Description: The last word in seaside chic, Bournemouth’s Cottonwood Boutique Hotel is home to The Garden Restaurant, a stylish dining room in a sublime setting. Atop the cliffs looking down on Bournemouth’s seafront, The Garden Restaurant is the ideal combination of timeless elegance and contemporary charm. The bold wallpaper, antique furnishings and understated but glamorous use of chandeliers makes the room feel bright and modern while maintaining a sense of classic cosiness. Excellent value for money from start to finish, The Garden Restaurant’s menu is an experience in flavour with ideas from all over the world blended in inventive and exciting ways and bold British additions providing that touch of familiarity too. A fine wine list is offered alongside with hand picked selections representing both quality and affordability.

We went to The Garden Restaurant for our Valentines meal, and could not have been happier. The decor from the moment you walk into the hotel is wonderful and we felt instantly that we were somewhere special. The bar area is beautiful, and the staff very helpful. Once seated at our table, things only improved further, with a plethora of helpful and friendly staff, in another beautifully decorated part of the hotel. Our meal was sublime, with each course being exceptionally well cooked, and with good portions. Upon leaving the hotel, the friendly receptionist ordered us a taxi, and we left feeling extremely satisfied. Everything was very reasonably priced, and we would definitely recommend going here.

The food here was great - we had delicious starters followed by steak. Each of us had them cooked differently and each was perfect!
The desert was absolutely AMAZING!!!
The young lady serving us was lovely too... would definitely recommend this to everyone.

We were tempted here by their sign proclaiming 'three courses and wine for £15'. Initially stopping by for afternoon tea (which was excellent - outstanding service at the bar and great quality) we returned later for dinner. We weren't disappointed. Service by the skilled restaurant supervisor and his assistant was top-notch (perhaps even a little too efficient - once a plate was cleared while my mouth was still full). We paid to upgrade the sauvignon blanc to a bottle, and our main courses to steaks. Both were excellent, as were the starters and desserts. In the end, we had three courses and a bottle of wine, including steaks each, for under £50. The same meal, probably poorer quality, and worse service, would have cost me double in London. We were well impressed, and noted that instead of responding to competition by cutting costs, raising quality really has given the Bournemouth resident or visitor excellent choice of dining. First class.
