Food is nice but not cheap. Wait staff is pleasant but not attentive (for a restaurant of this class).

In Thailand, you come to expect a bit of give and take due to cultural and language difficulties. In fact this is part of its charm. However, when you are paying $200 per head for dinner I think you have the right to expect a little more. The Boathouse was a sad disappointment due to poor service alone as the... More

The location is without a doubt stunning with direct access to the beach and cozy decoration. The food however can use some refinement. When you read the menu there's too much of a difference with what you get served. The trio of rock lobster is indeed a trio but the taste is not very uplifting. However, the basis is there... More

The food is pricey here and we went for just a drink after dinner elsewhere! Cocktails were very good and value for money! The view is fantastic and at the time it was quiet and serene with people sending lanterns in the sky from the beach!

The Boathouse is fine dining in serene surroundings a few metres from Kata Beach. It's the best. Best cuisine, wine service, & surroundings that you could wish for in a romantic dinner, or even a special dinner with friends.

We were staying at the Boathouse and having eaten at the restaurant there before it seemed like a good idea to continue that plan. The food was simply top quality with excellent service - we did eat elsewhere one night be wished we hadn't bothered. Wines and cocktails there are excellent too.

We came across this restaurant by accident and being a family with elementary school kids we got there early and got one of their best tables. When presented with the menu we (read: adults) had a hard time deciding what to eat. Everything on the menu looked amazing, albeit expensive for Thailand, but we decided on duck breast and wagyu...

Being in Kata we decided for a dinner to celebrate anniversary. I would say like this: food was nice (but small portions) however much too pricy. We don't mind spending money for good food but we definitelly found better restaurant in Kata with more delucious food,better atmosphere and for half price. The view to the beach is nice and the...
