“Such a let down”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

I had a meal her with a couple of friends. I had the bbq ribs. They came out and the tub of chips got dropped on me so the young girl took them back, also i sent the ribs back as they where cold, even the sauce was luke warm. I also asked the 'young' girl for a elderflower, that she didn't even know what it was. Not happy at all and i will not be recommending anyone too

“Don’t leave Portsmouth without visiting!”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

A pre-booked simple late lunch at The Boat House Café with 30 friends was the perfect end to our day in Portsmouth. No-one should leave the city without taking the Gosport Ferry (a great thing to do in its own right) and a short walk to this tucked away café with lovely décor inside, a great outdoor seating area beside the marina, and fabulous views of the harbour. The delightful owner organised everything perfectly for us. We only looked for it because we hadn’t noticed anywhere suitably cosy and charming on the main city waterfront, and we felt we’d made a real discovery – it didn’t disappoint.

“could have been so good”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

went out for a quick supper after driving down from London, ordered two glasses of house wine which was very good then had their fish and chips which was tasteless and soggy. such a disappointment after reading all the other reviews. Great location and a pleasant room but food needs to improve.

“Late Lunch”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

We had our son and girlfriend down for the day and decided on a late lunch in a nice setting by the coast. We had seen this place advertised and knew they served lunch until three and it was in walking distance so we gave it a try. The cafe bar sits on the edge of the water and overlooks Gosport Marina and is in such a great setting. The food was lovely and even though the service was a little slow we would definitely go again. Well worth trying out...

The Boat House Cafe is a natural focal point for both social and business purposes, and is a jewel in the crown of GosVagas attributes. Service and the quality of the cuisine has so far been exemplary. Fantastic views of the harbour and a relaxed atmosphere prevails both during the day and at night. I frequently visit, just to sit outside, have a delicious lunchtime snack, do the daily crossword, drink a coffee or two, and enjoy a cigar. All they need to do is give the tables and chairs a good overhaul and it will be perfect! Keep up the good work folks, and have a very successful summer season! I am spreading the word .......... but not too far - I don't want to loose my bench in the sun!
