The waiter was lovely, but both myself & my partner had steak, it was so tough that even the steak knife bounced off, we were never asked if our meals were ok, neither of us could eat our meals apart from the chips that were very nice, but the up shot of this was that we paid a very high... More

I love the panoramic views from The Edge and have been here at least 4 times and always counted it as my favorite restaurant though a little pricey. On Tuesday 15th April I took my daughter there for lunch to celebrate her birthday. We had the set menu. The portions were miniscule and my fondant potato was undercooked and tasteless.... More

Arrived on a beautiful evening to the spectacular view from The Needles, Hengistbury Head, Studland and Old Harry and a polite enough reception. After the usual push to buy expensive water we ordered steak and (vegetarian) gnocchi with prosecco on Amazon Local deal. The deal is pitched at 52% saving v normal price but sirloin was served instead of fillet... More

I've been now 3 times to the edge, 1st time I was invited for my birthday, seating was nice staff ok / friendly/ food mediocre. I had a 25£ or so steak medium well which appeared to be a good cut but the chef managed to cook it dry. I'm not the greatest of cooks but I would have had... More

I have visited The Edge Restaurant on several occasions. It has superb views if the Dorset coastline and is situated in a desirable area of Bournemouth. Unfortunately, it appears that it's reputation is failing its customers. Up until this most recent visit I would have given a 5/5 for the first visit, a 4/5 for the second and third visits... More

The setting is gorgeous and the staff are so attentive. The food is well cooked and prepared and for £26 for a fillet steak with sides it is not to be sniffed at. Overall a lovely experience and some where we will be visiting again when we are next in the area.

We booked a table for two and dined on the 24th of March for my Wife's birthday and what an evening it was! The wind and rain howling outside over the picturesque bay made us feel warm and happy to be sat in our well decorated and comfy seats. The food was served in a timely manner and by very... More

After a shaky start, we had a thoroughly gorgeous lunch at this restaurant. When I phoned to book, the background noise made it really difficult to hear the booking and the guy who was making it put the phone down before I could ask for an e-mail confirmation, something I always like to get. However after poor 1st impressions they... More

A private party upstairs made the restaurant very noisy and the poor closure of the door/window added to the ambience by making it very cool for us. Not ideal. The food and wine and were very good but the prices were very high. Friendly service, but nothing remarkable. There are plenty of better quality restaurants at a lower price in... More

On a nice day there is a lovely view of Poole Bay, but best from a window table. The high prices on the menu do not match the quality or quantity of the food. All in all you pay for the view as the food is certainly not worth it. The service was quite good.
