About Rick Stein Sandbanks
With views across the water you can enjoy a casual lunch with classic dishes such as fish and chips and moules marinière, alongside seafood dishes including Dover sole meunière, turbot hollandaise and fruits de mer.
Excellent first visit. Service outstanding from engaging and well-informed staff.
Very pleasant evening.
Thank you so much for the table by the window! The prefect place to meet up with old friends
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and it was great we could bring our dog too and didn’t need to worry about sandy feet. The service was excellent, everyone was friendly and attentive and the food choices were great. I was especially pleased that there was a gluten free menu so I didn’t need to try to work it all out from the main menu. The GF bread was lovely. Wine list was a bit pricey overall but that wouldn’t stop us coming again.
Always a pleasure to enjoy great food and wine. Coupled with good service its almost unbeatable in the area.
Lovely table and view. The Brill was excellent!!
We booked two tables for a birthday celebration and Rick Stein helped to make it a very special family event. The food was delicious and the service could not have been more attentive. Thank you, Rick Stein and crew.
Wonderful food and experience. We will be back.
Best service we have had in a long time. Stopped coming as it was a little below par before, but after lunch yesterday, it is now my favourite to come again. Thank you for such a lovely afternoon.
Unfortunately due to a family commitment I had to dine alone but this did not alter my experience as I was extremely well looked after by Michelle. Fantastic, attentive service throughout!
The food was good, the service was excellent but a bit pricey
Beautiful location, delicous freshly cooked food with great service. What ciould be better than sitting looking out over Poole harbour having lunch on a sunny autumn day!!
Lunch for 6. Delicious food for us all. Rick's signature wines - great and matched the food perfectly! Excellent children's menu at a very reasonable price.Minor hiccough with wine quickly sorted by very observant waitress. Only real complaint - the petit fours - very sweet jellies and rather bland white chocolate truffles didn't complement the coffee. After a lovely meal we didn't need such sweetness. A small flavoursome dark chocolate or a small piece of candied bitter orange rind would have been so much more welcome
Booked a table for 8.00pm, sat down at 8.45, order not taken till 9.00. Service was poor, waiter completely disinterested. Food was ok £16 for two tiny scallops! Fish Curry was alright, nothing to shout about. One positive the Singapore chilli crab was great, shame I had to rush it to catch the last ferry.
Best Cod and Chips I have ever had, lovely evening, service was impeccable.
First visit to Rick Stein Sandbanks having dined at Padstow many times before. Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and would certainly dine there again.
Unfortunately my husband's meal was ruined because the blond ray dish that he ordered smelt disgusting. When the dish was taken back to the Chef he said "there is an ammonia smell that comes with the fish and it will not harm you". That is no excuse to offer such a dish. The staff were very good and refunded the price of the dish. I also object to paying £4.50 for a bottle of water. Tap water should be offered as an alternative. The member of staff should have informed us that the water was chargeable instead of asking us if we wanted still or sparkling water. Apart from that I do like the restaurant and will return.
Had a lovely meal with friends on Saturday lunch time. The food was exceptional, the staff very friendly and helpful. Beautiful view over Sandbanks. Would definitely go back.
Food was lovely, made better by the pleasant and efficient waiting staff. Spectacular view of Poole Harbour from the table by the window.
You always keep up a very high standard of food and service.' The setting is great, this one of my wife's favourite restaurants. May this continue
Service excellent , friendly, helpful & efficient. Although busy we weren't kept waiting long between courses. The food was the high standard we'd expect after our special birthday lunch a year ago. A nice touch was a plate with Happy Anniversary on it with 4 petit fours thanks to our waiter Ramon. Thoroughly recommend.
A lovely meal, great menu and wine list. Great service and nice atmosphere. Would definitely go back.
From the start when i asked for signed menus for my parents 80th birthdays, to the table, food and service,one can only complement this establishment for their 1st class customer care and attention to detail. Superb !
Service was amazing
We always enjoy lunch and dinner at Sandbanks we were first in for dinner so it was a little quiet to begin with but soon became busy we really enjoyed.
