Great views but terrible food and service. Have tried it MANY times but usually leave before eating as never any vegetarian choices. Coffee usually only lukewarm and has to be returned. Nice place but needs new menu and staff. I don't mind expensive as long as it's good.

Having not eaten here for 10 years and being local we thought we would dip our toes in the water .why do we never learn that a leopard never changes his spots.bad service with cheap labour who don't understand English and food portions that were so small and poor.

For the anbience , the views across the Harbour entrance , the service and a narrow range of food presented well but tasty. Thumbs up ........ some professional moaners gave this restaraunt a terrible write up .......... they must have a degree in grumbling. Good food , great ambience , worth booking and paying in advance on their pre payment... More

We requested a window table but unfortunately didn't get one. It was a beautiful evening and the views would have been far better from a window table. The menu was quite small with many of the choices having a surcharge. Our meal was good but not amazing! Our waiting staff had very poor English which made it difficult to order... More

Easter Sunday Lunch, must be lamb. And it was, one of the best lamb lunches I have had for years. Four of us booked a window table in La Roche, and whilst the sun wasn't out it was pretty sunny inside. We all went for the Table d'Hote which at £35 per head for three courses seemed reasonable. And we... More

The setting for this is first class, overlooking Swanage bay and Poole harbour there is always something going on. The service was worthy of 5 stars, the waiter to our table (Terenc) was a joy to behold, nothing was to much trouble, on to the food the menu was varied to suit everyone, cooked perfectly. Well worth a visit

The setting of this restaurant is truly fabulous. We dined on a sunny clear day and were able to take advantage of the view over to Studland. The food was delicious and worthy of its fine dining reputation. However the downside is that the young staff require more training on dining etiquette. A waiter who reaches between two diners who...
