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.
The modest location and exterior give little indication of the wonderful dining within.
We had the classic menu and were blown away by the quality of the food. The service was great and we appreciated the dishes being explained as well as the wines.Each course was presented beautifully and portion sizes perfect. Particularly loved the lamb and the potatoes ,all the dishes were a treat as you'd never be able to recreate them at home...exactly why it's such a treat to eat here. Cherry dessert was astounding ! Definitely a place we will be returning to again.
Roots was a thrilling experience, and I would thoroughly recommend this to my friends. The food were sensational, staff were sincere in their servicing, and they made my girlfriend feel spoiled on her birthday! I would have liked more explanations about each course, however this is a minor thing compared to the overall high quality of the evening. Thanks again, Austin and Briony.
Lovely dining experience, great food and helpful service.
Fine dining at last comes to Bournemouth! Thanks for a lovely evening. We wish you every success.
A wonderful dining experience - unhurried and the tasting menu makes you taste flavours you would not usually choose. All courses were visually exciting and tasted wonderful.
Great meal and friendly service. Excellent
Great food, delicious and interesting.
We had a lovely meal in Restaurant Roots, the front of house was so knowledgeable about all the food and drinks and made the evening for both my partner and I. I would highly recommend eating here, the venue is small with limited covers, but it makes for an intimate atmosphere.
The food is exceptional. It gets better and better with clean and complex flavours. Why haven't they got a Michelin star!?!?
Fantastic food. Lovely relaxed dining room with great devor. Great staff with lots of knowledge. The only minor suggestions for improvement would be to perhaps look at some of the small details e.g. being careful not to spill wine /water on the table when pouring. But these are very minor. Overall a fantastic restaurant.
Wonderful food. Lovely to be welcomed back.
Excellent gastronomic experience at Roots, a first for our family of three teenagers. The whole mini and classic menus were delicious, the atmosphere very pleasant, and our kids highly appreciated the « bread ceremony ». A real original treat
An absolute delight. The food was beyond words and the staff were very attentive and friendly. Cannot wait to go back. Cannot recommend this place enough. This is a foodies dream!
That was one of the most memorable and incredible lunch’s yet!
It was an amazing experience. Great food ,lovely atmosphere and entertaining. Will return.
I’m lucky enough to have eaten in many restaurants both in this country and abroad, this compares very favourably with them all, we chose to have the matching wines which I found to enhance the dishes and be well matched and can’t fault a single aspect of our experience, if this restaurant was located elsewhere they could busier (and no doubt more expensive) but as it was a midweek night it could be that that allowed for such warm personnel service. We will be back as I believe this place is a gem. Good luck Roots for the future, you deserve to be very successful. Ed and Claire
Lovely evening, food very creative and delicious. Well balanced menu and we were impressed at the options for non-meat eaters. Wine flight was excellent value. Service interesting and informative. Would return.
We really enjoyed our dinner at Roots. The food was excellent as was the service. We have already recommended them to our family and friends.
We have never been disappointed at Roots. Stunning food that pushes the boundaries, excites and surprises you!
