Had the fish chips mushy peas and tartare sauce. The fish was cooked to perfection with the most delicious batter, the mushy peas were divine with a lovely delicate flavour. Unfortunately a majority of the thick cut chips were raw potato inside, not cooked very well at all and the tartare had a very bland flavour. My partner had the seafood curry which he said tasted amazing, starters were also lovely. We would try it again as the fish is definitely their speciality. Beautiful views from the harbour dining area, with great ambience and relaxed service

Had a meal at Sandbanks in bar area. Restaurant was fully booked. Bar staff work hard. Waiting staff are disorganised and slow. Some more interested in posing than working. Ordered drinks that sat on the bar for 10 mins warming up. Went to collect myself. Bar staff were openly criticising waiting staff for ignoring drinks and customers. Food as decent as always but atmosphere spoilt by staff issues and surly waiting staff. It’s a restaurant and customers are your priority. Don’t think you are more important. Lose that ethos and you will suffer the consequences.

Stunning view, excellent food. I can highly recommend the Indonesian seafood curry and the kids menu. So refreshing to see choices such as salt and pepper squid and mussels for children.

We really enjoyed our visit to Rick Stein´s the food was spectacular, I loved the mussels as a starter and my monkfish was incredible. It was not as pricey as I was expecting. The views of the sea are incredible. Unfortunately we went for dinner so when the sun went down we were not able to enjoy the views as much. I recommend going for lunch to be able to enjoy them during the whole meal. Service was impeccable, attentive and efficient at all times.

Lovely meal, fabulous, friendly and good humoured service. We rang an hour before planned reservation to say four not five attending and could we move to bar area to allow our Labrador to join us - the receptionist arranged this immediately. Fantastic meal.

Lacking the vibrant flavours you expect from this restaurant, on a personal level the fish was overcooked almost crispy, the side dishes of veg lacking anything to make them special

We came for the set menu which was a great price and really tasty. The service was really good and the restaurant was very clean and tidy. The only negative feedback was after our meal when out around the back of the restaurant to look at the view and there was rubbish at the bottom of the steps leading to the restaurant

We had a lovely lunch from the set price menu. The choices were quite varied and I particularly enjoyed the sand sole with brown shrimp. The staff were attentive but unobtrusive. Love the decor and artwork.

The staff are all very welcoming without being over effusive. The food was excellent, the sashimi was commented on especially. Mrs Bennett’s fish soup was extremely good. The saki also good. We think we prefer Rick Stein ‘s Spanish wine to the Rick Stein Burgundy which we tried this time, but that is a matter of personal taste rather than quality! All in all another very good visit, superb view, good food and excellent service on a special 92 nd birthday for my brother in law
