We are family owned restaurant specialising in home-cooked fish, meat and vegetarian dishes. Everything is made on our premises from the homemade bread and marinated olives to the petit fours at the end of your meal.We pride ourselves on using as much local fish and produce that we can, using fish that is sustainable and meat that we can guarantee we know the source and is matured naturally and raised without anitbiotics.Pete and Frances started the restaurant in 1999 and we are as passionate about it now as we were then. Together with Paolo, our head chef and Erica, our front of house supervisor and the team at Storm we look forward to welcoming you to our restaurant soon.

Popped in by chance on a Saturday evening. There were a few tables unreserved so we easily got a table. Everything was tasty and very nicely presented. It wasn't a big wow, but certainly good quality and filling. Would pop in again.

We popped in here the first time as an off chance and fell in love with it! Storm has a fantastic atmosphere created by the themed decore and wonderful, helpful staff. The food is excellent everytime, we've never had a meal that is less than excellent. The menu has been different each time we've gone in as it depends what... More

What a find! We asked two local people where in Poole was the best place to eat fish, and they both said "Storm"! The staff were lovely~ attentive without being pushy. My fish soup was a creamy bisque, and my baked black bream with chermoula and samphire was fabulous. The fish choice is based entirely on what the owner and... More

Expected alot more from Storm. Food was ok nothing special. I'm a big fish and seafood lover and expected some more creativity with the menu. Portions were good but very overpriced. Service was good on entry, waitress service not so good. Wouldn't come again.

This is a great, family run seafood restaurant in Poole. I had not made a booking, and was able to get a table on a Friday night. The menu is great, and there is something there for most people. The fish was all lovely and fresh, and there were specials as well. The staff were friendly, fast and efficient, and... More

Locally caught fish is very wellcooked, served and presented. A little bit on the expensive side but worth it for that special meal out.

Staff with attitude. Gritty, small scallops. Fish curry full of bones. Overdone lamb. Need I go on? Overall, the experience was poor and given the 'story' we were sold, we were expecting substantially more than we received. There are many more restaurants in and around Poole that I would recommend over this one and I certainly won't ever be returning.

Saw this restaurant on an ITV programme and had it recommended by family members we were staying with in Poole! Storm is a tiny restaurant near Poole Harbour, the food is lovely and the service was excellent. The only thing we could complain about was how stuffy the restuarant was! We visited on a very hot day last summer, where... More
