A beachfront restaurant on Kata Beach

The Boathouse Restaurant in Kata Beach has been a culinary landmark in Phuket for decades, part of The Boathouse hotel. The location is fantastic, the food is excellent, and the wine list is exceptional. The Boathouse serves Western and Thai Cuisine in a sober elegance and does retain a bit of the ‘sailing’ mood that made it famous when it originally opened.

The beachfront dining is the restaurant’s highlight; you are still sitting just by the powdery white sand of Kata Beach. What makes a romantic diner perfect is the quality, originality and creativity of food, accompanied by a sunset view on the Kata bay and smooth and discreet service. The excellent wines just add the final touch, as the Boathouse has a well-established reputation.

The indoor part of the restaurant is vast and bright, but nothing can beat the tables above the beach with ocean and sunset views as you see in the photos. We went for the boathouse special degustation menu, which comes with wine pairing with each course. Not cheap, but a chance to try wines you might never have a chance to drink.

If you feel like a drink before or after your meal, you can also sit down at the beautiful bar or enjoy a sunset from the second-floor terrace.

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early and never stopped until I settled in Thailand in 1994. Then for the past 27 years, my passion for photography and my natural curiosity has taken me to every corner of Thailand, jumping frequently between Bangkok and Phuket and basically everywhere I could go. I run Phuket101.net and manage large international online travel guides.
