What a stunning location to sit and have breakfast or any meal come to that. We sat out on the terrace and enjoyed a full english and a smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, I have to say this was the best scrambled eggs I have had in a long time. The staff were very attentive and our meals arrived quickly.... More

We went for dinner on a lovely evening. After we had given our orders, the waitress suggested that we might like to have our drinks and complimentary bread on the terrace. It was a great idea as the light was wonderful with the setting sun shining on the white sails of the odd yacht out on the sea. I had... More

We had our first evening meal at Seventh Wave restaurant on Saturday, 9th August but it certainly won't be the last. There can be no where else in Britain with such spectacular views but the views wouldn't be enough if the food wasn't good. The food wasn't only good but excellent and as for value for money it was superb.... More

Of course this is a honeymoon cafe with no competition so it can charge what it looks but £5 for a bowl of soup is still steep. Lovely setting though, friendly service, nice views.

I went to this cafe/restaurant for the first time with my mum & sister. We were not able to find a vacant table outside but inside was no problem as we arrived around 1:30pm. We did not wait to be served but went to the counter to place our order. My mum & sister ordered the fish and chips and... More

This is a great place for lunch with fantastic views over the sea from the terrace. It's very dog friendly - dogs are allowed inside and out - and our server brought a bowl of water unasked for our retriever as he thought he looked thirsty! My husband had the fish and chips, I had the pollock. Both very obviously... More

Superb food, superb views, very well priced and overall amazing. Highly recommended so much so that my husband and I married at Durlston recently. Seventhwave catered for us and it was awesome!
