I only popped in for a midday cup of tea, but was told that food had to be taken too. So I ordered a light lunch and was amazed by the quality. The staff were amazing...knowledgeable and interested. They seem to have fresh fish in abundance for creatively made dishes. I had a crab cake, which was so nice I... More

We had a day out in Bournemouth and after visiting the Oceanarium and a stroll along the promenade we came here for lunch. Even though we are only forty minutes away I still called to book ahead, as I always do (people who don't book end up being disappointed!). We had a window seat looking out across the beach and...

Please note..if driving from quite a distance, like London for instance, and planning to visit, food is only served at specific times, not open all hours, 9am-10pm as per website and tourist guidelines.... With BIC round the corner, you'd think the restaurant would accommodate from 5/5.30 ish, but don't be fooled.....

Had an amazing meal here on Saturday night with great service. Food was well presented, fresh and tasted fantastic! We sampled the specials board and went for the Hake fillet which was cooked to perfection. The Smoked salmon pate appetizer was also gorgeous! Would 100% recommend this restaurant. The only slight let down was the wine, we ordered a Red... More

My husband and I visited for breakfast. The restaurant was reasonably busy for a sunny but cold December day. The staff were friendly and efficient and we were soon seated at a window table. My husband ordered the full English and I opted for eggs florentine. We ordered a pot of tea and a decaf coffee but the waiter brought... More

My partner & I went for lunch at this lovely restaurant which is right on the front overlooking the beach. The restaurant itself has a nice atmosphere about it and we were made very welcome when we walked in. We were given a lovely table overlooking the beach and sea and although it was the end of November the sun... More

lovely spot for cold or warm weather. Only had coffee and cakes but it was bloody tasty. We were served by a really lovely Irish girl! She had time to have a quick. Bit expensive but worth it for the service and surroundings x

Place is great especially during summer. Great location and view. A little bit pricey but you will always get good quality food. With not bad wine list. Always good service. Great place to celebrate birthdays or just to treat yourself.

Booked online and went here for my wife's birthday. Amazing location and great experience on a cold sunny winter's day. Had a great view of the beach and the sea as it was pretty empty being winter but the sun was shining and it was amazing. The food was amazing also. We had oysters to start and half lobster and...
