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!
Great to be back at one of our favourite restaurants after lockdown and enjoyed a fab lunch to celebrate my husbands birthday - you never disappoint and the lovely weather was an added bonus
We had breakfast with our young family upstairs at Urban Reef which was a great experience. The food was really very good and the service was excellent. There was a good choice on the menu. The view from our table was great. They adhere to Covid guidelines which was good to see
Excellent food, great location and really friendly staff. First meal out after lockdown, felt very safe and well looked after. Will be back soon!
We had an amazing lunch and would not hesitate to return! The views were stunning, it literally felt like we were on holiday...except we were wearing coats! The food was outstanding, we had Nachos and the Chicken Burger and both were spot on...delicious, full of flavour and plentiful. Service was quick but not too quick meaning we never felt rushed. It felt very well organised and safe even during these difficult times. We can’t wait to return soon :-)
Beautiful place to sit and enjoy lovely food. Very friendly staff and excellent value for money. So glad you have survived the pandemic: it’s good to be able to eat with you again. We’ll be back next week with friends.
Great breakfast and you guys are just getting back into the swing of things! Here’s to a fantastic summer
As ever great experience. The laid back, friendly but efficient service and yummy food always a good time 😄. Happy days
once for dinner and once for brunch straight after lockdown. 2 adults and 1 kid and all around it was great given everyone is fresh back! staff were very friendly and great with our child running around. Definitely book in and get the upstairs view of the sea!!
Simon and the team are fantastic. All of the staff were great with our kids and the food was amazing! My wife, being an American, is very picky with her burgers and she said it is the best burger she has had in the UK since she moved here 10 years ago!
Considering Covid restrictions we had a lovely meal, great to be able to visit again.
Urban Reef is my go-to local restaurant. If the amazing views weren't enough, the atmosphere, service and staff are excellent and the food is gorgeous. Thank you Urban Reef!
Splendid service. Beautiful scenery. Great atmosphere
Love this place! Great food, drink, views and people :)
Such a lovely & memorable lunch to celebrate end of lockdown. Great food, service & beautiful location. Thank you so much Urban Reef 🥰
Great to be back and food and service were excellent. Many thanks for a very enjoyable lunch (3 hours 😊)!
What a wonderful location to have a fab lunch.
I really enjoyed the amazing food and service! Clearly lots of work has been going on behind the scenes because of COVID-19 and I felt really relaxed so thank you for all of your hard work!
Staff were fantastic

The food was excellent Service was fantastic What more could you ask for
A fabulous breakfast, excellent service & friendly staff. Thank you!
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
