    Overall a good night but we had several issues - waiter brought wrong wine, one starter was forgotten until we asked again for it, mussels were cold. We thought there were insufficient waiters. They seemed to be doing their best, and were polite and apologetic. To compensate, we were not charged for the wine.

    We visited the restaurant on a very quiet and cold Thursday evening. Because it was very quiet, the atmosphere was subdued and the lighting was not conducive to creating a warm atmosphere. However, the service and the quality of the food were both excellent. We will definitely visit again.

    Absolutely beautiful food. So tasty and very satisfying. Great choices and very generous portions. The staff were lovely. The setting is very nice. Only draw back is we felt it was very cold which in turn made us feel a little uncomfortable. Highly recommend to anyone who loves classy, tasteful flavours

    I’ve been really looking forward to my visit to Sandbanks as I love The Newport and the Newport Bakeries. The bread and butter is always a winner, but was was warm on the outside and cold on the inside. I had a burger which looked great but the actual burger was underwhelming and looked like it was mass produced. Overall, I felt that it was trying and charging to be more than it could muster.

    We have visited The Newport a few times but this was our first visit to The Sandbanks and I have to say we were not disappointed. The Sandbanks is every bit as good as The Newport. We had the most exquisite three course meal, which was to the highest of of quality. The food really was so tasty and full of flavour. We will definitely be back soon. Wonderful to have such a great bistro on our doorstep that provides this level of cuisine at such value for money. Wonderful work Jamie and Kelly.

    The whole evening was a joy, unfortunately at this time of the year many restaurants are very quiet as was the case here. However it was a birthday celebration so don’t behave a choice regarding when we can visit, but we will again.

    Sandbanks has become our "go to" place for a treat meal. The menu is interesting, without being pretentious. The food is excellent, the service friendly and professional. We're always impressed by the warm welcome given by the staff to all their customers, regardless of whether they are in for a meal, or just for a cup of coffee.

    A great evening out was spoiled half way through by a large party that arrived and treated the restaurant as it it was a Wetherspoons. Noisy brash children and adults who didn't have any concern or respect for the other diners in this relatively intimate restaurant. Yes it was Christmas Eve but this was not what I expected in this restaurant.
