After the restaurant relocated and got a new look we went to give it a try. The food was good as always, a must try the pumpkin soup with curry and the seafood salad. Service friendly and knowledge. Note that you can only pay cash. Good to have le winch back.

The food was exquisitely prepared and served. The aged beef was from Australia (not Thailand ...thank goodness). The chicken cordon blu was excellent and the dark chocolate mousse was to die for! This all came at a price you would find in Europe or America, though. But we knew going in that it was a "special occasion " place and... More

We thought as this restaurant was nearby it would be a nice choice for our last night in Phuket after spending time with good friends and to thank them for their hospitality. While we understand that new restaurants might have some teething problems there were some obvious issues this night. The wine list only featured 2 red wine choices which... More

Le Winch is still located in The Boat Lagoon but on the other side of the marina ... in the former Vie En Rose location. Vincent is still the owner/chef, I'm pleased to say. I went with a group of friends for dinner on the day after the launch! Basically, the menu is similar to the one we know and... More

I was staying with friends who live at the Boat Lagoon and they recommended Le Winch. It's a small but cosy restaurant with a really lovely view over the marina. The welcome and service is genuine and makes you feel relaxed. Chef Vincent came out a couple of times to chat with us, which I always appreciate, but I guess... More

Dinner was overpriced and service was disgusting with over an hour wait for meal to be served. The quality of the meal was good but not worth the long wait.

So I embarrassed myself by swiping my finger over my husband's wine reduction sauce that came with his perfectly cooked Australian tenderloin steak. It was Devine. His plate came complete with carrots, broccoli and baby carrots. Plus sauté potatoes. The plating was gorgeous. My goat cheese and fig salad looked and tasted fabulous too. Lemon tart. 3 on a plate.... More

If you go to Phuket, do not hesitate to visit the chief Vincent in his restaurant "The Winch" located at Boat Lagoon Marina. I recommend this restaurant whose dishes offer a pleasant and relaxing contrast to local cuisine often too spicy. Note: The marina offers a very pleasant view.
