Horrified! That was our favourite restaurant, so if anybody has any news about it, please share.

Yorky,

The original store location has been demolished, but they were still operating in a new shop when I was last there in January this year. They are down the side of Deepee's Tailors. They are the last store before the cleared site on the sea side of the main road, towards Hard Rock Hotel.

Great food.

Thanks for the info Gaja. I'm happy that they're still operating, but sad that they've been pushed around yet again. Poor things never seem to have a chance to settle anywhere.

Lovely people, great food.

We were there in Feb/March, and they were open, but this is in the last week?

Hanging out to see what the dabbos finds. I guess all the other fans of the boatman are also.

Hi

I just received an email back from our good friends at the Boatman and they are definitely open for business.

Hope this helps.
