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!
My favourite restaurant for many years now. Staff are always willing go that extra mile to make us feel welcome - whether it's letting us stow our bags whilst we go for a swim or a surf, providing activity packs for the kids or letting us use the upstairs space for remote working. The atmosphere is very relaxed, food is great and nothing beats those incredible sea views!
Fabulous lunch as always Staff friendly, safe and attentive Will be back for takeaways
Absolutely fantastic lunch once again! My family don’t want to go anywhere else when they visit. We had good food, excellent service and you even turned on the sunshine for a wonderful view. What’s not to like, really! Thank you for being on Boscombe Prom, very much hope to see you again in the not too distant future xx

Food was great as always.
Soup was delicious Sunday roast the best
We went for Sunday lunch in lieu of a birthday dinner with two other family members. We had the roast lamb and roast beef, with an amazing amount of veg. To be honest I traded my meat for hubby’s veg, I’m not big on meat. Roast parsnips, carrots, potatoes, Yorkshire pud, gravy and cauliflower cheese. We were the last people there on a Sunday. Couldn’t ask for a better experience. Thank you ☺️
Wonderful,as always, lobster was delicious and atmosphere, service, staff, spot on, well done once again, and god willing we’ll be back xxx 🥂🍾❤️💕
