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!

The staff at Stars are always polite, friendly and keen to help - and it helps that their cooked breakfast and coffees are easily my favourite in Bournemouth/Charminster!

My fiancé and I go to Starz at least once or twice a month and have done since we got together. The staff and Manager are lovely and we visit so often that the Manager even knows our order! We always feel very at home and recommend Starz to all our friends for somewhere classy for a quiet drink.

We came for late breakfast on Monday, warm and friendly welcome, fresh coffee, lovely atmosphere. We picked "fat boy" 9 items breakfast which came fairly quickly and on hot plates! Very tasty, great value for money and we'll be back soon! Thank you

Starz serves the most delicious food at the best prices in Bournemouth! I have been countless times and have NEVER been disappointed. They also serve the best quality cocktails and wines. Fantastic atmosphere and always buzzing, whatever day, or time of time of day you visit. Such friendly staff too!!

We visited a very busy Starz on New Years Day for brunch and it did take me a while to decide from a very good menu. My wife went for the breakfast and I went for the Huevos Rancheros as I love my spicy foods. Service was excellent and price very reasonable........a great way to start the year!
