I am reluctant to review this gem as I do not want it overrun. It is perfect. The location, the food, just brilliant. Ideal for Sunday breakfast but you need to book. We take all our friends. A number one choice for breakfast with an extensive choice. Views wonderful.

We had a lovely evening here in December - the food and service were really on point. The staff were very attentive and helpful, and the food was absolutely delicious. I will definitely be returning - I look forward to going in Summer or maybe for lunch, when we can appreciate the stunning view that we couldn't quite see in... More

Slightly hidden away in Parkstone Bay Marina, this is a cafe worth finding in Poole. Set beside the marina and the water it has a nice atmosphere. The food was very good, presented well and all tasted nice. Price reasonable and service was welcoming and friendly. Overall an enjoyable experience.

Reserved a table to celebrate a family birthday. Greeted by a rather abrupt member of staff. However, the food was great which made up for the initial welcome. Certainly will return but not necessarily in a hurry.

I have visited South deep on many occasion and must say I have always found it a pleasure to go there after my experience this week it will be a while before I return ! I don't know if it was the chefs day off or a change of chef but the food did not meet up to previous meals... More

We stopped here for a snack after walking the dog, I ordered two lattes, a soup and starters of mussels, but we were brought a main meal of mussels, chips and bread. This wasn't what I ordered, it was approx another £7.00 more expensive and I explained that we had just popped in for a snack not a main meal... More
