I visit Bournemouth a lot and eat lunch every day at Westbeach. The atmosphere, the friendly welcome and delicious sea food are second to none.

What a fantastic experience, the location is wonderful, food delicious and staff attentive without being overly fussy. My wife and I enjoyed our anniversary meal at Westbeach last night and couldn't find fault with anything. We shared the baked camembert starter, had fish for our main courses and shared a pud. Well done for giving us a great experience.

This was a mistake looked lovely when we booked it, however service was vey poor and even more disappointing was the food , portions very small and over priced. Even more expensive than some top london restaurants. Waitress seemed new and ignorant to specials and the menu, our bottle of white wine was warm. We couldn't face desert so left... More

We've been going to Westbeach for many years and when it's on form, the location is so gorgeous that you can forgive just about anything. Which is as well as there's often a bit to forgive! We have rarely seen the same service staff twice here and a succession of managers have come and gone. My most recent experience saw... More

My partner & I decided to go out for a bike ride from Southbourne to Sand Banks. On the way back we decided to stop for a meal at West Beach. We ordered a jug of pimms, she ordered the Seabass meal & I ordered steak and chips. We sat outside and enjoyed the sea view. The service was attentive... More

We arrived at 3pm. Shift change. Pretty young things. Uncertainty as to what was on or off. We started with bloody marys that were exceptional. A selection of appetizers and cocktails on a flow until 6pm when the menu opened. Oysters that were to die for. We shared six and each of them was the size of a small retirement... More

It was a pleasure to dine here tonight with my husband. The food was cooked to perfection. My steak was delicious! We shared the chocolate fondant pudding and it was rich and a wonderful way to end our meal.

Taking our friend out for a late lunch in Bournemouth was supposed to be special - and it was at WestBeach - lovely food, views and constant smiles from the staff. However, attention to detail would have made it perfect - our starters arrived before they'd served the drinks - the bar was very slow - the champagne was quite... More
