Went for an anniversary meal, food was amazing! I had the whole crab and it was to die for. Shame that we had to be outside in the cold due to Covid but the servers were very friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend to anyone who’s a fan of seafood! Will be coming back :)
Thoroughly enjoyed our Oysters and Hot Fruits da Mer. Great service as well.
Excellent outdoor terrace with lovely views of the seafront. Service was friendly and food outstanding - we'll be back!
Delicious food, great portions, lobster and crab are to die for, we definitely recommend a stopover here even if you are just passing by! Their fish selection is the highlight, we definitely will go back.
Delicious seafood food with a friendly atmosphere and a great service
Staff we're lovely. The whole seabass was cooked spot on. Great 1st meal out since the last lockdown.
Excellent food and service at this brilliant restaurant. We went here for my fiancée's birthday and they were very accommodating. Also they brought blankets for us given we had to sit outside, and turned up the heater too which was most welcome! Would definitely recommend.
Amazing experience, we will definitely be back! The food was delicious, fresh and well seasoned, the service was friendly and efficient and it's well situated.
Was during outside eating lockdown so outside was so so (cold and a bit noisy) but was good to be add. Great service from all the team. Very attentive without feeling rushed, food very tasty. Would go back.
Realy impressed with the food and especially the great service thank you!
Lovely meal, discreet friendly service and reasonable prices for the quality.
Had the fruit de mer platter and it was amazing. Reminded my of Spain so much! Great service as well.
Excellent food and service, highly recommended! Will be returning
We had a wonderful evening. Didn’t have the best table but it did offer us privacy. Just got a little cold sitting outside as it got late and there wasn’t a heater and we were in the shade.
Other than that, perfect!
Excellent meal and service. Would happily go again.
Excellent Food, particularly the Tempura Cod Cheeks and the Chicken Goujons which my daughter loved. Service was slightly slow
I had a great time the waiter and waitresses that served us was so nice I will be back! The food was incredible my favourite restaurant for sure
Went here for a special occasion. The restaurant setting is lovely and the ambience was romantic. The waiter was really accommodating and noted the comments I put with my booking about the booking being for a birthday celebration. So that was a positive. Unfortunately the food wasn’t that memorable. It wasn’t bad, just wasn’t as amazing as the other reviews and that’s what I based the booking on. We had fresh bread and olive oil/balsamic vinegar. The bread was cold instead of warm. For mains, we ordered fish of the day that came with capers, butter and garlic., fries and salad. The dressing on the fish was bland and new potatoes were just boiled. The salad was delicious. We also ordered mussels in cream and garlic sauce. Again the sauce was really bland. I always expect a punch of flavour when having muscles with garlic. The fries that were served with the dish were overcooked. And there was a lot of grit in the muscles that was really unpleasant and put me off my food. I’ve eaten in plenty of restaurants and never experienced anything like that. Overall, nice place, nice staff, but I said at the time it’s really disappointing to pay for something that you could have made better yourself. Hopefully it was just a bad day but it did ruin the birthday meal.
Excellent food - very quiet due to COVID restrictions in the area
Food great, service friendly... bar bill like all restaurants a killer ...
Very disappointing experience, no atmosphere whatsoever, considering it was Xmas eve there appeared to be very little effort taken into making the restaurant festive, we couldn’t have pre-lunch drinks which was sort of understandable but we should have been able to sit down. Peruse the menu and have a drink, think they were totally inflexible, food was ok, service was very rushed
Great restaurant- very quiet when we went. A little disappointed with the gf options and it would be great if they could offer a gf batter for fish and seafood.
Amazing food with amazing prices with a really nice ambience. The staff were great and attended to our needs with an exceptional level of service!
Felt very outdated. Lobster main not good, poor and small wine list and again poor. Service friendly but slow and has to keep asking for drinks and to order. Felt a bit like the 1980s...
Good food, full menu despite Covid. Very good service. Definitely will come back
Brilliant service and attention to detail. The food was lovely as ever and the environment was very safe.
My second visit to this restaurant.. fabulous food.. just can’t fault the place, staff or food. Can’t wait to visit again 👍
Great food, great atmosphere, great staff. Definitely one of the best places to eat in Bournemouth.
Perfect for our special occasion, just right with ambience and service
Lovely atmosphere and great food!
Helped also with the lovely addition of the pianist.
Overall, food was good, although one of the main dishes was nearly cold and had clearly been ready waiting for my partners dish. The cold main was re-cooked and was good. The restaurant eventually dealt with it well, did not charge for coffee nor for the bottle of wine which we had ordered with the meal. Live piano music was a bit loud (Friday evening), fortunately our table was at the furthest point so noise level acceptable. Wine choices a bit limited
Outstanding food and service. This is my second visit to the restaurant and I will be back again. Good choice of different seafood and Market fish option was great both times. Live music adds to a special atmosphere.
Just would of been better with music while eating.
The restaurant was very cold and we were uncomfortable. The food was good. Service was good
Absolutely fantastic food, wine and service.
NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE, I had scallops to start which could of done with caramelizing a bit more, they certainly were not fresh but frozen. Main course for me was catch of the day the catch of the day which was nice and the Bream was of a good size however serving it with just boiled potatoes and a small bowl of poorly sorted salad let it down for the price. The real let down however was my wifes crab. It consisted of a very large (re-used) crab shell with what I could only consider to be a kind of brown crab soup! the legs and claws hidden underneath the shell bore no resemblance to the size of the shell but were from what I would imagine to be a £4.00 purchase from the market, a very overpriced meal. We shared an all right cheese board washed down with port and brandy which again was nice. Including our wine the total bill was £111 pounds, certainly not worth the overall experience. We will not be returning.
We very much enjoyed our lunch at the crab. The food was very delicious
Great to be back in the Crab following lockdown. Food as good as ever. A must for all who enjoy a great seafood dinner.
Lovely food a bit quiet for Lunch but well executed menu
Fantastic food , cocktails and service. Highly recommended. It felt very safe and clean with extra covid measures in place.
