About Restaurant Roots
We are a small 18 seater neighbourhood restaurant specialising in tasting menu experiences. We pride ourselves on good service, good food and wine, and hope to give you an evening that will make you think differently about dining out.
We had an amazing evening. The food was delicious, such interesting tastes/textures/combinations of the freshest delectable ingredients.We were well looked after from the minute we entered the restaurant and overall it was an experience to cherish. Thank you Roots!
Beautiful food, exceptional service, would strongly recommend
Our party of 3 felt very looked after - food and wine superb
great experience all round! food was amazing and service was polite and professional
Fantastic food, fresh and innovative coupled with excellent service
It was an amazing meal last weekend and we have been to the restaurant 3 times in total. We loved it every time. But we do prefer the old cheese course when we get a selection of different cheese as it was one of the highlights of the meal. It was a shame that the cheese course wasn't as spectacular as before.
Loved our evening, food was amazing, staff made us feel very welcome and special! Timings for courses were excellent as well - didn’t feel rushed at all- will definitely book again!
At last a truly outstanding restaurant in Bournemouth! Roots is by a large margin the best restaurant we have eaten in in the Bournemouth/Poole area. It's not cheap of course, but for the quality of food and the level of service it is excellent value. The food is at least as good as a number of Michelin starred restaurants in London that have cost us far more. And the atmosphere is so much more intimate and friendly.
Lovely dinner as always - Gluten & Dairy free friendly with notice :-)
We have been meaning to go here for ages, and finally managed to get along on a Thursday evening. The place was full, on a lovely evening, and there was a very pleasant atmosphere in the restaurant. Service was excellent from first to last, with informative details about the menu, and exceptional advice on the wines available. The food was fantastic, presentation was superb, and the taste was really very good. Will definitely be returning.
As always a perfect evening, amazing food and amazing hosts....more special memories to put us on until we return... Thanks
Roots continues to delight.
Excellent thank you
Lovely restaurant with outstanding service and beautiful food. Definetly one for special occasions.
Gorgeous food and wine experience. Need to book ahead and be prepared to pay for what you get. Fabulous.
Both food and service were fantastic. There was only one negative which was the appalling behaviour of another table - which was outside of the control of management but very sad to see. Please don't visit a restaurant if you just want to get drunk and not be able to eat your food - it's not on especially as it changes the atmosphere but wow it was so great when they left! Wonderful food, wonderful service and fantastic wine flight. Thank you
Everything about the evening was fantastic. A full restaurant on a very very cold night in February speaks volumes thanks again
We had such a lovely meal with our grandma on Saturday. We were a bit late and the staff were very understanding about it. We had a fabulous time and the food was delicious. The staff were absolutely brilliant. Thank you! :-) we will be recommending you to all our family in Bournemouth.
Exquisite food in an intimate setting with the most attentive and enthusiastic hosts
The food at roots is exquisite. Such creative combinations that work so well and are utterly sublime. The service is always excellent and wine chosen to accompany our food was spot on. Can’t wait to go back again.
Always a pleasure to dine here, all the staff are very polite and welcoming. Food is of a really high standard with the texture and flavours well thought out. The wines chosen to complement each dish again are well thought through and really enhance the dining experience. Keep up the good work Team Roots.
I would like to come back and have two of evening on the discovery menu.
A wonderful experience with fantastic food and service. Nowhere else like it locally; original and unique in more ways than one. We are already planning our next visit.
This was our first visit to Roots and we were charmed by the people and the place. Although we had viewed the sample menu on the website we were not prepared for the quality of the food, which was wonderful. We were repeatedly commenting on how many flavours could be packed into a small mouthful and the stunning, strange combinations that just seemed to work. We have a great evening.
