I visited Banque & Bohem for my birthday (77th) and could not have been more pleased. The host Annabel was charming and attentive although it was our first time. We started with the most tender calamari I have ever had and had me the pork chop which I have to say was very substantial and my partener had the beef ribs both were cooked very well and were delicious. After this I said to Annabel about a dessert that I had on a cruise ship that was really good being the perfect host she did no more than go to the bar to arrange this for me and also a birthday cake with one candle. This to me makes the difference between good and exceptional. Thank you Banque & Bohem and especialy Annabel for making this a birthday to remember.
Ben though we it was for breakfast we booked a table online as we were led to believe that this hotspot was exceptionally busy at all times. We arrived to find that breakfast wasn’t being served because the ‘chef hadn’t turned up’ in addition the staff seemed surprised that we were even able to book online and had no knowledge that we were coming in.... Why offer a table booking service if online if you are not actively montitoring online bookings. A complete Very disappointing,reluctant to book again.
Love this new restaurant. The decor, ambience, food and service are all fab.
The food was great the staff and manager was very accommodating and very friendly. Highly recommend.
Service charge disappointing seeming as the restaurant area has general drinkers in and people sat at the bar. Not sure if the venue is a restaurant or a bar? Nice staff, but in need of more. However, the food was really good. General vibe needs some work. Could be great, just don’t mix dinners with drinkers. We had a special occasions and someone came and asked us for a chair from the table and took it, like in a pub. To have a service charge when dinners experience things like that is odd.
We had a fantastic dinner at Banque & Bohem - the food was outstanding and the service exceptional. Would highly recommend and will be back!
The staff could not have done enough for us . We were so impressed. Would recommend in a heartbeat. We will be going back to this classy establishment!
B&B never fails to provide top quality food, service and a great atmosphere for a fun night. You leave feeling special and valued as a customer and friend, This is truly bournemouths answer to cheers in Boston ...
A really lovely vibe and very attentive staff. The waitress seemed new and struggled a bit, we only got 6 out of the 7 mains but another member of staff saw to us a dealt with the situation. We all loved it and would go again. The starters were amazing! Reasonably priced cocktails.
Excellent meal for New Year’s Eve, beautifully cooked food and very pleasant staff.
Would definitely recommend and we will be back soon :)
Staff were really lovely, food was great and got a great set menu for New Year’s Eve.
Best food I have had in Dorset in a long time. Great food choices, wine list and cocktails. Can’t wait to see the new areas they are opening here in 2018 for further dining and private parties. Highly recommend
I've been in a couple of times now, once for late night drinks, the other for a meal with friends. A fab new venue. I absolutely love the interior! The food, drinks and team are lovely too. Definitely worth a visit!
Enjoyed a late Sunday lunch on 26 November. Very impressive premises and I like the way the renovations have been made to the original building. We were warmly welcomed and bar staff looked after us well. Waiting staff could do with a bit more confidence but we accept they are new to the job. Nice selection of Sunday roasts and the choice of vegetables served were excellent. Friends had the beef, which they said was good - my gammon was Ok.
Would definitely go again and sample more of the dinner menu and enjoy the wonderful surroundings.
