Memories were made here

We were on a business trip, had dinner elsewhere and the 7 of us fancied a cocktail before retiring. Well..... Several hours later we danced out of this fabulous bar and off to our respective hotels with memories that shall be remembered. What a great venue. The bar staff were brilliant. Really... read more

I love this cocktail bar, lovely interior, large bar to sit up to and watch the cocktail waiters doing their thing. The waiters are so knowledgeable and answer any questions you may have about cocktail making. They are more than happy to tweak cocktails to ones personal taste and the range of drinks in stock is varied. One barman gave... More

Having previously had a less than great dining experience here we were reluctantly returning but thank goodness we did! The cocktail staff are really friendly, enthusiastic and working really hard. The magic happened when we then had dinner in the restaurant: the chef is producing amazingly delicious food. I love the Italian influenced menu and the quality of every course... More

Brilliant, good choice fine dining menu at reasonable prices. Try the Celeriac Veloute or the meat duo or the peach cheesecake.

To be honest a meal hastily arranged for 12 men didn't enthralled me and expectations were low. However, was pleasantly surprised by this place. 3 courses for £23 and food was of a very high level, 3 ways smoked fish starter followed by a pork tenderloin dish that was cooked perfectly and a chocolate marquise that was as good as...

Had a three course meal which was excellent. Very friendly staff and good service. Lovely for couples, music from the 70's / 80's was playing in the background which brought back memories of our honeymoon in bournemouth 36 years ago.

Half price cocktails before 7pm and a tasty 3 course meal. I had the skate but colleagues said the steak was also very nice. I also had a nice cheese-board. Friendly bar and restaurant staff and prompt service especially as we were a large table.

We had their £15, 3 course meal offer which is excellent value. It was a modern tasty meal served in a small restaurant behind the cocktail bar. The staff were helpful. Service was smooth, unfussy but classy. We retired to the cocktail bar to sample one of their many on offer. Service is slow due to the nature of cocktail... More

We really enjoyed the food, we were a party of 5 including 1 child and it was all good. The service from the bar manager on arriving to the waitress was very good. We will be back on our next visit to Bournemouth. The food was fresh, well presented and tasty.
