Visited this stylish bistro / cafe on a Sunday morning, frequented by the rich and famous in Sandbanks. It took 20 minutes to be served for 2 coffees and just as long for the drinks to arrive. Nobody took any interest! Not returning!

Stopped here for coffees with the intention of coming back at lunchtime, had to wait for approx 20 minutes before anyone took our order, then waited the same again for the coffees, was told this was due to a member of staff not turning up for work, had another long wait to pay the bill, went up to the bar...

Ate here for the first time with a little trepidation having read previous reviews. We were pleasantly surprised - staff were great giving good service and food was excellent. Lively atmosphere added to overall experience

Another disappointing trip to Cafe Shore - the food was okay, but the service was terrible and the wine was not great and the price just isn't justified.

Café shore is nice but not a very good vibe to it, not like the places in the surrounding area on the beach, over priced to for the quality, did enjoy the drinks, just not the prices.

Although a nice place to visit and eat, I found it very dark inside and the atmosphere was not that of what I would have expected, a little quiet and of a slow nature. Will eat there again though

We ve visited cafe shore this holiday and we found everything very fashionable. We just had some drinks nothing to eat, but I had the best coffee there. The atmosphere was ok, staff polite. I will definately come back in my next trip to poole and I will also try the food .

Smart and trendy. Lots of space to sit indoors but not many outside. Always busy. The food was served well presented and smiley waitress. Enjoyed it very much.

An attractive restaurant with a fun atmosphere, unfortunately the service does not match up to it. Saturday evening a fairly busy restaurant but the service was poor. Left waiting for food through all the courses. I asked for French dressing but was told there wasn't any in the whole of the restaurant. I had ordered a prawn burger which had... More

Attended a 50th Birthday Party here. Wonderful evening in great restaurant with stunning views over the harbour. Food was very good and staff very attentive. The Band, which I believe often performs at the restaurant was also very good , although a bit loud.
