When I was in Bournemouth, I had my lunch at this restaurant. The restaurant is unique, a bit funky and I liked it. The food was great, and the service was great too. I was greeted with smile and was asked how my day was and all. The staff were very friendly and it was appreciated when someone who never... More

Four of us got together and just happened to book on a Monday night, which is when they have a special menu where two people can eat two courses and enjoy a lovely wine for just £35. I had the lobster linguine to start which was really good but my partner's kipper croquettes were absolutely stunning! For my main I... More

I took my family here for a meal on Saturday, I've driven past a few times and it looked like a nice atmosphere, and a good bar. We booked a table for 8.30, when we arrived we were told our table wasn't ready, so we had to wait at the bar. That's fine, we got a drink and stood and... More

Went here today with my wife for a quick drink and small nibbles. Lovely cheese selection with awesome chutney. Shame I actually had to ask for the biscuits that were supposed to accompany the 5 cheese selection. The biggest shock at the end was Finding out I paid 70p for the dash of lemonade that went in my lager top.... More

The food was OK, bit the portions were small and not cheap, we had Fish and Chips and felt there were too few chips and the fish was not large. They also couldn't find any vinegar for our chips, bizarre. The wine list was expensive too, with hardly any wine under £20 a bottle. The decor was good thought and... More

We went to Urban Beach Restaurant for our Sunday lunch again today and it did not disappoint. I had the slow cooked belly pork and my husband had the roast beef and both were mouth-wateringly good. Our meals were accompanied by roast potatoes and parsnips, cauliflower in a cheese sauce, swede, carrots, asparagus and samphire, a sea vegetable that has... More

We visited the restaurant for breakfast and I was very disappointed with the quality and value for money. I ordered the 'full english' priced at £7.50, and was disappointed to find that the breakfast was luke warm at best. The beans were missing and came some time later, and the hash brown was deep fried and over cooked. It was... More

I visited Urban beach for the third time, always tried something different from the menu, however this time I had butternut squash salad topped with local goat's cheese which was truly amazing, I am not fan of goats cheese but the brand was used in the salad was so tasteful that it changed my all experience about the food.

Had another good meal at Urban Beach. Chicken & Ham hock crumble pie.... Very nice indeed, great flavours and the crumble was surprisingly tasty as I am more of a pastry man.... My wife wasn't as impressed with her risotto that he had as seemed needed more seasoning and needed to be hotter as was luke warm and a bit... More
