From the welcome to the goodbye several hours later, this little restaurant is a delight and this is one review I'm not sure I should share! We have eaten here twice and on both occasions, we have been very impressed by the whole experience. The food is fresh, only high quality ingredients are used and the result is superb. Generous...

This restaurant is a lovely little place to eat. I guess there is one chef in the kitchen cooking the food, as every course was very slow. Table booked at 8pm, dinner arrived about 9.15pm. My husband had a starter, I choose not too, but wished I did, as I was starving once my dinner did actually arrive! However when... More

We ate on a midweek night and were surprised to be asked to return in 45 minutes when the restaurant wasnot half full. The food made the return emimently worthwhile being outstanding for every course and very reasonably priced for this quality . I would give the best rating but the service,although charming , was a little slow and our... More

Having eaten here previously in November, my mother has recently moved to Southbourne, I was looking for a venue to host her surprise 90th birthday lunch for 24 people. I contacted L'Assiette and another small but lovely restaurant in central Bournemouth, after much toing and froing by e-mail as I live in Australia, L'Assiette came up with the best option.... More

We spent a long weekend in Southbourne and booked for dinner on Friday night at L'Assiette, as the restaurant was so close to our B & B. We weren't disappointed! All the food and wine we ordered were excellent, as was the service. There were some unusual dishes, and we enjoyed all of them. Reasonable price for the quality of... More

Great gourmet food and wine at L'Assiette at a great price. A tucked away small but formal restaurant that didi not disappoint in anyway. All courses were delightful and full of flavour. The wine was well chilled and not overpriced. A wonderful experience at a great price and we can't wait to go back.

Vacationing and the folks at the B&B recommended this place. The website said they opened at 6:30, but when we arrived we were told their first reservations were at 7:00p, so we could return then. When we inquired about having drinks, the server reiterated his polite suggestion that we come back in 30 minutes. With few options at hand, we... More

If you are staying in the Bournemouth area, you really should give this amazing, small, niche, English restaurant a visit. Go out of your way to find it, as when you arrive you will be greeted by Thomas, who is charming and enjoy the most delicious dinner. We had bread and olives, ham hock and mozzarella croquettes, followed by the... More
