The Boathouse Restaurant

A romantic beachfront restaurant on Kata Beach

The Boathouse restaurant, situated on Kata Beach, offers a blend of Southern Thai and Western cuisine, serving both lunches and fine dinners. Guests can choose between indoor and outdoor seating, enjoying a romantic dining experience with the stunning backdrop of the Andaman Sea. The restaurant has been recognized by the prestigious Wine Spectator Awards since 1995, boasting a wine list featuring over 150 unique labels. Additionally, there is a stylish pool bar located by the beach, adding to the overall charm of the dining experience.

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 of the Kata Bay and smooth and discreet service. The excellent wines 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’s special degustation menu, which comes with a wine pairing with each course. Not cheap, but it’s a chance to try wines you might never have a chance to drink. If you like a drink before or after your meal, you can sit 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 until I settled in Phuket in 1994. For the past 30 years, my passion for photography and my curiosity have taken me to every corner of Phuket, Bangkok and everywhere I could go in Thailand. My goal is to share my discoveries, photos and tips to help travellers plan their holidays by making Phuket 101 as easy as possible to use for everyone!
