This restaurant is located on the sea front and the views are spectacular, we were greeted after booking a table and told we could either enjoy a drink outside or be seated straight away. We chose to have a drink outside and then took our seat. We shared Red Thai Curry mussels and some scallops which were both thoroughly delicious.... More

Went for Saturday lunch. Friendly welcome. Mains were good including special hake with quinoa and brown shrimps. Pity the plates had been stood on the side for about 10 mins before serving. Gnocchi was kind of deconstructed. Kids meal turned up when the rest of us had nearly finished. Sweets were to die for but kids dessert was wrong first... More

Lunch. Not been here before. Sat inside - too hot outside! Efficient service, excellent food (my crispy duck egg was cooked to perfection) - wonderful position looking over a sparkling sea to the Purbeck hills.

We went here last night intending to take advantage of the 2-4-1 on mains offer that is the deal every Wednesday, however we were informed that the 'specials' and crustaceans were not part of this deal. Having looked at the fairly limited choice of main meals on the a la carte menu which were included in the 'deal', we stuck... More

Stopped here for something to eat, and found the surroundings very nice. Good sea views, while having a drink, very relaxing. However, at lunchtime, several people were turned away as they were not ordering food.A shame as there were a complete family, and nowadays can anyone afford to turn away custom?

When we visit Bournemouth we often treat ourselves to a meal or a snack. My husband had the mussels and I had salmon and haddock fish cake with poached egg. Both delicious. Staff here are friendly and helpful. Some of the meals are a bit pricey.
