“Crab sandwich to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Went there on trip advisor recommendation big airy space decor was nice for the establishment and where it was on the harbour waitress was busy but said hello and apologised for us waiting 5 mins
We're we're not bothered as we had time to take in the menu and surroundings I ordered a hot choc and a crab sandwich dragged my wife there for that reason it didn't disappoint very good my wife had cream tea she said that was lush.when we visit Weymouth again we will go back

Thankyou for your comments. The crab sandwich is a staple on our menu, and is always terribly popular. Hopefully next time you visit we can add the only thing that could make it better - sunshine!!!

“'perfect evening'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

I went here on the 22/3/14 and it was amazing. We were over an hour early for our booked table because it didn't take as long to travel down as expected. But upon arrival we sat in the bar area and had some drinks. When we went to our table we had already looked at the menus and had decided what we wanted. I had the duck spring rolls and they were delicious. For mains I had sea bass with asparagus, a pea puree, and chips and some veg, I finished all of it.Everyone else thoroughly enjoyed theirs too! We stayed for pudding and more drinks too. A lovely night with a nice and helpful waitress, and we were spoilt for choice with food! Will definitely be coming back. Thank you so much :D

“Meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

A group of us visited the bistro having been several times before. Three of us ordered the steak but ended up leaving half of it as it was fatty and chewy. It was more like braising steak.

Thank you for taking the time to register your comments. I always feel genuinely upset to receive a review such as this. You have obviously visited before and have been happy with the standard of the food and service, which makes it even more gutting that you were disappointed. I am very sorry that the steak was not our usual high quality, and I would have loved the opportunity to correct this error at the time. We work with our suppliers very closely, indeed we have relayed your comments directly to them!! and will do our best to ensure that this will not happen again. I hope that should you visit us again in the future you will let us know at the time if you have any issues so we can resolve them immediately.

“Another fab dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

Nearly everytime friends come to stay, whether from abroad or from elsewhere in the UK I bring them here for the atmosphere, great food and a fair selection of wines. Service and price aswell as good food and atmosphere have made this a popular and regular destination. Highly recommended
