Partner and i relaxed late afternoon in Ludo, enjoying the french doors being open offering plenty of sunshine. The atmosphere was lovely, very chilled with groups, families and ladies doing lunch. I had the 'Lounge Burger' which was excellent, very flavourful! My partner enjoyed the 'Twisted chicken Club' but unfortunately was unable to finish due to the good portion size,... More

We liked everything and disliked nothing - the staff were very nice, the tapas was amazing (especially the 5 Spice Pork - wow) and the house wine was yummy. Very enjoyable - we will be back on our next trip!

We popped in for a spot of lunch on a busy-ish day. There was no space downstairs so we sat up where all the tables were filthy with dirty plates and cups, even on our table had to move the dirty things. Our food came, we had no cutlery or sauces and had to wait for that. The waitress seemed... More

We ate on a very busy Saturday night as group of four. We were impressed by how hard the staff worked to keep up with the demand. At one stage there were 9 people waiting to place orders at the bar. Our food arrived quicker than the time quoted but we were not impressed, the burgers were good I'm told,... More

We visited Ludo Lounge last week whilst on holiday. It was sold to us as one of the best places to eat in the area, so our expectations were high. The service was acceptable and the staff were friendly. The food was ok - the highlight was the sticky toffee pudding. The main course portion sizes were not big enough... More

My partner and I ate here on Sunday evening during the August bank holiday weekend. The restaurant was fairly busy I'd say 2/3 full but we managed to find a nice table. There was a good atmosphere with people chatting and candles lit on each table which looked nice. Once we ordered the food came quickly with only one thing... More

fantastic Tapas bar great atmosphere and choice of food and drinks, reasonable too and if you dine on a Tuesday you get a Tapas Tuesday special with a glass of wine. We stayed in Southbourne and its on the high street so we could walk and enjoy a few drinks.

The food is freshly made, very tasty and a high standard. I order from the Gluten Free menu which has lots to choose from compared to most other pubs/cafes. They also have a Vegan menu if required.
