Now I think we are all aware that the WestBeach restaurant is one of the premier restaurants in town. However the way they run their breakfast service is beyond belief. On two occasions now we rocked up to the restaurant before 11am (breakfast service ends at 11.30am) only to be told they can't fit us in. One quick look around... More

Food was good, and the tables outside are just perfect when its sunny, with a direct view on the sea ... Service was pretty quick and nice. I would probably go again if I ever go back to Bournemouth

Thoroughly enjoyed its location, ambience and food. My wife was in her element with the lobster and king prawns. Essential to book to obtain terrace seating on a sunny day.

Great lunch made extra special with the sun shining and eating outside. We have been many times to this restaurant and you really can't match it anywhere locally for fresh fish. We had the starters from the specials menu of mackerel which was good but we all felt on the small size for the price. Mains were all excellent and... More

Had lunch here on a great warm, sunny spring day. A table in the window, overlooking the beach was wonderful. Food was good but £15 for medium piece of fish and chips is really a bit steep. Service was a little condescending too.
