West Beach Restaurant

Pier Approach, BOURNEMOUTH, BH2 5AA

1 rosettes

For a seafood restaurant, West Beach couldn't have a better location: it's almost on the beach, with a fabulous decked terrace and great views. It's a friendly place with clued-up staff, done out in pastels and light woods and with an open-plan kitchen. Some meat and vegetarian dishes are on the menu, but it would be churlish to arrive here and pass up on the spankingly fresh seafood. A few preparations are pulled out of the classical repertoire - moules marinière, lobster thermidor - but in general the kitchen leaves no modern culinary stone unturned, giving hake the bourguignon treatment and serving it with spinach and mash, and partnering pan-fried John Dory with ham hock ballottine and emulsion and accompanying it with braised baby gem, celeriac and fondant potato. You could start with accurately pan-fried scallops, served with carrot purée and couscous, pickled raisins and coriander, go on to fish pie, and finish with a dessert from the short list: perhaps plum trifle.
