The menu changes regularly with lovely seasonal variations and local produce. That is just one of the things that makes us keep going back. The staff are attentive and friendly and the views over the beach and Bournemouth are wonderful.

The decor was excellent; the service excellent; the view excellent; and the food good. Marvellous viewpoint; and easy (on the road) parking. We utilised a Living Social voucher - so the value was good too. Otherwise the prices might have been a bit mouthwatering - but you'd sacrifice this for the view. The service was friendly and professional. Would like... More

Agree with previous reviews- HUGE decline in standards. The food was awful, but the price tag is still up there. We had a basic steak, harvester style dressings with grilled tomato and mushroom on the side- couldn't be further from fine dining- I could have cooked it myself in my tiny kitchen at home. We paid £55 for that steak.... More

Recently visited for the fourth time and found the service to be poor (2 hours to serve a two-course lunch in a half-full room) and the menu limited (no fresh fish available, no specials). However, worst of all was that the food was poorly cooked (dry fishcakes, tepid stir fry). This lunch fell way short of past experiences here and... More

My husband and I heard about Edge through a Living Social deal and from several of our neighbours. The views, food and service are impeccable! We enjoyed a glass of prosecco with home-made crisps on the terrace before going inside to enjoy our starters - scallops for my husband and foie gras and duck pate for me! Our steaks (part... More

We dined at the The Edge on our last night in Bournemouth, with our relatives who live in Bournemouth. We enjoyed every moment from the time we walked in and looked at the view. The food and wine matched this superb location and the staff were excellent. We even met the chef to congratulate him on his restaurant. My entrée... More

Food excellent, service first class. We live in Spain and were staying with friends who took us to the restaurant for Sunday lunch. Value for money, taking into consideration the ambience and the views was really very good.

Having been told Edge was one of the best restaurants in Bournemouth, we were looking forward to our dinner. Upon arrival, it was suggested we have a drink at the bar. The upholstery in the Bar booths was stained, the wait for service was excessive, and when our cocktails eventually arrived the "dirty" Martini was swimming in olive oil.. un... More
