What a super little find. Really excellent food, the waiter really cared about getting the order right ( I am a fussy eater ) The wine was lovely and reasonably priced, I think the food is a few pounds more per dish than your average local chain but well worth it as there is no comparison for the quality of...

Great food, staff and atmosphere! I am a regular costumer here and am never disappointed. The staff are extremely attentive and friendly. The food is always very nice and the atmosphere is good as well.

This restaurant remain the best Italian for some many miles. Dash runs a fine establishment and the standard is always high. Staff, especially the delightful Hazel, make everyone welcome. It's true that the food and drinks are on the expensive side but well worth it for special occasions. Visit and you will want to return.

Visited to celebrate family birthday. Restaurant very busy but meals arrived quickly, could see three chefs in kitchen preparing dishes. Food was excellent as was the service. Slightly on the expensive side particularly drinks. Overall everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening and consider money well spent.

Lovely food. Service good. Nice clean restaurant, nice to see it busy. Second visit will definitely visit again. Just 2 points. Bit off putting seeing waitress wipe her nose on her hand then take food out. Smaller of the Italian female working Saturday night. Other point the other Italian waitress playing with her hair before serving us and sitting on... More

We recently visited Burnham on Sea on the October half term with our 2 children aged 15 and 10. We have previously noted this restaurant but did not manage to go on our last visit. Following reviews I was determined we would not miss it on this occasion and was very pleased we did not. We went on Saturday night... More
