We came here on a recommendation from the hotel we were staying at , we also received a discount voucher by booking through the hotel ( Ramada Encore ) . We have been fortunate to have traveled around the UK and Australia extensively and had never been to a Greek Restaurant ! On arrival staff were friendly and showed us... More

Soon after entering this great place we were greeted by the great decoration of the restaurant, we felt we was on holiday in the Mediterranean. Service was wonderful with great friendly staff. The food was good. Happy to come back again.

We often visit Bournemouth and this time chose to go Greek, I have to admit it wasn't our first choice, but I'm glad it's were we ended up. We had the meze; large portions and delicious. Authentic atmosphere and friendly service. Would definitely recommend.

Very nice food! The waiter was very nice, made sure everything was perfect with my meal. Well recommended! Nice atmosphere and you can tell a lot of effort has been put in to make everything look good. With some very creative interior makes you feel like you are eating in Greece!

The quality of the food was very good, not too over seasoned. The pitta bread was of very good quality a lot better than what you'd usually have at home. The prawn saganaki was very good quality too. The waiter was very friendly, attentive and helpful throughout our meal at Zorba's.

Zorbas is a small, narrow restaurant but the food is great and menu is wide. I popped in at lunchtime to ask if they could handle a group of ten that evening. Of all ages. When we arrived at seven tables were turned and chairs flew. And in minutes wine bottle orders were arriving along with meze and lemonade for... More

We recently attended a family funeral in Bournemouth and having eaten here in the past I took the family out for evening meal, we ordered the mezze and it was fantastic, you need to be really hungry to get through all that food. I would also like to give a special mention to the waiter Petrus who could not do... More

Two bottles of Retsina later, we had a lovely Greek meal. I enjoyed telling the waiter the story of how Retsina was created - teaching the Greeks, Greek folklore! Anyway, it's a nice clean friendly restaurant, reasonably priced - well worth a trip!

We visited here with our daughter who has recently started at the Arts Uni in Bournemouth. Not really knowing the area that well, it was the decor that attracted us in - traditional blue and white with a really lovely eclectic assortment of tables and chairs. It was a mid afternoon late lunch so not that busy. The staff were... More
