After walking in the rain in Repulse Bay and then Stanley, we figured it was about time to find a place where we can sit and enjoy the view for an afternoon tea. Passed by several restaurants that waved us in but decided to go inside Boathouse. This yellow building at the corner of the promenade is an icon of... More

First impressions are that this is a bistro but the menu is more complex and choices are good. The service is friendly and quick and the food tasty and hot. A great meal in comfy surroundings

Just had a meal here. The staff were very friendly. The service was quick and the food was fantastic. A great place to eat and sit and watch the world go by with a few drinks.

After enduring torrential rain, all morning, first on a shuttle, then on the ferry, then on a bus to Stanley, we finally arrived and trolled thru an Excellent Market and an equally Excellent Mall. Rain easing, No, Stopping! Heat!!!! Humidity!!!! Lunch! NOW!!!!!!! First we came to was this quaint, little, yellow building with a sign outside, talking our language "... More

The boathouse is one of these places I usually pass by. But this time we decided to give it a try for a late breakfast. The menu was not really suitable for this, perhaps the reason for our 'so so' review, but still the food we ordered was not very tasty.

The best Fish, Chips and Salad I have had in a long time, and I once owned a Trawler, so believe I know fish! This beautiful lunch came with a 'bonus' pint glass of beautifully chilled beer. Quirky, with a boat as glass holder attached to the ceiling! This small boutique restaurant bar is located close to the Stanley Markets... More

First class food , excellent service and a great ambience. Best tables are on the first floor balcony overlooking the South China Sea. This restaurant is on the seafront like most of the others but is a class above, and more pricey. At Weekends the restaurant spills over onto the pavement outside and is a great al fresco experience as... More

I had dinner with friends at boathouse. Their outdoor sitting is simply amazing with a Seaview. Food is good - mussels are fresh, pasta is yummy. Services are good and waiters are attentive.

The Boathouse is a yellow building at Stanley Promenade which offers a wide range of Western dishes such as burgers, sandwiches and seafood. The signature mark of The Boathouse is probably its prime location and the excellent ocean view. The service is friendly, quick and efficient. However, the quality of the food could need some refinement and improvement. The prices... More

There were quite a few choices in Stanley overlooking the sea and we're really happy we chose this one after our morning of shopping at the Market. Got the bar stools at the counter overlooking the sea and had a great waitress. Ordered the seafood/shellfish tower and a couple of cold beers. Truly an enjoyable meal!
