It’s a great how much choice there is for seafood restaurants living by the seaside. And being a huge shellfish fan, you can imagine my excitement about West Beach‘s legendary Lobster and Burger night – A chance to indulge in a whole lobster or gourmet burger for only £20… I’m there!
West Beach is one of Dorset’s award winning seafood restaurants, its prime location on Bournemouth’s beach front means you’re face to face with the sand, sea and pier. Seafood is the focal point of the menu featuring fresh daily caught fish. The decor is gorgeous with a very modern yet beachy feel and the atmosphere is perfectly relaxed. I really enjoyed the stunning beach view from the table and also how wonderful it is see the fresh food being prepared by the chefs.
As you may have already guessed I ordered the lobster which came with salad and fries. Cooked in a variety of different ways to suit all palettes and taste buds, I decided to have mine with garlic butter. In all honesty the lobster was a little chewy, but the claws definitely made up for it. Ever the pudding lover, I indulged with a lime cheesecake for desert – c’est magnifique!
Overall, I had a lovely evening at West Beach. It is a higher price tag than the majority of restaurants in the area, but justifiably so due to it’s friendly and welcoming service, stunning location and desirable seafood menu. If you missed out on booking a table for the Lobster and Burger night – don’t worry as West Beach has plenty more exciting events coming soon so watch this space.
