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.

We visited on Saturday evening, a reasonable sized family group of 9. When we ordered food, 1 order was very late being brought out to the table, 2 of us ordered the same thing, frittata, the late one was not the best it looked liked it had been cobbled together, potato hard, not much veg in it and cheese melted...

Hi Jaydudya28, Thank you for your recent review of Ludo Lounge, It's disappointing to hear you had a wait for your last meal and that it wasn't up to scratch with the rest of your meal. It is frustrating to hear that you feel the consistency of the Frittata and Salad were below par and I have brought this to... More

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.

We decided to go there after hearing some good reviews, a nice smart looking place and nicely laid out inside. Tables are nicely spread out so easily accessible for wheelchairs & buggies. An extensive menu to suit all the family and good service too. The only disappointing thing is that they haven't got any fruit ciders.
