About Urban Reef Restaurant

The Urban Reef is an informal bar, café, deli and restaurant located at the newly transformed Overstrand on Boscombe promenade. This unique location offers panoramic views over the stunning Bournemouth Bay and to the Purbecks and beyond.

The team behind the Urban Beach Hotel are hugely excited to have had the opportunity to design, build and operate the Urban Reef and have injected the same level of detail, passion and commitment that has already turned the Urban Beach into a respected award winning local business.

Committed to fresh, local & seasonal produce, committed to ethics and sustainability, committed to smiling, having fun and working really really hard to achieve something amazing. Please come and pay us a visit. We opened in May 2009, and have been working frantically every day to create a venue we really want you to fall in love with. There are many many local restaurants so we never rest on our laurels and strive to continually impress you. We're open all winter seven days per week, but please check our opening times before setting out! You can even book your table right now online here with just a couple of clicks. Clever!

From my first contact to book a table for 5 outside due to social distancing through to the payment of the bill the service was excellent.

We’ve been coming to you since you opened and love it every time it’s our special place. I did notice the staff were exceptionally friendly and welcoming this visit. I’m in the same trade in Southampton but my hotel bar and restaurant is closed at the moment. Well done for being open and for making it a safe space and we will continue to support you whenever we can. Bridget, mo and max

We had a lovely meal here for my Mums 70th birthday in Covid time. The food/service and atmosphere was fab, a lovely glass of prosecco, and brownie birthday plate surprise given free to celebrate my mums milestone. Very thoughtful Thanks

I booked a table for my friends birthday as were were down visiting for the weekend. We were welcomed with open arms (which is a nice change from the service you can sometimes receive in London!) and were given great seats upstairs. The food was delicious and the service we received was perfect - we weren't pestered but also didn't have an empty glass for very long! The evening was topped of with a thoughtful and lovely birthday treat for my friend. We would definitely come back again.

My Husband chose Urban Reef as the location for his Birthday Breakfast. We had been before and knew the food and service are always great! On this visit the staff exceeded our expectations, making my husbands celebration even more enjoyable by adding a few extra touches. Thank you! We will be back again.

Amazing food, drink (fab cocktails!), and service at the Urban Reef! COVID measures were taken very seriously, whilst still providing an excellent experience. What a great spot - hope we are lucky to return someday!
