Beautiful setting and a great place to watch the fireworks on Bournemouth pier. The food was nice but it didn't blow me away which I would expect for the price. Having said that I would give it another chance if it was a firework Friday. I wouldn't order the chateaubriand which was under seasoned, bland and cut too thick. The... More

A huge improvement on our last visit. Everything was absolutely delicious. Loved the duck egg, prefectly cooked, loved the crab, delicious, lamb scrumoet was hot and tasty. Mains of fish & chips - super, lamb and guinea fowl - wonderful. Everything was beautifully cooked and presented, we loved the surprises on each plate. All was faultless. Service was good until...

We have just had lunch at this restaurant, food was good and nice to have different types of cuisine. Before booking we did ask about gluten and dairy intolerance and were told yes they could cater. After a lengthy conversation I was told yes, they did cater but kitchen was small and couldn't guarantee that there wouldn't be cross contamination.... More

The views are fantastic hengistbury head and the Isle of Wight right over to the perfects. It is impossible to separate the views from the terrace from the whole experience. But the food was pretty good with some posh comfort food eg polenta fish fingers etc. The mains were all good 8 or 9 satisfied customers. The staff were pretty... More

Restaurant was almost empty ( two other couples ) never a good sign. Got seats near the Window sure you can see the sea, which was nice but thats the only nice thing about it. Very pretentious restaurant which will appeal to pretentious and easily impressed people. Ordered steak ( medium ) was extremely well done and so streaked with... More
