Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We wanted to try somewhere new in Bournemouth and stumbled on this place which only had 5 star reviews. It seemed too good to be true! But no, having visited, I can truly say it is 5 star all round. Food is interesting, cocktails great,...service knowledgeable and just the right amount of attentiveness. We have already booked to return and can’t wait. Try this place - you won’t be disappointed by The Place!More

Just discovered this wonderful place. The restaurant is decorated well, music is playing creating a nice ambiance. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The menu is imaginative and varied including vegan options. The food was absolutely delicious, we had 3 meals: 1. mini flatbread with...meat 2. Vegan nachos 3. Vegan curry. All were fantastically prepared and presented. This 'Place' is a real gem and a shining star in a town with mostly average and 'fast foodie' type restaurants. Highly recommended and as locals this will become a 'go to' option for us. We're going back to try the breakfast Sunday morning as the menu options look great.More

We had an excellent lunch here yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact so much so we returned for breakfast this morning. I had the vegan full breakfast and my husband had Franceshina, both really tasty. Our new favourite restaurant, we will return!

A long awaited return from Cornwall to this superb restaurant. Food was excellent, and the owners cooking and waiting tables made it a real family-run, caring experience. A couple arrived who wanted items from the lunch menu and not the evening one, but they happily...obliged. Nothing is too much trouble. This restaurant should be in the top 5 in Bournemouth, as we've tried many, but this is consistently far better than most. Prices are reasonable too for the quality of food. Menus change each season. My prawn fritters and skate wing were delicious. We've booked to return before we go home.More

Under the radar spot, book a table while its still relatively easy to do so, once more people know about this PLACE booking will be essential.

Family owned independent business, flying somewhat under the radar with some great dishes and fusions, surely the most varied restuarant in Bournemout, has a mix of traditional foods and some international dishes, Poland, Eastern Europe for exampe, all freshly cooked and prepared, food to suit...every taste, don't forget to try a dessert and the coffee is pretty good to. Its certainly not what we expected to find in Bournemouth Triangle in terms of quality and price. Be prepared to be suprised in a good way!More

We found the ambience and background music outstanding and were greeted with a warm welcome The menu was short but we each remarked that everything sounded good and we could have tried all the menu. In the end two of us had scallops, one mussels...and the other that beef wrap. Each was delicious and very acceptable. The main courses were two of the days special, red fish and the others lamb shanks. Beautifully presented and very tasty, we finished off with Elton ness and a banoffee pie all washed down with an excellent red wine. Thank you. We will be back.More
