the staff at this hotel and restaurant are truly superb, the food is beautifully presented and the wine list excellent, even when busy (although a little slow) the staff work together and always serve with a smile and seem genuine in the way they want you to have a lovely time, we stayed at the hotel so used this restaurant...

Visited for lunch and regretted it. Yes the restaurant has great views across to sandbanks and Poole harbour but the quality of the food is not fine dining. The soup was average, risotto very salty and the date and toffee doughnut tasted like the doughnuts had been made three days before and were stale. Did point this out and were... More

We dined here on consecutive evenings whilst staying at The Haven Hotel. On both occasions the food was delicious and very well presented and the staff were friendly and helpful. On our first night, we used the bar for a swift G&T. This was perhaps the most disappointing part of our experience. We both felt that the bar lacked ambiance;... More

I got taken to this restaurant by my boyfriends family. I had the calimari for starter and steak for main. Portions are huge and very very delicious. There is also an amazing view of the sea and we had a great view of a beautiful sunset! The staff were also great and very friendly. Really recommended!

Under the watchful eye of head chef Jason Hornbuckle, we enjoyed 6-nights of wonderfully crafted and perfectly cooked food. Highlights were the amazing duck ravioli, the bavette of beef (succulent, melt in the mouth doesn't begin to describe this dish, and if you know your beef cuts, you know just how hard it is to achieve) and all his fish...

We eat here once a year as a special treat for Sunday lunch. The views are outstanding of Poole Harbour, Harry's rocks etc. It's as if you were on the continent, with the sun (hopefully) and the sea air, and you can't help feeling relaxed. However, the staff are always quite abrupt, which is strange in such a wonderful location.... More

It was our wedding anniversary and we booked lunch in the restaurant with wonderful sea views and close-ups of all the marine traffic to and fro from Poole harbour. We chose well and the service, food and wine complimented the spectacular location. In our opinion nothing or nowhere could have improved on our choice for our anniversary lunch.
