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

Seven of us went to L'Assiette for lunch. The restaurant itself is modern well appointed and comfortable and we were agreeably surprised by our surroundings. There were only 2 other diners in this fairly small restaurant. The food when it came, was well presented, hot and everyone thought it very good. The portions were generous and the prices were pretty... More

A small group of us took a friend here for her 30th birthday on Thursday night. I have been a couple of times before and it has always been great so I was looking forward to introducing the restaurant to my friends. All I can say is it definitely did not disappoint. The service through out the meal was phenomenal,... More
