Had dinner here with salmon pate and pasta. The food was pretty good and the atmosphere was nice and cozy. Quite a long service but I bet It is reasonable since the restaurant was full at this moment.

Went here on our first night in Bournemouth as it was close to our hotel and we had two "starving" teens with us! Very reasonably priced for delicious and authentic tasting food. Would definitely recommend

They had enough trouble understanding what a vegetarian was during my visit. Go elsewhere!
