We first visited WestBeach when it very first opened probably about 8 years ago, there was just nowhere better to be on a lovely sunny afternoon, great fish, lovely wine, sitting right on the edge of the sandy beach with a great view of both good and bad, sights walking along the promenade. Subsequent return visits saw it slowly deteriorate, in service and decor, ending up with the feeling of a neglected and rundown restaurant. Much as the previous review says.
Poor old Bournemouth… it is a complete nightmare to try and find somewhere decent to eat if you want to be any more daring than Cafe Rouge – all rather depressing really. A couple of years ago a new restaurant opened called the Print Room, which was fantastic, and so when we went back this year we were really sad to see that it had closed down, and not being able to bring ourselves to going to Zizzi decided to have a look at WestBeach again.
We were pleasantly surprised when we visited in September 2010 to see that they have made some improvements. They have smartened up the interior so it looks a lot fresher, the food is still of a really good standard, the service was really efficient and friendly. Between the four of us we had had a really good meal including a well prepared seafood platter, my husband had the mussels (no beards!), I had the sea bass which was cooked really well. I hope the earlier reviewer will give it another try, we certainly will next time we are down.
