I had heard a lot about the Urban Beach restaurant and was looking forward to trying it. Whilst the food was good, and menu interesting I didn't feel the food was anything special. I was disappointed that it was not possible to buy a basked of freshly made bread, although we were brought a couple... read more

Decided on the home made pasta with mussels, squid and leek off the specials board - and it was so good! and so reasonably priced! Wonderful wine selection and knowledgeable and friendly staff.

Have been here before and have been impressed before. Second time around and a little dissapointed. The staff are excellent always! (And always the same faces) We ordered leg of lamb this time and was greeted with 4x 10mm thick very pink lamb pieces. We wasn't even asked how we wanted it cooked. No other sauces/condiments were offered, although I... More

No faults here a lovely environment to be in wether eating or stopping by for cocktails. We stopped in for dinner last night and we were greeted with a lovely warm welcome as we always are. We both opted for the steak and they were cooked to perfection which is the first thing i check for with a large steak.... More

We had a fairly late lunch here, and were surprised that they hadn't "run out". We both had Roast Beef and it was first class. The vegetables (lots) were all Al Dente and we love that, I don't want to eat vegetables that are mushy, it reminds me of school food! The staff here are excellent and they have a... More

We thought we would check this place out as we always go to Urban Reef. Really lovely inside and outside (for summer). Staff really lovely and we are going to go back for something to eat next time.

We stopped off for lunch and received a very warm welcome as we entered. The lunch menu had lots of choice from sandwiches to larger meals. Fantastic food, great staff and brilliant relaxed surroundings. Well worth a visit

We were looking for a place to eat before going to the O2 Academy and came across Urban Beach - what a find ! A nice laid back atmosphere, efficient service, tasty food and a decent range of drinks mean we'll be back soon, preferably when it is a little warmer so the outside space can be enjoyed. It was...

I visited with my daughter, we just went to have a coffee. We were served almost immediately, coffee came 3 mins later and was very good. Loved the fairtrade sugar. We browsed through a menu and will definately be back as the food looks and sounds amazing. We were very lucky the sun was out and we could take advantage... More
