Best ever poutine and Whiskey river meatloaf - plus authentic Moose head lager. It doesn’t get better than this. So support Sara and Kay who were welcoming and even got my Reggie the cockapoo some meat tasters.

The most fantastic restaurant. We came back to Bournemouth specifically to dine here. Kay and the team are amazing and so friendly and welcoming. The food is excellent (definitely get the deep fried burrito) but the top notch hospitality seals the deal. Thank you! Can’t...wait to visit again.More

Great little independent restaurant. Ran by one of the best host's you will find in a restaurant. Such a friendly welcome and made to feel comfortable as soon as we entered the building. Ordered halloumi fries, which were without doubt the best we have tasted,...with a fantastic homemade dip. We both ordered burgers & they were both outstanding, upgraded to poutine which was also amazing. What we were really impressed about how hot the food came if the kitchen, you could tell it was all freshly cooked. Well worth the wait. Still cannot believe that we still had room for desert, but if you are there you must try the Mississippi mud pie, because you will not be disappointed. To me this is comfort food at its best, just a great meal on a cold winter's night, just what is needed. Great night was had, excellent service & food. Credit must be given to all especially the chef. We will without fail return.More

Visited again after a wonderful experience a few months ago and again was delighted by all aspects of this place ! Great atmosphere, great service friendly and efficient and not rushed in and out. So great to find an independent restaurant bang in the middle...of town and at a fair price for the experience. Mac and cheese is amazing and the burgers are all freshly home made! A great selection of drinks available. Soak up the atmosphere and friendliness of the staff and the owner is hands on working with her team. Thanks for a wonderful evening see you soonMore

After seeing that this place was rated NO. 1!!! in bournemouth, my friends and I had extremely high expectations. However, we left decidedly disappointed. While the service was very friendly and the drinks were nice, the food was obscenely overpriced (£17 for a beef and...cheese baguette). While the food was by no means disgusting, it was certainly not up to a standard that could be classed as the best in town, particularly with the eyewatering price tag. I understand that independent businesses struggle to cover costs in more central locations, sometimes justifying higher prices, but the food was simply not good enough to feel worth it. The chips felt like supermarket oven chips and the pancakes were tasteless. While I understand from previous reviews that the chef is native Canadian, this does not guarantee that their cooking is automatically excellent, regardless of how authentic it claims to be. Sadly won't be returning as £100 for two people is a price tag only justifiable in the best restaurants, which I believe this is certainly not.More

My mum and I were booked in at the tapas next door but when we arrived it was in darkness. The team at Moose Kitchen offered us a table and couldn’t have been more helpful. Friendly and attentive service, great food and very reasonably priced....Would recommend without hesitation. Thank you for saving our evening!More

We booked this for dinner based on the Tripadvisor recommendation and we were not disappointed. Kay and the team gave us a fantastic welcome. The rock playlist had us singing along while we waited for food - which was incredible. The beef in the burgers...had a great flavour and it was nice to have a kids menu that went beyond the usual nuggets - 5 year old wolfed down the pizza dog. The selection of Canadian beers were a nice treat too. We will definitely be back the next time we're in the area.More

Went here for a Saturday dinner, very friendly staff, great portions and very filling food. Have never had Canadian food before and the restaurant was recommended to us. We all enjoyed it, the beef dripping dip dinner was delicious as were the poutines.
