About WestBeach Restaurant
A seafood restaurant on the beach. The stunning location makes WestBeach a beautiful place for any occasion. Named Bournemouth’s only ‘Local Gem’ in the Waitrose Good Food guide 2016.
We pride ourselves on using the freshest, local seafood, served in a relaxed beachside environment, encompassing everything you would hope for in a visit to Bournemouth.
Our contemporary styling through the restaurant features an open-plan kitchen so diners can watch the chefs at work, or simply relax and enjoy the stunning sea view – whatever the weather – through folding glass doors opening onto our sun soaked decked terrace.
My husband and I were not quite sure what to expect given that restaurants can still only serve food and drinks outside. The weather wasn’t looking too promising either so even more trepidation. We needn’t have worried at all - it’s amazing what WestBeach have done with the marquee on the beach - it’s so welcoming and cosy in there - can it be a permanent fixture ?? Food, drink and service first - class. I would definitely recommend a visit you won’t be disappointed.
Great to have the meal in the sand
Limited menu Clueless waiter Very disappointing...poor value
Excellent fresh fish as always. We had the bream and bass, best fish we’ve eaten. Eating in a flapping marquee on a very windy beach somehow added to the atmosphere.
Good food, some things more reasonably priced than others. Excellent service.
Loved the day DJ and our Portuguese waitress was lovely. Good food and lovely to have the sand between our toes whilst dining.
We did not stay. You used to be a quality fish restaurant, now apparently a beach bar with loud music and DJ. Killed any atmosphere, so we did not stay. Very disappointing!
There should be heaters for the outside space. Other than that nice beach restaurant to visit in Bournemouth
Must be one of the best spots in bournemouth! The seafood is delicious and the location is right on the beach so the views and atmosphere are amazing
Drinks way too overpriced and had about 3 sips per cocktail.
Atmosphere was great, felt like I was in a tropical paradise. We realise it isn't a super expensive restaurant but were a bit shocked at how small the portions were. Also when my coffee arrived, it had clearly overflowed and they had not bothered to re-do it or clean it up and there was something red all over the rim of the cup that looked a lot like blood. Probably will not be returning.
Absolutely fabulous! Thank you for a great lunch in lovely and comfortable surroundings with wonderful people looking after us. We couldn't have chosen a better place to celebrate coming out of Lockdown. How you produce and present food so good in the current circumstances is beyond me. Thank you!
Very expensive for a standard breakfast with a cardboard cup of coffee.
Oh my gosh we had the best time - delicious food, lovely atmosphere, great outdoor seating which was covered from the rain. Just perfect
Amazing food service and experience overall thanks !
WestBeach Restaurant is in a great location. It's fabulous to sit and watch the sea as you eat your meal. The staff were really great and took all necessary precautions. I found the menu a little limited, otherwise we enjoyed our breakfast.
We were served very efficiently by Claudia Very enjoyable experience and great food!
Lovely food, quick service & great views - Thank you
Excellent service from friendly staff and superb breakfast .
Amazing setting - really nicely done. Staff we all friendly and attentive. All of the food and coffee was great and well priced. Good selection and great vegan options. My only complaint is that the bloody Mary’s we ordered were just tomato juice and vodka in a teeny tiny plastic cup and cost £9 each which is way too much for what it was.
Delicious grilled fish and great staff!
Menu appears to have been restricted compared to prior year and local fish of the day was, but cannot be, salmon that’s just not local.
My husband and I always go to WestBeach when we come to Bournemouth for a break usually four times a year and we have never been disappointed. The service, atmosphere,food and drink are always first class and we wouldn’t go anywhere else. We have had a really tough year like lots of people, so to go to WestBeach and relax for a couple of hours is such a treat for us. Thank you to all the staff at WestBeachXx
Fantastic food, fantastic location, amazing staff, we highly recommend Westbeach.
Great professional service, lovely atmosphere and picturesque location. Will be back again soon.
