Had a lovely lunch with friends. Great window seat with a sea view. Light and airy in the restaurant. The service was excellent. And the food was quality. Cooked fresh and presented very well. Highly recommended.

The restaurant is right on the beach at Branksome Chine, overlooking Bournemouth Bay. We had booked lunch on a beautiful sunny day, and were offered a table either inside or outside. As the weather was so good, we chose outside and were not disappointed by the amazing view of all that was going on the beach and water. The menu... More

This is my first visit to this restaurant and as a fish lover , high hopes. The view from the restaurant was stunning - if only the food and service was as good.

Managed to get a table on the terrace on the hottest day of the year after a dog walk. The staff couldn't have been friendlier and the service was fantastic. Yummy food, huge jug of Pimms and a couple of hours people watching - this restaurant is a gem.

Great restaurant on the beach. Food has always been good and we have been going there occasionally for many years. The menu is quite small and could do with changing and would love them to put the tuna teriyaki back on the menu! It's not cheap but you get what you pay for.
