Buca Di Beppo - Village Hotel Bournemouth
Buca Di Beppo - Village Hotel Bournemouth
Contemporary Italian | Bournemouth, Bournemouth

The food overall was really good. However, it was not the most welcoming of restaurants. The staff weren't particularly friendly and the tables were not set up to say "good restaurant". I wouldn't rush to eat there again. Which is maybe why the ambience was not good. The room was cold and with only a handful of other diners it left a lot to be desired. More

The Green

British | Sherborne, Sherborne

I went with a friend. We had the fixed price lunch menu. .... great value for money ... six empty plates! I am a vegetarian of 30 years plus standing and there was nothing bland about either my starter or main course. We could not order until nearly 14:00 and this was not considered a problem for either our waiter or the chef (well if it was they didn’t tell us). We were celebrating my birthday and so had a Bellini to start with, we then shared a bottle of wine, had a glass of desert wine and ended with a coffee liqueur ... at no point were we made to feel like we outstayed our welcome. The service was friendly without being over zealous ... we both had a fantastic experience .... and if allowed to return and have a long lunch another day we will do so. For those who want a quicker lunch then opt for the fixed price menu minus the alcohol and you will have an absolute bargain. Thanks guys. More

Shalims Balti House
3. Shalims Balti House
Indian | Weymouth, Weymouth

We arrived for our meal at 1845 and were seated and served quickly. However as the restaurant filled up the service did suffer. There were only 2 people serving and one front of house. We had finished our food and waited at least 15 minutes before we had to call someone to ask for the bill which prompted them to clear the plates. The table next to us arrived and sat down before our meals arrived and they were still waiting to order their food as we were leaving. Shame as the restaurant was lovely and the food was good. More
