Amazing view and service . Very pricey for Thailand and whilst the food was good think you can find just as good elsewhere . I came here 10 years ago and the menu seemed more extensive and the price definitely more competitive.
Maybe just stop in for a cocktail and watch the sunset

I stayed at the Boathouse with my husband for the Easter weekend and we ended up eating there quite a lot as the food was excellent! We booked a table overlooking Kata beach for sunset which made for a wonderful setting. The thai food is particularly spectacular - we enjoyed everything we ordered but the Chef special lamb massaman curry is an absolute must, along with the Chocolate trio dessert. The staff were wonderfully friendly and attentive, and later in the evening there is a live pianist and singer for some chilled out music while you enjoy a cocktail or two. Would definitely come again and recommend to family and friends!

Very good and professional service. Nice music creating a Jazzy and cool atmosphere. And the most important, the quality of the food : A perfect fusion between Thai and occidental food. The quality worth its price.

We visited The Boathouse on a Friday evening. There was live music, and we were seated right next to the beach. The view is spectacular, and I imagine it would be even better at sunset! The dish prices vary - anything from the grill is 1000+ Thai Bhat, while a Thai soup costs around 400 Thai Bhat. It is, however, worth the money. I started with a lovely Boathouse Signature cocktail (370 Baht) and had a salad, main course, and dessert. (The bill for this = 2,180 Bhat with a glass of wine, too.) The cocktail was delicious, as well as the food! The service could have been a bit better, but it’s a lovely place, and I’d highly recommend it!
