Great spot right on the quayside. Very friendly service and a good spot to people watch. I had the Thai stir fry which was delicious and sat watching the world go by. Recommend it.

“Great lunch & view on Poole Quay”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

On a sunny day, everywhere is busy on Poole Quay but managed to get a couple of tables outside for an early Sunday lunch snack for 7. Staff were very friendly and attentive and food was very good, with swift service, even though busy. Would recommend and plenty of seating inside too.

I live locally and have seen this Restaurant transform itself over the years. Now the service is impeccable and the food is great. They really care about their customers and the owner is such a joy. Recommended.

“Excellent Dining Experience!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Amazing Restaurant. We had a nice table by the window and enjoyed the atmosphere both inside and outdoors. The food was impressive and the prices reasonable and the staff were so friendly, we had Lobster Ravioli and Sea Food Risotto, which was just excellent. I sure can recommend the place!

“Yummy”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

Stopped for breakfast after cycling/camping holiday. Had American pancakes. Neal arrived, it was huge and delicious and the coffee wasps superior. Staff were very accommodating and allowed our fold up bikes to be stored inside. Definitely worth a visit here. Ignore the negative reviews.
