Can't wait to find an excuse to go back to Bournemouth, this place is brilliant!

Had brunch here with a few friends, the place was heaving, and once you got your food you could see why. It is an excellent eatery, I had the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon on bagels, and my friends all had the pancakes and bacon. It was all fantastic, the staff were really nice and I wish we'd... read more

This is a complete American style diner that has been finished down to the last inch! The service and food are very good and the prices are sensible family prices. If you like diner's it doesn't come any better than this.

This American themed diner gives an excellent service and the food is delicious. Maybe a bit overpriced but in my opinion worth every mouthful.

Have visited here several times for breakfast,so my review is based on breakfast rather than lunch/dinner. Starz's decor is that of an American Diner,done very well. Staff very friendly, nearly always busy creating good atmosphere. Food is of good standard & good value. A firm favourite in the Charminster area of Bournemouth.

It was my fiancee's birthday so we decided to go out for breakfast, a decadence only reserved for special occasions. We popped in around 10.30 and it was already fairly busy. We had to wait for a table but the waitress was very friendly about it, there were 4 people in front of us but it only took around 15... More

Cool laid back little bar diner in the international part of town. Reminds me of the type of themed bar of the 80s but upto date and delivered well. Good atmosphere and nice staff. Coffee good, but good a little expensive. So this is a nice treat.

Had a recent family catchup and visited Starz as somewhere a little different. I have to say it was a great place. It was a more chic version of an American diner! Service was great and the food portions were both reasonably priced and huge!! Great place to go if you fancy something a little different.

Was only looking for a coffee but found Starz - a quality diner right in the middle of Charminster! I had granola (first time) with yoghurt and a black coffee. Nothing complicated but very enjoyable because the place is fun and is clearly popular. Good service and prices. Will be back to try the rest of the menu!
