The Boat House

Finally a wonderful dining experience to report. We decided to go out for brunch today (unbeknownst to us this apparently the second biggest brunch day of the year, after Mother's Day). After some deliberation we headed out to the Boat House in the harbor for some sunny views of San Diego and an elegant brunch menu. I am happy to say we were not disappointed. Having called and made reservations that morning we arrived and were immediately seated at a nice table with a clean white linen tablecloth, by a window over looking the harbor and Point Loma. The views were great and the atmosphere in the restaurant, being Easter, was cheerful and relaxed, brunch is such a great meal to go out for. .

Our waiter arrived and we ordered drinks- the $5 free flowing champagne being unavailable on Easter unfortunately we decided to order a bottle anyway- it was not a bad price. To eat I chose the Eggs benedict, my wife a spinach mushroom and cheese omelet and my sister-in-law the French toast. Our drinks arrived, elegantly presented and were some followed by some delicious warm muffins. We sat and talked enjoying our drinks, loving the views and feeling very relaxed. After a nice period our food arrived, again nicely presented, great portion sizes, and very tasty fair. The French Toast was a real hit, served with strawberries and a great syrup.

We really enjoyed our brunch at the boathouse, it has some of the best views in San Diego, the staff are impeccable and I am sure we will be coming back here again and again.
