Well ok it isn't actually on the beach but across the road ie a few feet away. The road is closed during summer so people with walking difficulties may have a problem unless they can get around easily in a wheelchair or scooter.

This used to be the Fisherman's Catch, a great but unpretentious fish eaterie and I am pleased to say Sea Breeze continues to cook a range of very fresh fish well. The lobster and scallops were excellent - and scallops are notorious for their idiosyncrasies and difficult not to spoil in the cooking. Super chips. Grilled mackerel was also a real treat and steaks were cooked accurately as rare or medium, a welcome change. We were too stuffed for desserts so can't comment on them.

Good non-fancy wine list reasonably priced, full bar. Outdoor seating. Friendly service. Best to book weekend evenings. Will keep coming back. Best view in Swanage apart from the upstairs at Quayside.

We have eaten here a few times over the years and our last meal was typical. The food is good basic stuff - stick with fish and chips and you cannot go wrong.

The service is friendly and reasonably swift.

They do get busy in the height of the season so it's best to book.

We had a lovely romantic meal here and we couldn't understand why it wasn't busier. Great food, great value and great views. Just perfect.

Ate here for my son in laws birthday, told them it was his birthday and they decorated the table, how lovely!! The food is amazing! Brilliant menu, we had two courses for £15, which was one of the nicest meals I've had in a restaurant in a long time. Our waiter was attentive, the food was freshly cooked, excellent location. Will definitely return!

After looking at the menu we decided to visit this seafront restaurant.
Unfortunately the food was all really overcooked and almost inedible.
Overcooked scallops are really unappetising.
The waiting staff, however, were really friendly and when I explained why we were unable to finish our meals were really apologetic.
Hopefully this was a one off bad night for them.
