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

Although the food was ok, we didn't much like the young group of toffs in there who were rude to staff and loud, I was disappointed the manager hadn't asked the group to be less loud or to leave. only gave 2 out of 5 as the food was alright, not for the money though.

My Husband and I came here to eat and really enjoyed our meal. We both had starters which were lovely but when the main meal came, Fish & Chips, it was very tasty and there was so much that we couldn't eat it all. The place looks very nice and modern and if i was to come back to this... More

Not to be missed, we always return to cafe shore every time we visit the area, well looked after, I food very good, staff very polite and very tentative. I would recommend early booking if you want a harbour view table.

Just came back from having lunch here. Unfortunately dogs aren't allowed inside so we missed the view however the service was great. The food was also ok however the portions were shockingly small. Would advise to book a table with a view as thats the nicest place in the restaurant!
