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 daughter & I went to Urban Reef for dinner With the "eat out" discount. We booked a table giving contact details & £10 reservation fee per head. We were seated outside on the balcony. Setting is lovely on the beach. Staff very attentive & welcoming. I started with the lobster bisque & we both had steaks. Food & service was very good. Noticed there was little or nothing for the Lactose intolerant people of which my daughter is as there was no deserts that she could eat.

Food and service was excellent. We waited for my Daughter's pancakes as fresh batter was required, but we were informed of this, and were quite happy to wait and soak up the ambience.

We had a great team lunch there, as a fellow local business we like to support businesses like Urban Reef. Great food, great staff and brilliant value especially with the Eat Out to Help Out scheme.

It was great to have lunch on the upper deck with the sun shining whilst watching people going about relaxing on the beach. The food was perfect and served with a smile, what’s not to like! We’ll be back, thanks again

A lovely lunch with friends at our favourite place by the sea! We were meant to get married this year at Urban Reef but have chosen to postpone until next year - we love bringing our friends to what will be our wedding venue and could not recommend it enough! Best chips EVER

Would definitely recommend! Breakfast was lovely and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was very busy which meant our food took slightly longer than normal but it was definitely worth the wait!! I would recommend booking before hand as there was a wait for tables for those who hadn’t booked.

Our first evening out in a while and it was very enjoyable. The steak was cooked beautifully and was very tasty. We loved the pistachio ice cream too. Every effort has been taken to make our visit safe and will def go again

Booked in at Urban Reef for Sunday breakfast at 10.45am, we arrived early, but as accommodating as ever and seated us straight away. Food was amazing as always and a lovely pot of tea. My friends from Devon visiting for the weekend also loved the place. We then went on the beach and back at teatime for pizza and wine. Love the atmosphere, great music, great service.
