Located in Portobello, Edinburgh's Seaside, the Boathouse is the premier beach bar and restaurant that everyone is talking about.
Everything was good except the service.
Brilliant , lovely ambiance , felt very welcomed and cared for . Excellent staff
This is the third time I have visited and each time has been a very pleasant experience. The staff cannot be faulted. I tried to put a review on Trip Advisor but you don't have recognition on that site which is a pity. Would you consider adding soup and scones to your menu? Judy Hepburn
Everything was excellent.
I loved the Christmasy feel of the place the staff were friendly and attentive the food was tasty my only criticism is that it took a while and the pizza could have had a bit more toppings but anyway I will be back :-)
Superb service and not a hassle about our dog who got a wee bit loud seeing another dog, very welcoming! We'll definitely be back!
I thought that £10 for a breakfast for kids was quite expensive so maybe it would be an idea to introduce a kids menu to you breakfast
excellant service, food amazing , location awesome
A cosy winter snug, great pizzas and fish and chips
Service was second to none, food was amazing, portion sizes huge so really good value for money. This place is very special will defo be back
Lovely lunch, brilliant friendly staff, lovely venue. No improvements needed! 10/10 xx
Great day out
Great safety in place with Covid 19. Great atmosphere and staff very friendly. Just thought Food quite basic, but good for a drink by the beach with a pizza
Had a lovely lunch in this great place. Great value and having Eat out to help out extended is so fantastic. Thank you
Staff are very efficient but friendly lovely relaxed atmosphere, just a shame all the caravans and vans are parked, as view would add to the lovely experience
Move the caravans from out the front so people have a view of the sea
Great service! A great evening! Didn’t eat but the drinks were lovely. Thank you all
Was a lovely few hours and all well organised. Thanks Lorraine
Had a lovely afternoon with my friend staff food & overall day was great - staff making you feel welcome & really looked after us
Friendly staff, helpful and warm welcoming. Good food. Great value. This was a family meal on a Sunday evening and everyone had a lovely time - fantastic views and dealing well with COVID-19 restrictions.
Staff lovely, all wore face coverings and everything very clean. All clientele were expected to wear a face covering when we moved from our table which was no problem. We had the nachos which were really tasty. Nice place to sit apart from the caravans at the front!
Our first time. Waitress was really friendly and helpful. Food was tasty and plenty of alcohol. Nice and relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely be back. Highly recommend
Value, food and service would have been a 10 if it wasn’t for not being told we had to order all at once so our side dishes and mains all came out together without us knowing so some sides got left due to not wanting our mains to get cold. Then ordered 2 sticky toffee puddings and for £7 this was not great value as you could tell it was a steamed pudding out of a tin with no real flavour me and my mum ate a small bite of it and didn’t finish it, your staff took our desert away not even asking us if anything was wrong due to it hardly being touched and we were charged £14 for two puddings we didn’t eat. I don’t want to be all negative as the place is fantastic been a few times for a drink and when the menu was a lot greater I must however commend you on the fish & chips as it’s one of the best I have had outstanding. Will be back definitely just maybe not buy the sticky toffee pudding
Great afternoon on Saturday 25th July. Great atmosphere and service
Was a beautiful setting, so peaceful. Really great atmosphere and food was lovely and fresh
Amazing, attentive and knowledgeable staff with a huge selection of draft beers and delicious cocktails. We had an amazing evening and will definitely be back!
Had the Seafood Pescatore his time. Enjoyed it but felt too much spaghetti to seafood. I appreciate food was limited in the circumstances.
Staff were excellent and very accommodating.
1st time here and defo return. 1st class service. Prices and food. Totally enjoyable experience
Was great to enjoy a drink with a friend! Staff had everything under control but I think there should be a better system for the toilets as this was massively over crowded
food and cocktails were lovely and it was a really great place to be for our first meal out of lockdown. We will definitely be back
Just had drinks so can't rate food offer but absolutely loved this place. Will so be back.
Had a lovely lunch, food was lovely would have liked a variety of sandwiches on menu . Staff and atmosphere was very friendly would definetly come back.
10/10 Staff are so lovely and helpful. I would highly recommend and will be back!
Excellent as always, so wonderful to have them open again and to see all the lovely staff again who all worked so hard to ensure that people had a good time. Absolutely perfect
Had a lovely evening...and in these unusual times felt very safe and that the precautions that had to be implemented due to covid did not take away from our enjoyment. Well done to the whole team.
Nothing as all was Well the choices of food were very limited but this was due to Impending Lockdown Restrictions
My comments relate to the last 2 visits we had at the Boarhouse in December. We were really happy with the service, staff were very friendly and attentive and knew how to cheer up our little daughter, who was little bit tired at the end of the visit. It’s pet friendly place, therefore our friends could enjoy time with us and their dog. Food was very good and beautifully served. They made necessary adjustments to provide customers with safe and enjoyable space. Love the Christmas decor and cosy atmosphere. Really recommend a visit!
Lovely and festive, good food, awesome pizzas and great service. Will definitely be back.
The staff are so friendly. Food was good. Coffee delicious thanks guys x
Love the staff all so friendly and service excellent. Boat House is a great place to go love all the lights a fab place by the beach.
We dined in the outside extension because we had 2 dogs and this is the area that is dog friendly Service and food excellent Only slight criticism was thar starters come and the same time but not really a big issue. Might have been nice to have a glass of wine 8
Lovely location, looking out to sea. Food was good quality. Staff were pleasant, but very busy and there was a bit of a wait for food. Overall well worth a visit and will definitely go back.
Great service, staff friendly and attentive. Relaxed, cheery atmosphere. Food was pretty simple but tasty. All in all a really good lunch.
Though early enjoyed our lunch. Wasn't too busy and good safety measures in place.
As a local, I use the Boathouse a lot. The service was great but we found that we kept having to ask for drinks - rather than staff asking us if we wanted anything. That said, the service was quick and the staff really nice. The online booking process works well and all in all its a great place to be.
Staff went above and beyond to ensure my daughter was seated with me lovely place x
Service a bit slow but very pleasant waitress and lovely atmosphere, food tasty and good value, will be back.
Sat in the covered outside area. Was bit cold. Should be told when booking whether inside or outside area.
