Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Bournemouth

Bates Restaurant

350-352 Charminster Rd, Bournemouth BH8 9RX, UK – 01202 240310

An absolute gem. Clean, great food and excellent prices. Discovered this delightful restaurant whilst having to attend a sad event at the local crematorium. Booked a table for five lunch time special. What a joy was for us all. Really excellent quality food, good service and a most pleasurable experience to eat there. Overall five star and far superior to many bigger restaurants and pubs. Good quality British cooking at it's best. To be sure of a seat book in advance. Thanks to all staff.

We went for a big family birthday meal. Lovely service and wonderful staff. The food was lovely and they have an amazing dessert selection. A great restaurant for a quiet dinner for 2, a simple Sunday lunch or a gathering!

The Cliff Top Restaurant

93 St Michael's Rd, Bournemouth BH2 5DS, UK – 01202 554665

The owner Mick and his staff are absolutely wonderful. They had great vegetarian options for me, lovely pork for my meat eating other half and they even did us a random meal of mash and veg for our 13 month old when we asked if they could. Best of all they made me a special dessert as I'm pregnant and have a craving lol. The food is out of this world amazing, the atmosphere is great and the customer service is excellent. If you're in Bournemouth you must eat here, you're a fool if you don't stop in! We came last time we took a trip to Bournemouth hence coming back again and have decided every time we come to Bournemouth, like Arnie, we'll be back!!

Highly recommend this place, my husband, 19months daughter and l really enjoyed eating there. You can taste the food was freshly cooked by someone who understand food. Everytime we visit Bournemouth we always eat there. The owners Mick and Sue are very friendly.

Miri's Restaurant

53 Bourne Ave, Bournemouth BH2 6DW, UK – 01202 551341

This is a restaurant very close to Bournemouth Square. It focuses on Germanic/Eastern European food. Dishes are freshly cooked and there is always a dish - of -the- day which is very much reflects a home cooked Eastern European meal. Prices are reasonable for the area. Service is excellent. Go before it becomes even more popular

I love this place! It has a wonderful relaxing atmosphere yet the decor, food and service give a fine dining experience. This is my fifth trip to Miri's, it has always been really good but today they excelled themselves! The service was excellent! Our waiter was very attentive but never intrusive. We opted for a bottle of prosecco and the waiter topped up our glasses throughout out lunch. The bread and olives starter was delicious (as always). I had Chicken Saute which was exquisite, my companion had the Chicken Schnitzel which was lovely and was accompanied by chips and salad that had a dressing that was perfectly matched to the leaves. Pudding was Eton Mess. Crushed meringue with chantilly cream, juicy marinaded berries, white chocolate and chopped roasted hazelnuts, absolutely scrumptious. Thank you to the Chef for producing such a wonderful meal for us and thank you to our waiter who made our trip to Miri's very special!
