“Quirky, quaint and stylish, with excellent food” – Julien & Karine Jourdain took over this antique Belgian gunboat in October 2018 from the Crépy family, and it’s “one of the best Ipswich has to offer”. Permanently moored in the marina, near the city-centre, its modern European menu options vary by the day.

At the start of October 2018, this veteran Belgian gunboat (a fine place for dining at sunset) was sold by the Crépy family (who ran it since 1994) and purchased by French chef Julien Jourdain and his wife Karine, with the aim of taking its former Gallic formula and bringing in ‘a more vibrant and contemporary approach’. The Amuda (as the boat is named) will be out of action in early 2019 for a survey and repairs ‘to bring the boat back to its former glory’.

“A great experience” – a very “romantic” floating restaurant, on a century-old Belgian gunboat; since being requisitioned by the Crépy family back in 1994, its Gallic cuisine has received very solid support year upon year.

A revamped 100-year-old Belgian gunboat makes an unusual setting for this unconventional venue, run by the Crépy family on the waterfront; fans suggest there’s not much to say about the Gallic food, it’s “just very good”.
