AMAZING birthday dinner for my partner!! The food was delicious and beautifully presented Drinks and wine were perfect. The service was brilliant (very caring and thoughtful) This was our first time at Roots...and we can't wait to come back in December! Thank you for the lovely night
Thoroughly enjoyable Sunday roast. Food exquisite!
Amazing atmosphere and service! Food out of this world!! Thank you so much for the experience!!
Dining at Restaurant Roots is a fantastic experience - some interesting and creative cooking and quirky service! Its not cheap, but you get what you pay for.
Took a chance on Roots based on on line reviews and so glad I did. Enjoyed the contemporary feel of the dining area, service was excellent and the food beyond all expectation. I cannot remember the last meal I enjoyed so much for flavour. The Curfew Taster menu was a delight. I’ll definitely be returning when next in the area as I live in London.
Such an enjoyable roast lunch . Food is superb, tasty and beautifully presented . Staff couldn’t be more attentive and knowledgeable especially with the wines . Well worth a visit
We had a really special meal, celebrating a birthday. The staff went above and beyond at every stage, and every course was stunning. We would definitely recommend.
Well what can we say about Restaurant Roots, the menus are meticulously planned and the range of flavours and textures give you a different take on the dish in each mouthful. Jan’s attention to detail is second to none and his enthusiasm for his craft is infectious. Stacey’s desserts are a real treat and again thought out flavours and textures, how she manages to get things inside and looking so exquisite is beyond me. Moving to Front of house we have Geza with a wealth of knowledge on wine and cocktails which go down extremely easily, he is always happy to advise you on wine choices for your meal, to give you the best experience he can to ensure your experience is second to none. Thank you Team Roots for a fantastic dining experience.
Fantastic food, excellent service. Destined for a Michelin star one day
Superb cuisine (cooking, ingredients, presentation) and also interesting wines. A place to go to if you appreciate true haute cuisine, are of discerning tastes and want something memorable.
Amazing food, very attentive staff. They made us very feel very safe with their new protocols in line with government guidelines regarding Covid-19.
Atmosphere impacted slightly by Covid, what is already a quiet venue made uneven smaller with greater spacing as required. However, we had an incredible meal, the creativity within some dishes was amazing. Dont be put off by the price, or that it's a discovery menu rather then one of choices as you never know how it is going to be served They are trying very hard in these times to continue to provide 3 hours of high quality dining , and we weren't disappointed
Imaginative food creations that make for an excellent tasting experience.
Fabulous meal. Fantastic service. Best dining experience in Bournemouth
I have placed a review on TripAdvisor!
Absolutely fabulous, despite the current circumstances. You couldn't have done more! The food was delicious, creative and innovative - such a journey. The service was friendly and knowledgeable. Even with just 10 of us in, due to social distancing, it was a lovely relaxed evening. Just spent all night talking about the food - it was great! Thank you for your hospitality and generosity.
Amazing food. Fantastic service. We will be back!
Amazed they have not been awarded a Michelin star as yet. Food definitely as good as any we have ever been to. My tastiest meal of 2020.
Fantastic experience as always! Thank you Roots
The roast beef was beautiful and I love the wines we were recommended, great pairing.
Amazing service! Beautifully prepared and cooked food and fabulous wine recommendations. We have already booked again for the evening taster menu
An excellent meal and service.5 Star!
Four of us had the Discovery menu and wine pairing (not the driver). The menu was well thought out and we all enjoyed every course. My personal favourite was the fabulous dessert which looked like an egg when it was brought to us. This is our third visit and it is always a very special occasion.
