I ordered a steak and when I got it, it was cold,so asked for them to reheat it as there were 8 of us in our party and although I was offered a fresh steak I didn't want to be the only one eating as the rest of my friends were eating. So my steak came out again and again... More

Visited with work colleagues. Friendly service although a bit slow as we were a group of 10. Lovely menu with excellent fresh fish and seafood. Situated on the sea front you have a perfect view. I can recommend the Lobster.

Great location right on the beach however the service is a bit slow and chef not very flexible when requesting minor adjustment to the dish.

Fab view, right on the promenade. We used the Gourmet Soc deal, they were a little sneaky by not offering the lighter selection at first, but the food was very good. Service was fine once we spoke to an English speaker, but that could be as it is the beginning of the season, they have some new staff. We were... More

The food here is amazing! The service was really good and the view of the beach and sea with the sun setting was perfect. We even managed to receive 2 for 1 on all 3 courses with my Gourmet Society card so it was great value for money. A must if you are visiting Bournemouth and enjoy good food.

Me and my friend had breakfast here today. We thought the view was lovely while eating breakfast. There was a good range to choose from. I had a bacon bap and it was quite big and packed with bacon! (Not crap bacon either). The service wasn't good though... It took ages to be greeted and we wasn't sure whether to... More
