Superbly positioned right on the marine promenade, close to Bournemouth Pier, this place has views over sand and sea. It also serves the best seafood in town, whether grilled, baked, or in fish pies and stews. The menu usually lists haddock, sea bass, plaice, and shellfish (oysters, mussels, lobster). Nonfish dishes may include rib-eye steak and sesame mille-feuille with grilled sweet potato and eggplant. The simple wooden tables and large glass front lend a modern, minimalist
feel, and there's a narrow deck and terrace for open-air dining. In summer you can pick up ice cream and snacks from the adjacent takeout.
