Bournemouth is fast becoming one of the south coast's most exciting dining destinations. From Poole to Boscombe, new Bournemouth restaurants are opening all the time, expanding the range of options available to the people of Dorset. It's the kind of place where travel agents become craft beer and sourdough pizza joints overnight, and a town where traditional British fish and chips is served next door to authentic dishes from obscure parts of Thailand. With so much choice everyone needs a guide to the local scene, and with Quandoo, you'll find out exactly where to find the hottest restaurants in Bournemouth.

    Start the night the right way at restaurants in Bournemouth's city centre

    One of the driving forces behind Bournemouth's restaurant boom has been its thriving nightlife. A magnet for the south coast's LGBT clubbers, a major destination for hen nights and stag do's, and possessing a big student community, the town has no shortage of dining options for anyone who plans to party all night long. In areas like the Triangle, you'll find superb Bournemouth restaurants serving the perfect preparation for a great night out. From woodfired gluten-free pizzas and Mexican street food to light Thai noodle dishes and build-a-burger menus at craft beer pubs, clubbers and bar-hoppers will always find great meals at restaurants in Bournemouth.

    Make a date at Bournemouth restaurants for a delicious lunch

    There's no shortage of places to relax with friends either. Bournemouth's restaurant scene includes plenty of contemporary cafes which serve paninis and sandwiches stuffed with locally sourced beef, cheeses and pickles. You can enjoy a filling lunch with friends and couple the excellent food with a gourmet coffee brewed by expert baristas. Alternatively, there are restaurants in Bournemouth which keep British traditions alive, serving up afternoon tea where the scones are smothered in whipped cream and jam, and the cake selection will satisfy any sweet tooth.

    Enjoy the finest Dorset produce at restaurants in Bournemouth

    Bournemouth restaurants aren't just popping up in a gastronomic backwater. They are actually at the heart of one of England's major agricultural regions, which means one thing for foodies: plenty of fresh, high-quality produce. Local restaurants in Bournemouth tap into Dorset's farming sector in a big way, offering regional cheeses like blue vinney or eldren (and some gloriously pungent cheddars), as well as organic vegetables and rare-breed pork and beef. There's crab and seafood from the local fleet, and plenty of irresistible pies and pates, created by artisan food companies. At Bournemouth restaurants, you can try them all, and it's a real gastronomic treat.

    Steak is a speciality at Bournemouth's restaurants

    Steak is one of the highlights at Bournemouth's restaurants, and meat eaters won't be disappointed when they venture out to local eateries. On one hand, you can settle down at high-class brasseries, where the steaks are aged for 30 days according to a strict field-to-fork ethic, and every single option will be paired with the perfect wine. On the other, there are informal steak restaurants in Bournemouth that take their inspiration from across the Atlantic. Order up Mexican and American-style steaks with lobster mac and cheese, plenty of sauces and home-cooked bread, and match them with the cocktails of your choice to get your evening started in style.

    Tour India's food culture at restaurants in Bournemouth

    Indian food is another standout attraction at Bournemouth's restaurants, and diners can sample dishes from all over the subcontinent's diverse regions to find something they adore. Some places stick to the age-old traditions of the British curry house, serving flawless examples of rogan josh, lamb vindaloos or chicken kormas. Then again, others are more experimental, using less well known ingredients like shatkora fruit from Bangladesh to create seductive and subtle dishes. Bournemouth has restaurants where you can enjoy your favourite classic curries, or start a new culinary love affair, and you can always find the best places to dine with Quandoo.
