“Good food, reasonably priced good atmosphere”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

I visited here on the last night of our holiday. The staff were very welcoming and were quick to find us a table. Although the restaurant was very busy our order was taken quickly and we didnt have to wait too long for our food. We shared our pizzas between two, they were really tasty and plenty big enough for 2 when accompanied by fries and salad. All in all a nice way to end our holiday.

“Packed in like sardines”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

Nice pizza, OK service but we were packed in like sardines - very little space between the tables. We won't be returning.

“Typical Italian”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Four of us went on a sunday evening so had no trouble getting a table without a reservation. Good choice on the menu of typical italian food. The pizzas were excellent, nice crispy base with plenty of toppings. Service was good and reasonably priced. Would recommend this restaurant.

“the freshest of fish”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

We had a lovely lunch on Friday. The food is so fresh and a large menu choice ranging from pizzas and pasta to fresh fish and vegetables and tasty meat dishes. Will definitely be back again and again.

“Reasonable”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

I've been visiting Swanage for many years and have always hankered after a visit to the Cafe Tratt. We went as a group of four and the food was ok but not great - service was so so. A shame. It could offer so much more.
