My husband and i decided to try this restaurant as an early valentines day treat. The 2 guys there were very friendly and attentive. The food was out of this world. I'm a fussy eater but decided to try calamari and chorizo as a starter, fabulous! We both had lamb for a main which was cooked perfectly and delicious and... More

A surpringly spacious arrangement of tables hides behind the small shopfront entrance. Warm welcome preceded attentive but non-intrusive service. The tempting menu understated its excellent cuisine which invigorated the taste buds Definitely on the list for repeat visits

Having read the manager's responses to previous bad reviews I must tell the whole story & explain that there can be no excuse for the waiter's dreadful attitude. Perhaps they've not heard of good customer service and that the customer is always right? Four of us dined here this evening. There was hardly anyone else in the restaurant (no more... More

We were spending New Year in Weymouth and after a reccy chose Sense for a special meal. We couldn't have done better! The New Year menu was excellent and at a reasonable price £29.95. Staff were friendly and attentive. The restaurant is well laid out and tastefully decorated. Table sizes and shapes to suit all groups. We will definitely return... More

I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. It doesn't look much from the outside but once you go inside you are treated to friendly and efficient service. the food is reasonably priced for a French cuisine type menu - 2 course lunch for £10-95 starters include salt and pepper calamari with lime and prawns with chilli jam. There is a... More

A last minute booking on a Saturday evening just before Christmas, for four people, left us all very impressed by this restaurant. The food was delicious, they were offering a full menu, plus a Christmas special three or two course menu, which was excellent value. Three of our group used this menu and were very happy with their meals. The... More

Myself and family were unsure where to go for a nice meal...having tried a lot of places in Weymouth we were looking for sonething different. Most places we had called were already fully booked. We called on the off chance and they made a table available to us! The restaurant is very modern, fantastic decor with ample spacing between tables... More

Great choice on the menu, treated to brilliant, friendly and conscientious service. Thoughtful and attentive waiter, took my coat and gave us crackers even though we ended up not choosing the Christmas menu. The monkfish tail was perfectly cooked, sumptuous garlic sauce and home cut chips (instead of risotto - offered very thoughtfully). Really tasty, fresh and zingy. Would definitely... More

We had difficulty booking a table on short notice, and Sense was our third attempt. We were dining with friends, and we really hoping not to be disappointed. The restaurant was busy, but our table was waiting for us when we arrived. Apart from rather slow, albeit very friendly service, the meal was a great success. Everyone enjoyed his/her choices,...
