Booked a table here for our Daughter's graduation dinner. Thursday night and a little quiet but there was a warm welcome and attentive service. Choice of menu was extensive and the food was excellent. We had a really enjoyable evening.

We thought we were visiting a student area but among other visitors was a 50th birthday celebration. We only had a main course each but they were very impressive. On the basis of one visit and two dishes I cannot give it an excellent. The staff approach was very good and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Venue was great. Staff very friendly! Nice decor and good that they allowed under 18s. One problem though! Poor value for money on the food due to the fact you're not allowed to cater for yourselves and what you got for £630 was extremely minimal in my opinion. Food gone within half an hour and wasn't replenished! I'm glad i... More

We are disappointed to read that you were not happy with the buffet supplied for your party. As we do for all parties, we showed you the buffet beforehand to ensure you are happy with it all. Unfortunately with buffets, you do get people who take more than others, only then to see it go to waste. We would have... More

Staying in Bournemouth and tried this restaurant on spec. Lots of people and a buzzy atmosphere. Service very good even though so busy; no upselling. Delicious bowl of pasta with smoked salmon, vodka, Parmesan and tomatoes. Very rare for my husband to have food envy but he did over my lunch today! Even more delighted to find that the Kayla...

Pleasant contemporary decor. Staff were friendly and enquired how our meals were after every course. Starters were disappointing. Opted for retro prawn cocktail but it was served on a plate without any bread or lemon so actually inferior to the original bistro classic. Calamari could have been any kind of seafood in crumb batter. Mains of chicken risotto and pasta... More

Made the reservation in the restaurant. It was highly recommended to us by our friends that live in Bournemouth. We had a great table and from the beginning was everything perfect. The staff was excellent and the food very, very tasty. Menu is excellent for everyone. Highly recommend it!
