Filled with nautical artifacts, navigational maps and old photographs of Singapore, the Boathouse summons a vision of maritime feats and a vanished colonial era. And this attention to historical detail is apt, for the heritage building that houses this French restaurant is the former Fullerton Waterboat House, built in 1919 to provide fresh water to ships anchored out at sea.
While the furnishings may be quaint, the food however is anything but. Boathouse offers innovative French cuisine marked by bright, fresh colours and a modern sensibility. It offers a revolving menu based on seasonal ingredients and their clean, pure flavours. In keeping with their maritime theme, seafood like scallops, lobster and sea bass feature heavily on the menu, although there are also French classics like Chicken Roulade and Pork Rack. Aside from food, Boathouse also offers a large selection of whiskeys around the world.
