We celebrated our honeymoon with a visit to Poole and a special meal at Rick Stein. The staff made us feel so special, the setting was incredible and food amazing! Even my husband who barely eats fish, loved trying the lobster! We discovered at the end our meal our family had paid for drinks and the meal and the staff had been wonderful arranging with them during the day!
Great food and service. As always.
Staff were polite and helpful, it was a cool windy night so they brought us several blankets and kept checking we were ok. Food was delicious as always and well presented
Outstanding food, the lobster was the best one I have ever had! Really delightful staff, we are looking forward to coming back again soon
The view was lovely and the casual breakfast was tasty and well presented. Looking forward to our next visit - already booked!
Lovely breakfast. The best coffee. Staff friendly and attentive. We look forward to our next visit.
Excellent booking and front of house service, very welcoming. Spotlessly clean restaurant and terrace. The wobbly table on the terrace spoilt the occasion some what.
Love the terrace area and hope you keep it once the indoors re - opens
We are outside and the weather was blowy. In normal times it would have been lovely
Had a early evening dinner on the terrace looking over Poole Harbour. Fantastic location, food and Service and very good Covid safe provisions in place.
Had to rush our meal because of the arrival of rain so spoilt the experience but no fault of the restaurant or staff. Great location
We had a nice dining experience at Sandbanks restaurant.
Great food, drink, setting and service.
Beautiful location and amazing food and lovely staff to
Absolutely lovely to enjoy breakfast on the terrace! It would be wonderful if this could continue to be an option once we are aloud back inside. Wonderful staff, very attentive and the eggs royale 👌
We have visitied Rick Stein restaurant in Sandbanks two days in the row for breakfast. Absolutely beautiful food, service and fantastic views 👍 keep up with the good work 👍
Fantastic first meal out in over a year. Thanks team
Under the unusual circumstances the staff did well. The maitre de was so helpful and welcoming. The food was lovely but my dish seemed to be missing the truffle but everything else was good.
Unfortunately the outdide terrace is not geared up for UK weather! We were cold snd wet, the parasols were useless, they could not cover the tables! We had to abandon and take our food with us. Still the staff although getting wet were doinng theif best
Amazing food and view from the seating outside. Mussels were the best I've ever had. Portions were surprisingly generous. Reasonable prices for the quality of the food and location.
great restaurant and great staff, looking forward to opening fully :-)
What more can I say, Rick Stein is my favourite chef, the restaurant is beautiful and has a superb atmosphere and setting. For my main course I had the braised Brill and I can honestly say - it was brill. I asked the waiter if the chef could give me the recipe for the sauce and I was provided with all the information. I will definitely try this at home, as I have with many of Rick's recipes.
Loveky meal ! It was a bit chilly as the weate has cooled right down but blankets and heaters were supplied
A lovely experience in the April springtime! We managed to dodge the rain, just about and thanks to the team for great service and food they delivered. A great experience.
Enjoyed our outside lunch , seemed to go very well , lovely ambiance overlooking the the harbour , beautiful!!
