Everyone was very friendly and service was really quick despite being very busy ...was a lovely touch when we received our desserts and they had written ‘Happy Anniversary’ in chocolate ...all courses delicious and great value for money. We will be back.

This was our third visit to Sandbanks. We went to celebrate my daughters 18th birthday. The service and food was exceptional plus a little extra special touch at the end of our meal. Thank you

We had a lovely lunch, thank you. Everyone was incredibly helpful and attentive, but not overly so. Just right. We will definitely be returning.

Perfectly fried hake, good "Rick Stein's White" (Spain) and a perfect service made our day. Even the Espresso was strong and full of flavour, a nice "crema" included.

We have been coming to Rick Steins for many years now but the service and quality of the food for the first time this time were really disappointing. We had recommended it to a friend who was down for the day and we all ended up waiting over an hour from arrival to be served our food and when it came the Brill for two was poorly filleted, a bit over cooked and the sauce too strongly flavored with lemon. We did not enjoy the meal and it took us a while to attract a waiters attention to ask for the bill and leave. This was a massive disappointment to us as we have always counted on the restaurant locally to consistently deliver high quality food but unfortunately this time it definitely did not and on what was a fairly expensive menu option that we choose . We will probably give it one more chance but I do hope we wont be this disappointed again.

Where we were seated we could see a picture of three girls walking across a beach. I appreciate it is a print, but could you tell me who painted the original please. Thanks, Roger Messias.

We took our son and his family who had never been to the restaurant before, what a great evening. The fish curry was as good as the best restaurants in Barbados according to him and his wife. For us we just enjoyed as always the food the service and the great setting.

Wonderful food making a very special 30th birthday meal ,particularly enjoyed the crab languini,Indonesian fish curry, the fillet steak and monk fish . The only negative comment we would make was that the Singer in the lounge bar on the Sunday evening was poor and too loud and not in keeping with Rick Steins.
