Went here for our anniversary. Nice table, lovely views, good service and "OK" food. For the price I would have expected true restaurant quality food but instead it was, what I would call, good pub grub. Only good thing is that it's so expensive it puts off people who make noise.

Was given £100 of Vouchers in June by my Son and Daughter as a Birthday present. Unfortunately I wasn't able to use them, as there was a bad fire at the restaurant in August,, and the Cafe Shore closed. I tried to contact the Restaurant by e-mail and via their website. Most of the time I was ignored. Once they... More

Went there for a snack and a drink! Two very drunk men where harassing staff and customers but nothing was done about it. I wasn't a celebrity so service was very poor

Beautiful restaurant with outstanding views. Service pretty good. But food only average at best yet fairly expensive.

A severe fire on the evening of 18th August closed down this Café, and prevented some residents of the Sandbanks peninsular from getting home. The ferry was also suspended until next morning. There is no indication on the premises when they are likely to re-open, nor on their website. At today's date it is still closed.

Amazing views, lush food, delicious wine, good looking, young, and courteous service. Not much wrong with Cafe Shore.

It's full of people who like to believe they are rich. Or put on a show to others to make out they are rich. It is nothing special, very over priced and I've been elsewhere where both service, location far exceeds cafe shore at 1/2 the price. I really wouldn't bother wasting your money unless you enjoy this kinda social... More

The bar and restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere. One can pretend to rub shoulders with the rich and famous that live in sandbanks with real estate adverts on electronic billboards on the wall. It's a very trendy place. The food is good although it's the ambience that makes it, it's in a beutifull setting with magnificent sea views. Would visit... More
