Oh dear! we are luncheon club members and booked a table for Christmas Eve, as we did last year. This year however, we were disappointed. Appetisers were good and wine was lovely, evidently they have a new Sommelier who knows her stuff! BUT, my husband and I had Fish & Chips; the chips were ok, but the fish was truly... More

Impressive place with friendly and professional staff. Good menu. The food was good but the portion and cost was not. A small bowl of parsnip soup for £5? Although it was delicious. Conversely, the children's portions were huge! Received a warm welcome so will give the place another try.

Great service, fantastic food and an amazing view of the beach and surf. The restaurant has a relaxed feeling with excellent food and reasonably priced wines. Good service but the whole experience is enhanced by being able to watch the sea from the table. Defiantly will go back

Entered this restaraut on Wednesday for a table for three. Welcomed and presented to a table - nice beach decor throughout. The staff at very pleasant and efficient. First impressions are that the menu is slightly expensive (especially the specials), but the sizing is good and I left full. Bread, 1 x starter, 3 x mains and two drinks taps... More

Is there a restaurant that sums up a town quite like Westbeach does Bournemouth. Stunning location right on a popular part of the famous 7 miles of golden sand. Very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere and slightly overpriced. The food is very good although for the price, should probably be better. The service is also good if a little pretentious. If this...

This is the place to go to have a great breakfast, We travel 3 miles along the coast and pass many eateries to get to Westbeach. The location,the service and the food makes it worth a visit. Their Westbeach Classic breakfast with poached eggs is wonderful. Great service on a Monday morning

Fantastic beach that stretches for miles with glorious views. Everything is clean and well cared for. Lovely cliff walks with plenty of seating and wild life. Miles of golden sand.

I love Westbeach. The food is delicious. The atmosphere is relaxed and inviting. In the winter it is cosy and in the summer there is a great summer vibe. The service is first class and every member of staff I have ever encountered has been outstanding. It is just a wonderful place to spend some time with some amazing food.... More

Eat here regularly and never disappointed. Breakfast us great value and the views are amazing. If I had any complaint it would be that even when booking a table it sometimes seems as though walk ins take a preference which us a shame when locals will give trade all year round.
