“Best food in Bournemouth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

After visiting Bournemouth many times for various holidays and family meetups I can safely say I have never experienced any restaurant that exerts the level of caliber or class that is the Libertine. The building itself is fantastic with many different areas for all possible events! We have used most up to this point!! The food is excellent, nobody is our party has ever had any real complaints and anything that was raised was deal with instantly and efficiently. A few reviews call this pub food which I believe is a misdirection, it is simply high quality dining for a surprising price for a plush part of the country! Excellent for all groups. No Concerns. Experience it!

“Great food, excellent service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

We recently went to The Libertine for an evening meal, we were very happy with our food which was cooked perfectly and came to a very reasonable price. What made the evening even better was the outstanding service from our waitress Hayley. She was lovely and welcoming and very attentive without being overbearing. All in all, a very lovely evening, thank you Hayley!!
