Staff were lovely. Food was good and restaurant not crammed with tables. We both had fish which was beautifully cooked. Dessert was a trio and well presented.

My wife and I went to the Langmeil Wine Dinner on 23 March. It was stunning in every way. A great welcome when we arrived. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. The food was as wonderful as it is always is at The Boathouse and the wine matching with each course, the story of the winery and each wine, was fascinating. To... More

Really like this place, the guys are very friendly and create art in the kitchen. We meet friends here each year and highly recommend it. This is fine dining so portions are limited but ample when ordering multiple courses.

Hi Food Fiends, Bit of a Birthday treat on Friday, at the Boathouse Bangor. Me and wee mummsie, popped down there, for a set lunch. Fine dining can be a bit lifeless, and on that day it was just us. The girl serving was great, quite reserved which is very fine dining , but very engaging and professional. I have... More

Not easy to find, in an unlikely spot, but very easy to park! The seating area is "cosy" but rather too many tables for a good ambience to prevail. The seating area is dark. Nearly all diners were using lights from phones to read the menu. The service was attentive and certainly knowledgeable but the family details of the wine-producers... More

what can I say....just home from an absolutely gorgeous meal in the Boat House restaurant in Bangor and it was amazing!. From the moment we walked in until we left the attention to detail was perfect. The maitre d' was friendly, knowledgeable, particularly about choosing wine, and very attentive without being over bearing or intrusive. The food was really beautifully... More

We visited here mid week on a recommendation and we were truly blown away. This is the type of dining experience you would expect from a high end restaurant in London or further a field. It really is hard to believe that food this good exists on our tiny door step. FOOD: We chose the 7 course taster menu without... More

This really was a #lastminute booking as we arrived to our normal Sunday evening eatery to find we had missed last orders for food! Now if you have read any of my reviews you will know that I am really fussy and hard to please lol. So not to let my hubby away with just going home, I quickly rang... More
