My second visit to Brasserie Blanc, this time with family, which includes a chef living & working in S.W. France so I was a little apprehensive ... but we had a lovely evening! Very efficient and rather witty waiting staff, a great atmosphere with plenty of diners enjoying themselves on a Tuesday evening, and rather lovely food. Lovely sea view too of course. My cheese souffle starter wasn't quite as scrumptious as The Jetty manages, but still very nice, fabulous sauce. The asparagus & poached egg combo from the specials board was a delight! 'The chef' very much enjoyed his suckling pig main, the Malabar Fish Curry was a distinct success and my Salmon & Crab fishcake with wilted leaks one of the tastiest ever! And very filling, I really should have resisted the side order of chips. Washed down with a delicious bottle of Pinot Noir = very happy customers. I may well become a regular if they keep this up :)

Bournemouth is a funny place for eating out - restaurants come and go so I hope Brasserie Blanc is here for a while. Absolutely perfect pistachio souffle. Quite noisy on a Saturday evening.

Our first visit here, and it will not be the last,
Arrived a little early, so had a drink in the bar, a great selection of drinks, friendly staff, made our way in to the restaurant, great selection of wines, champagne from around the world and very knowledgeable wine waiter, waiting staff were all fantastic, very polite, witty and extremely professional. Only came here as a friend said it's the best place for mussels, so we both had them for starter, they did not disappoint, cooked beautifully, only thing lacking was a slice of bread and butter to soak up the sauce. Main courses were equally cooked to perfection. Boeuf Bourguignon and a Malabar fish curry. Beef was nice and tender. Fish curry was very pleasing, I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for somewhere different.

We are a family of four (kids are age 5 & 7). We had lunch here on a Saturday.

Our lunch was faultless - there was an incredible choice of food - it was a pleasant change to struggle to decide what we wanted because there was so much to love. The menu presented a great choice of fish & seafood choices - the best I’ve seen in this area.

One of our kids is vegetarian - the kids menu had great choices for both veggie and meat eaters.

I had cocktails with lunch and they were really well made - not the cheap rubbish you get in some chain seafront places.

The staff were friendly, welcoming and accommodating. A wedding party arrived to eat at the time same time as us and their service to us remained faultless.

We will definitely be returning, it was so nice to enjoy our lunch in front of the sea.

Good afternoon Naominicoll,

Its great to read you enjoyed your dinning experience with us yesterday, I love our new spring menu there is some great new additions along side some Raymond Blanc classics plus head chef Ishmael sources some fantastic local seafood for our special boards, paired alongside some delightful fine wines.

Kids are by far the hardest to please with food they put most hardcore critic to shame, so its great to read we hit the mark for your little ones!!

Myself and the brasserie team look forward to welcoming you and your family back again soon

Kind regards
