I had the best piece of fish I've had in my life here. The whole meal was absolutely outstanding. The only downside was that I was too full to then try the after 8 brownie, which sounds incredible, but it gives me an excuse to go back. Wouldn't hesitate to go back, or to recommend to someone.

It's a beautiful location and a lovely place to sit and watch the beach and sea. Could imagine it could be quite noisy if filled with lots of children, but the upside is it is child friendly. Wine was good too!

Ate trio of seafood to start and then chicken caesar salad. Both excellent. My son had the seafood chowder and said it was first class. Staff were attentive and very friendly. Bonus, can park right outside in the winter, but imagine in the summer it is less likely. Close Monday and Tuesday in the winter.

We frequently visit Guernsey and always make a point of visiting the Boathouse. It is well placed for excellent views of the harbour, the Castle and the town of St Peter Port. The menu offers wide choice of food and drinks and the crepes in particular are usually very good. The staff are lovely and will always help with suggestions... More

Came tonthe boathouse for a little something to eat and had the seafood chowder. Never had chowder before and i was amazed at the tastes that cane through. The chowder wasnt to thin and the seafood in it felt part of the dish and not just seafood dumped in afterwards. Very lovely place.

I love this restaurant - the seaside and harbour views are great if you get a chance to sit on the patio. The food is delicious and the seafood is really fresh. They also have a good wine list. I recommend the oysters to start and the lobster Thermidor for lunch on a cool day. Highly recommended
