We accidentally stumbled upon this restaurant when looking for lunch during our visit to Bournemouth and we were expecting a fairly average lunch. However the food was actually really nice, as well as the interior design being surprisingly comforting. We decided to come back the next day as we quickly agreed that this was the best place we'd eaten at... More

A limited menu but perfectly adequate. good price and great service. Could do to serve olives etc but supplied peanuts in a cup as an alternative. Still good. Great humoured staff.

The Beau Monde Bistro is accessible direct from the Lower Gardens, and there are enticing boards inviting you to try it. Pleasant but not exciting would be my verdict. Food & drink good, but externally on the patio some might be put off by the tree and ground rats.

I actually wanted to give a "good" rating, but this isn't available. Cheapest larger shandy in Bournemouth. Service excellent. A bit school refectorish, though darker. My companion enjoyed the shared seafood platter, but I felt that the prawns and mussels were overcooked.

We ate here for Sunday lunch to celebrate my Birthday having never been before, although walked past several times. It was sunny and we sat on The Terrace and the food was absolutely fantastic, beautifully presented and excellent quality. Servings were large also and the staff were very friendly. Can't wait to return.

The Bistro is quite dark and lacks character and warmth. However, the food was very nice and the staff are very pleasant and helpful. Would eat here again. 20% off if you are a guest at the hotel.

We planned a family reunion and the staff here were so helpful arranging a semi private room for our party off the main dining room. The support we got before the event was superb making everything on the day go very smoothly. The meal was delicious and a very good price for our party of 12 people. The starters were... More
