Lobster was delicious as was the wine. A shame that at least 5 seperate groups of people were playing Pokemon Go within feet of our table on the terrace which blocked the amazing view of the beach and sea. Service was great too :)

Should be amongst the top places in Bournemouth to dine in, especially if you are a tourist. Great walk from westcliff along pier approach and this is right on the beach with seating both inside and out. Food is top-notch with seafood specialty. I was staying at the Marriott westcliff and the concierge suggested 'The Crab' to go to, but... More

Staff is not very aware of what is going on, and the food is OK, good but not great. I'm guessing the reason it stands out is because it's by far the nicest place to eat along the beach in Bournemouth... Would recommend it if you want a nice meal, but cannot (do not wish to) walk or get into... More

Not being a great fish fan I went here, surprisingly no cod on the menu, which is the nations number one fish. It's ok if you are a "fish fan" and you will eat anything with gills but, if you are not don't bother going on the off chance that there will be something that you like on the menu.... More

Order arrived at 9.40am and I was handed a plate with 2 slices of sourdough toast, a plate of butter and 2 jars of jam/marmalade on... More

We decided to come for some drinks and deserts while walking along the promenade. Since we've mentioned we weren't coming for meals, we have been told to go away as it was only open for lunch meal. It would be totaly acceptable apart from the fact the place was half empty and when we looked around, nobody was actually having... More

We went to the West Beach recently for an evening meal and the food was really good. We both had mussels to start then my partner had the lobster and I had the crab. It was all so lovely and fresh. We asked for a table by the window which was lovely as you can look out over the ocean.... More
