Directly on Kata Beach
Casual dining with a beachfront view of the Andaman Sea. Features on open kitchen, award-winning wine cellar, exquisite aged beef menu and romantic sunset lounge.
An evening at Boathouse on Kata Beach leaves a lasting impression. The al fresco dining, stupendous food and beachside ambience make for an occasion unsurpassed.
Try to get here in time for sunset; enjoy a relaxing cocktail – a mojito and Boathouse lemonade are perfect – and savour the sights and sounds of water lapping on the sand, the sun slowly dipping into the Andaman Sea and the tranquil atmosphere of the outdoor terrace. Meanwhile, beach aficionados play in the water and on the sand below.
Some say menu selection is best left to the chef, and so it was. Boathouse team prepared a delightful dinner complemented by fine wines from Boathouse’s award-winning wine cellar. A meal that couldn’t disappoint, an array of appetizers and entrées featuring the restaurant’s new charcoal-grilled style menu of meats and seafood.
Starters were a medley of stuffed deep-fried mushrooms, chopped wagu steak tartare with Dijon mustard, shallots and egg along with salmon smoked in coconut husk with caper berries, pickled shallots and yoghurt. The lobster bisque, 24-hour crafted with chorizo, spring onion and crostini which followed was a delight.
Beef lovers must try the Thai dry aged beef, Boathouse’s 60-day method that creates tender and flavourful cuts. Served alongside an Australian steak that was non-aged, the contrast was noticeable – the aged steak notching the higher score! Three sauces and a side of potatoes dauphinois served to augment the delicious chargrilled steaks.
Decadent desserts are the supreme way to round off a meal and there’s no disappointment with the Boathouse offerings. Spoiled for choice!
The wine selection at Boathouse is formidable with exquisite Cabernet Sauvignons, Torres, Chiantis, Muscats and more from around the world – crisp whites and compelling reds – paired with each course for us by the resident sommelier.
Need more? Then it’s the warm hospitality that, together with the exquisite food and wines, makes Boathouse the perfect choice for a truly memorable occasion.
