made us some typical sicilian antipasti and then two different types of pasta as starters, main course we had fresh fish of the day. The service was excellent. But above all the balcony we were eating on was priceless, just meters away from the sea. Considering everything the bill was very reasonable and worth every penny. Well done to the boathouse restaurant, we will surely be back many times this summer.

“Nice location, good views, reasonable food”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

Ate lunch here and enjoyed being right next to the water, with good views into the bay. As it was winter the restaurant has plastic covers down, which were practical but which changed the atmosphere for the worse. Food was reasonable, with good sized portions. Staff were friendly.

“Nothing wow!”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

Well, it's one okay restaurant. Unfortunately the one never-to-do things in a restaurant happened. The wine we ordered was served mid-way through the starters, and this after reminding 2 waiters. Main course had 2 thermidor lobsters. Nothing out of this world. Overcooked.

Reasonably priced. I guess in summer the atmosphere is nicer as the winter months, it's closed in a plastic tent.
