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

Had a lovely meal in this restaurant on Aug, booked a table early so we could sit by the water. Food was lovely I had crab followed by steak all cooked to perfection! Service was impeccable! Can't wait for this place to reopen! Would definitely return!

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
