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!

Food excellent Service excellent What more can one ask
Wonderful atmosphere as always, our favourite beachside restaurant, attentive friendly staff and Very accommodating with our young children, thank you again, already looking forward to next time 😊
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 🥂🍾❤️💕
Lovely lunch on the deck on a sunny day in October which felt like July. Food was great, wine was lovely, and the view was stunning.
Always such a relaxing, friendly place to come and enjoy a night out with loved ones and friends
Everything was excellent
