Had a really great meal here sitting outside with the views of the beach and sea stretching out before us at sunset. Lovely food, with absolutely great service.

I came here with Friends who live in the area. They took us out for dinner and was looking forward to a nice Italian by the sea. On arrival we did have to queue with other guest even though we had a booking. We were however welcomed very warmly by what seemed to be the owner. The restaurant was oddly... More

Visited with family in August, panini, shared pizza and fish and chips. All really good standard. Great service and reasonable prices, staff happy to serve the pizza on two plates for us to share. Childrens menu available and next door to childs play area and right on seafront with great views of the bay. We will be back.

Great food and even greater value for money. Service was ok but we did wait longer for desserts than we would have liked.

Visited this restaurant as a group of 12 including 7 children. The food was delicious. They did get two of the children's orders wrong but it was rectified quickly. I have to say that main courses were the best of the meal. Very disappointingly bland tiramisu. Views on a sunny day would be stunning i think but unfortunately it was... More

Popped in to this great resteraunt on one of our many bike rides across the seafront, good for coffee stop or dinner, great service with a smile and a lovely menue to chose from. Good for nights out and parties with an excelent view of the beach, on a clear day/evining looks fantastic. Well worth a visit Gordon/Julie Bournemouth

This was one of the places that the owner of the hotel we stayed in recommended (Review about the Grovefield Manor Hotel to follow): We took a nice walk down to and then along the beach. Situated right in front of the beach, this makes for a very nice holiday athmosphere. Intially, I was a little worried, because it was... More

Great setting and nice restaurant but staff weren't very welcoming without a booking, even though we came in at 6pm well before most of their bookings. We just had a quick pizza for us which was average and pasta for our preschooler which was bland. It's convenient and has a good play area out back for kids but otherwise wouldn't... More
