The Boat House
Food was very good, nice ambiance with good service and would visit again.
First time visitor to the restaurant and would highly recommend it. Excellent food and first class service throughout the evening.
Hugely impressed with the quality of food, service and in particular how they had set their stall out to cope with the Covid-19 outbreak - it was truly an experience and shall be repeated hopefully frequently !!!
Absolutely outstanding once again, struggle to think of a single negative. Food exceptional, service first class, setting immaculate... Honestly puts more high profile eateries to absolute shame. If these standards are maintained awards will surely follow. Brilliant.
Amazing food, wine and service. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing which was outstanding. The service was some of the best service that I have ever had!
The boathouse is an absolute treat. A unique space, incredible lunch menu (£22 for two fabulous courses, £26 for three). Superb service from the friendly and attentive David, and a superb selection of wines from Neill Wine in nearby Groomsport. What's not to love? Spoil yourself and book early.
Delicious food. Excellent and knowledgeable service. Lovely variety in the 7 course tasting menu.
We had the tasting menu with wine. Every mouthful of food was a delight and matched with wines that we wouldn't normally choose... A very welcome education!
A wonderful and leisurely evening, looked after very well.
When in Northern Ireland, go to the Boat House...
A real treat
Interesting core ingredients very well cooked
Wine list has some unusual countries represented eg 2 wines from Uruguay
Service is as is should be - information and informal
Simply put, the best dining experience I have ever had. Food incredible, wine fantastic and wonderfully presented. Granted, it's not the cheapest place in the world but the whole event is an absolute adventure. The only regret was not going for the 7 course taster menu and the only disappointment was when it had come to an end. Enjoyed it so much, I've booked again for my wedding anniversary months away. I'm counting the days!
Amazing meal and dining experience yet again. Great service from Johnny and the food was breathtaking. Amazing atmosphere.
Just a lovely experience- Jonathan who served us was very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was superb - innovative, seasonal , full of flavour. Just amazing
An absolute Highlight to our visit to Bangor. The restaurant was compact and intimate, the attention to detail in service and food impeccable- the information concerning where the food is sourced is an added plus. I’d definitely recommend this restaurant more for high dining than just everyday eating out. A real adventure in gastronomy!
Excellent food, great setting and top service
Everything I heard, It was 100% true. I was coming from Dublin to stay a few days in Belfast, and when arrived at Belfast, the 1st thing I did, was going to this restaurant. Dave it's a great front of the house. He can explain everything in perfection!. I was "drunk" of the food... In the way of great food; I love the duck with the champ. Tradition with the best products!
Had the tasting menu paired with wine and it was superb. Not cheap but a fantastic gastronomic experience. Service excellent too.
Excellent food and wine. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening
Amazing food in a wonderful setting with complimentary amuse-bouche and fantastic wine list. The ambience was perfect and the staff were welcoming, very knowledgeable, friendly, attentive yet unobtrusive. This is the perfect place for an intimate dining experience, especially for a special occasion.
We celebrated a friend's 80th birthday and we had a wonderful time.
The food was incredible and Johnathan was particularly attentive.
Sarah (the birthday girl) said she felt very special and we are planning our next visit.
Thank you to everyone at The Boathouse.
Having been to the Boat House a little while ago, I was looking forward to a return visit.
It did not disappoint. We were made to feel very welcome, in conjunction with the food, and attentive service, made it a memorable evening.
Top class! Food and service where outstanding. Can’t wait to go back.
A hidden gem, serving fantastic food with a modern take. Presentation is itself a feast and the service completes a gourmet experience
Fantastic evening, food was stunning and service attentive.
Fantastic ambience and meal. Kudos to Jonathon and crew
Literally the best meal I have ever had. Ox and six by nico can learn a thing or two.
Exceptional food and service with a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Perfect venue when you want to treat yourself and/or someone special.
A great meal. Service was outstanding as was the food. Very enjoyable evening. Would highly recommend. We did the ala carte menu but looking forward to coming back to try the taster menu.
An unexpected amazing dining joy! The food was that kind of taste sensation that is most definitely worth paying a little bit extra for, the dining experience overall though was fantastic value as the kitchen sent us out lots of lovely complimentary tasters that were so delicate and delicious they made the whole experience that extra bit special. The service was just right too, very attentive and helpful and perfectly relaxed despite the serious top level cheffing going on behind the scenes. I can’t wait to go back!
Fantastic meal. Great menu and choice of wine. Really good service, lovely evening.
lovely setting, great service, food not worth the money. The food was nice but nowhere near £30 a course nice.
very overpriced and left feeling hungry. Mark ups on wine is ridiculous, bottles of wine that normally cost £14 being charged at £40 per bottle to make them seem special.
A+++++. Fine dining at it's best. Top class. Perfect for a date night if you want to impress.
Excellent food & service,
Would highly recommend!!
Lovely food and excellent service, however the portions were a bit on the small side which made it quite expensive.
Was very entertaining especially the people at the next table I did that a bottle of wine can cause such a big deal the staff held it well and I like they brought fresh food after the couple had their row out side . Well done to all the staff. And we loved the lovely extra between courses . Most of all thank u for my birthday surprise natalie ur writing in icing was wonderful. Thanks to all we be back again.
A very friendly welcome and a very enjoyable dining experience
Amazing evening in the boat house. From great food to amazing service. Johnny, the waiter, made the evening amazing and remembered me and my girlfriend from a visit 2 years previous. Would 100% recommend to anyone else looking for a fine dining experience.
First time at The Boat House during a visit to relatives in Bangor. Superb, focused menu with excellent wines. A most friendly welcome followed by knowledgeable information and presentation of our two courses. The food was just as good as the menu and we chose an excellent Santenay. We will visit again and highly recommend this restaurant. It's 'sister' restaurant, The Salty Dog, is also very good!
First visit since Boat House changed ownership. From online menu descriptions hoped style of cuisine had moved on from outdated ‘nouvelle cuisine’ of former owners. Disappointed. Looked forward to fresh local ingredients served in modern light fashion.
Service was friendly and efficient and ambiance was good. Restaurant not full on a Saturday night!
Interesting menu - excellent choice of dishes. Service was discrete- staff were friendly and well informed about the food and wine. Throughly recommend this restaurant.
Excellent, venue, food and wine. staff very attentive and informative.
