I had read some of the reviews and decided that despite mentions of poor or slow service I would try this local restaurant as the food sounded promising. We eat out 2/3 times per week. Despite trying to call for 3 days during business hours I was never able to reach anyone. I left a message (no response) I sent... More

A great restaurant. We booked last minute for my partners birthday and we were really pleased. Food is excellent, great value for money. Service very good. We had good attentive staff who were not intrusive. Made to feel welcome and would go back no hesitation. It is worth a quick cab ride if you are staying in Bournemouth. Locals and... More

Not in the main part of Bournemouth and mainly frequented by locals but if you are visiting then certainly make sure you find time to go. The food is very good quality and the overall standard of service is excellent, they might be challenged if busy but its worth erservering!

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

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

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
