Loved the food, service and atmosphere at this restaurant. Exceptional engaging staff.fabulous view. Such a shame about the recent fire, but sure it will come back even better.

I came here with a group of ladies for a booked meal on a hen night in July. We arrived at 6.30pm and after ordering our food fairly swiftly were not served our main courses until 9.45pm! It was a Saturday evening but the restaurant was not even at full capacity. The staff were in fact very nice and helpful... More

This restaurant gives a perfect experience every time. I've been a few times now, for occasions or casual dining, the view is breathtaking, the dishes are delicious & the service is excellent.

I visited Cafe Shore as a party of 10 adults in early August 2014. We had a table booked for 8:30 and all arrived early to have drinks in the bar. The first couple of people to arrive had fin bar service as would be expected, the later people had cocktails arrive without napkins (so the table was drenched and... More

Found this lovely place whilst staying at the awful sandbanks hotel nearby. Thank heavens we found it - the saving grace of our stay in sandbanks. Ordered the scallops which were gorgeous, we had a table overlooking the harbour watching the sun go down. Service was excellent particularly the gentleman behind the bar. If we are in the area again... More

We visited ‘Sandbanks’ during our visit to Dorset. We wanted to get some food and spotted ‘Café Shore’. There is no Menu outside but there were a few tables that had not been cleared away, so had a sneaky peek and the menu. The food was overpriced. It would cost you well over £30 for two sandwiches and a couple... More

Taking 17 colleagues and customers out for dinner is never easy. However, this was one of the easiest "large" groups I have ever entertained. Simply because the personal service and quality of product was so good. Price was reasonable for the nature of the place and with the added bonus of getting their semi-private, VIPish area, the evening was pretty... More

Local hangout for the " I have more money than you ... Or daddy has rather" brigade. Usually full of bleach blondes and fake tans trying to get Tarquin to spend his gap year money on champagne rather than finding his "real self". Food average drinks expensive and far better places to go. Outside is especially great by the main... More
