Very nice food! The waiter was very nice, made sure everything was perfect with my meal. Well recommended! Nice atmosphere and you can tell a lot of effort has been put in to make everything look good. With some very creative interior makes you feel like you are eating in Greece!

The quality of the food was very good, not too over seasoned. The pitta bread was of very good quality a lot better than what you'd usually have at home. The prawn saganaki was very good quality too. The waiter was very friendly, attentive and helpful throughout our meal at Zorba's.

Zorbas is a small, narrow restaurant but the food is great and menu is wide. I popped in at lunchtime to ask if they could handle a group of ten that evening. Of all ages. When we arrived at seven tables were turned and chairs flew. And in minutes wine bottle orders were arriving along with meze and lemonade for... More

We recently attended a family funeral in Bournemouth and having eaten here in the past I took the family out for evening meal, we ordered the mezze and it was fantastic, you need to be really hungry to get through all that food. I would also like to give a special mention to the waiter Petrus who could not do... More

Two bottles of Retsina later, we had a lovely Greek meal. I enjoyed telling the waiter the story of how Retsina was created - teaching the Greeks, Greek folklore! Anyway, it's a nice clean friendly restaurant, reasonably priced - well worth a trip!

We visited here with our daughter who has recently started at the Arts Uni in Bournemouth. Not really knowing the area that well, it was the decor that attracted us in - traditional blue and white with a really lovely eclectic assortment of tables and chairs. It was a mid afternoon late lunch so not that busy. The staff were... More

When we arrived at the restaurant, I was pleasantly surprised by the lovely decor and atmosphere. I went to Greece recently so it took me right back. Unfortunately the food was really disappointing. I was given a tonne of salad with my starter which was rather unnecessary and the flavours just didn't work well together. I opted to have the... More

This fantastic restaurant has a authentic Greek feel to it. Good choice of dishes on the menu. The food was tasty and served by a very friendly and helpful waiter who despite being busy made time to talk to you. Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning.
