Boat House is a nice place with good food and cool beers - and not expensive :-) but it is on a street corner with a lot of traffic.

The boat house is an attractive building just off Beau Vallon beach. The food is pretty good - not outstanding but not bad. The service is quite slow. On our first trip here a load of dirt fell on my food from the floor above. To their credit they did replace my meal quite quickly. The buffet is good value... More

don't bother stoping by. I tried it one evening and i as desapointed. A pour buffet, a limited choice and the salad were not even fresh. No veggies and too much fat... I am sure it is quite nice for a drink after the beach but... The staff is quite nice so maybe one day they ill improve the quality.... More

We stopped for lunch and were disappointed with the overall quality and slow service. They're known for their dinner buffet, so perhaps it's not fair to review them on the basis of lunch, but we don't plan to return.

I went there when official lunch time was over. No problem though, they prepared one only for me. And it was yummy! Also the price was very good - 250 SR (about 17 euros) for rice, salad and prawns. Besides a delicious dish you get very friendly and attentive service. Top!

Casual experience, with buffet of Creole cuisine. Good for a casual dinner without too many expectations on the food, which is interesting because Creole, but presentation and preparation can be a bit short.

Every evening the Boat House serves a creole buffet, also comprising a BBQ´ed chicken and a few kinds of fish, at SR 425. We found the food very good, in particular the deep fried vegetable mix and the BBQ chicken, but also the tuna in garlic sauce and in a curry. The selection of desserts was also good and I... More

We loved Boathouse and ist food! We came here for lunch and it was not so busy, may be that's why we were served not so slowly as usual on the island! ))) We had grilled job fish with very nice pumpkin Chutney, everything tasted just great. For our son we could order from the crepes bar, it was convenient... More

A good food joint serving crepes to fish and chips,with a little late service due to being understaffed. But makes up for the beach frontage,good natured staff and fantastic food.
